Favorite NOLA Restaurant: 

Olde Nola Cookery. The Cajun fries are a game changer!

Favorite Spot on Campus: 

Sitting under the large tree in front of Alcee Fortier Hall.

My “Only at Tulane” Moment: 

Tulane students appreciate the rigor of being academically challenged while fostering collaborative learning and giving back to the local community. The culture, energy, and southern hospitality of New Orleans flows through like the heartbeat of Tulane University.

My “Only in New Orleans” Moment: 

Two days after moving into my first New Orleans apartment, my living room became filled with the sound of live music. My neighbor's band performs monthly free shows from their porch to bring the community together.

My Best College Search Process Tip: 

 Take the time to think about what YOU want and need in a school. There are plenty of “good schools” but figuring out what you need to be academically challenged, pushed to grow and most importantly, happy will make your college search a little easier.
