All classes are suspended for the week of March 16. Starting the week of March 23, all classes will resume entirely online. Tulane School of Architecture (TuSA) remains open with most faculty and staff working remotely. Students can be granted access to work in the building only with prior approval from the school. At this time, we are not hosting admissions tours.

Please continue to check your Tulane email, Canvas, the TuSA COVID-19 FAQ, and the Tulane Emergency Management page for updates.

Tulane is working with students who have difficult personal circumstances that would make leaving campus a challenge or will face complications in online learning once they return home. In response, we have set up the Tulane Student Emergency Aid and Assistance Fund to address current student needs.


Dean Schwartz welcomes students at Tulane Hello Wave event in Los Angeles

Dean Schwartz speaks at Hello Wave event

Dean Kenneth Schwartz addressed incoming students and their parents during a Hello Wave reception in Los Angeles this month. Roughly 150 attended the event hosted by Steven and Tracie Angarella. Multiple Tulane representatives were on hand to welcome students, including School of Architecture’s Development Director Emma Herr.

Schwartz recognized the class of 2021 as the most diverse and academically strong in Tulane’s history, with 22 percent students of color and 5 percent from outside the United States. Californian will send 215 students to Tulane this year, the third highest in the nation.

The dean shared highlights of the university’s efforts to, “increase excellence through interdisciplinary learning.” Tulane students enjoy taking courses in different fields, with many pursuing double majors. “We are now taking this a step further by bringing multiple disciplines to specific classes and developing new options for majors,” he remarked.

In alignment with this goal, Tulane is pursuing innovative research that merges multiple schools and disciplines. “We are solving local and global problems, through education and engagement,” Schwartz noted.

His advice to thrive at Tulane? “Be smart, be safe, be kind and make a difference whenever the opportunity arises – that’s what Tulanians do.”
