Baton Rouge

The main campus of Our Lady of the Lake College is located in the city of Baton Rouge, the state’s capital and one of the most vibrant and historic cities in the South.  Baton Rouge has become Louisiana’s largest city and is known to be rich in culture, entertainment, and heritage. 

With the College being a short 15 minute drive from downtown Baton Rouge, students can enjoy the many attractions the city has to offer and numerous opportunities for relaxation and fun.  Mardi Gras parades, international fairs, street art markets, and hot air balloon festivals are just a few of the events that roll through the city annually. Baton Rouge has an expanding visual and performance arts scene including many galleries, theaters, and museums centered in the downtown area. The Shaw Center houses the Manship Theatre, the Louisiana State University (LSU) Museum of Art, the Brunner Gallery, and the LSU School of Art Gallery; the Baton Rouge Gallery and the Louisiana Art and Science Museum are also located in the downtown district.  In addition, the Baton Rouge Little Theater and Baton Rouge River Center host Broadway shows, musical artists, and plays, and the Baton Rouge Symphony Orchestra performs exceptional orchestral concerts.

The city has some of the area’s finest restaurants ranging from authentic Louisiana Cajun cuisines to a wide variety of multi-ethnic offerings.  And when darkness falls, Baton Rouge nightlife comes alive, filled with musical heritage that includes jazz, blues, rock, and Cajun music.

Sporting events are a popular and essential part of Baton Rouge. The LSU Tigers football team is one of the city’s most popular entertainment highlights during football season and Baton Rouge was recently ranked number in the top five cities for tailgating.
