My favorite NOLA festival is...

My favorite festivals have got to be tied between Voodoo Fest and Beignet Fest. I love Halloween more than any holiday and Voodoo Fest combines the spirit of Halloween with the music and overall culture of New Orleans. Beignet Fest makes me extremely happy as I spend the day eating various beignets from a line of New Orleans restaurants and food trucks!

My favorite spots in New Orleans are...

My favorite spots mostly revolve around food. I love the The High Hat Cafe, Toast and Cafe du Monde. However, I also love the grassy and scenic areas around New Orleans like The Fly which is a spot in Audobon Park that students frequent to look at the sunset over the river.

Favorite Tulane class/professor...

My favorite class so far has been Dinosaurs with Professor Agnew. This is just one example of the wide range of classes that Tulane has to offer. I love Dinosaurs and Prof. Agnew is the kindest teacher I've ever head and his lectures are a blast.

I chose Tulane because...

I chose Tulane because I fell in love with the city of New Orleans and the opportunities that Tulane could give me. I had my "a-ha" moment right outside of Flower Hall as I saw a future version of myself walking across Freret and on my way to my classes. I also loved that I could go in completely undecided with the resources like my academic advisor to help me fill my requirements when the time comes. I absolutely love it here.
