LSUE Colors 

The LSUE colors truly illustrate the essence of the LSU brand. Purple represents the passion, spirit and culture of the LSU community and its roots in Louisiana, while gold stands for the excellence, produced by that passion and demonstrated at every level of academics and athletics. These colors are banners for LSU dating as far back as 1893, yet they still resonate today.
