" Meeting new people was much easier than I thought it was going to be since we were all in the same boat and nobody knew each other. I made bonds that I did not expect to in such a short amount of time. My time at Tulane was some of the most fun I have ever had, and I am very grateful for everyone who was a part of my experience.
