About the Area
With its Italian Renaissance-style buildings
nestled amongst the stately oaks and broad
magnolias made famous in its Alma Mater,
LSU is truly a joy to behold. The 2000-acre
campus, bordered on its western edge by the
mighty Mississippi River, was named a
"botanical joy" and was listed as one of the
20 most beautiful campuses in America in
The Campus as a Work of Art.Stretching from Milford Wampold Memorial
Park, affectionately known as "Baton Rouge
Beach," to the City-Brooks Community Park
golf course, the LSU lakes-University Lake and
City Park Lake-lie on LSU's eastern edge and
provide a scenic backdrop for the residence
halls and fraternity and sorority houses. The
lakes are an outdoor hotspot, and at any time
of day you can find people jogging around,
fishing in, or kayaking on them.Forty-six buildings on the LSU campus are
listed on the National Register of Historic
Places. Also on the National Register of
Historic Places are the LSU Indian Mounds,
a pair of earthen mounds created by Native
Americans more than 5,000 years ago. In
addition to being older than any other
mounds in the Americas, the LSU Indian
Mounds also predate the Egyptian pyramids.
