Professor Goldstein - Jewish Studies (He invites his classes to his house for bagels every semester!)
Jazz Fest!!!!!! Music & food... need I say more?
1) The Fly- just on the opposite side of the park is a cool spot to hang with friends right by the river 2) St. James Cheese- go for lunch after your campus visit!!
Tulane offers the best of both worlds, a beautiful green campus surrounded by an incredibly unique city... what more could you ask for?! I have the "campus feel" every day when I walk to class, grab lunch with friends, and stop by my professors' office, but can also walk just blocks off campus to explore a new restaurant or festival. There is never a dull moment here!
