Join us for Family Weekend on Friday, September 21 through Sunday, September 23! All family members of LSU students are invited to campus for a weekend of activities, programs, and the chance to see the LSU Tigers take on LA Tech under the lights of Tiger Stadium. Family Weekend activities allow parents and families to reconnect with the university and enjoy the campus energy on game day.

  • Only registered family members will be allowed access to Family Weekend-sponsored events.
  • In addition to the all-you-care-to-eat, southern-style brunch buffet, the Jazz Brunch will also feature a live Jazz Band, door prizes, and end-of-weekend slideshow.
