Tulane was founded in 1834 as the South’s second medical school, and the legacy of quality education and integration with our community and environment continues. Tulane, as one of the nation’s premier research institutions, continues to lead the way in how universities should engage with the world. 

At Tulane, as an undergraduate, you have opportunities galore. Opportunities to work closely with renown faculty. Opportunities to lead research. Opportunities to travel the globe for your study. Opportunities to create, to invent, to explore, to discover. And you will be part of a community of curious, smart students and faculty from around the world.

Forbes says that New Orleans is the nation’s biggest brain magnet. Entrepreneurs love it here. And while we adore the neighborhoods you’ve read about in all the tour guides, there’s a lot more to the city. We know: Last year, our students performed more than 780,000 hours of community service in New Orleans. Architecture students are helping rebuild our housing stock after Katrina. Education students are deeply connected to improving the city’s schools. Our medical students continue to fight the biggest public health crises of our times.

We want to do good – we were the first research institution to make community service a degree requirement – but when Tulanians participate in this giant post-Katrina civic revitalization project, we’re not doing it just for karma. 

We’re doing it because we live here. And you’ll find out pretty quickly when you arrive that Tulane is as much a part of New Orleans as New Orleans is a part of us.

Excited about sampling the local cuisine? You can use Tulane's meal plan at many restaurants near campus.

Located right across the street, Audubon Park is seen as an extension of campus. Students often go for walks/runs/bike rides on the 1.8 mile track that runs around the park. It's also a great place to catch some rays while studying.

The world-famous Rock N Bowl is an 18 lane bowling alley located minutes away from Tulane's campus. Popular even with non-bowlers, Rock N Bowl offers live music on various nights ranging from Cajun/Zydeco, Swing, Jazz, Blues, and many others.
