Loyola graduates remember Katrina

The 2009 class of Loyola University New Orleans recently paid their respects to other colleges – 637 to be exact.  That’s the number of colleges that took in Loyola students immediately after Hurricane Katrina forced the university to suspend classes for a semester in 2005. In honor of these schools, the class commissioned a local artist to design a sculpture that incorporates the names of each of the “Katrina colleges.” The sculpture, located on the campus grounds, is a metal bench in the spiral shape of a hurricane.
