Favorite NOLA Restaurant:

It depends on what I'm in the mood for, but lately it has been either Mint Modern or Ba Chi Canteen.

Favorite Spot on Campus:

Warren Quad where I am able to set my hammock up in the trees.

My “Only at Tulane” Moment:

One of my International Development courses had 6 people in the class, so the professor invited us on a field trip to visit Grand Isle (southern Louisiana). Along the way he gave us a tour of so many different places and even treated us to lunch! We got to stop by the beach and even in November it wasn't too bad. Overall such a fun trip and it really shows how much Tulane faculty try to connect with their students in and out of the classroom.

My “Only in New Orleans” Moment:

Dancing in the rain during Endymion (one of the many Mardi Gras krewes) with my friends freshman year and then catching hypothermia due to being soaking wet in the cold. Recovered quickly and still made it to the parades the next day. Mardi Gras is a marathon, not a sprint!

My Best College Search Process Tip:

When you are visiting campuses, try to find the ones where you could easily call home one day and see yourself going to your potential dorm or grabbing a meal at the dining hall. Figure out where you could see yourself spending the most time on campus and that will really tell you if that university is right or wrong for you. Inevitably you will have that gut feeling that "this is home," so listen to it, your gut is often right more times than not.
