One of the most enduring Tulane ceremonies takes place each year on the afternoon of Move-In Day. This year, the Class of 2017 will be welcomed into the Tulane community with an address from University President Scott Cowen. Following a meeting with their Orientation Coordinators, new students will proceed to the auditorium together. The event will be broadcast live to various locations around campus for parents and other guests to watch as the new class is inducted.
The Reily Student Recreation Center will welcome new students with a variety of events and interactive games. Enjoy free food, live music, sports and fitness demonstrations. There will be many opportunities to win free stuff.
During the first two days of classes, new students can take advantage of the Navigation Station under Stern Hall in the center of campus. Knowledgeable upperclass Orientation Coordinators will offer campus maps, directions to classes, details about Welcome Week events and a candy treat! Stop by!
The New Student Welcome is a great event put on for students, by students. Come hear about opportunities for involvement, important Tulane values and traditions and our Green Wave athletic teams.
“One Night Out” is a special performance by InterACT, a troupe of college students from California State Long Beach. Using humorous and provocative skits, powerful monologues and interactive dialogue, the performers will help you gain an understanding of domestic violence and sexual assault; warning signs of abusive relationships and interventions to prevent assaults. We’ll review Tulane campus resources and ways to promote a culture of healthy relationships on campus.
Join the Center for Wellness and Health Promotion and several hundred of your fellow classmates in a casual, party-like atmosphere. Soirée is a hands-on program where you enjoy food and fun while learning great tips for getting ready, going out, getting back and enjoying New Orleans.
