To celebrate the school’s success, Dean Pierre Buekens hosted a reception during the Student Government Association’s Thought Symposium, with custom-decorated cakes and festive balloons in Tulane colors. The event also coincided with the school’s biggest open house of the year, giving both current and future students the opportunity to share in the celebration. Staff and faculty also participated.

The increased ranking solidifies the school’s reputation as the best public health school in the Gulf States and reflects continued growth across the school’s six departments.
