The Tulane Hullabaloo was established in 1902 as the eyes and ears of the Tulane and Uptown communities.
The mission of the Tulane Hullabaloo is to provide the most accurate, thorough and engaging coverage of news, sports, multicultural issues, opinions and entertainment.
The principles The Hullabaloo members follow are:
- Seek content that impacts readers, provokes discussion and advances knowledge
- React quickly to newsworthy events, whether on campus, around New Orleans or in another part of the world, if they impact our readers
- Reflect in our product the diversity of the backgrounds, goals and interests of our communities
- Adhere to The Hullabaloo’s ethical guidelines while engaging in a professional manner at all times
- Develop ourselves both technically and ethically to become successful student journalists
Our newspaper prides itself on being entirely student-run and independently funded through advertising revenue. The Hullabaloo is published every Thursday of the academic year, excluding holidays and exam periods.
Please submit letters to the editor by 2 p.m. on Wednesday. Letters should express an opinion on recent Hullabaloo coverage or items of interest to the community and include a phone number, email address and the year/position of the author. The Hullabaloo reserves all rights to edit, abridge or reject any letter. In cases of possible harm to the author, names will be withheld at the Editor-in-Chief’s discretion if authorship can be confirmed.
The Hullabaloo strives for journalistic integrity and follows the Society of Professional Journalists Code of Ethics found below.
The Hullabaloo is currently reviewing its constitution, bylaws and internal code of ethics. Our staff will post them when approved by The Hullabaloo board.
The Hullabaloo is a member of Associated Collegiate Press, College Media Association, Student Press Law Center and the Louisiana Press Association.
