The Tulane Hullabaloo

What is the role of a writer?

Writers are essential in generating content for the Hullabaloo. We expect all new writers to reach the position of contributing writer, having published three articles within the semester they join.

Writers can write for any of our sections, including news, sports, views, arcade or intersections, and are free to write for more than one section.

Our writers have the opportunity to develop skills in journalistic reporting and writing and can gain access to events like concerts, festivals and sporting events for coverage purposes.


Our news section and its writers accurately report on all Tulane and New Orleans happenings pertinent to our community.

News articles range from full-fledged news reporting to shorter news briefs and breaking news stories.

News pieces are fact-based and may utilize interviews, data, polls and other forms of source collection.


The sports section reports on a wide range of sporting events and news locally and nationally. We emphasize Tulane Athletics and club sports while also covering local high school athletics and professional sports.

Topics covered include, but are not limited to: game previews and recaps, general sports news and “From the Basement,” the Hullabaloo’s sports opinion section.


Views publishes op-ed pieces related to Tulane and New Orleans happenings and welcomes all fact-based opinions.

Op-eds are informal, argumentative essays that typically range from 500-700 words.

Topics covered include, but are not limited to: campus culture, social activism, safety and crime, student misconduct, administrative issues, academic departments, student organizations, admissions, health, diversity and sexuality.


Arcade covers all things New Orleans art and culture, and all things Tulane art and culture.

Topics covered include, but are not limited to: food and drink, fine art, performing arts, student life, music, festivals and attractions, shopping, TV, film and local culture.


Intersections works to highlight marginalized voices in our community, typically publishing personal narratives or op-eds on a broad array of subjects.
