As a Tulane University student, there are so many incredible aspects that make this university such a special place, but one of the greatest parts of Tulane is having New Orleans at your fingertips.  While the education in the classroom is obviously a critical part of any college education – especially at Tulane – It was not only my professors that inspired me, but stepping out and sharing in the celebration of the food, music and personality of New Orleans.

I graduated a few years ago and have since moved to New York City but experiencing the culture and history of New Orleans first hand is something that stays with you long after you have left. As a Tulane student you are immersed in NOLA culture, and one of the biggest celebrations of this unique culture is Mardi Gras.

 Mardi Gras and the events leading up to it are some of my favorite memories from school. Mardi Gras doesn’t just take place on Bourbon Street or along the parade route – the costumes, music and celebrations take place all over campus. Mardi Gras may not be the typical “traditional” celebration but some of my favorite parts of were the traditions my friends and I made our own and relieved each year. It was also incredible that people from all over the world traveled to OUR city, to our home to experience the culture, music, and vibrancy that is NOLA. When you live in New Orleans, it is YOUR celebration. Like the saying goes, “Only at Tulane, only in New Orleans”.

I hope all the current students, exhausted after the marathon that is Mardi Gras, realize what a once in lifetime experience we all share. It is an experience that connects us back to not only New Orleans and Tulane University but a shared history, Alma Mater, and home.
