Squad is a leadership and teamwork community that explores how to be a Tulanian as understood through the lens of school pride. A collaboration with Tulane Athletics Department, Squad is a dynamic and unique community that is centered on tradition, excellence, and school pride. Participants will live with like-minded peers that seek to create a vibrant and supportive campus environment, will engage in and develop initiatives that honor the history and values of the Tulane community, and will help to share the culture of the university through leadership development and opportunity to learn from coaches, athletics staff members, and leaders in the New Orleans community. Participants will also have access to exclusive athletic events, guest speakers, and an insider’s view of our athletic traditions.
Below are a few examples of past programs that Squad RLC students have participated in through the RLC. The programs vary each year with input from RLC students, staff, and faculty.
As a member of the Squad RLC, you must take a Tulane Interdisciplinary Experience Seminary (TIDES) course that is affiliated with the RLC. The TIDES program offers first-year courses to students to promote interdisciplinary scholarship and exploration. For descriptions of the courses being offered in each RLC please see the RLC application.
The Squad RLC will be located in Sharp Hall for the 2021-2022 academic year.
The RLC application can be found on your Housing Portal when you apply for housing. You must fill out both a Housing Application AND an RLC Application to be considered for the RLC.
