Joie de Vivre in Academia

We aren't just located in the heart of Cajun territory—we embrace its traditions by bringing people together to solve problems. We seek to transcend textbooks in our teaching and transform the passion of our students into real-world solutions and industry innovations.

Joie de vivre means much more than being good company. It means being a lively and discerning thinker.
