Freshman Orientation

LSU has two major functions for advising incoming freshmen:

  • Spring Invitational , which is by invitation only, and
  • Summer Orientation, which consists of one of several 2-day sessions throughout the summer.

Both functions follow a similar format. On the first day, students take placement tests in subjects such as Math, Physics, and foreign languages. Students also receive information on various campus activities. On the second day, students receive their test scores, meet with a counselor or academic advisor, and schedule courses for the summer and/or fall semester.

If you have any questions regarding these functions, please contact The Office of Orientation at (225) 578-2634.
