My Life as an LSU Student

Back when I originally wrote this page I was still a student at LSU. Its been several years since I graduated but due to my great experiences at LSU I still want to be a part of the university as you can see through my site design and my articles on LSU sports results. Anyone who goes to LSU can't go away without taking a bit of the university with them and its an experience I believe all young Louisianians should have. There's so much going on there that you can't help but form bonds of unity with your fellow students, faculty, sports teams and the beautiful campus.
