My favorite NOLA festival is...

NOLA Bulls. Similar to the Running of the Bulls in Spain only it's you, a thousand of your best friends, and the bulls are really burly women on roller blades chasing after you with wiffle ball bats.

My favorite spots in New Orleans are...

The Fly (Mississippi River), The Lakefront (Lake Pontchartrain), Ba Chi Canteen (Vietnamese Restaurant), City Park Trails (Mid City), Dat Dog (Frenchmen Street), Pizza Delicious (Bywater), the nearest Jimmy John's

I chose Tulane because...

of the seamless connection between social life and academic life. If I had one word to describe Tulane's campus, I would choose "active". There are more club meetings, guest speakers,free food-based events on a regular basis than you could imagine. While I am here to study and find a meaningful career, some of my most profound experiences have come from meeting people and cultivating relationships with friends of all ages from all around the world. I am only an hour away from home and it feels like a study abroad experience 10 months out of the year! I am eternally grateful for the different types of people that I encounter on a daily basis. Having people that both support and challenge my beliefs has helped me grow socially and find my true passions both academically and socially. People at Tulane are open to support whatever you want to pursue, so long as you are passionate about it.
