Members of the Honors College get to schedule early, as long as they are in good academic standing. This is a great aspect of the Honors College because when trying to get into different courses, it’s always nice to have your first pick without having to worry about the class already being filled.
A Staff Working as Mentors
The Honors College has staff members who specialize in internships, career planning, community service, academic advising, study abroad, undergraduate research, and prestigious scholarships and fellowships, like the Rhodes, Truman, Goldwater, and Marshall scholarships.
Smaller Class Size
At the Honors College, classes are smaller in size. This makes learning more interactive, and gives students a better opportunity to have a relationship with their professors and classmates.
The Honors House
The Honors House, made up of East and West Laville Halls, are the residence halls reserved for members of the Honors College. When living in the same residence hall as your classmates, it makes it easy to form study groups and get to know them better! Also, the Honors House was completely renovated a few years ago.
In the past 11 years, LSU has produced as many or more Truman Scholars than four Ivy League Universities! Also, in 2013, LSU produced a Fulbright scholar, two Truman scholars, and a Udall scholar. All of these scholars receive extensive advising from the Honors College staff.
