Over the course of your orientation, you’ll have a lot of things to do: tour the campus, register for classes, meet your future classmates, and much more. All of this may seem daunting, but you can take some steps to make it as easy as possible. (And remember, always be willing to ask questions if you don’t know something.) To start, let’s go over what you need to bring to orientation.
What to Bring
Since you’ll be doing so many different things during orientation, it’s good to have a few items with you wherever you go, just in case. Use the list below.
- Bag or backpack (you’ll have a lot of stuff to carry)
- Phone charger
- Campus map
Where to Stay
If you’re new to Baton Rouge, there are plenty of places to stay in the city.
Where to Go
It goes without saying — if you can’t get to orientation, it isn’t going to do you much good. You don’t want to miss the introduction, so be sure to allow for extra travel time to avoid being late!
Depending on which college you’re attending in Baton Rouge, you’ll need to find the right building where orientation will begin. After that, you’ll likely be given instructions on where to go and what to do. Review your orientation guide to find out what building you need to start in.
For future LSU students, orientation should start in the LSU Student Union ballroom at the center of campus, right next to the Parade Ground and Barnes & Noble.
