Activities & Organizations

College education extends beyond the classroom. That’s why we offer ways to get involved outside of the classroom.  Studies have shown that students who become involved in activities and organizations on campus stay in school longer, have a higher graduation rate, enjoy a better relationship with faculty and staff, and report a higher level of satisfaction with their college experience. It’s a great way to try new things, meet new people, and have fun!!

ORGANIZATIONS

LSUA has a variety of organizations that meet our students' interests and needs.
