Letter to the editor: Tulane’s loss in rank showcases lack of priorities

To the editor:

While Tulane has been occupied with building its new $73 million Yulman Stadium, its ranking on the US News and World Report has fallen steadily over the past three years from 50 to 52, and now to 54. Most of Tulane’s peer institutions, such as Vanderbilt, Rice and Emory, are ranked 16, 19 and 21, respectively. Has Tulane lost sight of its priorities?
