Beignet Fest in City Park is what I look forward to every year because its a celebration of one of my favorite New Orleans treats, the beignet. Dozens of vendors show up to the festival where you can lounge in the park, listen to music, all while choosing from a variety of different beignets: traditional, Oreo, seafood, and so many more. Every year I always find a different recipe that I love, and that is what brings me back every year.
As someone who adores food, I'm always looking out for new places to try around the city. Ice cream is hands down my favorite dessert so you can always find me in Creole Creamery eating either one of my favorite flavors, red velvet or Mexican hot chocolate. Another place I absolutely love is downtown off Canal St. called the Red Gravy, a tiny whole in the wall breakfast and brunch place. It is worth the streetcar ride downtown every time because the French toast and lost bread are to die for.
The versatility to maneuver between the five schools on campus makes choosing to study in two or more completely different majors possible. You do not have to worry about applying to a separate colleges if you suddenly decide to change your major because you are already accepted into every college so its encouraged to try new things you may not have originally considered studying.
One of my favorite classes I am currently taking this semester is called Elections in America with Professor Brian Brox. We take an in depth look on how campaigns are organized and executed in America with specific focus on campaign organizations, the media, and political parties. As a Political Science major, I thoroughly enjoy the material, but Professor Brox is also super knowledgeable on the subject, offers great advice, and is an all around fun and enjoyable professor.
