Hello Class of 2024, 

Happy October! The weather is turning brisker, the rain comes and goes, and - most importantly - Halloween is right there! Though this season and festivities are definitely going to be a little different, this sounds like a new chance to reimagine how to we celebrate and have enjoy ourselves. 

What things can we still do? What can we do that we never could have done before? We can use this mindset towards all of our future goals and grow together as the next generation of changemakers.

Things to note: 1) Take time to focus on your studies as midterms are closer than they appear. 2) Check your voter registration - your future self will thank you. Schedule when and how you will vote in the 2020 elections. 3) Spend time chatting with the people around you and check in on how you are truly feeling. 4) Keep up the good work; you're doing great!

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!
