Student at This School - Grad Year 2015

Overall Rating

This is overall a great school. The city is amazing, weather is great, academics are challenging but still manageable, and people are very friendly. However, there is a great lack of diversity and the sports teams are pretty terrible.

Alumnus - Grad Year 2003

Overall Rating

It is important to note that my experiences at Tulane University School of Public Health & Tropical Medicine are pre-Katrina. From what I understand, the school and city have changed dramatically since the hurricane.I enjoyed the education and opportunities that Tulane SPH&TM had to offer. It is located in a fun city with a rich and interesting history. All your friends will visit while you're a student here! The school itself is located in an office building downtown, which means that there are parking and green space issues but also that it is much more integrated into the city and local population than the undergraduate campus.
