The LSU campus is closing.

"In accordance with the Governor’s Executive Order, we will close campus except for an extremely limited number of essential personnel and those students who have received permission from Residential Life to remain in on-campus housing. Student residents will receive a separate, more detailed email from Residential Life with details soon. Of course, we are committed to providing a clean and safe environment for students who remain on campus and we will continue to provide essential services to those who must remain," writes Tom Galligan, LSU Interim President.

He asks employees and students to "continue to visit and follow LSU’s official social media channels in order to keep up with the latest information and resources."

"Our top priority is the health and safety of each member of our LSU community. Each day, I’m inspired by your dedication and resilience in the face of this challenge and with continued courage, calmness, compassion and cleanliness, we will get through this together. As I said earlier, achieving success is our responsibility and it is a crucial responsibility. The well-being of the world is truly on our shoulders but we carry the load together. Even though we are at home and staying six feet apart—we are still together," Galligan writes.
