One of my favorite sayings is “dare to be different.” I have two older brothers, both of whom have attended and done well at Indiana University. I have enjoyed visiting the school, but I don't plan to follow in their footsteps. I'm more of a do my own thing kind of girl. While considering where to attend college, I’ve often thought that I’d like to find a school with an outstanding academic reputation, the feeling of a big school atmosphere, plus the many benefits of a small school. Tulane is such a place. A close friend of mine is a junior at Tulane who told me that she was considering attending a Big 10 university prior to visiting Tulane. She insisted that I come visit, to better understand the meaning behind the phrase “green wave is the best wave.” Prior to my visit earlier this year, I had never been to New Orleans, or even to Louisiana. Visiting for the first time in January of this year, I left the cold of Chicago behind, unaware of how warm New Orleans can be, even in winter. As I walked to Gibson Hall for my tour, I felt my hair becoming frizzy and my skin start to dampen, but for some reason I didn't care. I was simply that focused on learning more about the excitement I sensed all around campus. The speaker was both enthusiastic and engaging. She covered many of the basics, including the size of the school, the most popular areas of study, and the living and dining accommodations. All important pieces of information for certain, but none alone were truly

Tulane has everything I would need to learn and study hard to achieve my passions. Through my dedication and outgoing nature, I can also give back to Tulane because I am committed to helping others and contributing my ideas. One of the reasons I fell in love with Tulane is that the school encourages majoring in different fields within different schools. When a Tulane’s admission officer visited my school, she spoke of a student who minored in dance and was on the pre-med track. Diversifying one's academic pursuits provides huge benefits because I desire to learn about my surroundings from various lenses to gain a large range of knowledge. I look forward to exploring my options at Tulane. Academically, the program I desire to pursue is Neuroscience. Since Tulane is ranked highly in neuroscience, I would be
The essential question is “Why are you interested in attending Tulane University?”, but in all honesty it should be “Why not Tulane?”. No I have never had the chance to visit Louisiana, none-the-less Tulane, but I have always yearned to visit the unique state. What better way to explore the state than by attending a college located there? Like the state where Tulane University is located, it seems to be a very diverse yet fun place to live out my college life. My interest in the college range from the academic reputation of the school, the location and social environment, and the overall attractiveness of the college.
During my two last years of high school, i've been in contact with a lot of colleges and universities. Many of which don’t get my attention. Throughout my whole high school years, there was only one college that i wanted to go to, Liberty University. I have heard so many wonderful things about Liberty and what i loved the most was that it was a christian school. Liberty had the number one thing that i am looking for in a college, that is a christian school, but many of my other things that i look for in a college where just not there. I used to live in Florida approximately 11 years ago and let me tell you, it's hard not to miss the sunshine state. Liberty is in Virginia, a state where it doesn't feel like home. When i received a brochure
I grew up going to Spanish immersion school with people of all backgrounds, and It’s very important to me to attend a school that is representative of the entirety of the US population. Continuously, I have always been drawn to learning about different cultures, and I wanted to attend a school where I could learn about new culture from my peers. Tulane having one of the most geographically diverse student bodies would offer me the opportunity to work with people with an extensive array of
The University of Wisconsin-Madison struck my eye from the very first time I stepped on campus. It was a beautiful morning in November; the air was brisk, the sun was shining, and the leaves were just beginning to fall. Being from Arizona, there were only two seasonal weather patterns that existed: really hot with a nice, cool winter. I had loved every second at home, but I was ready to experience something new.
Ultimately, Tulane University is my dream school because of the amount of knowledge I know it could offer me. Even just sharing knowledge with current Tulane students would be something like a dream. Attending Tulane would be a large step in the right direction towards my desired career, and towards my
When I go off to college I plan to go to a college that fits me. College is important for anyone’s career, and I want to be successful. That is why the university I attend has to feel right, and inspire me to succeed. Washington University in St. Louis does that for me. WashU makes me challenge myself, and ensures me that it is the perfect place to go. Some of the university’s great qualities include their majors, the location, and the community.
