Loyola University New Orleans was founded by the Society of Jesus in 1904 as Loyola College on a section of the Foucher Plantation. The school has grown on this original campus to have thousands of students and numerous faculty. It sustained some damage in Hurricane Katrina but was able to resume classes for the following semester and is now fully operational and recovered from the storms. Students can attend classes at the main New Orleans campus or through their newer online classrooms.
Loyola has a great academic record, being name one of the top colleges by The Princeton Review for its undergraduate programs. Students will have access to faculty who by and large hold doctoral degrees in their fields and have been recognized with prestigious awards like the Pulitzer and funding from organizations like the National Science Foundation.
