3 College Sophomore

Campus Dining: Campus dining is a hit or a miss, depending on the day. The kitchen prepares fantastic local cuisine some night, and very bland food the next.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Sports are a significant part of campus life. Football games are a very important event in the year, and everyone is involved in some way. The school spirit is extremely high for these games. Most students partake in some intramural sports.

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: There is not much diversity at Tulane. Much of the population is white, although there is a strong black and asian population.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life is prevalent but not essential to a student's happiness at Tulane. It is a southern school, so the chapters have many values rooted in old, southern traditions. However, there is a variety of chapters, enough so that each student can find his or her fit.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: The general population of girls and boys at Tulane is quite preppy. There are a lot of students from privileged backgrounds, some coming from the NorthEast or the South, and many from California. That said, a great many defy the "country club" stereotype.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The campus is very safe. Late night transportation is always available to students, and the grounds are very well light through the night. There are security officers and Emergency Medical Technicians on duty every night. Some crimes occur near campus, though.

4 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Beautiful area, removed enough from the city for a calm, peaceful atmosphere with a local population. There is plenty to do in the neighborhood (shopping, dinning, etc) and it is lovely to walk through. Transportation into the city and other parts of the area is very accessible.

5 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: New Orleans serves amazing and unique food.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: just take care of yourself and everything should be fine, tulane students arent at all assuming or malicious people, we just like to havea good time. police will assist you if you need help but youre better off getting the help of a friend. sexual assault is hardly something that goes on at tulane. were good people

2 College Sophomore

Athletics: one of the most noticeable lacking aspects of tulane however the football team is on the rise and I would predict that well be top in the Big East, which we just joined, in the next 2-3 years. roll wave, baby.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: greek life is pretty big at tulane and you definitely notice their presence at certain times during the year, like the first few weeks, however if you are not greek and still a sociable person you get to enjoy many of the parties that occur on campus. it can be mainly about who you know

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: freshman housing is fun but the buildings are quite wornout and not too well maintained.

5 College Sophomore

Nightlife: once again, "its the best". bars only a few blocks from campus, everyone loves to go out, always something going on from happy hour to a frat party to a mixer downtown.

College Sophomore

Majors: havnt had an internship through the school yet

College Sophomore

Majors: havent been enrolled in a program just yet

College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: the guys and girls are similar in that each faction enjoys to party and have a good time and understands the significance of "work hard, party harder", which seems to be tulanes new motto.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: a ton of different options that you can hardly even try all of the first year. it takes a lot of time and experimentation to even get to a fraction of the great eateries that uptown, as well as downtown, new orleans has to offer. top notch.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: a variety of places and locations to choose from both close and far from campus. rent can be very reasonable and even at times better than paying for housing on campus.

2 College Sophomore

Academics: football team is getting better coming off our first winning season in a while. we made a bowl game but unfortauntely lost on a missed field goal. Still we should be steadily improving with the addition of a stadium on campus this coming fall. Roll wave baby.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: it can definitely be rewarding depending on your major. many perks for business school students like myself and architecture students. lowkey tulane has one of the best architecture programs in the nation

3 College Sophomore

Diversity: its a relatively homogenous place with alot of people from the northeast along with a lot of jewish american students. however it is not much of a problem for many who find diverse groups of people and friends

4 College Sophomore

Facilities: great scenery and green spaces to study and hangout with friends. many people will study in communal areas on nice days- which is basically always

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: tulane has a large endowment and therefore a lot of scholarship money to offer, however it will not just appear in your lap. you need to be proactive to receive more if you need it

Tulane is an acquired taste. Some people take to it instantly, but for others it can take more than a semester to fit in and enjoy the university system. All of the students questioned said that they love Tulane and love being here. Living in such a culturally rich environment creates a unique learning opportunity that many kids who go to different schools will never get a chance to experience.

It takes a very intelligent and well-balanced person to attend Tulane. The nightlife and 24/7 party scene can tempt students
to blow off classes and just have a good time. Finding the right balance of partying and school work makes for the best experience. Remember, this isn’t high school glorified; college is actually going to be a lot of work. Even the so-called “blow-off classes” that you take for humanities credit will make you read one long-winded book after the other and write 10–15 page research papers by the end of the semester. You’ll see a lot of people come in for the fall semester that won’t come back after Christmas. Some people just can’t take the pressure; others miss home too much. If you can get into Tulane, you can handle the workload; it’s just that some adapt better than others. If you do have trouble, most professors are available to talk to, and the ERC’s tutoring and writing workshops are free and easy to access.

You’ll never sit at home on a weekend for lack of something to do, and holidays—especially Halloween and (obviously) Mardi Gras—are some of the best parts about living in New Orleans. The live jazz music and the food is also fantastic. If Bruff’s food tasted like anything out in the city, the average student weight would be close to 300 pounds. Not only will you get a well-balanced education at Tulane, but you will also meet some of your best friends, become involved in things you never imagined you would do at home, be a leader of a group when you never had that chance in high school, and be introduced to a new, unique environment and culture that can not be found in any other place in the country. There is no other school like Tulane, and there is no other city like New Orleans.

Only in New Orleans… Only at Tulane.
