The architecture, food and music, and films that are made in New Orleans, all reflect the uniqueness and livability of Louisiana's most popular city. Only 15 minutes from the historic French Quarter and Central Business District, the University of New Orleans' 195-acre lakefront campus is located in a residential neighborhood along the southern shore of Lake Ponchartrain. New Orleans is home Mardi Gras, Jazz Fest, French Quarter Fest, Audubon Zoo, Aquarium and Insectarium and the New Orleans Saints (NFL) and the Pelicans(NBA).
UNO is recognized among the top "schools that offer the best value for your tuition dollar" and among the "top schools that support diversity." UNO is a comprehensive, urban university with over 30 undergraduate programs available for NSE students including jazz studies and hotel, restaurant and tourism. Eating on campus is a true New Orleans experience where traditional dishes of gumbo and red beans and rice make frequent appearances.
