Hello Class of 2024, 

Welcome to September. What a first couple of weeks! Together, we experienced a new Tulane academic experience through virtual and physically-distanced in-person class models. We prepared for, and are now recovering from and assisting our neighbors with, Hurricane Laura and Marco. You all continued to forge new connections with each other: finding new friends, communities of care, and new opportunities for self-enrichment. 

All of this achieved while still practicing safe physical and social practices during COVID-19 through wearing masks, social distancing, and regular testing. It is quite remarkable how adaptive and creative the Tulane community can be during stressful and unpredictable times; and we could not be more grateful to consider you a part of our Tulane family.

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