Prospective Students

An exciting world awaits you at Louisiana State University!

If you’re seeking an education from a university that has nationally and internationally recognized programs, Louisiana State University is the place for you. LSU is one of only a handful of universities in the United States that are designated as a land-grant, sea-grant and space-grant institution. LSU is also the only university in Louisiana with a “very high research activity” designation by the Carnegie Foundation.

If you’re searching for affordability, LSU continually stands out as the most-affordable university among its peer institutions.

If you’re hoping to learn about a rich culture and history, Louisiana’s is influenced by our Spanish, French, African and Caribbean ancestry. From our food and music to our architecture and lifestyle, we are a people and culture of vibrancy and color.

If you’re looking to make friends that will last a lifetime, you’ll have numerous opportunities to do so in your classes, near the scenic lakes that are on campus, at a sporting event (LSU has 20 different athletic teams) or while visiting the habitat of LSU’s live mascot, a Bengal/Siberian mix tiger named Mike VII.

With about 30,000 students – including nearly 1,600 internationals from more than 100 countries – LSU offers more than 200 academic fields of study.

Join us at LSU and see how far you can go!
