"Coming from New York or L.A., those places have happened, but New Orleans is happening, and you really feel an amazing energy here."

New Orleans: More Than a Tourist Destination

With its colorful history and rich culture, New Orleans has rightfully earned a reputation as one of the world’s most beloved cities. From Uptown to the Garden District and the French Quarter, you’ll find historic homes, antique shops, theaters, art galleries and world-famous restaurants and music clubs. At the right time of year, you can also experience the excitement of events such as Mardi Gras, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and the Allstate Sugar Bowl.

But there’s more to New Orleans than festivals and tourism. NOLA is also a global business hub. Home to one of the busiest ports in the nation, New Orleans is a major center of import-export trade and a thriving hub for the energy and banking industries. It boasts an emerging entrepreneurial and high-tech community and is also a major destination for international conventions and trade shows.

What does this mean for Freeman students? Unlimited opportunity.
