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.
SATURDAY and SUNDAY 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
SATURDAY ONLY 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Also please remember:
The Line is available 24/7 to Tulane students. Call or Text The Line, 24/7, at 504-264-6074.
The Nurse Advice Line can answer questions and help you make decisions about whether to make an appointment, how to take self-care measures, how to renew prescriptions or answer medication questions and much more.
During Student Health Open Hours - 504-862-8121; After Student Health Hours - 855-487-0290.
Please let us know how we can best help you this weekend.
Dr. Dusty Porter
