Voodoo Fest is the best ever. So much cheaper than other festivals and always an amazing lineup...PLUS YOU GET TO WEAR COSTUMES!
There are so many!! To name a few: Mojo Coffee House on Freret, the Fly, Cafe Luna on Magazine, and Mint Vietnamese on Freret.
I chose Tulane initially based on academics (it had my majors, I could change majors no problem, it was prestigious etc.), but when I visited during Destination Tulane, the St. Patricks Day parade was happening...... What an insane experience. After that parade and all of my interactions with the local New Orleanians, I knew I could not pass up the opportunity to live in this amazing city for four years!
Gender and Sexuality with Claire Sheller was the best class I have taken at Tulane thus far. I thought I was a feminist before I took this class and it completely changed my outlook on the world. Honestly, I think Gender and Sexuality should be required for all undergrad students because it teaches you empathy and how to approach the amazing and dynamic world around you.
