Lagniappe and Jazz at the Rat
Lagniappe is an old Creole word for “a little something extra.” The Lagniappe program adds “something extra” to the Tulane experience by introducing students to the unique music and culture of New Orleans. Lagniappe’s cornerstone event is a free concert each fall by legendary jazz musician and educator Ellis Marsalis. Lagniappe also presents Jazz at the Rat, a series of informal concerts at the LBC’s Der Rathskeller, familiarly known as “The Rat.” Jazz at the Rat features outstanding New Orleans musicians, often accompanied by students and faculty from Tulane’s Jazz Studies Program.

The Kylene and Bradley Beers Lecture
This series annually presents the Reading Project keynote lecture, which features the author of the book selected for the entering first-year class to read and discuss as part of their first assignment as students of Tulane University and Newcomb-Tulane College.

Homecoming/Parent-Family Weekend
The college brings together students, families, alumni, faculty, and staff at a brunch in Cudd Hall.

Forum Tulane
Forum Tulane is an initiative designed to foster interdisciplinary collaboration and intellectual exploration through an annual university-wide conversation around a common theme, incorporating event programming and resources from a wide variety of academic and student support units across the university.
