LSU School of Public Health and New Orleans

No other city in America keeps its history as vital and accessible as New Orleans. House after house, street after street, indeed entire neighborhoods, exude a rich sense of place, and serve as touchstones for fascinating history and complex culture. Look for it. In New Orleans, history can strut as loudly as a Carnival walking krewe, or creep as softly as a green lizard on a courtyard wall. Thrilling. Colorful. Tragic. Inspiring. Discover a little about the sweep of the city’s history.

Operating in New Orleans since 2003, LSU School of Public Health has always had a close connection to the community. It is this connection that makes LSU SPH so unique as an option for starting your career in Public Health.  After all, New Orleans provides students at our school a unique learning laboratory no matter which discipline you choose to specialize in.

But more than that, New Orleans is a city that has inspired love from all who have visited.

For over 300 years, the city of New Orleans has been one of the nation’s cultural capitals.  Well known for Mardi Gras, there certainly wouldn’t be a shortage of things to explore in between studies the year through.  Whether you wander into a neighborhood block party, enjoy one of the many museums, stroll the shops of Magazine Street or enjoy weekend filled with music and food at one our many weekend festivals, you’ll never be bored living here.

After all, New Orleans has had a long time to cultivate its role as one of the world’s most unique Cities.
