Why Tulane School of Architecture?
The word 'distinct' is often used to describe Tulane. One of Tulane's defining characteristics is its location in New Orleans, and that distinction is more significant now than ever before.
Tulane University has a long history as an exceptional private university. Our institution is committed to providing an outstanding undergraduate educational experience, one that provides opportunities both in and outside the classroom. Tulane architecture students are taught by the university's premiere faculty beginning with the first semester of their initial year. When this kind of stellar education is combined with the opportunity to be involved in the largest urban renewal project ever undertaken in our country, the result is a college experience found second to none, only at Tulane, only in New Orleans.

Portland, ME – Class of 2020
I wanted to learn how to tackle problems through design and explore my passion for the built environment. A design education is important to me because it allows me to utilize my creativity and draw from a variety of disciplines.
Seattle, WA – Class of 2021
I chose Tulane because of the unique opportunities that the architecture program provided to allow students to make a difference while still learning in school. On top of that, I wanted a smaller school with smaller classes and the social atmosphere of Tulane is matched by no other.
Gretna, LA – Class of 2020
Do not be afraid to study architecture because you do not have experience with art or design. There is something for everyone at Tulane and there is power in diverse thinking.
Natchitoches, LA – Class of 2017
I choose Tulane for a multitude of reasons. The biggest ones were these: The city! The architecture and overall flow/design of the city is like no other. All the chances to get out and help the community and the state were also a huge factor in my decision. I also loved the camaraderie and supportive studio culture I saw when I toured the School.
Bellingham, WA – Class of 2019
When I was applying to colleges, I was stuck between so many possible paths. I was interested in art, sociology, languages, politics, and design. I ultimately chose architecture because I found that it could be a point of intersection for all of those things. I also loved the creative environment of “studio”: working closely with the same people, having a space all my own to work, and working one-on-one with my professors.
