WHAT IS TULANE'S "MASTER PLAN"?

We've been waiting and waiting. The time is finally approaching. Grab your popcorn and sit by emergency.tulane.edu. Dr. Cowen is going to release his secret master plan within the next "48 hours."

Let me preface this blog by stating that I do think Dr. Cowen is an unbelievable leader and will actually come up with a feasible strategy for some students. But what do you think this strategy will be? Will he be able to relocate everyone to one campus or have to spread everyone out? I think he's going to have a plan to start school right away. Who will want to do this and who will want to stay home? A lot of people will be on both sides, but I think we need to stick together.

I'd advocate that if the plan sounds good, everyone should try to do it. Let's wait until he releases it before everyone starts deciding yes or no. It could be fun. Imagine being in a random city for the semester, but with a bunch of wild Tulane kids. We would run the city, and the school. Moreover, Tulane needs this support. If we show both the world and prospective students how much we love Tulane, I think they will realize that there is something magical about Tulane. I think that we can save Tulane simply by showing unmitigated support for any of their ideas, by at least considering whatever they come up with. Moreover, I'd like to say we should probably wait until this plan comes out before we finalize plans. I know that lots of people are talking about going to one school or another for the semester and then coming back to Tulane when they are ready. That’s fine, but let’s really consider the benefits of all going somewhere in Texas possibly TOGETHER, as opposed to spreading out all over the U.S.

Sometimes we forget that part what makes Tulane so special is the mixture of people who go there. Those of you who are older know this in your hearts. I would have a great time in the middle of the desert if I had a Boot and my amazing group of friends. How many of you feel the same? Hence, I appeal to the older people to remember this when they feel like transferring for the semester. Do you really need to go somewhere else, or are you willing to try something new? To the incoming freshmen, I recommend definitely partaking in whatever Tulane has to offer. You have NOTHING to lose.I hear freshmen say they want "a freshmen year experience." I totally agree, and I bet Dr. Cowen finds a way to accomodate it. And even if he doesn't, we should accept that sometimes everything doesn't work out perfectly. A little sacrifice in the name of Tulane will provide for a much more cohesive class (I think you all will be best friends). Regardless, I think Dr. Cowen will find a way to get all the incoming freshmen together. You will be with all the people who will be your future friends, and feel very at home when Tulane comes back online. I think if Tulane organizes something that keeps you together, or even splits you up a little bit- then it’s a blessing in disguise.

So let’s see what happens, hope for a miracle, and pray for Tulane’s ultimate comeback.

"Sometimes we forget that part of what makes Tulane so special is the mixture of people who go there." Nothing is more true than this statement. There is no doubt in my mind that we will all get back to normal much sooner if we work together rather than we give up and split up. The Tulane community is so special, so beautiful, so TOUGH (think: mardi gras, late nights at the boot followed by 8am midterms, etc). Let's stick together and rally behind whatever Dr. Cowen deems the best plan. Tulane has always been there for us, whether through great faculty, amazing opportunities, modern facilities on campus, or hell even the annual "special film" at mcalister. Now more than ever, Tulane needs its students. I believe in Tulane's spirit and I believe in us. Roll wave.

This site has been the most informative site for Tulane students and I firmly believe that everything will fall into place. Cowen is an intelligent man as well as a great leader and I have little doubt that he'll pull through for his university.

I'm one of the Freshmen and I'm not going anywhere. I picked Tulane for a reason and I'm going wait for it to open again. Cowen is a great leader and things will be up and running before we know it. I agree that we need to stay together to make sure Tulane comes back stronge. Thanks for all the great info.

Just being realistic (not pessimisstic, cause believe me, I've been counting down the days until I went back since about May), but I'm not sure that Tulane will be centralized... what school can accomodate us all? Based on what Dr. Cowen said on MSNBC last night, it sounds like he's been calling every school known to man to find us places... so while we may not be united physically, we'll all still have a place to get an education. Dr. Cowen is doing an amazing job... and anybody who says differently is a total and complete idiot. There wouldn't be a Tulane as we know it without Dr. Cowen. I'm with everybody else... what Dr. Cowen says, is law.

