The local airport for the conference is the Baton Rouge Metropolitan Airport (BTR). BTR is a regional airport with direct flights from a handful of major hub airports (Dallas-Ft. Worth, Houston, Atlanta, Charlotte). Flights from all other cities connect through these hubs.
Travelers can alternatively fly into the New Orleans International Airport (MSY). MSY is located approximately 70 miles from the LSU campus (~1 hour 15 mins. travel time). If participants choose to fly into MSY, it is strongly suggested that they rent a car, as Uber/Lyft rides cost ~$100 from MSY to the LSU campus.
Halloween in Louisiana!
In southern Louisiana, Halloween is considered second only to Mardi Gras for its displays of fun and festivity. We encourage conference participants to check out the events taking place during Halloween weekend in both Baton Rouge and New Orleans. We offer everything from parades to pumpkin patches to haunted houses!
