Update: The University continues to monitor the COVID-19 novel coronavirus situation closely, and we continue to place the health and wellness of our campus community first. We have made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Architecture Camp, scheduled to take place on LSU’s Main Campus between June 15-19, 2020. We look forward to welcoming aspiring architects to camp in June 2021. See full updates regarding closures due to COVID-19.
