We send “Navigator” electronic newsletters every two weeks from early June until right before you move to campus in August. You’ll find deadline reminders and practical guidance for new students, including helpful advice from our Orientation student leaders. Check your Tulane e-mail account for the first 2013 Navigator E-newsletter in early June!
If you cannot attend a New Student orientation session during June, we will mail the 2013 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, highlights of Welcome Week activities for new students and descriptions of beloved Tulane Traditions that all students enjoy.
If you missed New Student Orientation in June or need a refresher, we encourage you to listen to our previously recorded webinar covering the highlights from New Student Orientation. Two of our Orientation Team Leaders reviewed important information covered during New Student Orientation and offered tips on preparing for your August arrival.
Phi Eta Sigma was founded in 1923 and chartered at Tulane in 1954 to encourage and recognize high scholastic achievement among members of the freshman classes. The organization, which has the slogan, "Knowledge is power," is the nation's oldest and largest honor society for first-year college and university students in all disciplines.
Students elected to membership include those who have a cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.5 on a 4.0 scale at the end of any first year, full-time curricular period, provided they have carried a normal academic load acceptable towards a bachelor's degree and rank in the upper 20% of their class.
In recognition of their academic achievements and contributions to the New Orleans community, members who maintain active membership in Phi Eta Sigma become eligible for a distinct honor cord and medallion at their graduation ceremony.
