Jazz Fest Arena

Art thrives and opportunity abounds

New Orleans is like no other city in the world. ​

It’s where jazz was born and lives on. Where dining out is a religious experience. Where dressing in costume requires no reason at all. And with its buzzing tech and art scenes, New Orleans is a place to make your mark.

Let our students be your guide

From food to sports to music to tech, New Orleans has a lot to offer. Hear from the students themselves about their favorite ways to experience the city. We encourage you to learn more about the compelling, symbiotic relationship between the community and our students by diving deeper into our student City Guides.

Helping our community

  • Treat 1,000 dental patients: Transform Mardi Gras World (a giant storage facility for parade floats) into a pop-up dental clinic.
  • Extend the food supply: Plant fruit trees at the Acorn Farm in an urban food desert.
  • Reduce recidivism: Help nonprofit The First 72+ build a database that assesses the needs of former inmates moving back into society.

Come see for yourself

A Loyola education will change the way you live—and our city and campus play a big role in that. The best way to understand is to tour our facilities, meet current students, attend a class, and sit down with counselors, professors, or coaches.
