Visit LSU

Come See What Inspiration Looks Like

From the 1,200 live oaks shading every path to the Italian-Renaissance inspired architecture dating back to the 1920s, our campus in Baton Rouge is considered one of the most beautiful in the country. It not only houses the classrooms and laboratories where our award-winning students and faculty chase their dreams but also our live tiger mascot. And if you visit at noontime, you’ll hear Memorial Tower chiming the LSU Alma Mater across the grounds. We think it’s something you should experience for yourself—but careful, you might not want to leave.
