The Agriculture Residential College (ARC), located in the recently renovated Blake Hall, is a living-learning community for first-year students of all majors in the College of Agriculture. ARC allows students to live and take classes with the same group of peers, thus creating a smaller network within the larger LSU campus. ARC will offer opportunities to travel and host several special interest lectures that focus on the diverse needs of today’s ever changing world. Living in ARC provides students with the opportunity to network with others with the same interests, form relationships with faculty members, and become involved in unique co-curricular experiences to enhance your degree program and your LSU experience. All Ag! All the Time!
Forget four walls, at the College of Agriculture the world is our classroom. Our students get practical, hands-on experiences in environments that help facilitate learning. Students focusing on wildlife will go out into wetlands or forests and observe or interact with native species. Those with an interest in plants or animals will get experience with gardens, crops and livestock on research farms. An on-campus food incubator lets students studying food sciences gain industry skills and knowledge. Our classroom is a marsh or a garden, a boutique window or a food sensory lab. It’s a living classroom with flora, fauna, food and fashion. What does your classroom look like? See images of ours.
