Destination Tulane (Spring):  All admitted students and their families are invited to attend Destination Tulane, a special program that gives students a comprehensive look at what life is like as a Tulane student. During each Destination Tulane day, students have the opportunity to:

  • Sit in on a class with Tulane professors and students
  • Meet current students along with other future members of the next incoming class
  • Tour the historic Tulane campus and eat lunch in the Tulane dining hall
  • Get answers to many questions regarding academics, financial aid and student life

Students may sign up for Destination Tulane through the Admitted Student Website.

Lunch with a Current Student (Spring): Admitted students are encouraged to have lunch with a current Tulane student during their visit. Students can request lunch with a current student here. We ask that students submit requests at least a week in advance. Lunches are held at 12pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays and at 12:30pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Although lunches are not guaranteed on Saturdays, we will do our best to accommodate all requests. Lunches are not offered during "Destination Tulane" dates, as the program already includes lunch with current students.
