Sure LSU students gripe about everything from parking to the weather to questions about academics and more, but rarely will you meet a student who will actually tell you they wish they had gone somewhere else. The overall experience of LSU outweighs any factor students could imagine. There is an overwhelming sense of pride and allegiance to the University that unites all LSU students. The phrase, "I bleed purple and gold," holds more true than anyone could imagine.
LSU is all about experiences. It's the experiences of community, whether it be through football games, through nightlife, through more academic organizations, or through living on campus. Students appreciate the fact they are at something far bigger than themselves. The size of the University presents students with opportunities to do so much from getting involved academically to finding a boyfriend or girlfriend. It's about the experiences of involvement from joining a frat to working on campus to not doing anything at all. LSU seems to offer anything any student could imagine. The experience of going to LSU is so unique and exciting, students cannot even fathom what it would be like to have gone somewhere else.
