A Very Tulane Spring Break

This spring break, I was reminded of the reason why I love Tulane so much. Our student body is just so diverse, as a student here you'll meet someone from Texas, New York, California, Florida, Alabama, North Carolina, Utah--it's common for your friends to be from all over the country. I spent my break first up north in New York, roaming through central park and times square.
Then, I traveled back down south for the Houston Rodeo, which was definitely an interesting experience for the New Yorker in me. I was able to see bull-riding, cowboys, cattle, and sheep. Oh, and I saw Train preform! If you had asked me before coming to NOLA about a rodeo, I probably would've just thought of bull-fighting. Basically, this break showed me that if it wasn't for the diversity at Tulane, I wouldn't be experiencing so many new places and experiences. I hope everyone had a great break, now let's get back to reality--or Howie T at least.
