FEMA funding goes to demolition instead of a replacement building
By Leah Askarinam | Nov 20th, 2009 | Category: Issues, News, November 20th Print Edition

After ruling out a replacement building for financial reasons, Tulane decided to replace the Anthropology Building with a parking lot.

Tulane athletes deserve credit

By Zach Zamechansky | Nov 6th, 2009 | Category: Issues, November 6th Print Edition, Sports

After this week’s 45-0 thrashing at the hands of LSU, it’s easy to be critical. It’s important, however, to remember that Tulane’s football team is not made up of professional athletes. It consists of students, just like us. In almost every case, these students play their hearts out for Tulane week in and week out.

A transfer student describes change of culture
By Faine Greenwood | Jan 31st, 2009 | Category: January 29th Print Edition, Views

I’m a Tulane transfer.
I came from a small liberal arts college in the Massachusetts Berkshires, a place where pretentiousness, anti-social behavior and overt weirdness were not only accepted but encouraged. There were 300 people in the entire student body, and we all fancied ourselves budding young geniuses, we liked to spend our Saturdays discussing long-dead […]
