LSU Student-Athlete

A Day In the Life

The typical LSU student-athlete’s day is very busy. We work to ensure that LSU student-athletes have the tools to balance the roles of both student and athlete. 

6:00 AM


The day starts with a cardio workout at the Peterson-Roberts Weight Room at the Football Opertations Facility on Skip Bertman Drive. This world class facility insures that student-athletes have the latest technology and equipment to stay in peak condition.

7:30 AM


Student-athletes fuel up for the day at the Nutrition Center at LSU Football Operations. Here student-athletes work with the LSU Sport Nutrition team to eat right. They also learn about nutrition to ensure they stay healthy long after they leave LSU.

9:00 AM


Student-athletes balance the roles of both student and athletes, and class attendance is a priority. This emphasis on education has lead to over 4,000 LSU student-athletes receiving undergraduate degrees from LSU. In fact, the graduation success rate of LSU student-athletes is 90%.