I attended Tulane back in the Eamon Kelly days. Very few universities are lucky enough to have a President like Scott Cowan. Even if one has to attend another school for a semester, I agree that students should give Tulane and New Orleans a second chance.

What about using a closed military base as a satellite campus until New Orleans is ready? This would bring everyone together.
There would be obvious obstacles, professors, staff, supplies, etc. but everyone working together could pull this off.
My daughter like everyone is devastated and at this point refuses to think about another school and if she could be together with friends and roommates then the inconveniences will be insignificant in the big picture.

While I think it is noble that we are all standing by Tulane and hoping for its speedy return-- I have to stress that just because we might make decisions to accept an education elsewhere in the meantime does not mean you've thrown in the towel on Tulane! These blogs aren't designed to guilt students into staying at Tulane when someone is offering us housing, free tuition, and meals at another institution! For those of us who lost homes, family businesses, and loved ones, a chance to continue our educations and get out of strangers' homes to school ANYWHERE is a blessing. As I read these updates, I have to wonder who is rallying students to "stick it out to the end, stand by tulane"? Are they people who can afford to miss an entire semester, watching somewhere from their parents homes? Because I know that from where I'm sitting, accepting a school's generous free tuition offer doesn't mean that I've "given up on a great school"--it means that I need a chance to start living again after this mess, so I'm taking it. We are diverse, remember that, some of us NEED the housing, food, and family that another school can provide. I just want to say that if you need to take other opportunities in the meantime, you're not a deserter!! For those of us who can't afford to wait and hope, there are places offering us a chance at a life and an education--and there's no shame in taking that.

For all you that somehow have this high opinion of Cowen, I have to really question your motives. This is the same man that tried to cut Division 1 sports from Tulane, only to change his mind and use the BCS solely for his own publicity purposes. This is the SAME man who won't live in the age old President's home in Audobon because he feels it wasn't safe, although noone before him has ever complained. Bottom line, this isn't the hero you guys are making him out to be. Let's get realistic, something Cowen certainly is not.

Did anyone else see him on MSNBC last night? He had the nerve to even state that he hoped to have Tulane up and running in 6-8 weeks. Should we put this guy in a mental hospital? Why does he not realize that Tulane is not some bubble inside the city of New Orleans. It has been WELL stated that noone will be allowed back into the city for 12-16 weeks. You can't operate a university in an abandoned city. After 3 months, then the rebuilding can begin. Cowen needs to sack up, admit this semester is a wash, and start telling people the truth. Contrary to what this blogger thinks, he's pushing people away with his bullshit, not keeping them here.

I was wondering if there have been any comments on whether Tulane would accept credits from other Universities towards one's major. I am a senior and the only classes I have left to take are ones required in order to complete my major. I want to graduate from Tulane no matter what, but I don't know whether to take classes somewhere else for the semester and return to Tulane in January or whether I should find something else productive to do for the semester. Thanks.

If the fraternities are there, freshmen will have their "freshmen experience" within the first two weeks of class. Although it's has some bad stigmas, it really does, in its own strange way, make the freshmen feel "initiated" into the party scene.... at least I did...

I agree with a little criticism of Cowen. He is a great man and has done wonders for the University, but he also has his past and present shortcomings. Past faults are insignificant in times like these. Presently, however, his extreme optimisim and idealistic outlook for Tulane and the semester is just misleading to many. The city of New Orleans may not be inhabitable for a year or longer, let alone a few weeks or months. Cowen should get realistic, let students know about the efforts the university is making to work with other universities around the nation to accommodate Tulane students. Tulane is a wonderful place to get an education, New Orleans is a one of a kind experience, but its time to get realistic.

