What Students Are Saying

4.03 Average Rating
It has academics like an ivy, the partying of a state school, an eastern feel, a southern locale, an urban city, and a suburban campus. Tulane and the city of New Orleans are places that I miss the second I leave them--they are my home. Coosing Tulane will always be regarded as the best decision I have ever made for myself.
