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.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Tulane is an academic wonderland. It is located in one of the most culturally diverse cities in the world and provides plenty of opportunities to get involved. Tulane also provides community service to New Orleans and makes sure that its students give back to their community. I have yet to meet a single person, student or professor, who is not friendly and helpful. The classes are perfectly sized and the professor to student ratio is ideal. While a course may be difficult, Tulane offers free tutoring to insure its students succeed academically.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love this school! I went by chance and I found a great group of friends, a solid support of upperclassmen willing to help out the freshman, a plethora of clubs and extracurriculars, great weather, and informative classes. I currently have a 4.0 after managing 8 classes; anything is possible at Tulane!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Tulane. I'm very happy with my decision to attend this university. It is well known for its academics, and it is a really great school. But there is also a large enough social scene to find the balance between academic life and social life. It truly is the perfect school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Have absolutely nothing but good things to say about Tulane. Small classes, brilliant professors, beautiful weather, an amazing city, fantastic volunteer opportunities, and a great career center are only some of the incredible services you'll encounter here. It doesn't matter if you're involved in Greek life, but it's an option, and a pretty low-key one for a Southern school. Students here are involved and care about issues on campus, locally, and nationally. Administration is responsive to concerns. We have great events on campus such as Crawfest and obviously the opportunity to seek off-campus culture. Can't imagine my life without Tulane, roll wave.

No better city for college

Tulane is a great school. You receive a wonderful eduction from professors who are engaging and eager to become your friends in and outside of the classroom. It's not uncommon to see students getting lunch or coffee with their professors around campus, or even getting a drink at one of the favorite local bars. The school does have some gen ed requirements, but overall it is a very flexible curriculum. Many students have multiple majors or minors (double major with a minor or single major and triple minor are common) since the departments are very accommodating in accepting classes from other departments to count towards a major/minor. New Orleans is also filled with culture that can't be found anywhere else. It takes only 15 minutes to get to the French Quarter and Frenchman Street for great music and art. There are also a ton of festivals and any day you can find something exciting to do. Many events usually revolve around food (the creole tomato festival and the po'boy festival are just two examples) and there are hundreds of amazing places to eat downtown and also closer to campus. Although the school is located near all of the favorite NOLA attractions, Tulane is also very good at bringing New Orleans culture straight to campus. One of the biggest events of the year is Crawfest in the Spring where the thousands of pounds of crawfish are brought in and the entire quad turns into a big crawfish boil with live jazz bands. New Orleans is of course known for its' parties and students have a very active night life. Most bars near campus allow anyone over 18 to enter and are officially 21+ to drink of course but once you are in they aren't very good or don't seem to care much about regulating that rule. Most underclassmen hang out around campus while upperclassmen explore bars are clubs around the city where you have to be 21 to get in. Most friday nights fraternities throw parties at their houses and all of the greek houses are right next to campus and the local bars, so students will wander between the bars and houses those nights. Overall Tulane is a great place to go to school not only due to the wonderful academics but also the vibrant culture and city.
