    School year at Tulane

    Just out of curiosity how will Tulane hold class this fall when school starts and how much damage was caused at the unviersity? Do they have an alternative place to resume classes or do they just postpone the school year?

    Re: School year at Tulane

    I am not sure if it was, but they showed an outdoor stadium that was at least 20 deep with water. All but the top 10ft of the goalposts were sticking out of the water and it looked like the lower tier of seats were underwater as well.
    Not sure if it was Tulane stadium or not, but it looked like it.
    So I would say that school is in jeopardy for the whole year.
    I am sure that some accomodations will be made, but not anytime in the near future I would guess.

    Yes, Tulane plays in the Superdome...old Tulane Stadium was torn down years ago.

    Re: School year at Tulane

    Right now those who evacuated New Orleans are being told that it could possibly be a month before they can return. One of my housemates' friends who goes to Tulane is living with us right now. He was told to evacuate on move in day.

    N.O. isn't looking good at all. A former mayor was quoted saying, "We've lost our city. I fear that it is potentially another Pompeii."

    I say they should abandon the place entirely! Why rebuild when you can just move?

    Re: School year at Tulane

    My cousin actually is starting college this year at Tulane and they were driving to drop him off when Katrina hit. They had to stop in Texas I guess, not sure if they are still there though. I was told that classes are starting a few weeks later, but that's all I know for right now.
