CURRICULUM FOCUS
Louisiana State University and Agricultural & Mechanical College Art and Design Program
UDC Contributor

Dedicate your career to bringing more beauty into the world: Study landscape architecture at LSU. It’s the number one program of its kind in the country. Students plant the seeds for successful careers in designing parks, gardens, waterfronts, and community spaces in need of restoration after disasters. Got a great layout in mind for an urban garden project? You can draft up your plans at the CADGIS lab, one of LSU’s many design studios and workspaces. If offers the latest computer-aided design software and large scale printing services. You’ll get plenty of out-of-lab experience as well. Students complete semester-long internships with landscape architecture firms across the nation. Like these 2016 students, you could end up in Brooklyn building a chaise lounge big enough for two, or in Houston preparing planting layouts for a community development project. And if you want firsthand experience observing international outdoor beauty standards, then add a trip abroad to your schedule. In 2014 students spent nine days traveling France and the Netherlands to explore the architectural differences in these nearby nations. You can also get an education in vegetation right at LSU. The 14-acre Hilltop Arboretum is a great place to study flora or find temporary relief from your busy schedule. Soon enough you’ll be counted among alumni who are developing landscapes around the world.

Bachelor's in Environmental Engineering, Class of 2015

U The balance between being challenged and being given enough support by a group of extremely knowledgeable faculty and staff made the experience of pursuing a Master's in Environmental Engineering well worth it. Probably the most beneficial aspects of my time at LSU were the scholarship and career opportunities I gained through LSU's relationships with corporate partners. I received scholarships from Chevron and the Louisiana Water Environment Association, which allowed me to secure an internship with Chevron and eventually a full time position with Shell. I will always be a strong advocate for LSU's College of Engineering. Besides academics, LSU football on a Saturday night in Death Valley is unparalleled. Seriously, there is nothing like tailgating with 100,000 of your best friends and then watching your team win. Although these things are wonderful, my absolute favorite thing about LSU has to be walking around campus under the 100+ year old oak trees and reveling in the beauty of south Louisiana. I'm getting nostalgic just thinking about it.

Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering, Class of 2015

U The thing I liked most about LSU was that I always felt a sense of unity, whether that be at a football game, walking around the quad, or studying in the library. There were a lot of colorful personalities and diversity in our student base, and I felt that LSU allowed for everyone to be themselves and feel accepted. My program at LSU, engineering, provided me with the technical and team-oriented communication skills that have helped me tremendously thus far in my career. We were obviously taught a lot of the mathematics and theory, but we also received hands on experience through interactive lab experimentation, group projects, and presentations. For my sponsored senior design project, our group researched and tested load sensing devices to be used on bolts for well head assemblies in the oil field. I learned a lot through that experience.

Bachelor's in International Trade and Finance, Class of 2015

U I graduated with a bachelors degree in International Trade and Finance. This was a very unique degree that had a strong base of economics. If you have an interest in the world economy and how countries interact, this could be a great path for you to take. I really enjoyed the opportunity to take classes with international students while gaining a better understanding of the economy outside of the United States. In fact, one of my favorite parts about studying at LSU was the diversity of the student body. I met friends from New York to California spread across all of the United States, and I befriended international students from places like Copenhagen, Denmark. LSU offers the ultimate college experience with incredibly strong school spirit that's expressed everyday on campus. When they say we bleed purple and gold, they mean it. I get a feeling of pride when people ask me where I went to college and I can say that I am an LSU Tiger.

Austin
Bachelor's in Mechanical Engineering, Class of 2015

U As an out of state student, I always felt at home at LSU and that was probably the thing that I appreciated the most. When I visited LSU as a high school student my mom and I were walking to our hotel in the rain and multiple people stopped to check on us to see if we needed a ride. Smalls things like that are what make LSU what it is. Having a successful football team on campus was also nice and it created a fun environment and a community. I loved football season and try to make it back down for a game at least one a year.

What is the campus setting like?
U 1 Answer
U Answer by: Universities.com

This Southern U.S. university bursts with school spirit. Expect to see plenty of people wearing purple and gold as you walk through campus, especially during Tigers football season. (In fact, LSU’s mascot is a living, breathing Tiger. His name is Mike, and you can visit his habitat located across the street from the Tiger Stadium.) Campus is rife with old Live Oak trees, which give the setting a serene atmosphere. Also, LSU’s campus is hugged by two water sources: the Mississippi River on one side, and University Lake on the other. Many of the original campus buildings boast stunning Italian architecture with arched entryways and red clay roofs. From Parade Ground, a popular tailgating and Frisbee-playing spot, you have a clear view a 175-foot clock tower. Let’s just say you have no excuse for being late to class! Along with its natural and architectural beauty, LSU offers modern classroom buildings, recreation facilities, dining areas, and residence halls. First-year students can live in Residential Colleges where they can room with classmates in their majors. Live together, learn together, and succeed together. Students who are over 21 or are married can stay in family and graduate apartments. That way you can bring your loved ones to LSU!

What are the online learning and extension/adult learning opportunities?
U 1 Answer
U Answer by: Universities.com

You can earn college credit by taking undergraduate courses through LSUOnline. Check out Continuing Education’s online course list; it features classes on technical writing, accounting, graphic design, literature, foreign languages, and more. You can even take courses in a self-paced format. Or, you could pursue one of three undergraduate certificates: business communication, human services, and liberal studies. Certificates are a great option if you want to get your feet wet with college coursework to discover your ideal area of study while still earning credit toward a degree. If you’re ready to commit to pursuing a fully online degree, peruse LSU’s list of online graduate programs. For starters, they offer business administration, social work, and kinesiology. But if you crave the on-campus experience, find out if there are any LSU campus branches closer to you. Campuses are located throughout Louisiana in cities like Alexandria and New Orleans. You can meet LSU’s programs where they are or virtually bring them to your home.

What are the athletic highlights?
U 1 Answer
U Answer by: Universities.com

If you ever doubted the seriousness and excitement with which the LSU fans take their school’s athletics, here’s a wakeup call: USA Today’s College Football Fan Index ranked LSU the number one school for tailgating in 2014. Where else can you spot fans roasting alligator over an open flame? Tiger pride runs through everyone’s blood in the LSU community—but none more than its live Tiger mascot, Mike. And LSU takes athletic competition just as seriously as it does its festivities. The NCAA Division I Tigers football team claimed three of LSU’s 47 total national championships. They’re known to pack the Tigers Stadium with upwards of 100,000 roaring fans. Also, the Lady Tigers have dominated indoor and outdoor track with their Tiger-like stride. Since 1987 they have won a total of 25 national championships. LSU athletes may wear purple, but they reach for the gold.
