Family Association


About the Association

The Family Association is dedicated to helping families with their transition into the University and offering support, information, and problem-solving throughout a student’s career at LSU. The Family Association offers opportunities for families to more closely partner with the university and will help lead you to LSU services and resources to support your Tiger's success. Joining the Family Association is the easiest way to share the LSU experience with your student!

If you are a current member of the LSU Family Association and have a desire to get more involved in a leadership position within the association, we encourage you to learn more about the Family Council.
