Large freshman class has led to housing shortage on Baton Rouge campus

From The Baton Rouge Advocate: Louisiana State University has started fall classes and has had to turn away more students seeking on-campus housing than ever. The housing demand has reached the point that LSU is seeking permission to renovate and reopen to students the outdated Kirby-Smith Hall, which has been used for storage and office space in recent years. The housing standby list that peaked at about 1,000 students now has 688 students. The school has had an unexpected jump in freshman enrollment this fall.
