Center for the Study of New Orleans

Welcome to the Center for the Study of New Orleans!

Building on the scholarly resources of Loyola University, the Center for the Study of New Orleans promotes research into the city’s history, culture and society.

By integrating social justice and analytic thinking into courses, internships, research and public programming, the Center fosters a critical understanding of New Orleans and an opportunity to aid its renewal.

New Orleans Bucket list

We have created a booklet called Going Local: Things You Gotta Do in NOLA (before you leave, Dawlin') with lists of places to visit, restaurants to try, festival to attend and sights to see before you graduate. Take a look here.
