Family 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 parents to more closely partner with the University in their student's experience. We can help lead your family to LSU services and resources that will allow you to support your student.

The Family Association supports student success and promotes the University’s goal to retain students through financial support of programs and scholarships made possible through development efforts.

Through the LSU Family Council, the university connects families to the planning and organizing phases of our programs that connect LSU students and their families. If you are a current member of the LSU Family Association and have a desire to get more involved in leadership position within the association, we encourage you to learn more about the Council.

Joining the Family Association is the easiest way to share the LSU experience with your student.
