Advice from a Peer Mentor


Ann Kapustiak

"What I like about Tulane is the fact that the community of students is collectively very ambitious. Every student I have met on this campus is uniquely impressive and aspires to push the world in new and exciting directions. To be a student here feels like we are part of something greater. I know that I am walking past future Nobel Prize winners, government leaders, revolutionary artists, etc. I know that all the friends I have made, peers I have worked with, and people that I have met will be the movers and shakers of tomorrow. And if I could give one piece of advice to those freshmen seeking to join this group, I would say that the best way to survive here is to thrive here. Find your niche in this beautiful, diverse, unique group of people and you will go far."

"Tulane is a very special place. Not just because it is in New Orleans, or because it has amazing academics, but also because the people at this school are like no other. The sense of community can be felt the first time you step on campus. One of my favorite things is the many different ways you can get involved in school and meet people. There are so many clubs and different organizations to get involved in that there is somewhere for everyone and if you can’t find what you are looking for, you can make a club! When there are so many ways to get involved, I would suggest talking to other students about what their involved in, look into the different options and do a trial run of a couple different things before whittling down the few clubs or other activities with which you want to spend your time."
