Undergrads doing research
My son is attending an enrichment program at Loyola New Orleans this summer. He is doing research as part of this, along with taking a statistics course.
What's amazing to us is how much research is going on at this hidden gem, really interesting stuff. And the research is being conducted by undergraduates. These undergrads are actually getting paid to do research! What an opportunity!
I would definitely encourage anyone that is looking for a small university in a vibrant city with accessible faculty and research opportunities to look into this wonderful university!
