Tulane University of Louisiana Top Questions

What is the stereotype of students at your school?

Allison

A lot of people see us as a Jewish school (Jewlane) or a party school (I've heard that our unofficial motto is "First we out think you, then we out drink you.").

Matthew

Upper-middle Class, Jewish, drunks. ...It fits pretty darn well, really.

Hunter

That everyone is Jewish, fratty and that we all party 6 nights a week.

Samantha

That we party/drink a lot. That there are a lot of rich Jewish people.

Paul

Students who are smart but lazy, wealthy outsiders (not originally from NOLA) who terrorize uptown New Orleans and whatever bar they may be visiting that night.

Dan

Tulane is full of rich, snobby, preppy kids who do not mix well with the diverse New Orleans community.

Cameron

That the student body is comprised of New England wealthy preps (Jewlane, anyone?) and down-South football players and scholarship kids. Either way, all of Tulane loves to party, drink, and still try to keep up their grades.

Steven

Common stereotypes about Tulane students are that they are Jewish, rich, and from the Northeast. Another big stereotype is that students are big time drinkers.

Alex

That all students are short, spoiled, jewish Yankees who live off of their daddy's money and credit cards and don't care at all about school or people. In addition, they all went to boarding school for high school and are only in New Orleans to drink and party.

Katie

Drinking: Of course it exists, we live in the only city in the country where public intoxication is expected, not rejected. Football: Our team sucks, hate to say it. I come from Texas and it is a bit of a disappointment. Baseball: This would be the sport in which we excell. Mardi Gras: The time of your life.

Kate

Some stereotypes about Tulane and Tulane students include that students may not be of the same academic caliber as other Top 50 schools. This is just a stereotype that continues to perpetuate due to the fact of the location of the school, people always assume that we would go down to Bourbon St. every chance we got and drink 24/7.

Alex

Tulane students party entirely too much!

Jerry

They come to New Orleans for the university education, they receive their degrees, then they leave the city.

Jesse

that they're all jewish, that they're hard core partiers, and that they're not that smart. some people think tulane is a safety school and is a joke

Julie

It's a party school!

Al

Stereotypes, OH yes Tulane has them and many of them are not good ones... Tulane has next to no wish to have any of the NON-traditional students. Mostly in age, However it is NOT the only. Any student that can stand up for their rights can be treated in ways of underhandness and lies and other things they can think up to do. People in places they should never be in, such as a fox and the hen house and others. There are some that are in the right places that do their best for students BUT NOT in the numbers they should be.. Be ready to have deal with colon type thinking!! BY many their not just students but every part of there.
