    The cafeterias are both located near the residential dorms so it is easy to get food in between classes. The cafeterias also have long hours so they work with everyone's schedule. There is food / vendor areas conveniently located everywhere on campus within walking distance.

  • I am accepted here and planning to attend soon

    LSU has a lot of food choices: insomnia cookies (open for the late night cookie lovers), Canes (for all chicken lovers), Chipotle (for the 21st century student), and the list goes on.

    Food is okay. The 5 is better than the 459 food wise, but the atmosphere at the 459 is better than the 5. Food at the Student is better, but it is fast food and you can always buy food at Outtakes or Take 5.

    There are TONS of food options everywhere. I don't understand how you couldn't find food if you don't have money. The only problem is that most of the options are either too expensive or not healthy.

    There is a sweet little Vietnamese place close by, as well as many other restaurants. At the orientation they even offered a vegetarian option which was sweet.

    The dining halls are conveniently located in an area where most students don't have to walk very far from their dorms. The food is wonderful and there are so many options! The Student Union also has many fast food options and is located in the center of campus.

    Greek Life is big if you want to be in it, and there are a lot of ways to get involved in Greek Life and Greek Life leadership. If this isn't your thing, there are also a lot of people who aren't in Greek Life.

    A great way to network and get involved right away. Greek life can benefit most people if it is for them and they find the right people to work with.
