NTC at New Student Orientation

New Student Orientation is a critical step for the incoming class of first-year students. Newcomb-Tulane College has been more involved in the program (partnering with Student Affairs) over the last few years — ensuring that students understand the academic opportunities and support system they have available to them. The college also brings over 200 faculty members into the two-day event to begin the crucial connection with new students. There are numerous programs and opportunities for students to interact with the college. Open house events for every department show students the support and opportunity they’ll have. An NTC orientation presentation and academic schools open houses introduce them to their new academic life. Reading Project workshops and Residential Faculty breakfasts give them face-to-face interactions with faculty. They also receive the first memento of their Tulane experience, beads!

“It is a pleasure to be among the first faculty to meet with these students, to learn about student goals for their time at Tulane and to help them realize the wealth of opportunities available to them.”

Amy George, NTC professor in the department of Spanish and Portuguese
