It was so easy to get involved right after transferring here because the students and professors are some of the most welcoming and friendly people I’ve ever had the pleasure of knowing.
A self-proclaimed introvert, I am more involved at Tulane than I have been anywhere else, and I can honestly say that I’m finally at home!
I am also a Phi Theta Kappa member and a first-generation college student.
In my time here, I have come to know the most welcoming, dedicated, and supportive students, faculty, and staff that have made my transfer experience so simple and fun.
I decided to transfer because I wanted to attend a school where I could be myself and I could not have found a better place to do so.
I was attracted to Tulane because of the variety and flexibility that the school offers in the courses and majoring opportunities.
However, out of all the universities I applied to, Tulane University was the only university to treat me like a real prospective student.
What led me to Tulane was their amazing services and resources for LGBTQ students, including volunqueers, GSA, fun queer events, and there is even a section of the Health Center specifically for LGBTQ students.
The thought of transferring as a Junior was stressful at first, however the transition here at Tulane has been smooth and easy!
What led me to Tulane were my roots: I am proud to say I am a third generation Tulane student in my family.
I transferred to Tulane to study Political Science with a minor in Sociology. Before Tulane, I completed my Associate of Arts degree from Lone Star College in Cypress, Texas.
After seeing how involved the students are on campus and in the surrounding community, I knew that Tulane was going to be a good fit.
When I toured Tulane, I immediately felt a connection to the vibrant campus and culture around the city.
Tulane does a good job of blending the individualized attention of a smaller school with the myriad of opportunities available at a larger school, all while being in one of the greatest cities in the world.
I finally found a place that truly feels like home away from home.
Although, after visiting the campus and the city, I was in awe. It was not only about what the city and school had to offer but also the people who were living within it.
With this at hand, I looked for alternative options for my education and found that Tulane was the perfect fit.
