New Orleans…The Crescent City, The Big Easy, The City that Care Forgot. No other city can compete when it comes to culture, food, historic architecture, and general joie de vivre. Despite wars, imperial regimes, and devastating floods, New Orleans always comes back with a smile on its face. Whether it is due to the easy beat laid down more than three centuries ago or the world-class cuisine, visitors will truly learn what it means to laissez le bon temps rouler (“let the good times roll”). Any time of year, New Orleans is home to live music, vibrant local neighborhoods, shopping, and opulent nightlife.
Tulane University is intrinsically nestled into the heart of the city, with campuses located in both the bustling Central Business District as well as the historic Uptown Garden District. Students and visitors to Tulane quickly learn why we say Only in New Orleans, Only at Tulane. With a diverse student body, Tulane takes its cues from the city, offering a learning environment unlike anywhere else.
Tulane’s Uptown campus is the heart of the undergraduate experience. The 110-acre campus is encompassed with Southern charm and an abundance of green space, bold treescapes, and meandering walkways. Amongst the tradition, Tulane is constantly growing and expanding, seeking new ways to foster innovation and collaboration. The Lavin-Bernick Center for University Life, commonly known as the LBC, is a focal point for campus life with meeting rooms, dining options, and multiple retail spaces. Finished in 2019, the newly constructed Commons is a state-of-the-art 77,000 square foot dining facility hosting more than1,000 faculty, staff, and students daily.
The Downtown campus is home to graduate and research facilities including our world-class medical school. As one of the oldest medical schools in the United States, Tulane’s mission is to improve human health and foster healthy communities through discovery and translation of science into clinical practice and education. Following the devastation of Hurricane Katrina (in 2005), the Tulane School of Medicine has established itself as a vital component in the renewal of one of America’s greatest cities.
No matter the reason, there is never a bad time to visit us in The Big Easy. Whether it is a visit to the raucous Bourbon Street or a quiet ride on the oldest continuously operated streetcar line in the country, we know you will find something that brings a smile to your face and perhaps a little taste of life in the south. We look forward to seeing you in June; come find out firsthand what we mean by Only in New Orleans, Only at Tulane.
