The Kaleidoscope RLC will create an incubator to explore intellectual thought, identities and values through intentional conversations, experiences and programs. These will serve as a foundation for students from diverse backgrounds to develop consensus solutions to complex social problems. Kaleidoscope offers two dedicated TIDES courses, cultural trips, and varied workshops.
The Kaleidoscope RLC is a collaboration between Housing and Residence Life and The Office of Multicultural Affairs.
All first-year students at Tulane Universities are required to take a TIDES course. Members of Residential Learning Communities have the opportunity to enroll in a TIDES course that explores the concepts and values of their community in depth.
The Kaleidoscope Residential Learning Community is in the Paterson Residence Hall. The Kaleidoscope floor in Paterson has a gender inclusive common bathroom and will have gender inclusive housing available on the floor. If other living/bathroom accommodations are needed, please contact the HRL office.
You may apply for the Kaleidoscope RLC through the student housing application process. Your answers to some supplemental, RLC-specific questions will be evaluated by a committee. If you are accepted, you will be notified and be sent more information on the room selection and roommate process.
