Tulane is a private, comprehensive university. Founded in 1834, it adopted coeducation in 1886. With more than 6,000 full-time undergraduate students in five divisions, the school offers the personal attention and teaching excellence traditionally associated with a liberal arts college, together with the facilities and interdisciplinary resources found only at major research universities. Both qualities are complemented by the exciting, historic setting of New Orleans, America's most interesting city. Programs are offered through the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Tulane, Newcomb, and University Colleges, the A.B. Freeman School of Business, and the Schools of Architecture, Engineering, Law, Medicine, Social Work, and Public Health and Tropical Medicine. The school reports, "Senior faculty regularly teach introductory and lower-level courses, and 74 percent of the classes have 25 or fewer students. The close student-teacher relationship pays off. Tulane graduates are among the country's most likely to be selected for several prestigious fellowships that support graduate study abroad." Its 110-acre campus is located four miles from downtown New Orleans.
