People interested in donating to students affected by the storm, should go to: www.lsufoundation.org/floodrelief.



Lsu.edu/floodrelief now has information for students and for employees, including helpful links for basic questions and other services.

On Wednesday, LSU expects a great number of people coming to campus and for traffic to be heavier than usual, please plan accordingly. Many LSU employees, like others in our community, were affected by the flood. The services provided for Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday may be operating with smaller staffs. LSU appreciates understanding and patience through this process.
