What Students Are Saying

4.03 Average Rating
The school has scholarships, try to get them.

Evidently all of the new freshmen this year want to live in Monroe and Sharp. You don't want to live in Monroe or Sharp. Really. You don't.

Everyone says this, but join a lot of clubs/activities. More than you can conceivably actually do. You can drop out of the ones you don't like much, but the only way to meet your soon-to-be-favorite people is to meet them. So try to.

Reilly (the gym) is probably nice, not that I would know. I hear they have ping pong.

If you have bike problems, there's a free bike help desk twice a week. They would love to help you fix your bike. They also rent bikes for cheap.

The library is actually a really great place to finish a paper/do work. You can try that if all else fails.

If a class is full but you need it, ask the professor if they will override you in. It works all the time.

You want Brent Koplitz for Chemistry. And you want Anthony Polizzi for math. These are facts.
Rebecca from Williamsburg, VA
This is a fantastic place to come if you are looking for a change in your life, especially if you want the last days of your youth to be the best ones. Regardless of whether you want to go to college only for parties or only to do work, this place will show you the right way to cross over, and foster the right skills to become a diverse, sociable but diligent adult.

Make sure you deal with Financial Aid right away. Also make sure to get all of your questions about financial aid answered because you generally have to complete most of the process by yourself.
Amber from Holland, MI
Get involved! There are so many clubs and organizations at Tulane to literally have something for everyone. I joined the club Ice Hockey team, played intramural sports, reffed intramural sports as a part-time job, and joined a fraternity. Tulane has everything from political clubs, to sports clubs, to environmental clubs, to acting and drama. Don't hesitate to go to the activities and clubs fair and sign up for some things you're interested in. Also, check out the Greek system. Keep an open mind, and go through the rush process. You don't have to join if you decide it's not for you, but going through rush is the best way to decide if you would like to join a Greek organization or not. Just keep your mind open to meeting new people, trying new things and getting involved in things that interest you.
Scott from Stillwater, MN
Keep track of time! Seriously, time management is key when there are so many things you want to do!
Katy from San Antonio, TX
Go to the activities fair because it's an easy way to get involved in one of our many clubs. If you're having trouble in a class, go see that professor during his/her office hours. The ERC is a student resource center where you can get free tutoring, so be sure and visit when you need help.
Samantha from Fort Worth, TX
Tour the school to make sure the campus has the right feel for you. Don't be afraid to take a risk and go far from home.
Lisa from Centennial, CO
Bring a bike. If it breaks, the Benevolent Society can help you out. Additionally, find and befriend someone with a car - motor vehicles, while generally unnecessary in a city like New Orleans (sidewalks, buses, streetcars, and cabs are all readily available), are always a good thing to have access to in emergencies.

Don't live in Sharpe or Monroe. Please heed me on this.

Try to pick your roommate. Though I have heard of random matches made in heaven, I've also heard some horror stories.

Financial Aid is, sorry to say, a nightmare. Become best friends with your adviser, don't be afraid to ask questions, and do your research. Read the Terms and Conditions, and find out what Financial Aid covers and doesn't cover.

You register for classes for a reason. Show up. Teachers notice when you're not there, even in the big lectures.

Try to bring some AP credits with you.

I'm beating a dead horse, but sign up for lots of activities. You never know which one will really strike your fancy or expose you to some awesome people. Additionally, being involved gives you more contacts, which are really valuable: knowing someone in the student employment office might help you out someday.
Cory from Spring, TX
Stay open--Tulane has something to teach everyone. Some learn to buckle down while others must learn to loosen up.
