As shared in Tulane Today, the university’s daily e-newsletter, Wave Weekend ’23 was full of celebration for Tulane students, families, alumni, faculty and staff, friends, and fans. More than 10,000 people registered for “WAVE23” and its festivities, including reunions, concerts and WAVE23 tailgating for alumni/reunions and for Tulane families. The football game was thrilling, with the Green Wave winning before a sold-out crowd of more than 30,000 people at Yulman Stadium.

Tulane’s Green Wave football team won the game, 35-28, to a sold-out crowd and jubilant cheers. This latest victory secured a bid for the Green Wave to a post-season bowl game, a fitting achievement to be made in front of a crowd celebrating the success of Tulane.

The festivities kicked off on Wednesday, Oct. 18, with authors Walter Isaacson and Michael Lewis holding a lively conversation that was hosted by New Orleans Book Festival at Tulane University. Conversation flowed freely between the authors in front of a full house in McAlister Auditorium, as they spoke about their new books and growing up in New Orleans.

On Thursday, the Lavin-Bernick Center for University Life became a circus for Tidal Wave, with clowns, a tie-dye station and balloon flowers. Windows painted by student groups and a photo op station in front of the Goldring/Woldenberg Business Complex added to the festive atmosphere.
