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.

 the view from the art building. Service & social justice are big on campus, which has a very Jesuit feel. If you like Cheverus, you'll like Loyola! 

street cars are a popular way to get around the city

Tulane University, right next door. Much bigger in student population and campus size.

 a major road cuts through campus, separating academic buildings from housing/residential life
 palm trees are a beautiful feature of New Orleans
 the business building was built as a curved structure to acommodate old growth trees.

Loyola and Tulane share some facilities like dining and coffee houses, and students can cross-register for classes. The two universities are much more friendly & cooperative than in years past, when they were competitive with one another.
