I chose Tulane because I wanted to feel at home in my academic community. Growing up as a New Orleans metro area local, I attended many Tulane events such as Crawfest, baseball games, and guest speaker lectures. Tulane is, and has always been, a place where I feel comfortable and at home, and I hope to pass that on to future generations of Tulanians.
My favorite professor at Tulane is Professor Ambika Prasad. Professor Prasad teaches management courses in the Freeman School of Business. I have taken three classes with Professor Prasad, Organizational Behavior, Leadership, and Dimensions of Human Resource Management, and I’ve loved each one of them. Professor Prasad is a truly engaging instructor and I encourage any prospective business students to take a class with her!
Since New Orleans has such a wide array of festivals, it’s difficult to choose a favorite, which is why I’ll share my top three! 1. Bayou Boogaloo: music and arts festival taking place on Bayou St. John. 2. Tennessee Williams Literary Festival: festival for music, art, and theater fanatics located in the French Quarter. 3. New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival: the quintessential New Orleans food and music fest located at the Fair Grounds Race Course.
