Insights from @TulaneYvette

Dear Friends,

Azaleas in BloomThe signs of spring are popping up everywhere in New Orleans. Tulane has one of the most beautiful campuses in the country, and when the azaleas are blooming, I want to share the beauty with my friends. Our gorgeous location provides a picturesque welcome for the more than 3,000 prospective students and family members visiting campus for the Destination Tulane informational series. Is it any wonder that so many of our students decide to attend Tulane the moment they see campus!

And for good reason. Our faculty are indeed impressive. Congratulations to Dr. Robert Garry, from our School of Medicine, for playing a key role in developing a new rapid Ebola test, which the Food and Drug Administration authorized for emergency use in West Africa.

Women Making Waves I was honored last Saturday to be in the company of some truly outstanding alumnae at our first women's leadership conference, "Women Making Waves." Tulane graduates are successful in so many fields. It is just the tip of the iceberg. I urge you to connect with your fellow alumni to take advantage of the Tulane network.

Many of our alumni will be in attendance on April 14 at the annual "Beads on Broadway" event in New York at Pier 60 - Chelsea Piers. The reception begins at 6:30 p.m. followed by dinner and entertainment by The Meter Men featuring Ivan Neville at 7:30 p.m. Click here for sponsorship and ticket information.

Hope to see you in the Big Apple or the Big Easy soon!
