The University of New Orleans is a pretty good bargain for a great education, on campuses resources such as computer labs, tutoring centers, and structured reviews gives students here an opportunity to obtain that degree of higher learning. The University is here with you every step of the way throughout your career to help you achieve every goal possible, if it had to be rate on a 1-10 scale i'd give this place an 8.

The University of New Orleans has an outstanding business programs. They give new and current students easy access to review all of what's going on around campus with their easy to use website. Their financial aid office personnel is more than helpful when students are in need of funds to aid them when wanting to join school.
