Three former mayors of New Orleans — Moon Landrieu, Sidney Barthelemy and Marc Morial — will join current Mayor Mitch Landrieu and Mayor-elect LaToya Cantrell tonight in a discussion on the city’s past and future as part of the Loyola Institute of Politics’ annual lecture series.
Mayor Mitch Landrieu and officials with Xavier University celebrated the opening Friday morning of a new pedestrian bridge over Washington Avenue.
David Cariello, owner of Campus Connection, wanted to come up with a silly way to market a new T-shirt celebrating the 20-year anniversary of Tulane’s undefeated 1998 football season. So, in one Tweet, Cariello concocted an improbable backstory for the shirt.
Just got a call from Starter. Apparently they lost our shipment of Tulane National Champions shirts from 20 years ago and just found it sitting in their warehouse. They were very apologetic. Hopefully these will be in our store soon. #rollwave pic.twitter.com/GolCq3QEfy

While the story about the missing shipment is fictitious, the shirt’s popularity is no joke. Cariello said he underestimated how many people would be interested in a t-shirt celebrating the 20-year-old National Championship.
New Orleans mayoral candidates LaToya Cantrell and Desiree Charbonnet will meet Tuesday afternoon in a forum led by a collection of area college students at Tulane University.
A unknown man was seen outside a female college student’s bedroom window on Burthe Street on at several different occasions over the last few days, Tulane police said.
Why is Frank Luntz so darkly pessimistic about the future of American democracy?
“I’m afraid that this is the election cycle that kills our democracy,” the nationally known pollster and commentator said at Loyola University on Thursday night.
Luntz is so pessimistic because he is paid to listen to people, and what he hears is an America that has become completely unable to listen to one another.
Frank Luntz, a nationally-known pollster and political commentator, will speak about the 2016 Presidential election Thursday night at the Loyola University Institute of Politics for the annual Ed Renwick lecture.
Several student organizations at Loyola University New Orleans have made efforts to aid in tornado relief and cleanup. While the school is not equipped with tools to send students out and immediately start rebuilding, they encourage students to find ways to help, according to a report by Dannielle Garcia of The Maroon.
A panel of experts from Tulane Law School on Wednesday afternoon will discuss the executive order by President Trump that attempted to halt travel to the United States from seven Muslim countries before it was blocked by a federal judge.
Loyola University received more bad publicity this past week when it was accused of discriminating against one of their students on the basis of his profession. He was a cop.
It occurred this past Wednesday when Sergeant Josh Collins of the Jefferson Parish Sheriff’s Office attended a class in “Law and Morality” dressed in SWAT fatigues. He’d been attending classes there in criminal justice for eight years and normally wore plainclothes but didn’t that day because he was too busy to change. He was also openly wearing his sidearm.
Speaking Monday at the kick-off of Tulane University’s new ByWater Institute fellowship program, Lt. Governor Billy Nungessser said that President-Elect Donald Trump will create jobs and economic opportunities in Louisiana, especially in the oil and gas industry. “President Trump is going to be good for business in Louisiana,” said Nungesser.
The entire life of Donald J. Trump has been a study in shifting character — from the New York playboy and brash investor who rose to fame in the 1980s, to the wizened, demanding businessman who dominated The Apprentice, to the rabble-rousing ideologue who captured the Republican nomination.
Now that Trump has been elected President, said New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd to a packed audience at Tulane on Wednesday night, no one really has any idea what kind of character he will assume next.
