I chose Tulane because...

I wanted a school that prioritized not only academics but community engagement. Additionally, I am interested in studying education policy and New Orleans has one of the most unique education systems in the country. I knew coming to Tulane would provide me with the resources and environment I needed to pursue my interests.

Favorite Tulane class/professor...

My favorite spots in New Orleans are...
