I believe so far I have had an okay experience with Tulane. The only problem is, Tulane is very selfish when it comes to helping students who need financial aid. They have a huge endowment yet, they just want to keep all that money to themselves. They don't care what the persons background is, they could be homeless and still expected to pay 70 grand. Tulane has a great education system but horrible hospitably when it comes to assistants to families in need. Tulane charges so much in tuition and fees yet, the dorms are absolutely horrendous. They're dirty and need maintenance. The only question I wonder is where all my money is going because it's not to housing or food or to the students.
As one of very few students who is not an alcoholic, I hate it here. There is absolutely nothing to do that does not involve drunken parties. Many of the professors in certain departments do not care at all and simply do not teach the course material. No matter how involved you get, if you're an individual or at all different from the norm, you won't find friends here because everyone is the same.
Tulane provides many majors and minors. Work study they place students in a local business's that the student wants to pursue as their career.
What I want to change is they don't provide on-campus housing for transfer students. The students are forced to rent from slumlords. These houses are filthy, with cockroaches and other bugs.

There aren't words to explain Tulane; it truly is the most unique place in the world and I can honestly say I couldn't have chosen a better place. The social scene is amazing, absolutely nothing is exclusive and there is ALWAYS something to do. While there is always something to do there is also no pressure to go out if that isn't your style. Everything about this place is one-of-a-kind and I cannot imagine what I would feel like somewhere else. Tulane is special in a way that can't be put into words. You just have to feel it.
Tulane has a variety of options for research, community service, and student organizations. There’s plenty to do both on and off campus.
Tulane is awesome and an absolute party school. Kids go out on average 4 times a week and every day during syllabus week. It is normal to see the boot crowded during finals week as well.
Tulane is a great experience overall. New Orleans is unlike anywhere else in the U.S. and you can go out literally any night of the week. The party scene is unmatched and the academic prestige is a plus. However, the food is absolutely horrendous and there are quite a few professors that straight up can barely speak English. It is also way too expensive and is increasing by the year. If you're looking for a unique experience and can afford it, I would recommend going here but beware the downsides.
very fun and hardworking students... play hard study hard is the unofficial motto... campus is nice and there's always something to do. if you're bored in New Orleans, it definitely isn't for you then.
Tulane is a wonderful school full of people who love to party but also to apply themselves academically. They are lacking in diversity and food, and the campus can seem a bit small at times, but there is always something to do either on campus or downtown.
Tulane University is where wealthy children from California and the East coast go to party. Tulane's student body consists of mainly liberal arts and business majors. Tulane's science and engineering departments are lacking when compared to other schools. Also, Tulane is way to expensive. The campus is in the middle of a congested, small part of the city. You won't find much hiking around Tulane. And when people tell you that New Orleans is a great college city, don't listen to them. New Orleans is a city full of poverty, crime, and disease. If you don't believe me, look at the statistics. The good thing about Tulane is that the weather is nice. Another good thing is that if you go to Tulane you can network with lots of rich people.
Going to Tulane University was a fantastic experience. The in and with New Orleans for 4 years... was unique in the best possible way. You can never be bored or stop learning new things in a city like that. The school itself was challenging, beautiful and rewarding. Make sure you go on a tour if you can, the place is immaculate. It's a rare find when you can go to a school and your friends and family are entertained at the Graduation ceremony. Tulane has everything you could want in a small-ish manageable package.
Tulane has been one of the greatest experiences of my life. I have learned so much not just academically, but in all aspects. The people here are great, the professors care about you and Tulane provides every resource possible to make sure that everyone has a safe and wonderful time at the university.
Tulane has a great overall atmosphere. However, the majority of students are very affluent and often lack perspective. Similarly, the faculty in charge of financial aid can be less-than understanding of lower-middle class families.
The costs far outweigh any benefits through relationships that you make with your time here. Most of the faculty administration are tenured, jaded, and riding this out until their retirement. Occasionally you might get a good professor who still cares about teaching, but they do not stay at the school long. The campus has multiple security contracts and a private police department, yet students are assaulted or mugged on a near weekly basis. Then on top of all that unless you go along with the popular, or the professor's politics you will be ostracized, bullied, and will probably fail out of your classes.
I am going to begin at Tulane University in January as a spring scholar. I am very excited to begin my life at this school. From the moment I visited I knew this school was the one from me.
I am a rising junior at Tulane and thus far have had best two years of my life. I am in love with the academics, campus, and just general attitude throughout the university. I have no complaints and have held very high regard for the university and will most likely continue to do so for the next two years and years following as an alumni.
Professors here are excellent and the learning environment is very good. I have always felt safe on campus - it is well lit and the police patrol quite often.

So far, this place has been better than anything I could imagine or expect in a college experience. It's my summer going into sophomore year and I just can't wait to get back to school. There is a crowd for everyone, a major for everyone (except if you're in math), incredible staff, and a beautiful campus. Oh, and it's a f******* blast.
Tulane University gave me the best freshman year I could've imagined. The university offers incredible professors and courses that allow you to test out your interests and explore them without being forced to commit to an area before you know you are sure. More than that, the social atmosphere is inviting and offers friends and groups for every kind of person. The city of New Orleans provides an amazing cultural and diverse setting for whatever you want to pursue.
Tulane is an amazing school and the location makes it prime. It's close enough to New Orleans to be able to experience the city but far enough for it to be safe. Only issues is that a lot of the facilities (housing) are disgusting, but Tulane is currently working to fix that.
