Members of the Tulane community turned out to thank retiring Tulane University President Scott Cowen for his 16 years of a service in a tribute video that will air at the Great Scott! celebration on Friday (March 28). The video will play during the party on an outdoor monitor in between live tweets.
Use #GreatScott to send your tribute that will be displayed live at the party.
Great Scott!, a campus-wide celebration in honor of President Cowen featuring a six-float parade, food trucks, giveaways, fireworks and entertainment by Kermit Ruffins, is open to all members of the university community.
At the event on Friday from 4 to 7 p.m., there also will be stilt walkers, the Tulane University Marching Band, cheerleaders and the Shockwave dance team.
The parade begins at Freret and Broadway streets, rolls down Freret to McAlister Drive, and ends at the Lavin-Bernick Center Quad, where festivities will continue. In the event of inclement weather, the celebration will take place at Devlin Fieldhouse at Freret and McAlister.
