4 College Freshman

Nightlife: Two bars a located very close to Loyola. About a 5 minute walk. Freshman tend to go out a lot, but it gets old fast. Greek life does have parties, but they're usually pretty lame unless it is a party your organization is holding just for your organization itself.

5 College Junior

Nightlife: There are tons of spots to choose from to go partying at night. There are tons of bars and clubs on every corner, and there is something for everyone -- bars for the younger crowd, dance clubs, and so on. As for those who are underage, there is a movie theater down the street from school and tons of good restaurants. However the main nightlife scene consists of bars and clubs. There are lots of good venues to find free live music as well.

4 College Sophomore

Nightlife: There is lots of night life in New Orleans and always something to go to.

5 College Freshman

Nightlife: Loyola is in New Orleans. There isn't a whole lot to do if you are underage except going to cafes.

3 College Sophomore

Nightlife: The view on the nightlife will vary with different types of people. Me, I am a bookworm/night-owl; but I tend to only hang around my friends, dorms and the library. That may be different for a party-er type, since I am unaware of the all the hotspots in New Orleans and whatnot. I can it seems to be always lively throughout the night, with the campus full of glee until around 4am.

A good portion of students do go out to area bars and clubs. Being in New Orleans and close to downtown, it is fairly easy to walk, or you can take the streetcar or pay for a taxi to get to one of these many places. There are some house parties on Broadway, but typically students go out to the bars and clubs.

Freshmen tend to try out The Boot as their first experience out but then venture out to other places. Some places will let underage students in as long as they wear a bracelet saying they are under 21, but some students go out and enjoy the other parts of New Orleans. If any stduent is out and does not feel safe coming home, he or she can call SafeRide to get an escorted ride home.
