5 College Junior

Overall Experience: A degree fro Tulane is invaluable, a notion I have experienced even before graduating.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The new dorms are great, the old dorms are ehh.. what do you expect?

4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is a big part of campus life outside of studies; however, it is not necessary at all to be involved in.

3 College Junior

Athletics: There is a lot of school spirit for our division 1 teams, despite their lack of performance.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love the city of New Orleans. It provides an enriching environment for my studies and helps foster academic growth.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I don't have any personal experiences with the alumni network and I'm not sure I'd get much benefit from Tulane alumni in the future. Nonetheless, I still feel as though Tulane provides a quality education so the value of the degree will show once I begin studying at medical school. However, I would like to note that it took me several months of e-mailing and trying to visit 10+ professors before any of the laboratories at Tulane offered me an internship at both the downtown and uptown campus.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I really enjoyed the majority of my science professors because they seemed very experienced. In fact, my general chemistry teacher gets many awards and is invited to speak at many conferences around the world as a renown researcher. As for class sizes, they tend to vary across courses, but in the sciences, it tends to get quite competitive. Overall, I do feel as though I learn a lot from all of my courses.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: There are the occasional robberies, but for the most part, the Tulane Police Department is never far away and they have installed buttons on lamp posts that you can hit to immediately have Tulane Police track the emergency. The campus is also generally pretty well lit and there aren't many crimes.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Though I didn't visit other dorms, I really enjoyed my dorm, Josephine-Louise House. The entire dorm was spacious, including the rooms, which also came with a sink, mirror, refrigerator, microwave, and walk-in closet. Furthermore, though I can't say this for other dorms, my dorm was very quiet and good for studying. It also had a gigantic ballroom with great lighting for studying as well as a comfy TV room to spend time with friends. Overall, I enjoyed living in the dorm.

Greek Life: Greek life has definitely caused trouble for Tulane and several students I've personally met look down upon some of the Greek traditions. For example, just a couple of months ago, a fraternity made a very offensive statement by building a wall of sandbags outside their house to showcase their pro-Trump take. It got so out of hand that the football team had to go over there and take down the wall themselves.

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.
