Join us for New Student Orientation where you'll meet new and current students, faculty and staff. Important information on university policies, campus safety procedures, financial aid, and much more will be discussed. If you haven’t met with your advisor don’t forget to schedule a one-on-one session to discuss registration, degree requirements, or any other academic questions. Orientation is great way to successfully transition to SPHTM and New Orleans. Please contact SPHTM Student Affairs at 504-988-7111 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions along the way. We’re glad you chose Tulane, and we look forward to providing an excellent experience.
