Featured Student Organizations
Students Organizing Against Racism (SOAR) - Students interested in anti-racism work can join SOAR. The purpose of the organization is to analyze and organize around issues of race and racism at Tulane, as well as to respond to specific problems on campus. Their guiding principle, based on the principles of their community partner People's Institute for Survival and Beyond (PISAB), is to be a multiracial, multi-ethnic, and humanistic organization dedicated to anti-racist organizing at an individual, cultural, and institutional level. SOAR also strives to forge a meaningful relationship between Tulane and the greater New Orleans community. 

Be The Match, Tulane University - Tulane's chapter of Be The Match was established for the purpose of educating people about blood cancers and disorders, fundraising for the research that the Be The Match National Bone Marrow Donor Program conducts, and recruiting ethnically diverse donors for the bone marrow registry. Be The Match also has multiple involvement and volunteer opportunities in the greater New Orleans community. 

Feminist Alliance of Students at Tulane (FAST) - Students who wish to learn more about feminism, be involved in feminist outreach work, and surround themselves with like-minded individuals can join FAST, an  alliance of students dedicated to intersectional feminism and the values that it upholds.

Staying Safe On Campus: Move-In, Orientation, and Classes
Tulane University is committed to keeping students, guests, staff, and faculty safe and healthy during the academic year. Check out Team NSLP's tips for staying well during your time on campus.

  • Mask up! Everyone should wear a mask or face covering of some kind when on Tulane's campus. These include medical-style masks, cloth masks, and scarves. You are welcome to wear a face shield as well, but you must pair it with a mask for maximum protection and prevention.
  • Physically distance. Always stay a minimum of six feet apart from other people, even when wearing a mask. 
  • Disinfect and sanitize frequently touched surfaces. These include doorknobs, faucets, credit/debit cards, phone screens, keys, headphones, and writing utensils.
  • Avoid large groups. Large gatherings, even of young and seemingly healthy people, are still breeding grounds for disease.
  • Listen to your body! This might seem strange coming from a university office but, if you're feeling unwell, don't go to class. Self-isolating and quarantining are incredibly important for preventing the spread of disease. 
  • Know your resources. Check out all of Campus Health's helpful tips and information before you come onto campus. Their website has tips for safe shared-living spaces and transportation too. 
  • Tune out misinformation. Scrolling on Facebook is a good way to pass the time, but it's not a good way to learn about COVID-19. Vet all sources properly, and if you don't know who to turn to, check out Campus Health, the CDC, and the WHO.
  • Not For Oneself, But For One's Own. Be a responsible adult and follow all protocols. They're in place to protect everyone, not to inconvenience you.
Oh, and of course WASH YOUR HANDS. Vigorously. For 20 seconds. With soap and warm water. You know the drill.
