Student Life

Housed in historic Richardson Memorial Hall, the Tulane School of Architecture is comprised of approximately 350 undergraduate and graduate students. It is a close-knit community of makers and thinkers working together to develop their skills as designers. Faculty members are knowledgeable and accessible, with a genuine interest in student achievement and experience. Small, engaging classes allow students to receive personalized attention crucial to the creative process. 

While Tulane is a challenging university, it is both competitive and supportive. The School of Architecture pairs first-year students with upperclassmen mentors to introduce them to the school’s unique culture. Students also receive support from studio groups and a dedicated undergraduate academic advisor. 

Several student-run groups provide the opportunity for leadership within the larger School of Architecture community. And a snapshot of student life at the School can be found in theCharette, a student-edited publication: www.the-charrette.com
