The Office of First-Year Experience
The Lavin-Bernick Center for University Life is more than just a building! The LBC is a hub for campus life and a great place for you to hang out, get involved, and build community at Tulane. From lounge spaces and mailboxes to the food court and bookstore, there is a space in the LBC for you!
So, you may be wondering, “How do I get involved?”. From attending campus events to joining student organizations, below are just some of the many ways you can get involved at Tulane!
Tulane has over 325 student organizations on campus! We encourage you to attend the Student Activities Expo, held at the beginning of each semester, to learn more about these organizations from active members. Involvement in organizations and activities outside of the classroom widens your social circle, builds new connections at Tulane, and keeps you engaged with campus.
There’s something happening almost every day on campus! In addition to joining student organizations, you are invited to attend signature events in the LBC, including Tulane Tuesday and Tulane After Dark. Learn more about these programs in this month’s New Student Module!
Hullabaloo Hello is a celebratory welcome to Tulane University beginning when you arrive to campus, continuing throughout the first two weeks of classes, and concluding with First Fest! Hullabaloo Hello will introduce you to the people, peers, and places that encourage a successful transition to Tulane.
A signature Hullabaloo Hello event, Welcome to the Wave unites the incoming class for the first time as you discover what it means to be a member of the Tulane community.
Another hallmark of Hullabaloo Hello, Convocation brings together new students for an official welcome from the president of Tulane University, Michael Fitts. Following the welcome, you are invited to join a second line led by a traditional New Orleans brass band. It’s the perfect start to an incredible college experience!
Outreach Tulane is a campus-wide day of service, coordinating over 1,000 volunteers at project sites throughout New Orleans. First-years work alongside upperclass peers, faculty, and staff to support the community they'll call home for the next four years.
Fittingly, many traditions center around food and festivals as New Orleans is one of the food capitals of the world. Crawfest is a student-run music and crawfish festival hosted on campus. This annual event is a top highlight for many Tulanians!
There is no place in the world like New Orleans! From historic neighborhoods and streetcar rides to seasonal festivals and world-class museums, the opportunities for exploration are truly endless – and we have so much in store for you!
All aboard! Tulane is located along the historic St. Charles Avenue streetcar line, offering a charming and convenient route to iconic landmarks, live entertainment, and world-renowned dining destinations.
Just across from campus is Audubon Park, a favorite with locals for its scenic live oaks, jogging path, and meditation garden. Overlooking the Mississippi River is the Fly, another nearby green space fit for a picture-perfect sunset picnic.
Whether this is your first time in New Orleans or you’ve lived here your whole life, there will be a parade of opportunities to find the people and places that make this city feel like home. So, take your seat at the table and come hungry for all that New Orleans has to offer!
