Everyone parties and no one cares about academics. Kids basically take classes with a pass-fail mindset

Out of all of the colleges I visited the one that popped out the most was Tulane University in New Orleans, Louisiana. During the tour the tour guide mentioned their psychology department and personally I feel like they should have advertise their psychology department a little more but this was very interesting to me because I wanted to major in psychology. I also like the fact that you can study more than one subject because I was very interested in studying theatre.

I could not ask for more. I have been exposed to global issues with attending legal/academic scholarships
