I chose Tulane because...

The people! From my first tour, I immediately got the sense that Tulane genuinely cared about its students. The kind of person that this place attracts is someone who will both step out of their comfort zone on campus and encourage others to be themselves through their involvement as well. It is a truly remarkable and supportive environment, not to mention a fun place to be!

Favorite Tulane class/professor...

Comparative Politics with Erika Burton-Minard, or anything taught by Brian Horowitz!

My favorite NOLA festival is...

Hell Yes Fest! It's the Gulf South's largest comedy festival and I even got to perform in it with Tulane's sketch comedy group, Cat Mafia Comedy.

My favorite spots in New Orleans are...

Zotz, Rue de la Course, The French Market, Dat Dog on Freret, and Magazine St!
