I just graduated and I now am an Admission Counselor here at Tulane. Our entire admission staff is relocating to Richmond, VA so we can keep our recruiting efforts intact, and show our relentless pride in Tulane. For now I would hope, for then benefit of our great school and city, that everyone STAY POSITIVE! I am not speaking from the University standpoint, I am just speaking personally. We need your help in this effort. Stay strong, we will rebuild, and when we do, in six months this will all seem like a bad dream.

I live on Maple, should I be sending my landlord rent for this month?

No do not pay rent. having an uninhabitable property breaks your lease. Dont pay rent anymore until you talk to your landlord AND resign your lease.

does anyone know if there has been looting in the uptown/university area?

Anonymous Anonymous said...

In a most recent article, the NY Times has reported looting at a Rite Aid between Carrolton and Oak, and at the Sav-a-Center on Tchoupitoulas by Napoleon. I believe the picture with the folklift on this site is the Uptown Rite Aid. At a personal level, I am less concerned with the looting of businesses than if there begins looting and squatting of homes, which seems to be not simply more likely, but more practical for individuals in desperate need of provisions and shelter.

If any of you are law students, I talked to the dean of the University of Arkansas (my alma mater) School of Law, and they're considering taking 2Ls and 3Ls as visiting students. Also, has anyone heard of any looting of homes around the Broadway/Freret area? I noticed in the photos they took the Rite-Aid at Carrollton and Oak, and I heard they got into the Shell station at Carrollton and St. Charles.

Bush said on CNN today that the city won't be put together again for a few years. Should we just transfer now? I mean I was going to be a starting freshman this year and I've wanted to go to Tulane since freshman year of HS, and I really don't want to go anywhere else, but I also don't want to screw up my future by sitting on my ass doing nothing while I wait for our school to be rebuilt. Any ideas/opinions/insight? Also, we were told to leave our bags in the dorms, does anyone know what kind of damage was done there? Will we ever see any of that again?

Also, does anyone know any way we can help? Would we be able to organize anything to go help rebuild our school/clean up?

Don't transfer!! Tulane needs you badly. First of all, Tulane is just an amazing experience. You will regret missing out on such a life-changing opportunity. Second of all, Tulane can't afford to lose so many students. They need us just as much as we need them. And I'm SURE Scott Cowen will find a way to make it up to us.

Hi, I am a non-traditional student at the University of Houston. Jay Gogue, our university president, announced that UH will accept students from New Orleans and other affected areas.

If you need help finding a place to live here, contact me at 713-728-8641. I will do my best to help.

Personally, we will accept two female students who want to pay some symbolic rent and do chores. Someone familiar with Kosher preferred but not necessity.
I am about to graduate, I go to school 3-4 days a week, so you'll have a ride to campus and a place to live. References a must! And I'll even help you if you decide to go to Rice U instead!

email,, or call me 713-728-8641.

To the girl thinking about transferring... Bush meant that it will take several years for New Orleans to completely recover. I mean think about that logically... doesn't that make sense? That means New Orleans to return to the city it was. That doesn't mean several years before we can take a couple of classes at the uptown campus. Brett is right... don't transfer. Do a semester somewhere else, but don't give up this quickly. And if it is just a semester you miss, that can be made up EASILY by taking a couple of extra hours per semester or a couple of summer classes. It's not that hard.

I am so scared about people looting my house! My entire family lives there, around tulane. Will we know if people do?

Transferring should be totally out of the question. Be it known that there are students out there whose parents pay for them to go to college, and therefore have little say in whether you can wait it out or not. This goes out to the 'rents: You can't take the Tulane experience away from incoming freshmen students. It just isn't fair. Just because a student can't be enrolled in school doesn't mean they spend the next few months wisely. For those of you who take loans for college, I'd strongly advise you to wait this one out. I have an undergraduate degree from Tulane and a Master's Degree as well and lived 6 of the best years of my life in New Orleans. Take it from me DO NOT TRANSFER...I'll repeat it DO NOT TRANSFER...It'll be the biggest mistake of your life. Oh yeah, and that pic of The Boot...I wouldn't worry; so long as Chad is alive The Boot will NEVER die.

Hey, I'm an incoming freshman at Tulane and i just wanted to say that i am NOT transferring and I will attend Tulane University if its the last thing i do! I am in disbelief that there are other freshman who are permenantly transferring to other colleges. I know that it sucks we're missing out on a typical freshman college experience, believe me, I'm home alone in NJ while all of my friends are off at their own colleges - with barely any clothes, mind you. But I'm sticking around for Tulane and I encourage any other freshman to do the same. Thanks..

I'm so glad those pics were taken AFTER the levees broke. Can anyone get a picture of Versailles Blvd (across Claiborne from Tulane, dead ends into Turchin Stadium), maybe even the block between Walmsley and Fountainbleau? Or if you have any info, post it here or email

New Orleans will recover.

Hi Brett
Yochanan Rivkin Here
I guess we won't be doing the Chabad AEPi Shabbat dinner this Friday night ;-).
Seriously, though, great job on this blog. It is inspiring to see the spirit that some of you guys are showing.
Check out my blog -

Can anyone looking at the pictures tell me whether it looks like there is just 2 or 3 feet of water on Broadway? We left the Torahs on the second floow fo the Chabad Hosue, and we are hoping that they will be OK.

If anyone is in the Atlanta area, we are going to have a prayer service at the Chabad House at Emory on Sunday, and we would love to see some Tulane studnets.

Word has it that Tulane School of Medicine will be moving their students to Baylor in Houston. A med student, who wisely fled Katrina to Houston, went to Baylor to inquire about doing an externship with them. Baylor informed him that the Tulane School of Medicine would be moving to Baylor.

i think it makes no sense to transfer. if the worst thing that happens to you after this hurricane is that you will graduate a semester later than you would before than you should consider yourself extremely lucky. i wouldn't worry about anything, after all, tulane has a lot more to lose than any of us do. everything will be fine.

Why is no one doing anything to help our wonderful city and all of its people? How could this happen and how can our government do so little to help its own citizens? This is the greatest city in the world and if nothing else, the public will not settle for its total destruction. We will rebuild.

Im glad to see so much support for Tulane, anyone who considers a transfer to another school is letting the storm, the looters, the chaos, and the situation beat them. Tulane needs us and we love Tulane and New Orleans too much to leave, reguardless of the situation at hand. besides, once the city is open and Mardi Gras season rolls around, its going to be the wildest party this city has ever seen. the floats may suck, but the atmosphere will be unmatched! Roll Wave!

I am only gonna be a sophomore at Tulane, but my first year experience there was definitely once in a lifetime. The students and the professors are wonderful. For all the incoming freshmen considering to transfer. DONT DO IT! Tulane is my home, have faith dont give up hope! President Cowen, your doing great!

I am the parent of two Tulane students. I just wanted to say hang in there and don't give up on your school! Tulane is a wonderful university and New Orleans was & will be a tremendous place to live. Don't rush too quickly to transfer - give Tulane a chance to keep most, if not all, of you together until they can re-open the campus. I promise you won't regret it.

everyone needs to relax and let Scott Cowen and his administrative team do their jobs!You must know that ALL of your concerns are their concerns and are being considered over and over again. Give them time to network. I think they are doing a remarkable job considering that they are homeless and have personal concerns and the needs of 8000 students to address

Unanswered question for Scott Cowen: What if the current school is providing less services, and likewise costs less? Plus there may be significant additional costs such as commuting, food, etc. Can we simply pay what we are getting now and receive a refund from Tulane. We need to take an additional job to pay for Tulane as it is.