That said, taking a semester off to figure out your life and help out with the relief and recovery efforts is far more productive than taking some classes at a local university.

Taking time off will allow students to wait and assess the situation no matter what happens with Tulane. I hate to be the one to throw it out there, but consider the possibility that Tulane University, at least housed in New Orleans may not be possible for years.

I agree that we should rally behind tulane, and utilize the decision that is made. I just hope that means keeping us all together, or at least by year, because I can't imagine a senior year without the amazing friends and spirit tulane students have shown me over the last three years. ROLL WAVE!

I graduated from Tulane in 2000 and remember the Eamon Kelly years. Cowen is doing a fantastic job. We're lucky to have him. I hope all the incoming students stick with Tulane. Cowen will get it figured out, New Orleans will rebuild, and both the school and the city will be stronger than ever. Few cities steal your heart and soul the way the Big Easy does. It's a magical place. If NOLA could survive being managed by the French, it can survive Hurricane Katrina. I can't wait for Cowen to start letting alumni know where we can send contributions to the university. I've got my checkbook ready.

Tulane, New Orleans and furture education is all I've been breathing lately. I get online, go on aim, and my friends and I talk nonstop about a backup plan. But regardless of what we say, we are still awaiting new from Dr. Cowen. The thing is, we don't want to split up, we don't want to be away from each other! Tulane campus is beautiful, but its the students and staff that makes the memories! And honestly, that's Tulane...its mostly in spirits and less physical. So wherever Tulane goes, I'll go and so will most Tulanians. We all bleed green through and through.

For Christ's sake, I'm really tired of hearing that drinking at the Boot was the best thing about New Orleans, or the most defining experience you had at Tulane! That kind of attitude made the locals dislike us as much as they did. Drinking, which I personally do enjoy, was in no way the halmark of my time in New Orleans or at Tulane; most freshmen figure that out by the second semester, and its a disservice to those freshmen here to portray Tulane or New Orleans as a constant party.
While it's heartbreaking, I'm sure, to think that the hurricane might have damaged the Bruno's construction site, remember the real tragedy of Katrina: all those dead and dying in the filth of flood water. I'd also like to remind the freshmen, and any returning students that have never lived off campus, that not everyone, even at Tulane, has their home or possessions intact. Think about your fellow students who were born and raised on the Gulf Coast, Slidell, Kenner, or countless other neighborhoods in the city. They deserve your sympathy and kindess through this thing.
As important as this forum is for discussing our plans and feelings, seriously take a second to consider if you are being sensitive enough towards the genuine splendor and and actual tragedy that our city was and has become. Those at the Superdome and Convention center were perhaps not our friends,but they were our neighbors, our cashiers at WalMart, the people who picked up our garbage, who played their instruments for dollars downtown. They are the hard working people without whom neither New Orleans or Tulane would be possible. Being apart of Tulane is not living in a posh bubble surrounded by faceless strangers and bars. I think some God damned respect is due to those people whom we shared that great city with.

Just to clarify, Dr. Cowen stated that Tulane could be up and running within 6 or 7 weeks, AS SOON AS the New Orleans infrastructure is improved. He did not say that Tulane will be open 6 or 7 weeks from this point in time. Please make sure your facts are straight before you begin your ranting and raving.

I want to start by saying that this site has been very helpful and I am constantly on it to check for updates.
I graduated Tulane in 2000 and I can honestly say that I don't hear other students from other schools speak as highly (or as often) of their university president as we do at Tulane. Dr. Cowen has done an amazing job and I am confident that he will do everything he can to plan for the future.
Ok, so maybe it won't be possible to return for the semester. But for goodness sake, do NOT fault him for having hope. In a time like this, it's the only thing that most people have.
Everything that people have said about the Tulane magic is absolutely, 100% true and I will stand behind and love this school for the rest of my life.
All my hope and thoughts go out to all the victims in all the cities who have been affected by this terrible tragedy.

