Favorite NOLA Restaurant: 


Favorite Spot on Campus: 

Business School Lobby (or, as I call it, the Blobby)

My “Only at Tulane” Moment: 

Playing basketball with famous actor Woody Harrelson, and then having him come to our improv show that night.

My “Only in New Orleans” Moment: 

Sleeping on the Mardi Gras parade route overnight to secure prime location for the Sunday parades. Even with the occasional downpour and leaky tent, we still had a great time and ended up with a hefty supply of the best beads.

My Best College Search Process Tip: 

Take good notes while doing your research and visits! I ignored my dad when he told me to do the same, but by the end of the process it gets really difficult to remember which schools had different clubs, events, housing situations, etc. Even if it seems obvious when you hear things about a specific school, it’ll be hugely beneficial when you’re working on applications and deciding on the school for you!
