Tulane University Reviews
Review Tulane University
Tulane is an incredibly amazing place. It takes a certain person to fall in love with it. Everyone here seems to do everything- acing a test, going to an internship, working on a nonprofit project, then spending the entire night at a party or listening to music downtown, only to wake up early the next morning to run in the park or play on a sports team. You have to be excited and motivated by this high-speed lifestyle, as opposed to stressed or overwhelmed. People do it all- and well. It is a happy and dynamic student body, who is certainly going places. Most importantly, they are interested and passionate. The city is absolutely amazing... you can find anything there, especially when it comes to music! Academics are very strong, teachers, for the most part, push students very hard but positively reward hard work! Caliber differs by department for sure- with political science, English, and foreign language incredibly strong, and math less so. Unfortunately, Bruff (dining hall) sucks.
Tulane University is incredible. Besides being located quite perfectly in New Orleans, the school itself is academically challenging and vigorous. The school has a wonderful atmosphere, but my only complaint is towards some students. The majority of students are very wealthy and from the East Coast. I was hoping for more geographic diversity instead of simply hundreds of kids from New York and New Jersey. Regardless, I've met amazing people and professors at Tulane while living in one of the most unbelievable cities in the world. Lucky me!
Tulane University was the most wonderful decision we have ever made. Tulane includes the entire family in the experience. New Orleans is the most welcoming place we have ever been. My daughter graduated in May of 2016 with a Double Major Bachelors, with such joy and a great job waiting for her. Roll Wave!
