UMass Lowell campus visit April 2018

I took a tour of the 3 campuses that make up UMass Lowell: north, south and east. North & south are just across the river from one another, and the east campus is a quick shuttle drive away. Many students live on east campus and have classes on north or south.

Loyola New Orleans & Tulane University

I visited Loyola New Orleans & Tulane University in January 2018.

Loyola New Orleans, a Jesuit university


 on St Charles Avenue in the Garden District, a pretty area of New Orleans with palm trees and street cars. They thought 55 degrees in January was chilly while I thought it was a welcome relief from a long Maine winter! Half of the 2500 student are from out of state. 85% live on campus.
