I really enjoyed my TIDES class! It was a great way to start college, I was thrown into small groups so I could get to know my peers and was taught all the skills to success within the business school. We were also fed which was AWESOME.
Coffee shops (Rue de la Course is my favorite), ice cream shops as well (Creole Creamery for days), art markets, any spot along the Mississippi river, or Audubon Park!
It was the perfect mix of everything I wanted in a school: not too small, not to big. Highly academic but also one of the most fun college experiences out there. And, well obviously, NEW ORLEANS!
Po-Boy Fest for sure!!! Any festival that celebrates food is the festival for me.
