Enhanced academic center provides space, resources for Tulane student-athletes
As college athletes juggle their class, practice and game schedules, a dedicated place to study and get course work done is essential.
The Don and Lora Peters Academic Center, housed within the James W. Wilson Jr. Center, is a state-of-the-art facility that offers the space and resources to support Tulane student-athletes’ academic success.
The enhanced center was made possible through a $1 million gift from Don and Lora Peters to expand and renovate Tulane Athletics’ previous academic services center. The new center features private study rooms, which students can reserve using an app and their Splash card, a large multipurpose classroom for instruction, meetings and presentations, and new staff offices. The center also includes the Oremus Family Study Lounge, which has several seating options for studying, project space and tutoring, along with printers, outlets for devices and other technology.
The center is open Monday through Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 9 p.m., Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday from 2 p.m. to 9 p.m.
