Favorite Tulane class/professor...

my favorite class at Tulane is my Business TIDES class. For business students, TIDES is your first opportunity to learn about your major and explore the business world. You are forced to come out of your comfort zone, a skill that is required if you wish to succeed in business, and grow as a thinker and a public speaker.

My favorite spots in New Orleans are...

Reyn Yoga Studio, Salú, The Rum House (restaurant), The French Quarter, Audubon Park and The Fly

My favorite NOLA festival is...

Voodoo Festival

I chose Tulane because...

there is no school in this country that will better adhere to your unique personality nor make you feel as special as Tulane will. I chose Tulane because whenever I meet someone that goes here, went here, or works here, they all talk about it with the same overwhelming passion in their voice. Before I came here I would ask myself, "what is it that makes people so obsessed with Tulane?" and with every passing day I spend here, I start to understand what it is that they can't put into words. First off, it meets all the standards that you look for: well ranked, medium-sized, great reputation, wide variety of majors and minors, super fun, in a great city....etc. however I have to say that for me it was the people. You see, the students that are attracted to Tulane are the kinds of people that thrive for greatness and like to think "big", thats a quality I love about the friends I've made here. Your typical Tulane student is outgoing, super friendly, focused, funny, cordial, knows how to have a good time but also when to settle down and get their work done. However, many others will tell you that there's just something in the air here, after all, New Orleans is one of the most charming cities in the entire world. With so many opportunities and amenities to take advantage of, its hard to be uninvolved here. So no matter where you come from or what you like, there is a 100% guarantee that there's a place for you here at Tulane. I chose Tulane because every day is a new adventure and because things never get boring. Attending such a unique university in such an original city, you aren't guaranteed a "normal" college experience, but that is the very reason we all chose it.
