Hey y’all! My name is Susan Worley (she/her) and I’m a rising junior originally from Petal, Mississippi. Here at Tulane, I’m majoring in both Sociology and Social Policy & Practice and minoring in Latin American Studies. I spend a lot of my time in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions in Gibson Hall- I work not only as one of your CAST Fellows but also as a tour guide, admissions intern, and social media marketing intern! I’m also involved in the Newcomb Scholars Honors Cohort, I’m a Membership Chair for our Pre-Law Fraternity, I serve as the Treasurer of Tulane Alternative Breaks, and I participate in social Greek life! I can’t wait to meet all of you this summer. Congratulations on your acceptance into the class of 2026, and Roll Wave!
Hi, y’all! My name is Lauren Zabell, and I am from Long Island, New York. I am a rising junior here at Tulane, and I am majoring in marketing and management on the entrepreneurship track. A community that I am a part of here on campus is the New Student Leadership Program. I currently serve as a Board of Director for NSLP. My role is to plan orientation for the new incoming students! When I am not busy with classes and club activities, I love to explore the city of New Orleans. Whether going to a nearby coffee shop to do work or exploring magazine street with my friends, I love seeing all the beauty of New Orleans.
Hello! My name is Kalil Mosquera. I am a sophomore from Atlanta, Georgia. I am majoring in Public Health with the SLAM Minor. Some of my on campus involvements include being a Community Service Fellow, Resident Advisor, Freshman Leadership Program Coordinator, and I also work at the Reily Recreation Center for Member Services. One of my favorite things about Tulane is the close-knit community here, I love how the campus is centralized with so much in walking distance. Outside of school, I enjoy exploring new restaurants around the city with my friends.
Hi! My name is Ohad Tessler and I’m from Houston. I am a rising sophomore double majoring in Psychology and Finance. On campus, I’m mainly involved in Chabad, one of the centers for Jewish life, and the service fraternity Alpha Phi Omega. When not doing school stuff, I can be found at Reily playing basketball with friends or at Audubon appreciating nature while playing guitar. My favorite part about Tulane is definitely the variety of things offered on campus and around it. When you come here, I highly recommend grabbing a quick dinner at Dat Dog just down Freret. Welcome Home and I’m ecstatic to help you with this amazing transition very soon!
Hi everyone! My name is Melody and I’m a rising senior studying political science and philosophy on the pre-law track from San Diego, CA. I chose Tulane because I wanted to feel at home and a part of the college community that I instantly felt when I first stepped foot on Tulane’s campus. I can confidently say that my past few years at Tulane have delivered and encompassed that feeling and given me so much more. Besides being a tour guide on campus, I'm also involved in social Greek life, our Undergraduate Student Government, and the pre-law fraternity. When I’m not on campus I love walking my friends’ dogs through Audubon Park, exploring the many districts New Orleans has to offer, and finding new restaurants to frequent.

I’m majoring in Cellular and Molecular Biology and Political Science, focusing on International Relations, with a minor in Italian while on the pre-medical track. Outside of being one of your CAST fellows this summer, I work as an admissions intern with the Tulane Office of Undergraduate Admissions and am involved with Green Wave Ambassadors, or our campus tour guide organization. Additionally, I’m involved with public health research through the Newcomb Institute, am a part of two of our pre-professional fraternities on campus, and studied abroad in Italy in the fall of 2021. I’m so excited to meet all of you this summer, and welcome to Tulane!
