Become a Tiger


Apply to LSU

Three letters can be woven into your soul. They can send shock waves down your spine when you hear their cadence yelled on game day, can become an integral part of your identity, and motivate you to leave your mark. Three letters can help you become a better leader, creator, or entrepreneur. They can become a family tradition, a rite of passage, or a new beginning: L-S-U.

Behind those three letters are mentors and memories: the professor who helps you identify your purpose, the tutor who challenges you to believe in yourself, the classmate who studies with you for that final test of the year, the friend who picnics with you in the Quad. Three letters can’t define you, but they can inspire you and change your life—forever.
