A member of the ‘Southern Ivy League,’ Tulane University is a private research institution known for its high academic standards and rigorous core curriculum. While students are known for their propensity to revel in the lively city that surrounds them as well as in the ubiquitous Greek system, they are some of the country’s brightest, and find that Tulane’s academic standards challenge them to fulfill their potential. In August 2005, Hurricane Katrina ravaged the Gulf Coast and forced Tulane to close its doors for only the second time in its history. Students came back however, and continue to do so; a testament to the quality of the university and the resilience of the city. While Tulane is home to 10 schools and colleges, the university is unique in that all undergraduates are placed in Newcomb-Tulane College, which serves as an administrative center for all aspects of undergraduate life at Tulane.
