UNO Scholarship to Help Young Horns
by Shay Sokol
Tip jars aren't the only help up-and-coming NOLA brass musicians are getting these days. Jazz enthusiasts Nathan and Priscilla Gordon donated $25,000 to UNO to establish the Gordon Scholarship in Brass, which will support new undergraduate students majoring in jazz.

UNO: No More Fun in the Sun at Pontchartrain Beach
In the wake of two recent drowning incidents, the University of New Orleans is shutting off public access to the sandy beach that is the former site of Pontchartrain Beach Amusement Park. On weekends, large crowds gather at the spot to barbecue, take in the sun and, despite no swimming signs, to wade in the water. But the deaths of Bilder Lopez and Shone Badon, both 17, in separate swimming accidents over the last two months have pushed UNO to restrict further access. In a statement, the university said they plan to close the beach "until further notice" and ramp up security. "No Trespassing signs will be posted soon," the statement said.
