Best Colleges in New Orleans

New Orleans has seen its share of troubles over the years since Mother Nature hasn't always gone easy on the coastal Southern town. But even today, "the Big Easy" boasts a strong collegiate culture, rich music scene and plenty of southern comfort. Access to the oldest school of public health in the country provides a wonderful opportunity for those hoping to break into the medical field. or find your place at one of New Orleans' 13 other universities and colleges.

When you're not stuck in class, take your camera to the historic French Quarter, the glamour of New Orleans usually found in movies. or spend your time touring the Aquarium of the Americas, one of the most impressive exhibits in the Southern region. Add in the thrills of Six Flags and Boomtown Casino, or the one-of-a-kind nature experience at the Audubon Butterfly Garden and Insectarium, and you're guaranteed a good time. and last but not least, it goes without saying that students attending school in or around New Orleans truly feel alive when Mardi Gras comes to town. The entire city becomes an uproarious fun fest, with memories to keep (or forget) for a lifetime.
