University Scholars Spring 2014 Trip

New Orleans, LA

In February of 2014, 22 University Scholars students took a trip to New Orleans, LA. Students had the privilege of learning about the culture and history of New Orleans through a tour of the French Quarter and a tour of the Hurricane Katrina recovery effort. In addition, students toured the National World War II Museum and attended the Broadway musical production "Beauty and the Beast" at the Saenger Center, in its first season open since Hurricane Katrina. Students also had the privilege of attending mass at St. Patrick's church, enjoying lots of seafood, and feasting on beignets from Cafe Du Monde in the French Quarter.
