Vaccination Update from President Tate

August 19, 2021

Dear LSU students,

For those first-year students that have arrived on campus and are participating in Welcome Week activities, I’d like to take this opportunity to formally welcome you to LSU. For those returning students, we look forward to seeing you back on campus and are excited about the start of classes next week. 

Please take a few minutes to watch this video, which provides an update on our fall COVID mitigation protocols. For those who are as of yet unvaccinated, I’d like to remind you there are a number of locations on campus where you can get vaccinated. And if you’ve already been vaccinated, please let us know. In addition to vaccination sites, LSU has three on-campus testing locations. Everything you need can be found at the LSU Roadmap website.

Again, welcome to LSU. If we all accept personal responsibility for our health and safety, I’m confident we will have a successful fall semester.


William F. Tate IV
LSU President
