The Tulane campus buzzed with activity last week as residence hall move-in started and orientation sessions were held for first-year students. Events were retooled with physical distancing in mind to prevent the spread of COVID-19, but the welcoming Tulane spirit was always present throughout campus. Classes begin on Aug. 19.
