The beginning of your freshman year of college is a whirlwind of new information and new experiences, and if you embrace it, it is a thrilling ride. Here are, in my honest opinion, the most essential tips for freshman year, paired with relevant asides catered towards incoming students preparing to enter Tulane University. The Tip: Never hesitate to ask questions, especially when you are confused. I entered Tulane without knowing very many people, and it took time to fully get to know campus and my school. Whenever I was lost, either physically lost because I failed to locate any of my classes on the first day, or mentally lost due to the stinging concepts of Calculus, always take the courage to ask questions. After asking questions, the answers lead to more and more answers. Being misinformed is a disadvantage and people are…

    While in truth, I often think in terms of black and white, I also often see the shades of silver, gray, charcoal and tar that compose the other 98% of opinions and facts of the situation. The statistical analysis and composition of Tulane University are the terms in black and white; the opportunities and possibilities are the shades in between. For quite some time I have known my major of choice is anthropology, and I have entertained the possibility of a double major or a double minor. For each…
