“This trip allowed me to see the entire city of New Orleans in a different light. It gave me a new perspective on what social class is, and allowed me to see how race and gender influenced city dynamic, especially when it came to Mardi Gras and the French Quarter. It also gave me a deeper look into Hurricane Katrina and why the city is still in such disrepair.” Julie Reczek, Junior
