President’s Convocation

One of the most enduring Tulane ceremonies taking place each year during Fall Welcome is the President's Convocation for new students. This year, the Class of 2018 will be welcomed into the Tulane community with an address from the University President. Following a meeting with their Orientation Coordinators, new students will proceed to the auditorium together. The event will be broadcast live to various locations around campus for parents and other guests to watch as the new class is inducted.


One Night Out

“One Night Out” is a special performance by InterACT, a troupe of college students from California State Long Beach. Using humorous and provocative skits, powerful monologues and interactive dialogue, the performers will help you gain an understanding of domestic violence and sexual assault; warning signs of abusive relationships and interventions to prevent assaults. We’ll review Tulane campus resources and ways to promote a culture of healthy relationships on campus.
