The $63,000 question:
what makes tulane worth it?

heroLanding

HELLO,
DALAI!
THE CHANCE TO MEET WORLD LEADERS. HOT ARTISTS, MOVERS AND SHAKERS. PLUS, THE OCCASIONAL MIGHTY MONK.

RESEARCH TAKES US
AROUND THE WORLD
AND ACROSS THE STREET.


Our undergrads research wrens in Australia, architecture in Italy, antibiotic resistance in Tulane's facilities, and everything in between.

I'VE SEEN RITUALS, FESTIVALS, CULTURES, HOLIDAYS, PEOPLE, MUSIC, AND FOOD THAT NONE OF MY FRIENDS BACK HOME COULD EVEN IMAGINE.

New Orleans is frequently called the northernmost Caribbean city. Tulane is the closest you can get to studying abroad without a passport.

What a sweet ride! It's so easy to get around in the Big Easy. The Saint Charles Streetcar zips past Tulane 100 Times a day. And with a Jazzy Pass, it's the cheapest sweet ride around. What a deal!

About a third of Tulane students study or do research abroad. But their favorite place is right here in NOLA – especially during Mardi Gras.

I see my friends' pictures from other schools and think, yeah, we do that here. Then i look at my pictures and go, but this doesn't happen anywhere else.

One Kickass Freshman Orientation. Swamp tours. Art in City Park. Bowling at a certified landmark. And more jambalaya than a plate should hold. Welcome to Tulane's NOLA Experience.
Priceless.

Tulane is more than an education; it's a way of life.

You never know who you might meet at Tulane.

U.S. Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton. Brad Pitt. Ellen DeGeneres. Snoop Dog. Superbowl champs, Saints quarterback Drew Brees and head coach Sean Payton. Anderson Cooper. Janet Reno. Ralph Nader. Yahoo founder, David Filo! And Ruth Benerito, who invented no-iron cotton. Even Hanson. (Yes, the boy band!) Tulane is a must-stop in a city that will never stop amazing you.

It takes grit, determination, and a heck of a lot of chutzpah to make it at Tulane. But after four years, our graduates have the chops to compete in any industry, tackle any problem, solve any riddle.

They prove it daily at places like NBC, Sirius Radio, Google, Delta, Bloomberg, The CDC and the U.S. State Department. They're biochemists, doctors, lawyers, music execs, teachers, film producers, actors. The list goes on. Our parting advice to them: Keep on Rocking.

Only at Tulane. Only in New Orleans.

Sure, professors at other places invite students to their homes. But at Tulane, one of our professors happens to be James Carville, American political commentator, media personality, and lead strategist for Bill Clinton's presidential campaign.

And when a guy like Carville invites you to his house—it’s to meet a real-life international man of mystery, Richard Thompson. Carville’s “Culture of Politics” class sat down with the British Secret Intelligence Service’s former Afghanistan station chief for an intimate discussion. Tea, of course, was served.

George Wilde came to Tulane to study philosophy. As a musician, though, he wasted no time diving into New Orleans' thriving musical culture. He interned at Roots of Music and Preservation Hall. And he helped launch the Trombone Shorty Academy, mentoring the next gen of NOLA musicians. George's story may be extraordinary, but it's not unusual. That's just the way Tulanians rouler.

Read George's blog about the Trombone Shorty Academy.

BTW — George's internship with Preservation Hall turned into a paying gig. Only at Tulane. Only in New Orleans.

Build up the economy—one small business at a time.

Emphasis on SMALL. Students in the Tulane School of Architecture's UrbanBuild program develop, design, and build tiny, mobile "pods" that help local retailers set up shop. It’s quick, affordable, and easy. We’re changing the way small business works—and moves. We call that real solutions for real people.

Why wait until graduation to do what’s right? Haley Burns was barely a sophomore when she founded Fund 17, a student-run micro-financing organization to serve low-income entrepreneurs. Recently, Fund 17 won a $10,000 NewDay Challenge grant. Now they can expand their operations. And do more that matters for real people.

Who knew getting healthy could be so delicious? We teach students and the community the tips, tricks, and tools they need to heal themselves from the inside out. High blood pressure? Cardiac disease? Diabetes? What else would you expect from a university known for public health in a city known for food?

Putting theory into practice—that's what Tulanians do.

For example, students work with our Prevention Research Center to help make it easier and safer for people to get around NOLA on bike, on foot, or on public transportation.
