“The quality of life at Tulane University”
April 2018CURRENT STUDENT
Uppers

I love the mix of cultures between the city of New Orleans and the campus of Tulane.

Downers

I do not think Tulane University has a strong math department

Comments

This school is a great choice if you are looking for a middle ground between a big state school and a small specialized school. You get to meet all different types of people in a city filled with so much culture.

Faculty to is amazing.

Opportunities to take classes with world class professors like James Carville.

Social scene cannot be beaten no matter what your interests.

HOT in August and September.

Tulane is located in the heart of Uptown New Orleans so there is so much to do and see! And even if you don't want to venture into the city, the campus is beautiful and there is always a ton of stuff going on!

Downers

I would have liked if there was more school spirit for the athletic department.

Comments

Take advantage of being in New Orleans, which is a fun and historically interesting city!

The business school is excellent. I feel the faculty is always available to help students and we use real world examples in Socratic seminar style classes to extract every piece of information out of the course possible. Even my accounting classes are discussion based.

Quality of Life

Going to school at Tulane in New Orleans is an experience unlike any other. The school is in an amazing city that continues to amaze me. The novelty of the city has not worn off after two years here and I discover something new every day.

Admissions

The application process is pretty straightforward... I believe that they have added more Tulane specific essays since I applied do to the overwhelming increase in applications.
