First Time Freshmen

New Student Orientation

 2014 Orientation Leaders

If you've been admitted to LSU Shreveport as a First-Time Freshman, congratulations, your next step is to register for an orientation session! New Student Orientation is a mandatory, day-long program designed specifically for first-time freshmen. Orientation is a perfect mix of fun and "business" where you'll have an opportunity to join the campus community and register for first semester classes at the same time! New transfer students are welcome to attend as well. 

Orientation is conducted in small groups led by some of our very own students. LSU Shreveport Orientation Leaders will assist new students in exploring the variety of academic and co-curricular opportunities on campus. Incoming students participating in orientation will meet current LSU Shreveport students; learn about academic majors, campus organizations, and social/leadership opportunities; receive individualized assistance in class scheduling; and complete registration for classes.
