Good Morning:

"Five Things You Should Know About Tulane University," will be the theme of this morning's Town Hall Meeting, which will convene at 11 a.m. in Dixon Hall. I am looking forward to sharing with you some thoughts about our accomplishments and future plans as well as responding to your questions. It is a perfect time to do this as we mark Tulane University's 175th anniversary.

The Town Hall Meeting is one of the many activities during this busy Homecoming Weekend. The Hullabaloo Homecoming auction and party is taking place this evening, as is a pep rally on the LBC Quad, featuring Coach Bob Toledo, the Homecoming Court, fireworks and a concert by Kermit Ruffins & the Barbeque Swingers.

For a list of all Homecoming activities, visit All these events and traditions, of course, lead up to the big game tomorrow against Marshall at 2:30 p.m. in the Louisiana Superdome. I like our chances to extend our winning streak and secure a Homecoming victory. Hope you will be cheering alongside me.

Have a great Homecoming Weekend,


Office of the President Emeritus, 1555 Poydras St, Suite 700, New Orleans, LA 70112 504-274-3638
