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.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are a diverse group of individuals from all over the world who come from many different backgrounds;however, the one thing that we have in common is our desire for a higher education, which is enough.

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

Before coming to Tulane, I wish I had known that I was ready. Although life is fast, work is hard, balancing two jobs is even harder, and missing home is a pain, I was ready to take on the responsibility of caring for myself in that world. There would be days when I questioned whether I could make it, where it was hard to get out of bed, and it seemed easier to quit. I wish I had known that I would get past it all, then I would have had a little more faith in myself starting off.

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

If I could go back and talk to myself in senior year, I would tell her to go to an in-state school, take it easy, and listen to my gut a little more. I know you want to start your life, and that is okay, but you must learn to control the fire you feel inside. Even though you are correct in thinking that you "only have one life to live and you might as well make the most of it", you have to realize that debt is a really big burden to carry around with you. You are a very emotional and firey young lady. I love that about you, but maybe this time you should slow down a little bit. You are going to miss your family terribly, and even though the pictures depict the campus to be lovely, you have to understand that because youre struggling so much financially, you will suffer here a bit. Its going to be a rough ride from here on out, but no matter what you choose, you can do it. Keep spreading light and have faith that you will make the right decision now.

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

I have three main points of advice that I strongly encourage you to take into conisderation: 1.) It doesn't matter where you attend college, but rather, it matters what you make of that college education and experience. If you take advantage of all the resources that college has to offer, I promise that you will thrive. Don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone in the process. 2.) When deciding on a college, don't choose a school for it's name or location but choose a school based on what feels right for YOU. I emphasize the word "you" because, ultimately, this is a place where you will be spending the next four years of your life. This is a time where it is okay to be selfish and think about what is truly going to make you happy. 3.) HAVE FUN. You are about to experience the best four years of your life. School comes first but that does not mean you can't meet fantastic people and make amazing memories together.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

I brag about living in New Orleans and how incredible the city is. I also brag about all the opportunities that Tulane has in terms of tutoring and career advice.

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

I wish I had known that the school is predominantly Jewish so even though many people come from different states, it is not as ethnically different as one might assume.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Tulane and the city of New Orleans attracts adventurous students. Adventurous both academically and socially. The university is flexible enough to let you pursue degrees in different fields. The city provides a young adult with adventures and opportunities to make memories for a lifetime.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

If I had to pick one, there wasn't enough study space when I attended Tulane (2008-2012).

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

Don't fret too much over which college to attend. College and life in general is about what you make out of it. Given a situation, give your best effort and make the most out of it. Study your butt off for school. Party your butt off while you're not studying to build experiences and memories for a lifetime. You're given so much free time in college. You'll never have this much free time after college. Do as much as you can while you're in college, while you have time to adventure. You'll do great. Give it your best. And never look back! Better things are ahead of you. Keep going.

Very driven, but happy students. They worked extremely hard but also took the oppotunity to enjoy the culture of New Orleans in their free time.

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

Entering a new phase in your life is always scary. You’re worried about what your new classmates and roommates will think of you, including: how you dress, act and everything in between. You’re going to feel really awkward at first. You’ll always be second-guessing your outfits and how you plan to spend your free time. Those feelings are completely normal. The most important thing to remember is to always be true to who you are. You worked eighteen years (or longer!) to become the person you are today and, guess what: that person is pretty great. You’ll fit in with the right crowd by just doing what you’ve done the rest of your life. Other than that, remember to eat well and exercise. Working out is a great way to relieve the stress that college can bring and balance out all that Easy Mac you’re going to make in your dorm room microwave. Take a deep breath, study hard and enjoy meeting new people over these next four years. It’s going to be great.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

The location and the pride that the students and faculty have in their school. Students at Tulane are extraordinarily happy. The school-sponsored activities, such as crawfish boils, are spectacular. Beautiful campus, great gym, great location.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Anyone who isn't interested in getting off campus and exploring shouldn't go to Tulane. Furthermore, if you're the type of person who can't pick and choose when to study and when to go out, the school probably isn't a good fit for you - there's so much to do that you could arguably go out and have a great time on any night of the week. If you're close-minded about anything, Tulane isn't for you. The school encourages constructive debate, and discourages racism and bigotry.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

Because it's in New Orleans, Tulane is always exciting. There's plenty to do on and off campus. Student programming always makes sure that there are incredible speakers, concerts, movies, comediens, and events. Additionally, most of the people are really accepting of others and their interests, backgrounds, etc. Tulane is great because it provides an extremely interesting, enriching environment for its students. It really is a one-of-a-kind college experience. Virtually anyone could come here and meet a vast array of people with similar interests. It's very easy to make friends.

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

When you get all moved into your freshman dorm room, don’t immediately start pushing your mom away - you’ll start to miss her sooner than you think. Please pay more attention in art history. It’s information that you’ll eventually wish you had memorized. Start going to the French club meetings sooner. You could have been fluent by now. When the hurricane traps you in your dormitory hallway with twenty other kids you have nothing in common with, don’t fret. Everyone else feels as awkward as you do and you’re only a week away from best friends.Get a job immediately.Kiss the girl you meet during the party on the waterfront, underneath the electrical tower right after you realize the music stopped and everyone else is a speck in the distance.Search for scholarships relentlessly and call your parents once a week.Beware of spicy crawfish.Use ratemyprofessors more – a talented teacher can make any subject interesting; while a dull one can ruin the classes you’re most excited for.Seriously, go lightly on the crawfish.Stop believing that college is the step you take before real life, and realize that it’s already begun.
