Title: Loyola University New Orleans Community and Resilience Collection
The FYE Common Experience Program is a year-long initiative designed to provide incoming first-year students with a shared intellectual experience that cultivates intellectual inquiry and encourages critical thinking while strengthening the sense of community across the entire campus and between Loyola and the surrounding community by engaging faculty, staff, students, and community members in a multifaceted intellectual experience. The theme for the 2015-2016 FYE Common Experience Program was inspired by the film, Bury the Hatchet, a documentary that tells the story of the Mardi Gras Indians. Bury the Hatchet documents the Mardi Gras Indians in New Orleans before, during, and after Hurricane Katrina, but also explores broader issues such as the role community plays in resilience. Members of the Loyola community were invited to donate digital files including photographs, posters, written stories, and other items that speak to these issues. Of particular interest were documents related to the Loyola community's experience during Hurricane Katrina, Loyola's role in rebuilding New Orleans, and the broader roles communities play in defining and transforming society.
