Our Lady of Holy Cross College, founded in 1916 by the Marianites of Holy Cross, has played a major role in the education of a diverse New Orleans student body. The College is part of the Catholic educational system developed by the Congregation of Holy Cross which includes such institutions as, the University of Notre Dame, Saint Edward’s University and the University of Portland. Over fifty percent of the College’s students come from the East Bank of the Mississippi River and a majority of the students remain in the area. They teach the children of the community, take care of loved ones when they are ill, operate the businesses citizens depend on, minister in Churches and social agencies, and volunteer their time to the city they call home. In short, the quality of their OLHCC education has an impact on the quality of life in metropolitan New Orleans and Louisiana.
