Laptop Requirement

Students declaring a major or minor in Mass Communication are required to have their own laptop computer with wireless internet access upon entering the first Mass Communication class. 



The Manship School has the highest entrance requirements across campus - and the best graduation rates. Put simply, once students get in, they stay in, achieve and graduate. We also offer a residential college living experience for freshmen to help students succeed that first year and make the transition from home and high school to college easier. Additionally, we offer more than $100,000 in scholarships every year that is above what LSU awards.
