Favorite NOLA Restaurant:

Jacques-Imos Café

Favorite Spot on Campus:

The Academic Quad when it is somewhat empty on a pretty spring afternoon.

My “Only at Tulane” Moment:

Attending the 2023 Cotton Bowl with thousands of other Tulane fans; and watching one of the greatest turn arounds in college football history, with Tulane scoring 16 points in the last four minutes to defeat USC and the Heisman winner.

My “Only in New Orleans” Moment:

Catching two hats from Sean Payton years apart when he rode in Mardi Gras parades after the 2006 and 2009 (Superbowl) seasons.

My Best College Search Process Tip:

Be genuine. Don’t try to say what you think we want to hear. Tell us about yourself.
