A ‘Green Wave’ of New Students Hits Tulane University for Student Orientation
July 10, 2015
As students across the country gear up for a new school year, Tulane University hosts its New Student Orientation Program to welcome incoming first-year students.
Held throughout the months of May and June, New Student Orientation is an opportunity for new, first-year students to prepare for the fall semester. The Tulane University Bookstore actively participates in the nine sessions held each summer by the University, welcoming new students and their families to campus and introducing them to another resource on campus. This year, the John Parker New Orleans Jazz Band performed outside of the bookstore to welcome students in traditional New Orleans style.

The SplashCard is a picture ID that works as an all-in-one card for meal plans, library services, computer labs, campus bookstore and more.
