Hi. Tulane is a college possibility for our college-bound high school student (female). What can you tell me about the general safety environment for students at Tulane?

The area Tulane University is in is a very upscale safe area with a rather large park right across the street. The problem a lot of Tulane student run into is when they go out to the French Quarter on the weekends and they are riding the street car back to their dorms at 4am in the morning. That's when you'll see students getting mugged, but typically in the area the university is in, they are very safe.

I agree. The campus is in a very safe area of Uptown New Orleans surrounded by a high income residential area. However, there are some other areas of Uptown that are not as safe that students tend to wander into as they are exploring the city.

In some places along the streetcar line (St. Charles Ave.) a rough neighborhood can be just 2 blocks away. The streetcar itself is not an issue, but some of the areas within walking distance to it can be a little sketchy. I don't want people to get the impression that riding the streetcar is dangerous, because that's not the case.

After a few weeks, most of the new students know which parts of the city to visit only with large groups or avoid altogether.

It would especially benefit her to live on campus (perhaps it is a requirement, I don't know?) and slowly get a feel for the city and what would be safe/unsafe. But that being said, there isn't too much to worry about in that area, just use common sense!

I live in the Tulane University area near Maple street and have been in the same house for 50 years so I have seen a lot of carelessness by students.
On the positive side Tulane University has a very responsive campus police that patrol not only the campus but surrounding neighborhoods. I frequently see them patrolling my street. On the negative side I see so many students walking around clueless of the dangers that may be lurking around the corner. The local police reports suggest most crimes happen between 11pm and 3am to students on foot, I assume leaving one of the many college bars.
Anyone attending school probably does not listen to adults and school officials that try to warn them. I especially worry about single young ladies walking around at night with cell phones talking as they walk as if there is some protection with the cell phone- it is not Kryptonite. Students need to be wary of strangers on bicycles and yes unfortunately most crimes are committed by black males between the ages of 14 and 23 years old and many are armed with handguns.
