Presidential Photo Challenge

President Fitts issues an unusual challenge for all first-year students each year. As they spend their first month exploring Tulane and New Orleans, they take photos of the most intriguing places and send it to the president. The submissions are displayed here and President Fitts chooses five that are the most memorable and unique. The lucky photographers and two of their friends will be treated to a meal at Commander's Palace with the president.
