Fun Facts

  • Craving chocolate while you...brush your teeth? A Tulane University alum has you covered with the chocolate-based toothpaste he invented.
  • Fried, baked, mashed: potatoes might be the world's most perfect food, however you cook them. And at Tulane University, they cook them often, clocking in around 30,200 pounds of potatoes each school year in the Bruff Commons Dining Room alone.
  • After Hurricane Katrina hit, Tulane University's Howard Tilton Memorial Library staff came back to eight feet of water in the basement. But they still managed to get the library ready to open for classes four months later.
