Tulane Club of Atlanta

 

The Tulane Club of Atlanta is an active group of local alumni who organize social, educational, and cultural activities for Tulane alumni in metro Atlanta. The club is a constituent member of the Tulane Alumni Association (TAA). Founded in 1898, TAA provides a forum for meaningful involvement and interaction among the university's 105,000 alumni, its students, and university leaders.

With more than 3,000 local Tulane alumni, Atlanta has one of the largest concentrations of alumni in the country. We have one of the largest email list of all 60 Tulane clubs, and we are among the most active. In May 2001, the Tulane Alumni Association presented the Young Alumni Volunteer award to the Club's President in recognition of the successful programming and support of local events by Atlanta alumni.

In recent years our events have included annual crawfish boils in Chastain Park, a Mardi Gras Brunch generously sponsored and hosted by Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, a Town Hall Breakfast with Tulane President Scott Cowen at the Buckhead Club in the Atlanta Financial Center, Fat Tuesday evening receptions with complimentary New Orleans cuisine from Copeland's restaurant at Tower Place, Braves group seating and pre-game tailgate parties, Big Screen football and College World Series viewing parties, team trivia, numerous Community Outreach projects and happy hours at various spots in metro Atlanta.

The Tulane Club of Atlanta also participates in TeamIvy, a multi-school social and networking club with several events every month. For more information on this group of alumni from prestigious universities, please check out www.TeamIvy.com.

Activities of the club are planned and organized by local volunteer alumni with the assistance of the Tulane Office of Alumni Affairs. Therefore, your ideas and your help are always welcome. Please contact the club's leaders on the "Club Leadership" page if you would like to get involved.
