Favorite NOLA Restaurant:

Acme Oyster House has the best charbroiled oysters in the city!

Favorite Spot on Campus:

The Reily Center. The excellent weight room and fitness center is the best place to get a great workout in.

My “Only at Tulane” Moment:

When it was homecoming week at Tulane, I decided to eat in the Common's dining room for lunch with my coworkers and as soon as I stepped in the building I was greeted with a full jazz band playing music for the full hour while I was gathering some of the best food around made by our incredible dining staff.

My “Only in New Orleans” Moment:

I live right next to a beautiful church in between St. Charles Ave and Magazine Street and almost every weekend when I walk outside, I can see and hear the second line band and the families celebrating from the wedding strolling down my street! It's a beautiful sight to see and the bands are always great. I absolutely love it because this is something that is exclusive to the great city of New Orleans!

My Best College Search Process Tip:

Be sure to ask as many questions as possible to get a good picture of what the next four years can possibly look like for you. College admissions staff members are here for you and are more than happy to answer any questions that will help you make the best decision in your college search process.
