Thanksgiving Break Activities

Staying in New Orleans for the Thanksgiving Break? Don't worry. We've got you covered. Whether you're looking to cook your own Thanksgiving meal in the residence hall, visit a local restaurant to take advantage of their Thanksgiving menu, or explore the city, we've compiled the resources below to help you create some new Thanksgiving traditions here in the Big Easy.


Navigator E-Newsletters

We send “Navigator” electronic newsletters every two weeks from mid May until right before you move to campus in August and monthly during the academic year to your Tulane email account. You’ll find deadline reminders and practical guidance for new students to help you thrive in your first year. Check your Tulane email account for the first 2014 Navigator E-newsletter in mid May!


Orientation Guidebook

If you cannot attend a New Student orientation session, we will mail the 2014 New Student Orientation Guidebook to your permanent home address the second week of July. It will have instructions to help guide your preparation over the summer, reference information, and descriptions of beloved Tulane Traditions that all students enjoy. 



Join us for a webinar on Wednesday, July 16, 2014 at 7:00 p.m. CST where we will review the highlights of our summer New Student Orientation program. The webinar is FREE and designed for those students and families who were unable to attend New Student Orientation or need a refresher. The webinar will be led by two of our student Orientation Team Leaders.
