Hello Class of 2024, 

Happy Womxn's History Month! In this e-newsletter, you'll see great opportunities featuring women, femme-identifying and non-binary leadership in stem, business, academia, health and wellness, art and activism, and more from across Tulane's campus. It's going to be a month filled with discovery, excitement, and achievement! In addition, at the bottom we talk about ways to prepare and succeed with midterms coming soon - if you're not already waist-deep in them now!

Now that we're in March, this is the perfect time to get a quick check-in on ourselves to see what we need to do to finish the semester strong. How are our grades looking? Our social life? Physical and mental health? What sustainable and possible changes would improve these areas? What opportunities or adventures can we try out this month?

This month, let's focus on finding a balance between ensuring our needs are met and finding ways to expand our skills, explore opportunities, and build stronger relationships in our community. All of this without overworking ourselves. Being involved on campus is great and can yield both a sense of belonging and accomplishment, but it means nothing if we're not showing up as our best selves or are being spread thin across our obligations. Remember, we're here rooting for you!

Questions? We are here to point you in the right direction. Contact our team by emailing orientation@tulane.edu. You'll also find helpful resources on our website, orientation.tulane.edu. Make sure to follow us on Instagram (@tulanenslp) to get to know our team and learn about resources for new students!
 
Roll Wave,
