BA, Tulane University
One of the best views of the entire city can be found on the sixth floor of the library.
Everyone says this about their school, but Tulane is incredibly beautiful. The campus is filled with giant oak trees, jasmine vines, and azaleas. Something about this environment always inspired and made me happy as I was walking to class.
Marching with the Krewe of Red Beans the day before Mardi Gras. This parade is dedicated entirely to red beans, so everyone creates these really elaborate costumes crafted entirely out of beans! Besides being hilarious and fun, it’s also a beautiful expression of the creativity and pride that New Orleanians feel for their city.
Going to college is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to your adult life. This moment might feel incredibly important right now, but in the long run it’s just a moment, so focus on the positives, have fun, and be yourself.
