My daughter is one of those 1800 freshmen.

My only requirement for her was that she look at Tulane, since I had such a good experience. I did not make her apply. Her trip to the admitted students weekend on March 31-April 1 went very well for her, and sealed the deal.

Now I need to work on her and her new friends to go to some football games.

Thanks. Hopefully she will witness four years of winning football.

Congratulations, Joker. My Tulane classmate/best friend’s daughter is finishing up her freshman year at Tulane and LOVES everything about it. They are from Chicago. She has managed to take in everything we all know and get excellent grades besides. We were there last fall for our 40th combined with his parents’ weekend.

My daughter told me had she not gone the music conservatory route she would have gone to Tulane. Her performance last year in Dixon Hall completed the circle. She loves New Orleans.

Very cool, and thanks for getting this string started. Your original post reminded me that there are lots of kids from out-of-state. When discussing football it has often been said that not enough Louisiana students is not good for the fan base. That certainly makes some sense, but at the same time I have to think that a lot of expat students is good for the university's overall national reputation and good for the city of New Orleans. New faces bring churn, and churn is good for economies.

Looking back regarding my kids, I certaintly exposed them to Tulane at an early age wanting one of them to attend. Living north of Houston, Tulane was playing Rice in all sports back then and I took them to all events - had my own tailgates rain or shine. Basketball, baseball, football and then road trips to New Orleans at Spring Break to watch baseball in freezing temps. I even had my son meet Tommy B before the '98 Homecoming game where Tommy took him aside and talked to him one on one. Took him to Tulane first hosting of their Regional. Well, when it came time to apply, he wanted a smaller private school (<3000) and received the President's Scholarship. No complaints here. My daughter wanted to stay in Texas with her friends. No regrets, but a little sad. My sister is an Alum and wished we could continue the legacy. Roll Wave.

My daughter will be third generation Tulane. First my Dad (undergrad '48, med school '51), then me (undergrad '86). Not to mention her Uncle GSx (undergrad '79, MBA '80). That is a cool thing, something she may come to appreciate.

my wife and I both went to Tulane, her sister and brother-in-law both went to Tulane her uncle went to Med School at Tulane. As much as I tried exposing my kids to Tulane, neither ended up going there. For my Son his major was not offered and my best chance, my daughter who went to every sporting event I asked her to go to (football, basketball and baseball) and who even went to games on her own with her friends while in high school............decided she wanted to navigate her own path and experience going away to college. Where she is very happy, BTW.

There's a lot of nice schools out there. Where did your daughter end up?

For me, growing up in Lafayette, Tulane was kind of this mythical place. I only remember actually going on the campus once as a kid, to the Tulane-North Carolina football game in 1974(?). The next time was for GSx's graduation in '79 or '80. But Tulane was always big in my imagination.
