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.
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 Third Coast 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 Third Coast 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.
