In addition to fostering an incredible classroom experience, Tulane ensures that a great deal of learning takes place outside of the classroom.
Tulane has more than 200 student organizations represented on campus. Examples include: student government, pre-professional and multicultural organizations, media groups, performance groups, service organizations, education organizations, honor societies, fraternities, sororities, club and intramural sports, military groups and political organizations. This extensive list of activities, paired with a medium-sized undergraduate student population of 6,000 students, allows all Tulane students the opportunity to get involved and make a meaningful difference on campus and in the community.
Our Office of Student Programs caters to all students' leadership development needs. The office helps Tulane students get the most out of the college experience by connecting them to relevant student organizations or helping them to start their own organizations. Other campus resources that students utilize for leadership development and organization include the Office of Multicultural Affairs, the Tulane Religious Life Center, and the LGBT Student Resource Center.
Our student-run campus programming organization is regarded for bringing some of the best musicians, artists, comedians and scholars onto campus. Rufus Wainwright, Snoop Dog, John Legend, Lil' Wayne, Modest Mouse, Juvenile, and Vampire Weekend have all recently performed on Tulane's campus. The list of recent Tulane guest speakers includes Barack Obama, Al Gore, Steve Jobs, Michael Oerh, Jeffery Sachs, Toni Morrison and Colin Powell.
