I chose Tulane because...

I chose Tulane because it was the perfect combination of everything I could have ever wanted! Tulane is located in New Orleans where I knew there would be culture and opportunity at every corner. I was eager to become a member of the Tulane community, largely because I knew that meant I'd be a part of a university that makes intentional efforts to be an active part of the city they live in. Another primary reason I chose Tulane was for the top tier and well-rounded academics. Unsure what I wanted to do with my life as a high school senior, I knew Tulane would provide me with the brightest professors and best opportunities no matter where my path took me.

Favorite Tulane class/professor...

I have no idea how Professor Mollye Demosthenidy makes health insurance so interesting! Prof. Demosthenidy is so fun and engaging and I am learning so much from her! If you are taking any Spanish class you MUST take Carolina Caballero. She is such an inspiration and got to know each and every one of us so well. Prof. Caballero will always be one of my favorite professors.

My favorite spots in New Orleans are...

Some of my favorite things to do are go to Audubon Park and The Fly! I also love going to listen to live music at Wednesdays at the Square or strolling down Magazine Street.

My favorite NOLA festival is...

Jazz Fest!
