Welcome to Tulane

SUPPORTING EACH OTHER

Sally Shi

“Tulane is definitely the place where I can call "home." Living alone in another country, I can hardly feel loneliness, because everyone in the community cares about you and respects you. Tulane is located in a cultural-rich city, so I can experience diversity and know people from different backgrounds. No one will feel isolated if you live in this city. Also, Tulane offers various majors for students to choose from, so everyone can find and do what they interested in. My biggest advice for new students is to be open to everything and do whatever they like. They are encouraged to explore different things on and off campus, and Tulane will always be there to support you.”

TOP TIPS FOR INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

GET INVOLVED - BE A PAL! 
The International Student Advisory Board (ISAB) coordinates a great program called TUPals. New international students who request a pal are paired with a current Tulane student who will help make the transition to Tulane a little easier. Visit the TUPals website to sign up!

BE AWARE OF YOUR SURROUNDINGS 
Tulane’s campus is unique. Campus culture and student safety may not be the same as your last school. Take time to really learn about this new place and get your bearings.

BUILD COMMUNITY 
Look for tips about what to ask landlords, what to watch out for, and what your resources are. There aren’t many apartment complexes close to campus, so you’ll probably have to talk to a lot of landlords before finding the place for you. It’s a headache, but will work out in the end! If you’re looking for a room or a roommate, reach out to the Tulane Transfers Facebook group. We can figure it out together.

STOP BY 6901 WILLOW STREET! 
You don’t have to be part of a school to study in that school. STEM majors study in the business school, language majors study in the architecture school. Branch out to find your perfect study spot.
