Welcome from the Assistant Dean for Student Support and Success

Vanessa Rodriguez

Dear SoPA Students,

Summer, summer, summertime! It's finally here, along with snoballs and termite swarms in New Orleans. Many students are taking advantage of this time by enrolling in a class or two and making even more progress towards their degree goals. Some are taking a well-deserved breather after a historic academic year. Either way, make sure you keep in touch with your team at SoPA to help keep you on track. Please note that summer hours for the Elmwood Campus this summer will be 8:30A.M.–5:00P.M. Uptown Campus hours will remain the same. Congrats on an unforgettable spring.

Sincerely,
Vanessa Rodriguez
