Welcome to the Tulane Club of Acadiana, a constituent member of the Tulane Alumni Association (TAA)
With more than 1,800 local Tulane alumni and friends across the Acadiana area, this Club brings to the table a diverse blend of culture, heritage, language, music and, of course, food. Crawfish boils and "good times" are not annual events, but a way of life here.
The Club has traditionally arranged events around athletic events when Tulane comes to Lafayette, educational endeavors on occasions that professors and university officials visit the area, functions supporting and encouraging admission to Tulane University, and general social gatherings. Those in the past have included dinners at local restaurants with guest chefs, gathering at a local theater for a performance and cocktails, socials at an alumni's home, golf tournaments, and yes even crawfish boils when the Coaches come to town. Acadiana knows how to "pass a good time". In the planning stages for 2003 are a function downtown Lafayette on one of the monthly Art Walk weekends, small dinner gatherings at new restaurants in the area, monthly happy hours, a Tulane Night at the Abbey Theater in Abbeville, and the possibility of a private party at the newly renovated Lafayette Natural History Museum or at the new ULL museum in conjunction with professors from Tulane and Newcomb. These are all wonderful opportunities for you to become involved in Tulane. Also in the organizational phase is a Young Alumni group, through which the Club hopes to offer networking opportunities to new alumni moving to Acadiana. Feel free to visit the Acadiana Photo Archives to view candid shots of Tulanians "passing a good time".
Activities of the club are planned and organized by local alumni, with the assistance of the Tulane Office of Alumni Affairs. Your ideas and assistance are always welcome. Currently volunteers are needed to coordinate specific events, so please contact the club leaders, Sharon and St Paul Bourgeois if you would like to get involved. Also, consider joining the Acadiana ListServe, which will provide email notices to you about the details of upcoming events.
This page is an online bulletin board for local alumni to share information and ideas with each other. For example, if you are looking for a roommate, a new job, or new employee, or if you want to announce that a New Orleans band is coming to town, here's where to make your announcement.

The Albert H. “Sonny” Small, Jr. (A&S’79) Regional Challenge Grant for Tulane Alumni Residing in the DC, Virginia, Maryland Area
Tulane alumnus Albert H. “Sonny” Small, Jr. has announced a unique opportunity for alumni in the D.C., Virginia and Maryland area making a gift to the Tulane University Rebuilding Fund. Mr. Small will match all donations, dollar for dollar*, made to the Tulane University Rebuilding Fund from alumni donors in D.C., Virginia and Maryland and those who have not yet made a gift to the Tulane Rebuilding Fund - up to $500,000 total.
This Challenge allows these alumni to give to Tulane University knowing that the amount they give will be doubled, making the impact of their individual gifts even greater. The collective impact of new gifts from alumni and matching funds from this challenge grant will provide essential support for Tulane during its rebuilding process.
Donors from these areas need only make their gift to the Rebuilding Fund. Qualifying gifts will automatically be applied to the Albert H. “Sonny” Small, Jr. Challenge Grant.
*up to $10,000 per household
This unique award was established six years ago by Timothy Sykes (Tulane College ’03) to recognize and nurture talented individuals whose abilities and accomplishments may not be in traditional areas of endeavor. There are many ways to be “successful” in today's society and this award acknowledges young people with unique interests and passions. This does not preclude from consideration those with significant demonstrated success in the classroom or on the playing field - it simply seeks to broaden the definition of accomplishment in a university environment.
A candidate may self-nominate or be nominated by another member of the Tulane community by means of a statement (minimum 2 pages) that describes the individual’s talent/potential and supports that description with a listing of his/her related accomplishments or an example of the applicant’s work. Nominations are open to any member of the Tulane community – student, faculty, staff or young alumni. Applications for the award will be reviewed by a committee appointed by President Cowen.
Completed nominations are due by April 17, 2009 and may be submitted by email to email@example.com or by mailing them to Tulane University Office of Development, 6823 St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans, LA 70118. Please call 504.314.7633 with any questions.
