When choosing your room at The Oliver,decide how many flatmates you want, and whether you’d like your apartment pre-furnished. In the morning, roll out of your full-sized bed in time for a workout in the 24-hour fitness center, then grab your books from the study desk and hop on the LSU Tiger Trails bus for the five-minute ride to class. On weekends, grab breakfast to go from nearby café The Kolache Kitchen, before exploring the rest of the city from the bus stop up the street.
After a busy day, rifle through the kitchen fridge for something to eat, then head out to the patio for a gossip with your flatmates. Stack your plate in the dishwasher, then grab your towel and wander down to the pool area for a soak in the hot tub. If you’re looking for something a little more strenuous, work up a sweat on the basketball and tennis courts instead. With an apartment washer dryer, a spacious bathroom and all water included, freshening up after a workout session couldn’t be easier.
Later, use the free internet to research your assignments, or get online in the Academic Success Center. After taking advantage of the free printing, get your friends together for an alfresco dinner around the garden grills. Spend the rest of the evening watching cable shows in your apartment, playing arcade games in the recreation center, or brushing up on your foosball skills. When you want a cultural night out, the Shaw Center for the Arts is your go-to for plays, concerts and art exhibitions.
