Priests established a Jesuit college in the first part of the nineteenth century in New Orleans. As time progressed and the city grew, so too did the Church and the need for education. in 1904, Loyola College opened its doors and its continued success led to a bill to grant it university status in 1912. Just seven years later, Loyola University New Orleans began offering evening classes for adult students and today this tradition continues. With a current student body of more than 5000, Loyola is a private, co-educational not-for-profit institution that promotes its Jesuit and Catholic heritage.
