The city of New Orleans is honestly amazing, and Tulane has a variety of people. If you aren't hoping to be social, it isn't the place for you. Greek life is important to some people but not all, just find who you enjoy spending time with and be ready to eat some good food in the city (campus food isn't that great).

Tulane University was not my first choice school when I was applying to undergraduate programs. After I got in, I toured the campus and fell in love with the school because of how nice the people are and how beautiful the city of New Orleans is. I have loved my experience here overall and wish I could do it all again. New Orleans is the best city in the country to go to school in and I am going to miss it so much.
I think that some of the buildings on campus could use an upgrade, but it seems like they are working on improving those right now.
Tulane University is a very challenging campus to live on as there is a constant demand of an individual to always be doing something, whether that be being studious or being social. There are good days and bad days, but never boring ones. The city is very beautiful and full of life, but I highly encourage prospective students to be more diligent in exploring it, because it is very easy to live in the Tulane bubble. Also, the lifestyle is very expensive.
Lack of diversity. Early general classes in the Math and Science departments are very difficult and not the best at providing a good transition between high school classes into college-level learning.
If you like to study hard and party harder Tulane is the perfect school for you. Expect to struggle to find the right balance between study and party because either you fail a class or you become a homebody, it'll take the first year but after that it's great.
The dining hall repeats the same options over and over again and the people at the school can be kind of catty. This place almost feels like high school if you hang out with the wrong people and don't escape the Tulane bubble.
