"Goldman has been instrumental to my success and experience at Tulane; they’ve truly become a second family to me, and I know they always have my back no matter what.
In helping provide accommodations and navigating situations with professors, social stuff, internships, etc., they’ve removed hindrances and made it possible for me to the best version of myself at Tulane, and to take advantage of every opportunity without any fear or hesitation."

"Before I came to campus, I had already made contact with the Goldman center and Success Coaching, both of which truly made my transition to college seamless. While I do not go to Success Coaching anymore, I still talk to my coach on a more social level and we love to compare restaurants! Goldman gave me a space to be myself on campus. They were extremely accommodating, and Pat made me feel comfortable accepting that the way I learned was different, not necessarily good or bad. I love walking into the office and knowing everyone who works there, knowing they will work with me to help me succeed. The center goes above and beyond to help all students who need aid, and their empathy is palpable."
