We plan a full slate of recreational and educational activities for participants to help students have fun and stay engaged during the Pre-College program. Students attend class in the morning and afternoon. Co-curricular activities include weekly lunch-and-learn sessions with Tulane faculty and career professionals, field trips to the Brain Institute, Solar Farm, Primate Center, and Studio in the Woods, as well as other program-specific excursions.
Whether you are interested in touring one of the most historic cities in North America, getting a behind-the-scenes look at a Mardi Gras parade, hiking in Jean Lafitte National Park, canoeing down Bayou St. John, or socializing with friends on the quad, our residential staff will ensure that your summer is not only academically enriching but also a lot of fun.
During the afternoon and evening, residential students have free time. They may devote this time to their coursework or participate in recreational and social activities around campus and in the residence hall.
Each weekend, we offer an assortment of on- and off-campus excursions led and accompanied by our Pre-College staff. These include recreation time at Audubon Park, behind-the-scene tours of Audubon Zoo, movie night at the LBC, games and swimming at Reilly, laser tag, steamboat rides, canoe trips, and visits to the aquarium and other local attractions. Recreational programming is developed and led by our pre-college program counselors who are all current Tulane students.
Pre-College weekend and evening activities are only open to residential students at this time. The Tulane Science Scholars Programs offers study sessions and academic opportunities outside of class meeting times that are optional for day students enrolled in TSSP.
