What impressed you positively?

"The facilities they have are AMAZING! I was thoroughly shell shocked. At first I did not think LSU was going to be in my top choices of schools but after the tour and being there its definitely shot to the top. Also EVERYONE is nice, even the construction workers and janitors. Everyone was genuinely caring and kind. Also gave me a free hat as a souvenier" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"Its still under construction. The area looked like the ghetto and the first few floors where scary but then once you got to the admissions floor and also the renovated floors as well as the academic building it was AMAZING! Like going to a corporate office. Also the exercise facility is amazing and FREE! If I did go there though I would have to get used to the heat and humidity which is something I can definitely handle! Oh another thing that they should change is putting all lectures on video. I know that most people worry about people not attending class but actually being able to re-hear the lecture is very helpful. If they changed that LSU would definitely jump to #1 for me."
