The psychology program is great! It's one of the three most popular majors, so it gets a lot of attention. It's easy to find other psych students to study with, and almost all of the psych professors have had or do have a successful practice. One of the professors is on the Louisiana State Licensing Board. The first semester they will put you in Psychology Learning Community, which is optional (and very boring), but is also an easy grade. It's also a good opportunity to at least learn the faces of your fellow psych majors, network with upperclassmen, learn about opportunities in psychology (and outside), as well as at least figure out where you really want to head with your degree whether it's counseling or whatever.

It's New Orleans! It's world renowned for not only amazing food, but for it's own cultural cuisine that can't be found anywhere else. There's a good chance any restaurant you venture into will serve you the greatest meal of your life. There are the traditional cajun options, but you can also find anything else, Japanese, French, Fusion, Spanish etc. There is also a drink culture here like you would not believe. And there is so much really close to campus, within walking distance. Try South Carrolton Street, Magazine Street and the Quarter for a lovely walk and tons of options! This is a city of amazing flavors and scents.

I love New Orleans! Like every city, it has its pros and cons, but Loyola is located uptown, which has a much more relaxed kind of vibe about it. We are right on St Charles, so any itch for the lights and high-energy of downtown can be fulfilled easily. There is plenty to do around campus and the transportation is fairly competent. There are plenty of parks and fields, as well as every kind of bar you can imagine. The food here is amazing too, and there are highly-concentrated shopping areas every which way from campus.
