Personally think that the Career Center Online is very difficult to process. Its a lot of random jobs and it wants a full resume for 18 year olds? I think a job near campus, but not on campus might be the best option.

I've had the best professors and the worst. A class of 900 and a class of 20. I had a semester where I got into every class I wanted, at every time i wanted, and a semester where I had to change my entire schedule because almost all classes were full.

I would definitely chose LSU if I could do it all over. Its an amazing experience, although some professors, specifically in the science department are difficult to understand.