i have a student who is a sophmore. she absolutely loves tulane and new orleans. i am not sure what will happen next, but we are 110% behind tulane. there will be some changes this semester, but we need to have faith. we need to realize what has happened in the gulf coast area and in new orleans. we should all be greatful that we are either home or somewhere safe. i believe that Dr. Cowan will have a plan. it might be what everyone wants, but we will all make a decision that will be best for all of us. It might not be best for everyone, but whatever everyone does, we should not criticize them. it is very hard when little information is out there, and there is nobody from the university to guide us. I believe that Tulane will be strong again. I am just not sure how long it will take.

How abouut everyone stop talking about "feasible" timelines and timeframes until they, and by they I mean the city officials and the military and governmental assistance, have the chance to shore the breeches and really get into the city. Then, they really do know how long it will take to drain the city, etc, and aren't just guessing. To do anything but that is laughable and unrealistic.

I graduated from Tulane in 2004, and although I chose to go to school there on a whim I have to say it was perhaps the best and most life-changing experience I've ever had. Though I've since moved away, I have to say that both Tulane and New Orleans occupy a very special place in my heart. I never felt that President Cowen and the university as an institution cared anything less than very deeply for its student body, and the things I learned at Tulane and in New Orleans, both academically and personally, will stay with me for the rest of my life.

I have been devastated by this situation, I can only imagine what it must be like for those of you living it. But know that you have the love, help, and support of thousands like me that love the city and the school. And, as far as whatever plan Tulane's administration comes up with for the upcoming semester, I can tell you from experience that despite the difficult time, you all could not be in better hands. Hang in there.

Dear Students, Faculty, and Staff at Tulane, I am a student at Ball State University in eastern Indiana. For days now I have been watching coverage about the devistation caused by Katrina. Being a college student myself, I have been particularly interested to see how the college communities have been responding to this crisis. I have been truley amazed at the numerous positive comments posted on sites such as this. I want each of you to know that there are people all over the country that have been continually praying for each of your safety as well as for a quick recovery for your school. I personally feel helpless in that I see so many people in dire need of help, and I am thousands of miles away with no way to help. I do sincerely wish you the best in your recovery efforts and will continue to pray for your safety and wellbeing. ~Craig at BSU

So on Wednesday, September 14th we are going to have a fund-raiser at Jacques Imos on the upper west side. I think it is gonna be $30 to get in, with Jacques supplying free food and drinks for the entire night. There will also be a silent and live auction for various trips, prizes, etc., with all admission fees and money collected to be donated to the Hurricane Katrina relief efforts in the dirty. Details to follow with an official invitation, but please start spreading the word...if any of you don't know what JacquieImos is, it was certainly my favorite restaurant down in new orleans, and about a year ago, the owner, Jacque, opened up his restaurant in NY...we feel it would be nice to

Im going to be a freshman at tulane this year, and i have worked too hard to get into tulane, and then go to some other random school who will accept me in the meantime. I know I am lucky to be out of there, and i truely believe that, but Im definetly going to stick with tulane no matter what happens. although i only experienced tulane for a few hours before we got evacuated, i want millions and millions more, and it just wouldnt be the same anywhere else. Even though i havent begun tulane really, i can still feel the green running through my veins, and i refuse to let our great wave stop rolling. For all the freshman out there, stick with it if you can! our class will be stronger because of it, and if theres an oppurtunity for you to stick with tulane, take it, it would be the experience of a lifetime, and you dont just put those things to waste. kind of like a great university, your hope, your home, your blood.

