What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Tulane. It's a wonderful university with rigorous academics and a beautiful campus, all in the heart of one of the most unique cities in the country. Tulane is like no other school, as no other school quite embraces and epitomizes the culture of the city around it. New Orleans is an incredible place to attend college, but New Orleans is not interchangeable with Tulane. Tulane has its own culture that differs from that of New Orleans. While Tulane has a reputation for being a "play hard" school, it also a reputable academic institution with world-renowned professors and a plethora of interesting, unique classes, filled with genuinely engaged students. If you're looking for a school in a magical city, filled with as much fun as intellect, Tulane is for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Tulane is a great school in a unique city, but like any school, it could improve. The academics are rigorous but manageable. I think that there are some really interesting and thought-provoking classes offered here such as musical cultures in the Gulf South or theater in contemporary society. The professors are approachable and friendly. I have sensed that most professors care about a student's success. As a freshman, I can't say that I've met a professor who has truly inspired me, but I've heard from upperclassmen about some really impassioned ones. The social life on Tulane can be great. There are a lot of clubs offered. I'm in mixed martial arts club, which is so much fun. There are always events going on so you can only be bored if you are trying to be bored. Of course Tulane being in New Orleans, there is a lot of partying. I personally think this is where Tulane could improve. I don't think that there should necessarily be less partying, but I think there needs to be smarter partying, especially concerning alcohol. I think there are too many weekends where an ambulance comes to campus to help a drunk person. Politically, Tulane is fairly liberal although maybe not compared to a campus in New York City. I personally like a leaning liberal school where you can still find opposing views. Many people I talk with complain about the injustices of the world, especially mass incarceration, racism, sexism, privilege, especially white privilege, and more. I definitely believe that these topics must be discussed and we must recognize when we say something derogatory or that by going to Tulane means we have privilege. However, I struggle with these discussions too because complaining does not get you very far. I see too often that people complain, but don't offer any solutions. I also think that as politically active as Tulane students are, I would like to see more efforts to do something proactive to make a difference rather than protest or march, both which I fully support, but then there needs to be more follow up to continue pushing for change. All in all, I'm very happy at Tulane. I've found a great group of friends, I enjoy putting in the work for class, and I have time to do fun activities during the week and weekend.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

At Tulane University there are an endless supply of resources. Need help with your writing skills? There is a workshop for that. Struggling with academics? There are advisers and tutors available for you. There is always someone to help you with anything. The campus is majorly involved and welcoming and has a great sense of pride.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a very good university with a great balance in academics, extracurriculars, arts, etc. Tulane offers the ability to combine your major with other fields, so you are not limited to one field of study and have a good chance of combining several things you like. It also has great facilities and teachers.

Very unsafe area. Students get robbed in broad daylight in their homes, dorma, and library. Crime is under reported. Unsafe city overall. Poor infrastructure. Louisiana is one of the poorest states and it shows. Never recovered after Katrina.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Tulane University provides many great opportunities to get involved in anything that interests you. Academic life is challenging, but not competitive. The campus is beautiful and safe, and its location in the incredible city of New Orleans cannot be beat.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Tulane is a good academic school. The teachers are all have office hours, and there are many other opportunities for students to get help with their schoolwork. As for majors, Tulane's business programs stand out, while its STEM majors are lackluster. There is a lot of partying at this school, but students know how to balance it all out. Commuting to the school and staying on campus are two very different things. If you want to be active in the Tulane community, it would be best to stay on campus. Having good friendships with other students can be hard for commuter students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is hard not to have a good time at Tulane. The city of New Orleans is practically Disneyland for college students. There is always something to do, whether it is on or off campus. That being said, Tulane does have many flaws. Located in a city so cultured and diverse, Tulane University is surprisingly homogeneous. The university advertises itself as having a diverse campus; while there are many international students, as well as students representing all 50 states, the school noticeably lacks in socioeconomic and ethnic variation. In addition, in recruiting students, Tulane portrays a campus climate in which all "Tulanians" are all highly involved in the New Orleans community. Again, this is incorrect advertising. Tulane University is very much in its own bubble. While community service hours are mandatory for all students and the university holds a few community-wide events, students are not integrated to the point where they might perceive themselves as members of the city. Tulane students largely view themselves as visitors: here to have a good time and then go home. To be fair, being involved off-campus is hard when students are required to live on-campus their first two years and are charged extraordinary parking fees. That being said, the Tulane staff make it a point to recognize any and all concerns students have, and actively seek to improve them. The faculty are all extremely supportive, and truly care about the success of their students. Arguably the greatest benefit offered by this institution is the academic flexibility: students can combine any number of degrees and majors together, if they so wish, with few restrictions. Tulane students are all very active on campus and eager to achieve, and the atmosphere is genuinely a happy one. If one can overlook the imprecise visage that Tulane recruiters create and can see the university for what it truly is, I bet any student will fall in love with it just as much as I have.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love the culture of New Orleans and I love the campus! The party scene gets to big a little much for me, especially first semester of freshmen year when everyone feels the need to go out to impress everyone else, but by second semester things have settled down. The Greek life seems loyal but isn't huge on campus - as a student who doesn't participate, I see girls loyal to their sororities but not shoving it in my face. I LOVE ALL THE PROFESSORS AND CLASSES. Class size is perfect and I really feel connected to many of my professors. I love my school and I love my new city!!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Tulane University is a great school to go to if you're into academics and social scene. I would not recommend it for the scholarly hermit types (such as myself) as it can be easy to feel overwhelmed by the school's social leanings. That being said, the financial aid is amazing and the school really encourages you to get involved in the community.
