What is your overall opinion of this school?

When I visited Tulane University with my school, I was impressed by the campus and what it had to offer. The students seem to be very connected and have great relationships while still being a larger school. It is important to note that this is a huge party school but they do embrace it. There is a lot of encouragement to be social and connected in the community.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Tulane University is itself a reflection of the city in which it lies. Just like the Big Easy, Tulane possesses a never-ending mixture of different cultures, a rich history, and yes, the affinity to have a good time. But perhaps what is most striking about Tulane is the presence of community that is so prevalent throughout all of New Orleans. The first thing I noticed about Tulane is how friendly everybody is, and it’s something that I’m reminded of daily. From the friends you see everyday, to the servers in Bruff Commons who ask you how your day is going every time you step into the dining hall, you will always feel welcome no matter where you go. Tulane even implements its community-focused mindset into the curriculum, as all students are required to take two community service based courses throughout their four years at Tulane. These courses range from tutoring underprivileged kids in a foreign language to running a website for a local nonprofit, and they have been some of my favorite classes that I’ve taken at Tulane, as they truly allow you to get to know New Orleans in a more personal way. In general, there are a wide variety of classes to choose from depending on your major, but they do tend to fill up quickly, so it can be difficult to get your ideal schedule, especially as a freshman. Classes at Tulane are definitely no walk in the park, and they often require a significant amount of independent work and research, but professors are always willing to help if you ask for it. Most professors have very accessible office hours to go over assignments, discuss concepts from class, and even just chat about current events. Despite demanding academic schedules, most Tulane students round out their free time with extracurricular activities. One walk down McCalister Drive on campus will show you the abundance of clubs and societies that Tulane offers, including Greek life, club sports, student council, tour guide ambassadors, and so much more! On weekends, students can often be found venturing out into the French Quarter to explore New Orleans, or by the social pool at the Reily Student Recreation Center to catch a tan. While Tulane doesn’t have great varsity sports teams, the university is still a D1 school, and students will often go out to tailgates and games to be part of the school spirit frenzy. Tulane’s campus is nothing short of gorgeous, boasting live oaks dripping with Spanish moss and gray stone buildings coated in wisteria, but the accommodations themselves are not always as nice. For example, the older dorms often have infrastructural issues and can sometimes flood, and the dining hall can easily become repetitive and bland. However, with all of its quirks and perks, Tulane is truly a place like no other. As the New Orleanians would say, let the good times roll!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

While it's not perfect, that's not necessarily a bad thing. It has a lot of room to grow and improve. I don't regret picking this as my dream college in the slightest. I've had bad moments, sure. Some that made it feel like the weight if the world was coming down on my shoulders. But I've also had a lot of good moments. I've gone through a lot of self-discovery here and been able to take steps towards my "best me". I really do love Tulane.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Tulane University with all my heart and truly believe it is one of the best universities in the country and the best fit for me. I have never once regretted my decision to attend and still have the same love and respect for Tulane I felt during the first few weeks of freshman year. The academics, campus, social scene and all other defining characteristics are top-notch at all times. I have grown as both a student and a young woman during my past years at Tulane University and in the city of New Orleans. I would not change anything about myself, my university, and my time if given another choice.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

There are a lot of issues with Tulane surrounding social issues such as rape culture on campus, but the experiences I had with school officials were quick and relatively painless when it came to dealing with an issue I had in this field. They are also open to exploring new options to correct these matters and definitely taking steps to right these issues. There are also issues I have with how on campus housing is run and how much it costs as it is a bit pricey. The meal plans are also extremely expensive even though there aren't many options for people looking to eat healthier or with dietary restrictions.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Tulane is the perfect school for many people. The party scene is huge so there's always something to do on weekend nights. The academics are arguably easy, depending on how much you care. I struggled academically in high school and easily pulled a 4.0 my first year. People are definitely involved in extracurriculars; making an intramural sports team with a group of friends can be a lot of fun. The one major disappointment about Tulane is the lack of integration of students into New Orleans. Tulane was sold to me as an opportunity to being a life in the city, when in reality most students don't leave the campus/audobon area for their first two years other than to get brunch at Willa Jean.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am only a rising sophomore, and my freshman year was very different from high school. I found the academics to be the strong point of the university. Many of my professors (mostly in the school of Liberal Arts) have been wonderful, intelligent, and excited to teach, however some of my friends in STEM courses have complained about less than great professors. The open curriculum allows you to take classes in different schools, which is wonderful. I think it is worth noting that much of the social scene revolves around drinking.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I have found my home at Tulane. I was initially wary of the party culture once I enrolled, but I quickly found out that Tulane is a lot more than just a high ranking of a party school. I love the challenging academic culture of the school and there feels like there is always something to do on campus. My professors (for the most part) are accessible, approachable, and intelligent. I enjoy my classes, my major, my friends, and my dorm. Housing isn't the nicest, but the weather and elements in New Orleans also contributes to their deterioration. The food is average but easily accessible. I adore Tulane. Roll wave!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Tulane. Considering I jumped in at the beginning of the spring semester, I adjusted well. Everyone is welcoming and inviting. Classes are interesting and require reading or homework, but nothing unmanageable. New Orleans itself is an amazing city to live in and I recommend everyone if not living here, at least visiting for a week.
