In the most recent Princeton Review college rankings, Tulane was named the #1 university for College Cities that Get High Marks. Further, Loyola New Orleans was named #1 for Town-Gown Relations, reinforcing New Orleans excellence as a college host.
Writes Princeton Review: “New Orleans is one of the nation’s oldest and most culturally diverse cities but also one of the most innovative and vibrant. Heralded as a top city for entrepreneurs and creative professionals, New Orleans has a buzzing tech and art scene. The famous French Quarter and Downtown area, where jazz was born and lives on, is a breezy streetcar ride away. On campus, there are palm trees and an average of 216 days of sunshine, making New Orleans a paradise city. With 21 James Beard Award-winning chefs and more than 1400 restaurants, dining out in New Orleans is truly an experience like no other. And with 65 festivals a year, there is always something new and different to experience.”
