Special Weekend Hours for Tulane Students Seeking Services/Guidance

March 13, 2020

Dear Tulane Student Community,
We realize the past 48-72 hours have been stressful and challenging for all of you as Tulane, the nation and the world have navigated the changes associated with COVID-19. In addition, the unexpected death of one of our students last evening may have magnified normal feelings of uncertainty and anxiousness. We want you to know we realize you are moving through an unprecedented set of circumstances and we are here to support you.

This afternoon from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m., the Undergraduate Student Government and Student Affairs staff will be hosting a gathering space for any students who have questions about the remainder of the term, need assistance, or have questions. This will be held in the LBC on the Mezzanine.

The Division of Student Affairs and Newcomb-Tulane College will be providing weekend hours in the following offices for any student who has a question, is in need of assistance, or just wants to talk. You do not need an appointment; simply walk in.
