Students at LSU are recovering from an outbreak of swine flu.

Approximately 20 students who are on campus for sorority recruitment have come down with mild to moderate flu-like symptoms. Several of those students tested positive for the type A influenza virus.

But for now, officials at the school say the outbreak is not severe enough to change the schedule for activities. They're urging all students to wash their hands and stay home if they're sick.
