Drug Safety: Overall drugs and alcohol are very accessible, so as long as you have self control and friends who aren't crazy then you will be fine here.

Campus Housing: For how much money Tulane spends they could do a great deal more on improving the freshman dorms, although it is kind of an 'experience' so to say living in a place like Monroe or Sharp.

Greek Life: I'm not involved, so I really can't say much. /i hear the parties are good, and most sororities/fraternities do a lot of volunteer work.

Athletics: People realy don't care about sports at Tulane. After half-time, the only people still there are in the band.

Campus Housing: The dorms are definitely overpriced for their quality. The social atmosphere is great though depending on where you live.

Greek Life: All of the parties are thrown by fraternities. The fraternities are a bigger deal than the sororities. If you aren't in Greek life, you will not be an outcast, but it definitely has a major presence on campus.

Health & Safety: This year there have been a lot of break-ins and other assaults on campus. I would not feel comfortable walking alone or going to the library after dark by myself.

Overall Experience: First semester freshmen year is terrible. Maybe it gets better but so far I have very mixed feelings. I know a lot of people you are frustrated that academics are not taken seriously or feel that the northeastern culture ruins is too overwhelming and are transfering.

Overall Experience: Most people don't realize how much of a party school Tulane is and therefore most people who aren't directly affiliated just see it as a good academic university.

Campus Housing: Housing is a pain to work with if you have any sort of problem. Some good freshmen housing options for every sort of student.

Greek Life: Greek life is what you choose it to be. It can be your whole life or you might not notice at all depending on how much you participate.

Athletics: The school spends a lot of money on tailgating but the football team is lame. Most people leave the games after the first quarter if they attend at all.

2 College Freshman

Overall Experience: First and foremost freshman year is all about partying. Students go out on average of three nights a week. Yes there are some students who stay in to study on the weekend but these kids are usually heavily judged for not going out. This tends to be less true with engineering students. The school seems to be made up of mostly kids from the northeast in particular New York which really changes the feel of the school. There is a general culture of not caring and even though the administration tries to cover it up, the university puts higher priority into paying for our pathetic sports teams. Most of the professors I have come across are extremely dedicated to their students and are willing to put in extra time outside of class and office hours to help them. Overall the academics are amazing and if you can overlook, work around, or even enjoy the work hard play harder style. Equipment is old and science labs are outdated and useless.

Health & Safety: The uptown campus is safe, but not so much in the downtown campus. Cannot blame the school though.

Health & Safety: There is security everywhere, there's no doubt about it- but their effectiveness is another story. Security guards are constantly seen on their cell phones. How are they supposed to protect us if they're not even paying attention?

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I definitely have gained useful knowledge from my classes thus far. My professors overwhelmingly care about their students and teach effectively. I do not ever feel like a number in a classroom- professors in large lectures who I have never even met with at office hours knew my name and how I was doing in the course. It's an awesome learning environment.

Campus Housing: The freshman dorm's aren't terrible, but nothing to write home about either. Sharp has awesome cabinet space but I hit my head on them every single morning. The freshman dorms mostly have communal bathrooms, and the lack of privacy sort of stinks but you learn to deal with it.

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.