“Once a Dragon, always a Dragon” is more than just a phrase to me. I have lived in Niles, Ohio for my whole life. I have learned many valuable lessons while living and attending school here. As a senior I have applied to many schools and while many were great, I found one that offered everything I was looking for. They have an outstanding academic program, the major I intend on studying, a great campus that I feel at home with, and lots of extracurricular activities. It seems like the perfect college, but the only problem is, it is five hours away. I am going to be studying chemical engineering with a minor in paper science at Miami University. Even though I will become a redhawk for the next four years I will still be a dragon at heart.
New Orleans is a city that has always been immensely fascinating to me. I love that every street corner is teeming with culture and excitement. I have been visiting New Orleans ever since I was a young child and I love it. The energy of the city is so uplifting and inspiring. Earlier this year when I first learned about Tulane, I was ecstatic and couldn’t wait to apply. My hometown of Austin, Texas is also a city filled to the brim with life and culture, but it is so different from New Orleans. Attending Tulane would be a major challenge for me but one that I would be extremely willing to take on. I would be exposed to so many new things and would be forced to step out of my comfort zone. It would be a thrilling opportunity to live in such a unique city during a time when I am exploring who I am. I particularly love how Tulane incorporates the local culture into school activities. The crawfish boils and Mardi Gras traditions are things that I have not been exposed to in Texas, and I would be excited to experience them at Tulane.
I am interested in attending Tulane University because of its academic and social opportunities as well as its location. Tulane has strong history, theatre, and dance departments. It is important to me that I go to a university where I can receive the best possible education in the areas that interest me. I am also interested in Tulane because it is a school where it is very easy to double major and minor. I have a lot of interests, and I think college is the time for me to explore them. The admissions counselor I spoke with told me that 70% of Tulane students have a minor, 33% have a double major, and some students even have a triple major. I think this also shows that Tulane is the type of school that attracts ambitious students with a variety of interests. Additionally, I like that the core curriculum at Tulane allows students to investigate different areas of interests and to possibly find a new direction for themselves. The admissions counselor I spoke to also discussed that around 1/3 of Tulane students study abroad. This appeals to me because I would like to be able to go study theatre in Europe. Furthermore, I have been studying Spanish for over seven years, so I am interested in study abroad in Spain where I could be completely immersed in the language.
To begin with, Tulane University has a renowned educational program incomparable to many other universities. By offering a diverse variety of courses instructed by highly qualified professors, Tulane creates a challenging
I somehow managed to visit Tulane of what I most certainly feel was the hottest day of the year. While walking around campus on my tour, I was positive I would faint. Despite this, however, I still fell in love with Tulane and the surrounding city of New Orleans. I have always loved history and if one thing can be said about New Orleans it is certainly not lacking any history. While exploring the French Quarter and the Garden District I became fascinated with the rich culture bursting at every turn. The ghost stories, the voodoo magic, the music, and even just the colorful atmosphere all filled me with intrigue. Tulane seems to mirror that rich culture I so value. With its strong connections to New Orleans, given the extensive community service
It is important to me to chose a school where I think I would most fit in. My tours to the University of Houston have really shown me how diverse the community is, and I love it! I am a very active person who loves to chatter, make friends, and educationally challenge myself everyday. The social, yet focused environment that I felt on my trips makes me believe I would fit right in. The people are so friendly, and to me, it is amazing to see the different races and ethnicities come together to watch and cheer at football games or sing along to everyone’s favorite song the way the students do at the University of Houston. My family is another big part of my decision to apply to the University of Houston. My family is very tightly knit. From attending
On the day my family came to tour the USF campus back in September 2014, I dropped my mother off at the John and Grace Allen Building. I told her to walk straight under the building and through the trellises, past the bull fountain and into the Marshal Student Center to wait for me, but she got lost, very lost and ended up over past the Education building. My mother’s frustration and anger at how confusing the layout was to her was growing and her image of the University I wanted to call home was dropping fast. My mother was amazed at the kindness of
After waiting 18 years, the time has finally come for me to open the door and select where I go to college. I have always been an Alabama fan and been on campus many times for football and basketball games. I fell in love with it from the moment I laid eyes on it back in 2007. The red and white lining the streets, friendly faces, and nicely decorated buildings attract my eyes. Both of my parents attended the university for their college years, and I look forward to doing the same. The college is perfect for me, the location, Majors, size, athletics, and the familiar faces I will see and not have problems getting along. The idea of waking up and being able to be in a safe and comfortable environment is very satisfying. I can vividly recall the time when my father took me into his fraternity and showed me his
