Why I love Tulane

Here are just a few things that I love about Tulane and New Orleans, feel free to post in the comments section what YOU love about the experience:

It's value of all types of music
The culture of the "Big Easy"
House of Blues
Audubon Park
100% Humidity
Ms. Mae
Red beans and rice on Monday
Bruff (well, we could probably live without it)
The TIDES program
F&M's on Thursday
David Lesmond
The greek system
The b-school not having class on Friday
Jambalaya and Gumbo
Potholes
Crawfish boils
Sharp and Monroe
"Party Buses"
50 cent night on Tuesday
The Brennan family restaurants
The same 15 songs playing in the boot
Beau Parent
The library social scene during finals
thefacebook
Broadway
B-school free pizza
Brass bands
The sound of the street car going by
Pregaming
Hearing people say y'all
Dough Bowl pizza
Parades

But most importantly, I am going to miss all of you, the students. No where in the world have I met the finest collection of people. When I moved to New Orleans, as a freshman, I became part of New Orleans and its culture. But quickly the tables turned, and New Orleans became a part of my life and my culture. New Orleans is a part of me.

things i miss...
that feeling of belonging to something more, studying at pj's, the maple street bar scene and all the people who work there, and actually being interested in my courses.
most of all it's the balance i had at tulane. work, school, and play. i never felt bored or restless; i always had somewhere to be, people to see.
there's just no stability anymore.

I love not being told about what's happening with financial aid/tuition/loans this fall. Wait... no, I don't. One would think they could at least say that they can't access their computers, but they hope to have it figured out by whenever. But, I suppose that would be too much to ask.

I once read that you can live in any city in America; New Orleans is the only city that lives in you. It slides down your throat, gets into your stomach, makes you feel all warm and dizzy inside.

I don't know about y'all, but New Orleans still lives in me.

On a more useful note, unless someone has already pointed this out (if so, my bad) Wikinews has a great list, state-by-state, of college options for displaced students.

http://en.wikinews.org/wiki/Colleges_offering_admission_to_displaced_New_Orleans_students

Take care, and I'll see everyone in the spring. I am operating under the assumption that with Scotty leading the charge, we WILL be back on campus by then, albeit in a very different New Orleans. I suggest you do the same.

Of course, sometimes...Scotty doesn't know.

How do we get in contact with Tulane alumni in the various cities where we will be attending school?

Some of us are in need of temporary housing - until we can find something. Enrolling, taking classes that may have already started, finding housing on such short notice, and some of us have only have a week's worth of clothes, is compounding the anxiety we feel about not attending the school of our choice.

a few of the things i miss about tulane/new orleans:

switching from wool socks and sneakers to flip flops when i'd come back from thanksgiving and christmas breaks

drinking on the front lawn of a frat house right in front of a cop and getting into bars with the worst ID imaginable

laying out between clases in november

wearing brightly colored rain boots with little skirts

the occasional trolley ride on a beautiful spring day

spending all of saturday at the levee

the belgian waffle maker at bruff

getting yelled at by the woman at bruff - for taking apples, asking about garden burgers or omlets, or just existing

gathering with half my floor at 1 p.m. on fridays freshman year, realizing that most of us did not make it to class and trying to figure out what the hell happened the night before

seeing the entire school at the library during finals

Ms. Maes

the time warp that is F&Ms.. and the cheese fries

boot pizza and popcorn at bruno's

not being able to walk anywhere on campus without seeing at least five people i know, and one person i wish i could forget

running through audobon park in the morning

walking by the newcomb daycare center and seeing all the adorable and racially diverse children playing together

hearing the live music in the french quarter

drunk busses

my smallest classes where everyone got to know each other

awkward elevator rides in monroe

the cornbread at jaques-imo's

feeling like i know everyone, even though i'm always meeting more

getting a table outside at happy hour in the spring, losing count of all the 3 for 1 beers consumed...

ordering pizza from the boot on a rainy day just so they'll deliver it with cigarettes, not because you're actually hungry.
kegs of green beer for st. patty's day.
r.a.'s walking around with red solo cups of vodka on their own hall.
the free tobacco that comes with paraphanalia you buy at the mushroom, because you're obviously buying it for tobacco purposes only.
seeing girls flashing for beads, in april, with their parents, while you're sitting on a balcony eating dinner with your mother, and looking to go to school at tulane.
the monroe quad, that will never be grass.
that shit-eating grin you get on your face when you come back after the summer and know that nothing will ever be as great as this city and this school.

