TULANE TALK

December 17, 2010

It’s been another wonderful year at Tulane University. As we approach our winter break I want to share with you this special holiday message from Marjorie and me. Its theme is how Tulane celebrates the spirit of the season year-round by giving to those in need -- from schoolchildren in New Orleans to the sick and injured in Haiti, Honduras, Tanzania and beyond.
