At Tulane University, it seems you can perform service and then get served. Or you can do it in the reverse order.
Tulane was named the top school in the “Lots of Hard Liquor” category by the prestigious Princeton Review. This is the second year in a row the uptown New Orleans-based university has won that title.
Tulane was also named the top school in community service. That’s an improvement from last year where they finished 5th.
From The Times-Picayune:
Tulane took three other top-10 spots in the test-prep company’s topical lists. The intensity of their adoration for New Orleans was second only to Vanderbilt University students’ love for Nashville, Tenn. Tulane university placed sixth for quality of life and ninth in the “Party School” category.
Six other Louisiana institutions made Princeton Review’s list of the country’s 381 best colleges: Centenary College in Shreveport, LSU, Loyola University , University of Louisiana at Lafayette, University of New Orleans and Xavier University.
Last year, I profiled an organization called Roots of Renewal for Opportunity Lives. It’s a group founded by Tulane University students that works to teach recently released prison inmates construction skills in order to reduce their chances of going back to prison. It’s a great organization so the community service ranking is well-deserved.
More young people should follow their example of actually trying to change the world instead of bitching on social media.
As for the hard liquor ranking, well I won’t blame Tulane students for knocking back a few after class and community service. After all, if you work hard you should play hard.
