Really anyone could attend this school and be happy and successful. However, I would say that most people are very happy and outgoing. Most people are very academically and professionally focused in regard to their future. It would not be a school for someone who is unfocused and who would slack off easily. It's a very rigorous courseload but at the same time there is still time to have fun and try new things. Someone who is very dependent on other people may want to look elsewhere as most people at this school are independent.
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.
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.
I think that in order to attend Tulane and be successful, you need to have some discipline. It can get distracting here, and even though some people like to have fun, most people who will succeed here are the ones who can maintain a balance between the fun and the academics.
A very conservative or shy person. This is a very open-minded school and people tend to be willing to try new things. Don't come here if you life being in the crowd.
Someone who knows how to balance an active social life/ night life and school and is self-motivated. Caring about New Orleans is essential as well.
Antisemitic people should avoid the 33% Jewish student body. Also, those who hate warm weather will be miserable nine months out of the year.
a super nerd who doesnt like to go out and go crazy....someone who doesnt like new orleans or the south because location is everything.
Someone who gets home sick. Someone who cannot stand partying/drinkers/smokers. Someone who enjoys the cold weather and snow.
Super flamboyant gay guys....... the general student body isn't homophobic but there are a lot of asshole frat guys.
