Family Orientation

Parents and Families are also invited to attend Family Orientation to learn more about the programs, services and resources available here at LSU. That is why we’ve created a special orientation program just for families! You don’t want to miss this day full of learning what LSU has to offer students and families during their time at LSU.

  • Tour the Residence Hall where your student will be living
  • Learn how meal plans and TigerCASH work
  • Be in the know about financial aid and scholarships
  • Meet other LSU parents and hear firsthand the advice they have for incoming families
  • Learn how to join the Family Association and about the events offered for families throughout the year!
