It’s a school that cares more about getting more students than caring about the students they have.

Amaris - 06/28/2021

My experience at Tulane has been an amazing so far. There is a great sense of community both on and off campus for the students. The academics are stellar and provide a little challenge for most students. There is always something going on on campus and there are plenty of things to get involved in at all times. On the weekends students love to go out and be one with the community. The students at Tulane are also always giving back to the community on New Orleans. I have had a great time so far and can not wait for the next 3 years! Roll Wave!

If you love a s school that is very involved then Tulane is a great choice. Because it is located in New Orleans it does a great job in participating with the food, culture, and people of the city. The play hard attitude also has its work hard time. But most teachers are easily accessible. And the school has many resources to ensure you are a successful student.

  3. What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

    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

  5. What is your overall opinion of this school?

    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.

  10. What is the stereotype of students at your school? Is this stereotype accurate?

    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."

    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.

  19. Tell us about the sports scene on campus.

    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!
