Good Morning:

I hope you are enjoying the beautiful spring weather. With all the azaleas in bloom, I can’t remember our campuses ever looking better.

The producers of "College," a comedy currently being shot in the city, were filming on the uptown campus this week. This is one of several film projects currently underway in New Orleans.

We are always happy to host film productions whenever possible. Such endeavors boost the city’s economy and our growing local film industry.

The best film I’ve seen lately was also shot locally. This two-minute film features Tulane student-athletes framing a “Habitat for Humanity” home that will be donated to storm victims.

It’s an Oscar winner, if you ask me. Check it out yourself:

Have a great weekend,
