First-year students captured the beauty of New Orleans last week as part of the 2017 NOLA Experience’s “New Orleans Through a Lens” track. Students were guided by  university photographer Sally Asher, as they visited iconic sites including Café du Monde, St. Louis Cathedral, Lakefront Airport, Holt Cemetery, Metairie Cemetery and the Sculpture Garden at the New Orleans Museum of Art. Participants received private tours at the Mardi Gras Museum of Costumes and Culture and Studio Inferno, which is owned by alumnus Mitchell Gaudet. Students were also treated to a private concert with the Hot 8 Brass Band at the Bea Field Alumni House and a cooking demonstration with Poppy Tooker in the Barbara Greenbaum House on the uptown campus. Here are a few of their photographs from the experience.
