10 Thing to Know Before Coming To LSU

Hating BAMA isn't the only thing that you need to know about our school.

10 Thing to Know Before Coming To LSU
Best Colleges Online

1) The entirety of "Callin' Baton Rouge" by Garth Brooks

And at least the chorus of "From Louisiana" and "Louisiana Saturday Night". No matter what bar or tailgate you go to, you'll hear all of these at least twice throughout your time there.

2) It's a marathon, not a sprint

SEC tailgating is like nothing you've ever experienced before, I'm just going to leave it at that.

3) Death Valley is louder than you'd expect

Sure everyone has told you this, but nobody can prepare you for the roar of that first home game.

4) The alma mater is law

No matter where you're from or where you're headed, you always grab whoever is next to you and sing the alma mater with your tiger family every football game. Sure, nobody gets the words right even though they're on the screen in front of us, but it is a beautiful bonding moment nonetheless.

5) LSU parking is no joke

PARK WHERE YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO. Take it from someone who's been ticketed and towed for the smallest things, just follow the rules.

6) Outtakes/ Take 5

These are the best part of having a meal plan, its like having a super CVS within walking distance of your dorm, but the CVS has sushi, pizza and mozzarella sticks.

7) There is a Starbucks in the design building

LSU's best kept secret, and this one takes Starbucks gift cards, you're welcome.

8) The McDonald's in the Union is always serving ice cream

No really, throughout my time here their machine has never been broken. Yeah, a McDonald's where the ice cream machine always works. You read that right.

9) During exams there are stress dogs in Middleton Library

Honestly thats enough of a reason to love LSU I don't even need to say anything else.

10) LSU is Home

We're all tigers through and through, and nobody can take that away from us. Everyone here has purple and gold running through their veins and is going to welcome you into our community with as much love as they have to offer. This campus is our home, and we can't wait for it to be yours too.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