I am sure you have heard the song "Karma Chameleon" by Culture Club but have you ever given much thought to its meaning? While on Earth, you are living in a world of reincarnation which is governed by the law of karma. Karma begins to propel you as Soul on a personal journey through the universe. Karma ends when you have reached enlightenment and fully realise that this physical reality and the Universe itself is just an illusion. When you reach a state of knowingness that there is but One all pervading essence and that essence or consciousness is You!
So what is Karma and how does it work? While in the illusion you have a soul. This soul lives past, present, and future lives. To grow in love, joy, and awareness, you reincarnate into a series of physical bodies to experience different existences. This road leads to the experiences of being both sexes, all races, religions, and ethnic types throughout many lifetimes.
Karma in its simplicist terms can be described by the biblical statement "as you sow, so also shall you reap". Karma is the principle of cause and effect, action and reaction, total cosmic justice and personal responsibility. It brings 'good' experiences as well as 'bad' - a debt must be repaid and a blessing rewarded.
A more indepth esoteric look at karma gives us the following distinctions: Sanchita Karma: the accumulated result of all your actions from all your past lifetimes. This is your total cosmic debt. Every moment of every day either you are adding to it or you are reducing this cosmic debt. Prarabdha Karma: the portion of your "sanchita" karma being worked on in the present life. If you work down your agreed upon debt in this lifetime, then more past debts surface to be worked on. Agami Karma: the portion of actions in the present life that add to your "sanchita" karma. If you fail to work off your debt, then more debts are added to "sanchita" karma and are sent to future lives. Kriyamana Karma: daily, instant karma created in this life that is worked off immediately. These are debts that are created and worked off - ie. you do wrong, you get caught and you spend time in jail.
As a soul, you experience a constant cycle of births and deaths with a series of bodies for the purpose of experiencing this illusionary world gaining spiritual insights into your own true nature until the totality of all experiences show you Who you really are - the I AM! Until you have learned, you will find that pretending that the rules of karma do not exist or trying to escape the consequences of your actions is futile.
Although it may often "feel" like punishment, the purpose of karma is to teach not to punish. Often the way we learn is to endure the same type of suffering that we have inflicted on others and also rexperience circumstances until we learn to change our thinking and attitudes.
We are all here to learn lessons as spiritual beings in human form. These lessons are designed to help us grow into greater levels of love, joy, and awareness. They teach us our true nature of love. Where we do not choose love, show forgiveness, teach tolerance, or display compassion, karma intervenes to put us back on the path of these lessons. Quite simply, the only way to achieve a state of karmic balance is to be love.
Before you incarnated into your present personality, you agreed to put yourself in the path of all that is you need to learn. Once you got here, you agreed to forget this. Karma is impersonal and has the same effect for everyone. It is completely fair in its workings and it is predictable - "do onto others as you would have them do unto you" is a way to ensure peace and tranquillity in your own life as well as the lives of those you come into contact with. The law of karma is predictable - "as you sow, so shall you reap" what is done to you is the net result of what you have done to others!
Karma gives you the opportunity at every moment to become a better person than you are and to open up to the realization that you are the master of your own fate.
The goal of karma is to give you all the experiences that you need to evolve into greater levels of love, joy, awareness, and responsibility. Karma teaches that you are totally responsible for the circumstances of your life. They keep you on the straight and narrow until you have mastered your vehicle and can ride freely on your own. Once you understand that you are the master of your own circumstances and that everything you experience is a direct result of your past actions due to your thinking and emotional responses you can overcome its seeming negative effects by creating only 'good' karma.
Karma forces us to look beyond ourselves (oneness) so that we can see ourselves as we truly are Whole, Complete, at One with everything. Once we truly understand ourselves, we can see our divinity and our unity with all life.
Karma drives us to service. Love means service. Once you accept total responsibility for your life, you see yourself as a soul in service to God. Once you do, you become a fully realized being, allowing God to experience the illusion through you.
Belief in karma and an understanding of its workings will lead you to a life of bliss. Only your own deeds can hinder you. Until the time comes when we release ourselves from our own self-imposed shackles of limitation and fully understand who and what we are we will live under the mantle of karma. So until that day why not create some wonderful experiences for ourselves by "doing onto others, as we would have them do unto us". subliminal messages
