5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Tulane is an amazing school with opprotunities for community involvement like no other school in the nation. While New Orleans was not my first choice of where I wanted to live, the city has grown on me and every other student. The school spirit and cultural pride you experience down in nola is like no other. Once you visit you'll understand.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
