The Scoop | Nov 2022

The Holiday season is upon us in New Orleans! One of the most wonderful times of the year in New Orleans with unique traditions, heart-warming events for everyone, and beautiful decorations around every cobblestoned corner. Here are some of our favorite Holiday activities if you find yourself staying in the city during the Holiday breaks or just looking for something fun to do after classes or on the weekends.

There is always space for expressing GRATEFULNESS!

We asked some of our social media student leaders what made them feel most grateful during this Holiday season.  

Here are their heartwarming answers. What are YOU grateful for today? 

Scares were in the air as students celebrated Halloween in the first ever “Monster Mash” event hosted by the School of Communication and Design. The event was filled with festivities such as pumpkin carving, pie eating contests and apple bobbing among others. Students and faculty members enjoyed delicious food, danced to great tunes and enjoyed a special afternoon surely like no other. 

The halls of Loyola’s second floor were reborn as the school dedicated a band room to New Orleans iconic trumpet player Connie Jones and wife Elaine Jones. The newly decorated floor gives students the chance to walk along history birthed right in the heart of our city through information, images and facts about the Jones family.
