Paying it forward: A note to the new inhabitants

Moving to a university campus is a time full of excitement and nervous anticipation for first-year students just beginning their academic journey, and friendly words of encouragement are greatly appreciated. For new students Jack Harty, a Newport, California, native who plans to major in neuroscience and minor in public health and real estate, and Nico Sabia, from Northfield, Illinois, majoring in finance, this came from an unexpected source — a hole in the wall of their room in Monroe Residence Hall.

OPINION | Exuberant online shopping is harmful

At the start of every school year, the Tulane University Mail Service teems with activity. Freshman and their parents scramble to pick up their last minute necessities. Trucks full of Amazon and Fedex orders come and go. It all seems so convenient and efficient.

Tulane went toe to toe with Oklahoma, power has returned to New Orleans, and President Fitts announced that we will be able to resume in-person classes on September 27th- two weeks earlier than anticipated!

Forward TUgether

Our heartfelt thanks to the whole Tulane community. To our staff, we are thankful for their incredible work securing our campuses, executing evacuation, and repairing our damages. To our students, we are thankful for their patience, good humor, and cooperation under difficult circumstances. And, to our faculty we are thankful for pivoting to on-line teaching and continuation of groundbreaking research. Our thoughts and prayers are with the many Louisianians who suffered much more devastation than New Orleans and the Tulane community. We know the recovery of some parts of our state will be long and arduous.
