In 1803 the United States government bought Louisiana from France for less than 3 cense per acre. Today, the state is the heart of southern culture, a destination spot for tourists and students alike. Any intern in Louisiana will have to visit the Acadiana region during their time here. Acadiana is widely known as the “Cajun Country” for the French Settlers who lived alongside Native Americans and Creoles when they first moved to the region. And if you’re still there in March no Louisiana internship would be complete without a stop at Mardi Gras, the New Orleans festival filled with music, parades, costumes and floats. As Mark Twain once said “an American has not seen the United States until he has seen Mardi Gras in New Orleans.”
Louisiana interns interested in working in the film industry can choose between New Orleans, Baton Rouge, and Shreveport. As one of the most popular settings for reality TV in the country it is no wonder Louisiana has been given the nickname “Hollywood South.” The state is also home to Tabasco sauce, manufactured on the nearby Avery Island.
Louisiana internships give you access to the birthplace of jazz and southern food. If you like live music, fun festivals, and open, welcoming people than you will be right at home interning in this Southern state!
