4 Recent Alumnus

Campus Food: Off campus is amazing. There is no place like New Orleans food. However, on campus is very average.With only one dining hall, it gets old. But the dining hall is not bad by any means.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Housing: Solid. You can definitely find affordable, nice places.

5 Recent Alumnus

Party Scene: Tulane and New Orleans party life is amazing. There is always something to do. I never get bored. You can go to fraternities, house parties, bars, and you have a crazy fun city like New Orleans. There is no place in the country that has a better social scene.

5 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: You cannot beat New Orleans food. There are so many options. I didn't even like seafood before getting here, and now I love it.

4 Recent Alumnus

Administration: Tulane's administration is solid. They are strict when they need to be but understand that we want to have fun.

5 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: I've heard that Tulane gives out the most financial aid/merit scholarships in the nation. This definitely seems to be true. So many people have scholarships and financial aid. Tulane definitely does an amazing job with aid.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Housing: The housing is definitely livable, however, it is not luxurious by any stretch. The dorms are not small, but they are usually old and slightly outdated.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of choices, but a little far

3 College Freshman

Administration: Generally it's good, but the housing department is the worst.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: They are the a few schools that provide scholarships to international students.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Sometimes Bruff is so gross, but sometimes it gives you some surprise.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: It depends on which dorm you get in.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: I wish I was more social because the party scene is great

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: NOLA food is great! I'm just like poor.

3 College Freshman

Administration: They're not strict on what actually matters but I'm not complaining. I just want more parking!

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: I got a great merit scholarship.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Bruff is kind of gross and unhealthy. At least it's convienient?

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: My dorm was kind of old and broke a lot-washers, air conditioning, blinds. But being on campus was an overall good experience.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I really depends on your major. Some professors are good, and others are bad. The math department is pretty terrible.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The Business school has a great network for the students. Freemanlink shows jobs and internships available in many different areas of the world and country.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Most girls dress comfortably in nike shorts and t-shirts. Others wear nice sundresses.

3 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Located in the city of New Orleans, Tulane is somewhat safe. TUPD patrols campus and surrounding school.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Most non-Greeks don't really pay attention to the Greek students, except how the Greek life party a lot.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Yulman Stadium has brought more students to the football game. Basketball and volleyball games are fun too, but not many students attend.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: I live in Deming Pavilion downtown. Great place to start out in NOLA, not the best to really experience NOLA. Windows are bolted shut "to reduce mold", ambulances come by all the time, pretty stark living conditions. BUT, really close to Tidewater, very secure, green line comes down here to Uptown campus, very close to the French Quarter.

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.
