LSU Historical Walking Tour


The history of LSU has an incredibly complex past that this walking tour cannot explain in its entirety. But there are some incredibly interesting and important locations and stories that many are woefully ignorant about. I chose to discover the most important stories that can contribute to a better understanding of the university’s past, especially LSU’s history with underrepresented communities.

With this walking tour, I hope you will not only have a better understanding of LSU's history, but also appreciate the stories of these people. While these stories may seem distant and irrelevant today, these stories and people will be forever tied to our university, and their stories deserve to be better recognized. History must be reconciled with the present because it is inexplicably linked to each other and to us today.
