Campus health services and the LSU Food Pantry are open and available for students recovering from Hurricane Ida this week, LSU President William Tate said in an email on Wednesday.

“I know that, unfortunately, many of you, your families and your homes were hit very hard by Hurricane Ida,” Tate wrote. “However, the people of this state know how to recover from disasters. Now is the time to work collectively for the recovery.”

The medical clinic and mental health services at LSU’s Student Health Center will be open without an appointment this week, Wednesday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. to provide COVID-19 testing, medical care and mental health support.

Students facing food insecurity can access the LSU Food Pantry. Pantry items will be available for pickup this week Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Food requests can be submitted as of 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, September 1, by completing the form on their website.

Students affected by Hurricane Ida can also apply for financial aid through the LSU Emergency Student Support Fund.

Tate also said students should try asking counselors and teachers for help if they don’t know where to go, saying LSU “will help you get through this.”
