The LSU Difference
A Little LSU Extra
At LSU, your experience entails more than education or research. It's about community, culture, and collaboration. We aren't solely focused on what you'll learn but also who you'll become in the process. Louisiana is known for its warm hospitality, where some businesses give what’s called “lagniappe”, a Cajun expression meaning a little something extra or bonus gift. As a member of the LSU graduate community, you’ll receive top notch educational and research opportunities, but you’ll gain an abundance of lagniappe along the way. Welcome to Tiger Country!
