Description

Tulane University is located in New Orleans, Louisiana in the U.S. and has a student body totaling more than 13,500.

Tulane is a member of the Association of American Universities, a group comprising the top 62 universities in the U.S. and Canada, and is classified by the Carnegie Foundation as an institution with very high research activity.

The history of Tulane University dates back to 1834 when it was founded as the Medical College of Louisiana. In 1847, it merged with the University of Louisiana and, following a donation by philanthropist Paul Tulane, was renamed Tulane University in 1884 and became a private university.

Today, it offers degrees across 10 different schools, with programs in architecture, business, law, liberal arts, medicine, public health and tropical medicine, the sciences and engineering, and social work.

With nearly 5,000 employees across all of its campuses, including 1,200 faculty members, Tulane is the largest private sector employee in New Orleans.

The uptown campus on St. Charles Avenue has been the main home of Tulane since 1894. Across its 110 acres are 92 buildings that house most of the university’s schools and colleges. It is also where Yulman Stadium, with a capacity of up to 30,000, is located. The stadium is home to the university’s Green Wave football team.

The School of Medicine, School of Social Work and School of Public Health and Tropical Medicine are downtown, while the Tulane National Primate Research Center is located in Covington, Louisiana. The School of Professional Advancement, based on the uptown campus, has a satellite campus in Jefferson Parish. The Freeman School of Business also runs programs at a satellite campus in Houston, Texas.

A number of libraries are scattered throughout the university. Its main library, Howard-Tilton Memorial Library, houses the Latin American Library and the Maxwell Music Library, as well as special collections that include the Hogan Jazz Archive, the Southeastern Architectural Archive, and rare books and manuscripts.

Notable Tulane alumni include Silicon Graphics, Netscape, and WebMD founder James Clark, co-founder of Yahoo! David Filo, and Pulitzer Prize-winning author John Kennedy Toole.

University is well located in one of the most interesting cities in the United States. New Orleans is full of cultural and ethnic diversity! The exchange international community is also super nice and I met a lot of incredible people. The only negative I would give is that some classes are a bit simple and don't challenge students academically quite enough.
