First-Year Experience

The First-Year Experience begins when you choose Tulane as your academic home.

By saying ‘yes’ to Tulane, you can access a wealth of dynamic experiences that connect you with your classmates, introduce you to your faculty, and ground you in your new home. During your first year, you will be welcomed into Tulane’s intellectual community by engaging in academic discussion with faculty and peers. You will learn of the many resources you can refer to for support and engagement. You will grow your social circle as you discover your community of people.

There is much to look forward to during your first year at Tulane. We are so glad you’re here.
