    New Orleans is a great college town. There are always a million things to do, great night life, lots of festivals and its not very expensive.

    New Orleans in general is a great place to be because it has something for everyone. There is an excellent park across the street to go to, as well as the zoo, and the French Quarter isn't too far off, either. On campus, there are always Frisbee games going on and I feel like we have a lot of free concerts (for example, Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr played a free show here last month). Overall, the people here are pretty nice, and who doesn't love warm weather?

    I visited this campus in the summer of 2010, and fell in love with the city of New Orleans, and the campus of Tulane. The buildings are gorgeous, and the people that live in the city are amazing. Its like one huge family, everyone looks out for each other, even if you've never met before.

    Bursting at the seams with culture, New Orleans is a phenomenal city to live in. It's walkable, though the sidewalks are a little worse for wear Uptown near Tulane's campus. The streetcar will take you from campus to the French Quarter for $1.25 in usually less than an hour, and the ride itself can be pretty interesting. The Quarter is fantastic at any time of year, not just Mardi Gras. Actually, it's better at not Mardi Gras. Campus is directly across from Audubon Park, a great place for picnics or to go jogging, if you're so inclined. The area immediately around campus is chock full of interesting cafes and hangouts, and finding them is a little like a map-less treasure hunt - walk around, see what you find. Tulane itself is pretty great - campus is beautiful, housing isn't the worst I've seen, and the newer, more expensive buildings are actually quite nice. Majestic stone buildings lend to the grandeur, while the more modern architecture of the student center is refreshing after the collegiate quad. Grub is passable and the student body as a whole is friendly and diverse enough for anyone to find their niche. Finally, student life at Tulane is anything but boring. Between intramural sports, the Riley Rec center, Greek life, about a bazillion student organizations, and just hanging around with fellow students, being bored is pretty unlikely. Unless you want to be bored. That's cool too.
