This detailed schedule overviews your day-to-day programming, meetings with your peer leaders, and the many opportunities for you to connect with the Tulane community, campus resources, and your class.
It is now August, which means another New Student Module has opened on Canvas! Please complete this module prior to your arrival as you will discover all you need to know about Hullabaloo Hello, including a video walkthrough of the schedule. By completing this mandatory module, you will receive your fourth and final virtual badge. Each student who collects all four badges will be entered into a drawing for Apple AirPods Pro.

The Office of First-Year Experience
Hullabaloo Hello is a celebratory welcome to Tulane University beginning the moment you arrive to campus. Hullabaloo Hello encompasses move-in, orientation programming, signature events, and so much more. The celebration will continue throughout the first two weeks of classes and ultimately conclude with First Fest and the Fall Activities Expo. Throughout the experience, you will be introduced to the people, peers, and places who work to make your transition an easy one. Plus, there will be a parade of opportunities to connect with your classmates.

As a new Tulane student, your voice counts!
During Hullabaloo Hello, you will join the long-standing tradition of Tulanians’ participation in The First-Year Survey, a national survey that gathers information about incoming college students. This is the first of many ways we will ask for your input as a Tulane student. We ask that you regard this, and any future questionnaires, as an opportunity to contribute important insight on your experiences and how Tulane can best meet your needs. Faculty and staff truly do utilize any information you include to adapt and modify our campus. We thank you in advance for your participation in the First-Year Survey!
Throughout Hullabaloo Hello, there will be a team of staff and student leaders present all around campus, eager to support you. If you are ever unsure of where you should be, just ask us! You will meet your Wave Leader on the evening of your Move-In day. This student leader is your go-to resource for navigating all things Hullabaloo Hello!
Hullabaloo Hello is just the beginning of a year-long orientation to Tulane University. In the next section, you will learn more about our office, First-Year Experience, and discover the programs and resources designed to support your transition to college. The First-Year Experience team is here to guide you throughout your entire first year at Tulane!
The Office of First-Year Experience (FYE) is committed to supporting first-year students through their transition to the academic and social communities of the university so they are able to find their place, people, and passions.
