Did you just post the perfect shot of a streetcar rumbling down St. Charles Avenue? Are you a foodie seeking to chronicle the city’s best bites? Life in New Orleans seems designed for Instagram users. If you’re in need of some Insta-inspiration on or near campus, check out these spots.

With bright strands of Mardi Gras beads added to its branches every Carnival season, the Bead Tree behind Gibson Hall on the uptown campus is a Tulane landmark. Stand under the tree and point your lens upward to catch the full canopy effect. (Photos by Mary Cross)
NOLA Stands, a rainbow-hued community art installation produced by students in the Phyllis M. Taylor Center for Social Innovation and Design Thinking, has become a popular place to pose. Located next to Stern Hall, the piece is part of an open-air gallery of modern sculptures that stretches from Gibson Hall to Freret Street.
When you’re hitting the books with friends or taking a quick study break, show off your favorite pick-me-up alongside a book you can’t put down. The ideal spot is the patio at PJ’s Coffee on Willow Street.
Pack a picnic and spread out in the grass under Audubon Park's century-old oaks or get up close and personal with the wildlife wading around Bird Island.
