Tulane Athletics announced this week the launch of Wave 100 — an initiative to grow its Green Wave Club membership to 5,000 by the end of 2018 and to tell the story of Green Wave student-athletes, coaches and staff.

Wave 100 is a worldwide campaign that seeks the financial commitment of Tulane alumni and supporters with a gift of $100 or more to the Green Wave Club. Through domestic and international alumni chapters, Tulane aims to increase Green Wave Club membership to propel the future success of athletics programs. Supporters can follow the progress of the effort by location on the Green Wave Club website.

“Tulane is a global university with more than 150,000 living alumni,” said athletic director Troy Dannen. “We are seeking the support from alumni throughout the country and the world to help support our athletics programs and drive our mission to provide our student-athletes and staff with opportunities for competitive success and personal growth.”

“It means a lot to have support from all over the country.”

In the past year, Tulane student-athletes have compiled better than a 3.0 cumulative GPA, collected 219 conference, regional and national awards for athletics and academic success, and totaled more than 1,000 community service hours around New Orleans. Tulane student-athletes are making an impact across the entire landscape of intercollegiate athletics — in the classroom, in competition and in the community.

As Tulane strives to develop the best and brightest student-athletes from around the world, the Wave 100 movement will ensure they and the university staff continue to receive the resources needed to succeed on and off the field of competition, now and in the future.

“It means a lot to have support from all over the country,” said Ellie Vincent, a Tulane student-athlete. “I think it is incredible how vast the network is of Tulane alumni and fans. It makes being a Tulane student truly global since we come from all over the country and various parts of the world.”
