I chose Tulane because...

I love psychology and neuroscience, and Tulane has one of the best programs in the country, alongside being an incredible research institution. Beyond that, I had a lot of things I was looking for in a school, and Tulane had it all. An incredible Jewish community, thriving Greek life, vast study abroad opportunities, and amazing student life on and off campus. Now that I'm here, I know it was the best decision!

My favorite spots in New Orleans are...

Toast, Willa Jean, and Satsuma

My favorite NOLA festival is...

Voodoo Fest! Makes for an amazing Hallo-weekend

Favorite Tulane class/professor...

My favorite professor this year is my calculus professor. I was never a math kid in high school and signed up for calculus because I needed one semester of it for my major. However, being in my professor's class has made me enjoy learning math because he radiates a positive energy and excitement for math that makes me as ready to learn as he is to teach.

I'm passionate about...

Science Feminism Languages body positivity Mental Health
