I chose Tulane because...

I wanted to be at a school that had a welcoming, compassionate, involved community. I felt that Tulane was a good fit for me because it not only had great academics, but it also provided opportunities for me to explore and grow as a person.

My favorite spots in New Orleans are...

Audubon Park, City Park, Frenchman Street Art Market, The Fly, and any restaurants that serve Oysters!

Favorite Tulane class/professor...

My favorite class at Tulane was Positive Psychology Honors with Dr. Carrie Wyland. We spent the semester exploring the true definition of "happiness" and learned about how to foster well-being. It was incredibly interesting and also so applicable! I'll never forget what I learned in that class.

My favorite NOLA festival is...

Po Boy Festival!
