Here's your chance: Say anything about your college!

It is a unique place with great traditions and all of the food, music and culture of New Orleans. It is also a very academic school with high standards.

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

First of all, start early and let your search be wide and inclusive. As you continue, realisticly pare down your choices and if you can, visit those campuses that you are really interested in. Make sure you participate and register for each college visited as this has some importance for acceptance. Look into both private and state schools as private schools may have the scholarship/grant funds to even out costs with the state schools, It also seems that if you are a very good student, and you apply to schools that you have a high chance of acceptance, those schools may want your caliber of student and you will receive scholarship offers. While this is a stressful time for both parents and students, students usually make the correct choice and wind up happy at the school they have chosen.

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

Don't base your decision on fear. Choose something that is challenging to your comfort and that offers programs and activities that you never thought you would be interested in. College is an opportunity to get away from your normal lifestyle and try something new.

Students here are typically from families with money and are lively, but often unaware of reality.

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

An undergraduate education gives students the chance to find themselves amongst people that think like them, while enhancing their understanding of the world today. It is hard for students to decide where they want to attend school because they do not know who they are yet. It is crucial to find a place where you feel at home and like you fit in. I don't think it is healthy for students to disregard the current student population when looking at a school.

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

The college search can become overwhelming, which is why it is important to keep your priorities in focus. Quite simply, what are the 3 most important things you are looking for in a college? Are you looking for diversity or something a bit more homogenous? A big or a small school? Far away or close to home? These are all things to consider. Sure, schools will try to shock and awe you with their great meal plans, new workout facilities and newly renovated dorms, but when you get down to it, these things are superficial and will have little impact on your actual college experience. For me, it would really be all about the diversity of the student body, the quality of the liberal arts education and the strength of the school community. I didn't have these focuses when I searchied for a college, yet I managed to find my dream school. These are just a few simple suggestions to keep in mind to make the school search a more fruitful one.

What's the one thing you wish someone had told you about freshman year?

Get ready to juggle a lot socially. Anticipate and plan ahead when it comes to balancing school work and social life.

What kind of person should attend this school?

A well balanced person: work hard ,play hard mentality is best.

What's unique about your campus?

The beat thing about Tulane University is that it has a great reupation for being an excellent school that is willing to stand behind there students and it is also a safe place that definitly feels like home.

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

Describe the students at your school.

Tulanians are generally wealthy, kind of spoiled, and very entitled--but they're also generally nice people, friendly, happy, and fairly intelligent with their own interesting life stories.

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

GO VISIT. Tulane was at the bottom of my list and I already had my roommate picked out for UCLA. But when my mom made me go visit Tulane, I fell in love. I realized that education is about a lot more than your school's reputation and that going away could be the best decision to make. Go to a medium-sized school, and GO AWAY FOR SCHOOL. Also, decide to enjoy it. If you go in with a skeptical attitude and don't try to make friends or get involved, you won't have fun. But if you decide to take advantage of the present opportunities, things will work out and you'll have a blast.

What's unique about your campus?

The size. Big enough to always be meeting new people but small enough to feel comfortable. Also, the location. You can't beat New Orleans as an interesting, cultured place to receive an education that transcends the books. There is always something to do, someone to talk to, music to hear, etc.
