Typical LYS Day
LYS is a 5 day, fun-filled experience for our students. This high-energy schedule is led by experienced counselors and junior counselors who will work one-on-one with 20-25 students in a “home group.” Days start early and go into the evenings, so this fun-filled packed schedule is full of events and action. You will meet many new friends and stay in an LSU dormitory with students from all over the state. Visit our Blog for more information on a day during the seminar.
