A Dry Uptown

The person who wrote the description of uptown sent me the below pics. Clearly, uptown will need only a little rebuilding, as the damage is just downed trees and debris. Apparently, this whole area faired very well.

I was thinking that once we get back to school, we should do a clothing drive. I know that I have had to go shopping for new clothes because I left most of my clothes in the dorm thinking we would return in week. Therefore I only took about a weeks worth with me. I'm sure others have done the same, and when we return to school will have more clothes than we need. I have no problem organizing and running this, but I would need help and support! Just let me know what yall think!...You can email me at

great pictures. it seems like the water has receeded a lot in the past few days, which is great because the water damage will not be as bad as most of the city. its killing me not being able to go down there right now and help cleaning up, but i realize that we should let the military and fema do their work right now. there will be a time for all of us to come down and help rebuild the city that we love, but right now we should let the people who have the expertise and resources start the process.

i'd love to see some pictures of the area between willow and claiborne on broadway because it seemed like the water was higher there than it was around st. charles and freret. but these were great.

This is a clip of Kanya West telling it how it is. He may not people that coherent, but atleast he is telling the truth.

Since tulane automatically signs us up for its standard health insurance plan, does this mean we've already begun coverage (it was scheduled to start on aug. 19) even though we didn't pay yet?? Also, we are no longer covered under the Mega Life and health plan from last some of us are either paying for health insurance we don't know about, or are completely uninsured. Tulane--you need to give us some answers about this kind of stuff now! My daughter needs to go to the hospital, and we shouldn't have to pay out of pocket just because you won't give us ins. information!!

thanks for the photos from an alumnus of Tulane.

I think cowen has been doing a great job with this whole thing, however it is getting to the point where he needs to give us a little more information. All of his updates on the emergency site have been so vague and have prevented me from taking action in terms of my schooling. (I'm waiting to hear from him if it is okay for students to take off the fall term and just work and the money from the fall tuition will just be transferred to the Spring term). I understand he's juggling a lot of things and there are many complexities. We've all been patient, and there comes a time when we NEED to have this info as it will soon be too late to enroll in a college. If anybody else can clarify the financial situation and address the question I had above, I'd appreciate it greatly. Thanks to Cowen, Brett Hyman, and good luck everyone!

If you are planning on taking courses at another school, and don't have the Tulane catalogue, then if you go to and type in the course number, you can access the course description, making it easier to find courses that will transfer.

They have opened a FAQ section on the Tulane Website but the info isn't great. It did say that they are working on a call receiving center to take our questions personally which is good. Anyways, here is the site:

Here is an aerial image of the park, Tulane, Loyola and the blocks adjacent to that area. These are from They took 350 aerial photos of the areas effected by the storm. This should show most of the student housing in that area.

I am a Tulane parent in Texas. Many of our Texas students have enrolled at UT Austin for the fall. I was wondering if there are any Tulane alumni who live in Austin who might be interested in contacting the students and extending a welcome/helping hand to them. As of last Thurs, about 125 had registered at UT. It's not Tulane but it is a viable alternative to continue their education for the fall. Pls contact me and I can put you in touch with the students who will be able to reach even more of their classmates.

My friends and I sent a message to Fresco yesterday just to check in. They replied today with a positive message that I am sure will lift the spirits of all Fresco fans! The message is below.

"Thank you for your concern and good to hear that you are doing OK. Your message had been the hilight of our day. We have contacted most of our employees and all are doing fine. The ones we could not reach live in uptown, thus we at least hope they are doing better as the area is dry and the supplies reached the city. Although we don't know the damages at Fresco, we at least know that the area is dry. Thus, as soon as we will be allowed to start the repairs, we will begin.

We look forward to seeing you at Fresco, again, next semester. We will be there."

It's great to see that people still care about Tulane and are ready to go back. I've started a group called REBUILD AND RESTORE TULANE to get our campus, city, and community back to the way it should be...and even better. Join our group on facebook if you are seriously interested in dedicating time and effort to volunteering in the city we love. Or email me at THANKS!

I just want to say that the water around willow is still prett high. I live on palmer and willow and my father was allowed into new orleans today (sept 10) and the water is still about 4 feet inside my house. So for all those curious, the water is like that starting about 3 blocks up from willow and of course continues down to claiborne...also the water at one point was definently about 6 or more feet so while it may have receded a lot of stuff probaly saw water, which is very contaminated and full of mud and who knows what else. I know from the pictures of my bedroom, there is mud smeared all over the walls and furniture turned upside down and floating. so basically if you live anywhere like a block past freret your house flooded if it wasnt significantly built up.

I honestly must say this is one of the most useful blogs I have ever come across. I am not just saying that to butter you up! I am doing my thesis paper for my master degrees and spent the last 12 hours (and 10 cups of coffee) researching this area topic. So many blogs have generic information but yours is different. I can actually apply some of this information to my works. No worries I will give you credit in my references. I took it upon myself to add you to my favorites and will visit back to let you know how my grade ends up. Many thanks!compare home owner insurance.
