17 reasons why you should attend Tulane
[As told by first-year Tulane University student Ellen Kurensky.]
It's officially college decision season. Students are hearing back from universities and making commitments. To many high school seniors, this is a stressful period to say the least. Colleges are sending out acceptance—and rejection— letters, peers are making decisions as to where they want to go, and it's the topic of everyone's conversations. It's a big deal. Decisions are being made regarding the next four years of your life. As May approaches, you may find yourself struggling to make a decision. I was in your position not long ago. But, I can now happily say, I love Tulane. I truly do. Tulane is without a doubt the place I'm supposed to be, and I'm proud to say I attend the university. If it's on your list, please strongly consider it. By now I'm sure you've heard how beautiful Tulane's campus is, how amazing New Orleans is, how the weather is always fantastic, and how most of our classes have low student-to-teacher ratios. And while I love Tulane for all those reasons, I love Tulane for all the unique and out of the ordinary experiences the university has to offer.
