Tulane Mummy Lecture Digs into Tomb Timeshare
by Derick Dupre
When the dust of the weekend clears and the brain begins its waltz back from liquefaction, you'll want to remember one thing: mummies. This Friday at Tulane, mummies will be the topic of discussion in a lecture presented by the British Egyptologist Dr. Nigel Strudwick. The focus will be on the tomb of Senneferi, a close confidant of pharaoh Thutmose III.
Tulane Takes to Rave Guardian
Tulane students are signing up in droves for a university-sponsored phone application that functions as an emergency panic button.

Bros Behaving Badly: Tulane's Kappa Sigma Frat Suspended After Drug Bust, Newspaper Theft
A pair of Tulane frat house antics were deemed unpledgeworthy by the frat's big brothers. First, a Feb. 21 federal drug bust at the Kappa Sigma house put $10,000 worth of drugs on ice. Then, two of the brotherhood's pledges confessed to stealing more than 2,000 copies of the university’s student newspaper splashed with the headline hours after its Thursday afternoon publication, according to the Tulane Hullabaloo. As a result of the incidents, the frat is under investigation, according to Kappa Sigma national overseers.

Tulane, City Finalize Fine Print on Yulman Stadium
Before Friday, Tulane's future football stadium already had a name and funding, but one critical piece remained before the golden shovels come out. Tulane and the City had to resolve lingering public concerns over the new crowds, cars and crap that would fill the Uptown neighborhood surrounding the university. On Friday, the City released the final agreement with the university, which puts restrictions on the Yulamn Stadium's uses, instates traffic and parking plans and details the boots on the ground necessary to control the football fans' litter.

Tulane to Join Big East Conference
With its focus on football, it was perhaps a matter of time before conference realignment arrived in New Orleans. Tulane University announced they will join the Big East Conference, departing Conference USA in Summer, 2014. At a press conference to announce the move this afternoon, Tulane President Scott Cowen said academics were at the core of the move. But the forthcoming on-campus football stadium couldn't have been far behind in Big East Conference officials' minds.
