3 College Freshman

Campus Food: The meal plan is overpriced. However, if you choose the option with more WaveBucks, you can just eat at the LBC and Le Gourmet which are both good options!

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some of the dorms have cockroach problems, but I live in the newest residence, so I don't have that problem. There is a great social atmosphere. The dining hall isn't the best, but it's not bad, and there are great options in the food court (LBC). The prices of room & board and a meal plan is expensive.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Im not particularly interested in the fraternities that we have on our campus. However, the Greeks here aren't so bad.

1 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: The transportation to school is horrible and the parking will be filled by the time you get here. This makes it hard to park. I rather just stay on campus.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: We have many fast food restaurants nearby and we also have City Diner that is open at night. this makes getting food during the night easy.

5 College Junior

Party Scene: New Orleans is a party city and when you are at Tulane you can go from Downtown to the Boot/Palms easily.

3 College Junior

Administration: The campus id not that strict. The only time you will get in trouble is if you have violated a rule.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I am currently trying to get financial aid for the summer. It is not bad, you just have to keep checking up on it.

4 College Junior

Campus Food: The food in every dining place on campus is good.

5 College Junior

Campus Housing: I love living on Campus because everything is close. Your friends, the food, and classes are in walking distance. This saves you money because you are not using gas.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I will say that people are not happy when you dine off campus. It is a hassle and the waitress at Jazmine Cafe will be very mad. You should always tip your waitresses.

4 College Freshman

Administration: The campus isn't very strict. If you have common sense, you won't get in trouble.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: Tulane knows how to party. We invented it.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I have to apply for a lot of scholarships to keep paying for school. I think tuition and food is way overpriced. This is an amazing school, no doubt, but it could be just as good for less. There are so many activities on campus that aren't that necessary, clubs have a lot of money to spend. I would rather pay directly for all the additional benefits.

Campus Food: Its the best of any college I've been to. Unfortunately, everything is overpriced.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I live in Josephine Louise House. I love it because it is so classic! The sisterhood is amazing and living in an all girls dorm definitely has its perks.

Campus Food: Average food. Bruff tries to respond to student feedback and is improving. Boot pizza is always the answer though.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Beautiful campus with all the amenities (the gym, an indoor and outdoor pool, many quads, the cafeteria, a health food market, an all-night every-night diner, etc.) as well as all classes within a ten minute walk from any dorm. Very nicely kept grounds. Love the live oaks. Monroe is the best social freshman dorm. Butler is arguably the worst. The housing selection process is kind of a sh*t-show every year, but in the end it all works out.

Off-Campus Housing: Most students are able to find places within a decent price range if they feel that's what they want to do.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: New Orleans is great with food. Many tasty places that are affordable for students. Also, there is a good number of coffee shops off-campus.

2 College Freshman

Administration: When you have neighbors that blare their music until 2am, living in the dorms isn't ideal... The attendance policy also could be worked on.

A.B. Freeman School of Business's grading policies could be edited; they are very strict.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: Tulane's pretty generous with merit as they should be with the price of our tuition. Still, the awards could be better.

Campus Food: LBC is great. PJ's & Starbucks are delightful.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I like living on campus. It's safe and tight-knit.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

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.
