Welcome First-Year Women
We are so excited to welcome a new class of women students to Tulane. At the Newcomb College Institute, we offer a women-focused experience on a co-educational campus. Throughout your four years as Tulane, you’ll have the opportunity to participate with NCI through one of our many student organizations, sponsored internships, or featured events with prominent women speakers.
Now, as you begin your college experience, there are lots of ways for you to get involved and meet other students through the Newcomb College Institute:
- Big Sister/Little Sister Pinning Ceremony
(Sunday, August 26, 7:30 pm at Dixon Hall): Experience your first Newcomb tradition. Email email@example.com by July 26 to get matched with an upper-class female student that you can communicate with over the summer and get your questions about campus life answered. Then meet her at the annual pinning ceremony!
