One need only look at our alumni calendar for proof that Tulane is indeed a national university. We have exciting events going on from coast to coast! Last week's Tulane Takeover: New York is a great example. Over 175 current students had the opportunity to meet with over 150 alumni and parents at an all-day conference at Time Warner Center. Thank you to all who attended.
We are headed to Hollywood for our inaugural LAgniappe celebration for Tulane alumni in Los Angeles on Oct. 29. If you are in the area, be sure to purchase tickets and attend. You will enjoy New Orleans cuisine and cocktails and a performance by the one and only Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue. The party will be held at the 20th Century Fox Studios on the commissary lawn.
Homecoming/reunion/family weekend is right around the corner on Nov. 6-8. We have all kinds of events planned, culminating in the Green Wave taking on the University of Connecticut at Yulman Stadium that Saturday afternoon.
All of our alumni clubs have been meeting across the country gearing up for our largest ever fundraising campaign, with our public launch scheduled for late 2016. We have been visiting many cities and conducting interviews and focus groups about our priorities and communications, as well as surveying others through an online survey. Please be sure and complete the surveys - your opinions are important!
