Freshman Service Project

Since 2005, the Ogden Honors College has sought to encourage our freshman year theme of service by hosting a large-scale service project for new and continuing Honors students during the fall semester. The project seeks to create a sense of community among honors students while simultaneously connecting them to the community beyond LSU.
