It was founded under the name Louisiana State Seminary of Learning and Military Academy and was located near Pineville, Louisiana. The first session began January 2, 1860. LSU is a land-grant, sea-grant and space-grant institution, and is one of only 30 such universities in the nation. LSU is accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. The University includes 9 senior colleges and 4 schools, in addition to specialized centers, divisions, institutes, and offices. Enrollment is more than 28,000 students, including more than 1,600 international students and nearly 5,000 graduate students. LSU has more than 1,100 full-time faculty members and a staff of more than 3,500. LSU Libraries contain more than 3.2 million volumes. The School of the Coast and Environment (formerly CCEER) was designated as the first Coastal Marine Institute by the Minerals Management Service of the U.S. Department of the Interior.
LSU is located in Baton Rouge, the capital of Louisiana, a rapidly growing metropolitan area. South Louisiana is home to great historical traditions from plantation homes along the ...Mississippi River to food and music from New Orleans to Cajun country. As an institution, LSU is the flagship university in Louisiana and leads the nation in knowledge and research of coastal environments.
