The word 'unique' is often used to describe Tulane. One of Tulane's defining characteristics is its location in New Orleans, and that distinction is more significant now than ever before.
Tulane University has a long history as an exceptional private university. Our institution is committed to providing an outstanding undergraduate educational experience, one that provides opportunities both in and outside of the classroom. Tulane undergraduates are taught by the university's premier faculty beginning the first semester of their freshman year. When this type of high quality education is combined with the opportunity to be involved in the largest urban renewal project ever undertaken in our country, the result is a college experience found Only at Tulane, Only in New Orleans.
