New Orleans, Louisiana United States
At Loyola University New Orleans (LoyNO), you define who you want to be: a free-thinker, an entrepreneur, a risk-taker, a scientist, a creative, and above all yourself — the thing no one else can be. This education lets you find that. It allows you to do more than transform yourself; it allows you to transform into yourself.