One of the best things about Tulane and New Orleans is bringing in a friend from another city or university and letting them experience the things on this list.

From that point forward, New Orleans and Tulane and has a new ambasador that will almost always have great stories and experienes to share.

This gives way to countless opportunities to recall- retell- and remake these experiences with that visitor.

Students with dreadlocks and attend school barefoot.

Students with a $200.00 haircut, a $500.00+ outfit, with a $3,000+ watch and go out in public in $2.00 shower slippers.

Students who jones food in the pavillion or sneak into Bruff yet drive a $40,000.00 car and spring break in Africa.

Those of us fortunate enough to have the ‘college experience’ have an immense appreciation for what we learned, experienced and in general how we grew as a person. The excitement, energy and emotions during that four year experience are like nothing else in your life. In short, the uniqueness of the college experience is unmatched.

Take that and consider the fact that our college experience took place in New Orleans – a city like none other and that has been permanently altered. The Tulane experience should be a treasure that we hold on to.

Audobon Park- fabulous any day or night.

The fact "E", the Travel Channel, Sportscenter, the food network and some many other stations and shows can cover this city and not even scratch the surface.

People from "ALL OVER" the country coming to our institution.

A city with a population of virtually every culture- Irish, French, Cajun, Greek, Indonesian, Chineese, Cuban, African, Honduran, Jamaican, Braziallian, Vietnamese, and, of course, Tulanian.

But, you kids have painted a beautiful picture with your words.

I hope Tulane and N.O. rebuild quicky so you are not cheated out of the remainder of your college experience.

And, when they do rebuild, I'm going to go see all of these places that are so dear to you. No, I won't tag along with my son or impose an "old person" into your haunts. But I think every parent should read your words and figure out it's not just a great education, it a great life experience.

i feel like i love new orleans and tulane more than anyone else....i cant even try to describe the best of tulane..so ill try to generalize...
the insane ammount of bars
THE BEST FOOD IN THE WORLD
the craziest people
(tulane and new orleans)
the attitude of the ra's and teachers(ra's encouraging you to fuck your test and drink 40's)
the best friends
the best time of my life
the thought my potential for being happy is completly satisfied when im in new orleans.
for any freshmen reading this...no matter what you are thinking, you must stay...by picking tulane you joined the luckiest kids in the world and you dont even know it.

F&Ms and the glory that is their cheesefries, grits on thursdays, getting wasted off dollar drinks at the club, playing photohunt for hours,1800 fuc-meup drinks at Nick's Train Bar, seeing everyone you know laying out at the levee instead of going to class, all the food at jacque imos, ka kegs on fridays, chi o parties, the way broadway and the boot used to be two years ago, knowing pretty much everyone on campus cuz you see them out every tues, thu, fri and sat.

I miss free music...
Great food
Friends
The laid back atmosphere
Sitting on my balcony watching people play in the rain
Playing in the rain!
Knowing my professors on a first name basis
Shorts in January
My Girlfriend (she's still down there)
Cafe du Mund
The cafeteria ladies that would call you "baby" and "honey"
Red beans and rice
The trolley
Ghetto cabs
"Proud to call New Orleans home" stickers on all the beat up cars

I was just browsing various blogs as I was doing a search on the word halloween, and I just wanted to say that I really like what you've done with your blog, even though it wasn't particularly related to what I searched for. I appreciate your postings, and your blog is a good example of how a blog should be done. I've only just recently started a Posters website - feel free to visit it when you get a chance if you wish. Much success, antonio.
