Monroe Hall is delighted to house the Multicultural Floor for the second consecutive year. This residential community is located on the 5th floor of Monroe Hall, which is a coed residence, and is open to approximately 40 first-year students of all backgrounds. There is a spacious and comfortable social lounge that serves as a hub of resident interaction for organized activities and casual usage such as studying, socializing, or just watching movies on the new large flat screen TV.


As a community, MO 5 promotes the value of understanding social differences on and off campus as necessary to building an inclusive atmosphere fostering academic excellence and personal growth. Future residents can anticipate a socially just living and learning community based on mutual respect regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sex, age, class, sexual orientation, religious preference, ability/disability and/or international status.


A definitive part of MO 5 is its programming. Residents can participate in numerous established programs and events organized by the Office of Multicultural Affairs, Gender and Sexual Diversity including the Ambassador mentorship program, MLK Week for Peace, and the International Music & Food Festival. Some featured floor events include a discussion series called Food for Thought where residents prepare a meal highlighting a particular culture and discuss controversial, or topics of interest led by residents, professors, staff, or student organizations. Occasional trips will explore rich cultural sites that New Orleans has to offer, Backstreet Cultural Museum and Congo Square.
