LIFE AT LSU
We want your time at Louisiana State to be the best time of your life. With a student population of 31,414 students, you’re bound to find someone who shares the same interests as you. LSU boasts nearly 500 student organizations, so you’re bound to find a tribe of people who share your interests. In fact, LSU wants to help you fully develop and nourish your passions, which is why they created the LSU Discover program, a program that aims to support all undergraduate students by engaging in mentored scholarship, original research, or creative endeavors. When you’re not exploring your passions on campus and in the classroom, you might find yourself joining the ranks of Volunteer LSU students making a difference in the Baton Rouge community, enjoying crawfish, boiled shrimp, and jambalaya while tailgating before a big football game, or scoring a selfie with the famous mascot Mike the Tiger.
The Business Program has its own building that’s a very big part of LSU, and the professors are very professional and helpful. Some of them are Chinese. For some of them, English is their second language, so they speak more slowly and you can ask them questions after class in their office hours. That is very helpful.
CAREERS AT LSU
The Louisiana State University Olinde Career Center aims to help all Tigers, both past and present, identify and pursue career paths that encourage their talents and passions. LSU offers its students the ability to find and apply for jobs and internships through the Careers2Geaux portal, an online service where students and alumni can post their resumes for LSU’s career coaches to review, sign up for mock interviews, submit applications, request appointments with a campus career coach, and more. LSU also offers students the opportunity to participate in the Career Peer Program where peer mentors assist fellow students through education and advice in a one-on-one setting. LSU’s Career Center also hosts networking events for each area of study where corporations who have partnered with LSU are represented and can offer students work experience through internships, part-time jobs, and co-ops so students can get a taste of life in their field before graduation.
