BATON ROUGE, La. — The coronavirus pandemic apparently hasn’t slowed down student interest in Louisiana State University.

LSU says its enrollment has reached an all-time high for the fall semester, with more than 34,000 students taking courses through the Baton Rouge campus. 

Its freshman class also has broken records for the third-straight year. The nearly 6,700 freshmen enrolled in the university exceeds last year’s record of more than 6,100 students.
