Concerning academics, I felt that Tulane has a strong STEM program, especially for neuroscience majors. The professors are enthusiastic, the course material is challenging, and the exams are made to be difficult to ensure that only dedicated students remain in the program. However, Tulane diverts most of its funding towards the Business school, and STEM students are relegated to old labs, facilities, lecture halls, and study spaces. Additionally, Tulane demands too much of the STEM professors, which decreases the amount of time they are available to students.
Tulane's medium size makes it easy to access the many resources and opportunities available on campus. Some intro class professors are not ideal, but as students advance further into their major, most professors are extremely accessible and genuinely want to see their students succeed. Tulane attracts students from all over the country with diverse interests.
It’s a school that cares more about getting more students than caring about the students they have.

The advice I would give to parents and/or students about finding the right college is to be sure that you make visits to the schools you think you want to be at. If at all possible, take advantage of the "over night" program. It's important to feel and observe what goes on in the classes as well as in the dorms and the social life of each school. I'm a perfect example of that. I was admitted to a college in Pennsylvania as an above average student from high school. I did visit the college but never stayed over to experience all the "business" and such of that college. By the time the end of the first semester was near, I had fallen well below a 2.0. Now I don't know if it was because of the courses , the teachers, the lack of student life, or that I was living in a valley of Pennsylvania ( I grew up on the Atlantic Ocean). But all I know is that I researched Tulane more closly for it's student life as well as the majors offered and its geographic position . Wow , what a difference ; 3.7
My classmates were smart, fun, and interesting people mostly, though many have lived sheltered lives.
I absolutely love being at Tulane. I immensely enjoy being in the city of New Orleans and I feel a sense of community and belonging not only to the school but to the city as a whole. I find that Tulane is just the right size. It seems like a fairly small school, but this breeds a sense of community throughout the student body without making students feel restricted in the way they spend their time and in who they spend their time with. There is never a shortage of on campus or off campus events, and the culture in New Orleans is one that enables students to engage in a variety of activities and it ensures a unique experience for everyone willing to open themselves up to new ideas.
Yes but the same stereotypes exist and are accurate at the majority of colleges. It's up to you if you involve yourself in these aspects.
Tulane is big in public service. Everyone is required hours of service each year.
like to party
It's in the city with the highest crime rate of 2008.
Coming into Tulane, I was given quite a few impressions, either pertaining to the school, itself, or the city surrounding it. My boyfriend here is Jewish. His best friend is Jewish. Her best friend is Jewish. I think you get the idea. Last time I checked, about a third of the student population would identify themselves as Jewish. So what does this cause? If nothing else, we have a very active campus Hillel and many students that walk around wh the assuption that one third of the people they'll run into on any given day are Jewish. And that's probably pretty accurate. One guy in my class even customized "Jewlane" shirts, in the same style as our school's classic green shirts with the white "Tulane" lettering (with a marked three-letter difference, of course). In addition, I've found that our "Only in New Orleans, Only at Tulane" motto is particularly appropriate to describe the party scene. Sure, there are crazy parties at every college, but c'mon - it's New Orleans. And I think it's safe to say the scene here is unlike that of any other school. The school tends to have a reputation for kids with bad livers who never stop partying, and while you're sure to run into some of those, there are plenty of students who absain AND STILL have a social life. Parties are fun and, provided you remember them, will give you material for great stories to tell at other parties, but if it's not your scene, it's all too easy to avoid. I have plenty of friends here who don't drink and they still have a great time. If you can get bored in New Orleans, you're probably going well of your way to do so. The only other false impression I was given is that the school is very diverse. I can hear one of my friends here say from time to time, "I miss black people." Sure, we have diversity, but like many schools in the US, I'm one of many, many white kids. However, if I were to list some of my best friends here I could tell you that one is a bisexual swing dancer from Idaho, another is a Puerto Rican girl from Jacksonville, Florida, who boasts a very colorful condom collection, a girl from Ohio who spent the last 2 years in Mexico, a musical theatre pre-med with what is possibly the cutest southern accent ever, and another is my boyfriend, who is from a tiny Jewish high school in Mercer Island, Washington. I have yet to meet someone here from my hometown. Even if you can't see variegated skin tones wherever you go, the different socio-economic backgrounds, experiences and viewpoints that coalesce at Tulane is sure to provide one with stimulating conversation and experiences that you can find "only in New Orleans, only at Tulane."
My school is very student friendly as there is always help available for difficult homework, and all of the students are friendly and willing to assist you in any way, shape, or form; it's a wonderful feeling to be so welcomed.
The best thing about Tulane is that the school is in New Orleans. The city has a unique culture that offers a better education than a classroom can.
Best known for having a rigerous acidemic load, and for being in a really fun city new orleans
A well balanced person: work hard ,play hard mentality is best.
I wish I had known about the overall lack of transportation around the city. I knew there was a streetcar, but I quickly learned that it was unreliable and didn't anywhere near a grocery store or drug store. Luckily, I have a car down here so it is not a problem now, but I wish I had known that fact before my freshman year.
Someone who is very serious and wants to find themselves in an environment where higher thinking is common
Most staff member at the school are quite helpful, but students may encounter unecessary bureaucratic manuvers they may have to deal with in housing and dining - do not expect a high standard of service in these areas. Students should have their parents do the liasoning work should they encounter any problems with these departments. Also, as a private institution, students' constitutional rights that they may enjoy in the public sphere may be curbed by the internal judicial and conduct system.
If I had to pick one, there wasn't enough study space when I attended Tulane (2008-2012).
Well, I'm not gonna lie. The football team sucks. And, as I'm the kind of sports fan who mostly likes teams when they are winning (thats easy to be in Boston, a little harder in NOLA) I don't go to football games. But, I love baseball games. The stadium in new and huge and the games are well attended. From what I hear, the basketball games are fun too. I also have friends who play in intramural and rec soccer and basketball teams. Its really easy to get involved in the on-campus sports team if you want to. But, this is no big football school. If you want that, head north to Baton Rouge and look at LSU. Go Tigers!
I loved the campus, faculty, and city
PJ's Coffee is a popular place to meet friends and study.
