Third Coast Residential Learning Community Launches and Musical Cultures of the Gulf South Celebrates Interdisciplinary Place-based Learning.
Third Coast Residential Learning Community launched a welcome reception for incoming first year students in Butler Hall! Third Coast examines the gulf south region’s tenuous urbanism, changing climate, and rising seas through place-based learning. First year students will gain an “insider” understanding of how culture and environment intertwine in this new fertile place and how their specific academic and professional goals connect with their surroundings. Third Coast is a partnership between the Tulane University Department of Housing and Residence Life and the New Orleans Center for the Gulf South. We look forward to engaging in urban and coastal field trips with local experts, and dinner conversations with culture-bearers, scholars, and scientists.
