Tour Guide at Tulane University
Class of 2021
Hometown: Little Rock, AR
Secondary Major: Psychology
I really love Jackson Square on the weekends. It is filled with tons of art from the locals, as well as street performers and bands. I also love to eat at Slim Goodies whenever possible, because it gets me out of the Tulane bubble and stays true to the authenticity of New Orleans without exploiting it.
I really enjoyed taking E-Biology with Professor Henry, because she was so passionate about her work. I have also enjoyed my Brain and Behavior class with Professor Black. I find the subject matter extremely interesting.
My favorite festivals are Beignet Fest and the Fried Chicken Festival. I love both of these festivals because they are smaller and tend to be less touristy and more authentic to New Orleans.
I chose Tulane because I wanted to go a university that placed emphasis on community service and had a relaxed and collaborative atmosphere.
