It has never been more important for universities to take additional steps and ensure that their students have the tools necessary to make it through to the finish line. Studies show that those with some college but no degree earn essentially the same as someone with no college at all. At LSU, students are our priority, and everyone here, no matter what their position, is here to make their journey toward a degree as smooth as possible. Commencement should be on every students’ mind from the very beginning of their academic career. Every day should bring you at least a little closer to graduation.
