As part of NSO the Carolyn Barber Pierre Center for Intercultural Life hosts an orientation program to help new students and their families get connected to resources and individuals who can offer support and advice to ensure students have a successful transition into college. It's an opportunity to hear from campus administrators, staff in the Center for Intercultural Life, including the Office of Multicultural Affairs, The Office for Gender & Sexual Diversity, and Religious Life. Our goal is to help every student get access to the tools they need to thrive during their Tulane experience.
RSVP for the orientation that corresponds with your move in date
In 1963, Tulane admitted the first Black students to pursue their academic goals of earning advanced degrees. Almost six decades later, we are welcoming more than 500 first year students who identify as Black Indigenous, Latine/ Hispanic, Asian, Pacific Islander, and people of color. We are also welcoming a growing community of queer and trans students to the Tulane community. To honor the continued growth while centering students who hold multiple identities, we will give new students a cultural pin. During this ceremony students will hear from administrators, faculty, staff and student leaders of the Multicultural Council and Gender & Sexual Advisory Council about what it means to be a part of the legacy of diversity at Tulane. This program will be followed by an outdoor welcome reception featuring various student organizations, affinity groups, and a group photo.
Request a peer mentor to help you learn your way around campus. We will match students with a mentor who shares your identities, academic interests, hobbies, etc. Click the link above to apply today!
