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.
Pre-College Online Community Co-curricular programming sessions act as a compliment to our Pre-college academic courses. While students are simultaneously learning the subject matter in their courses, the co-curricular programs provide a unique, Tulane learning experience centered in getting to know other pre-college students, doing group activities that help students learn more about themselves and other communities, and learning more about Tulane University itself, such as details of campus life, Tulane culture, and the values that our university lives by.
Co-curricular programming sessions take place every weekday during the length of your course and are driven by our virtual summer program counselors. Our counselors, all current Tulane undergraduates, are available to you as a resource to create community and navigate your virtual learning experience. Students and counselors currently meet through Zoom sessions in small groups. Small groups allow students and counselors to easily interact with one another, and help enhance the co-curricular virtual experience. The Tulane Pre-College virtual community includes all of the programming and resources of our residential programs in an online format including:
