Would you like to experience New Orleans with the people who know it best? The Third Coast RLC convenes students who are curious about New Orleans and the Gulf South region to engage in dynamic place-based learning—inspired by the notion that the more students understand about where they are, the more fully they can participate in our democracy and engage in our collective destiny. Students will gain an "insider" understanding of how culture and environment intertwine in this fertile place and how their academic and professional goals can connect with the needs and interests of the surrounding community and the University.
The Third Coast RLC is a collaboration between Housing and Residence Life and the New Orleans Center for the Gulf South.
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 Third Coast Residential Learning Community will be in Sharp Residence Hall for the 2018-2019 academic year.
You may apply for the Third Coast 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.
