Every student deserves the opportunity to thrive from the moment they arrive on campus. The Tulane Interdisciplinary Experience Seminar (TIDES) champions this by equipping first-year students with the resources needed to excel.

Distinguished faculty to convey the importance of life-long learning. A small seminar environment to illustrate expectations for college-level intellectual discourse. Dedicated peer mentors to introduce the many opportunities for academic and social engagement. Enhanced learning to connect course content to community through field trips and class speakers.

TIDES strives to supply first-year students with the foundation necessary for development and success from orientation through graduation and beyond.
