Tulane University Reviews
While visiting everyone was very friendly and made for an incredible stay. I think for people planning to apply, there is a good chance they will get a clear idea if they visit. My visit showed me a lot about the university and made it clear to me that this was the perfect fit for me! I am so excited to be attending the school, many of the people I have met that will be in my class are very friendly and incredibly intelligent. There is also a lot of girls which is so cool! I love the liberal and open environment of the campus!
There have been many changes in the program focus and organizational changes. They are cancelling the Houston based program which reduces flexibility for Houston students and confidence in the alumni association and future accessibility to continued education. The team in Houston has been great and very responsive, but have had multiple issues getting responses and help from the New Orleans campus financial aid office and business school information.
The best thing about Tulane for me is the flexibility. Teachers and administrators will work really hard to help you accomplish your goals, even if they're out of the ordinary. With about 7000 undergrads (and growing) it's a good size and most classes are pretty small, allowing you to build relationships with your professors. It's also flexible in the sense that you can be as involved on campus and school-spirited as you like or you can run around exploring the city and both are completely acceptable. I tend to spend my time off campus because New Orleans has a fantastic, youthful energy and great alternative culture. Because the student body is so varied and people are off doing their own thing, sometimes it feels apathetic. For instance there has been a movement going on campus since 2009 to get fair pay for the workers in the dining hall, but the organizers have had a really hard time getting any kind of solidarity from the students.
