Best piece of college advice:  I usually tell students to get involved in at least 3 organizations. There are plenty to choose from such as: academic, cultural, religious, social, so find ones that you might be passionate about.

Favorite restaurant in New Orleans:  One of the best places I went for Po Boys is Acme Oyster House.  Located just North of downtown in Metairie. Very fresh seafood.

Favorite weekend activity in New Orleans:  Visiting the City Park, North of the city. There are some of the oldest trees in New Orleans located there. There are plenty of paths and trails to get a good workout.

What makes Loyola different than other schools? The experience that students receive when they get here is second to none. The relationships they build with other students and faculty gives them such a support network that works together to help them succeed.  

Favorite Loyola event/tradition? Sneaux Day. This is where we bring in snow machines during the winter to the front lawn and create a fun space to simulate a snow wonderland and the whole campus community with students, faculty, staff and family are invited for fun and games!    

Favorite place on Loyola's campus: Danna Student Center.  This is great to grab some Starbucks or just relax and read a book.
