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.

Real Estate Summer Minor project winners rewarded with aerial tour of New Orleans

April 16, 2019

Three students in the Real Estate Summer Minor (RESM) program at Tulane School of Architecture got a special reward recently for winning a project last summer.

Students Matthew Baum, Connor Taub, and Benjamin Stackel (RESM ’18) joined RESM Director John Huppi and pilot Eric Botnick on an aerial tour over New Orleans as a reward for their performance on a case study project in the RESM 3040 course: Fundamentals of Real Estate Development. For the project, students were asked to put together a development proposal for a blighted building located in the City. The proposal included financial and market analysis, design programming, and other due diligence items. Students presented their case study projects to influential figures in the local real estate industry who served as investment “sharks.” The aerial flight tour included a low level flyover over Tulane University, Downtown, the Lower Ninth Ward, New Orleans East, the Bonne Carre Spillway, and the students' case project site. The students also made a special approach onto the east-west runway at Louis Armstrong International Airport (MSY) to see, first-hand, the new north terminal project which is scheduled to open to the public later this spring.

Enrollment in the Real Estate Summer Minor program starts April 1 for all students at Tulane University. Visit architecture.tulane.edu/realestateminor for more information.
