Welcome To College is thrilled to announce the addition of Cameron Gordon. Cameron joins the company by way of the Strategic Advisor Program from the Albert Lepage Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation at Tulane University.
Last month, my senior year at Tulane University came to a close. Although it was not in the way that I expected, I graduated with a degree in Communications and Gender and Sexuality Studies and I consider myself extremely fortunate to have spent four years at in institution nestled within a city I care for so deeply. The Tulane Class of 2020 was comprised of nearly 2,000 students and at the time of our acceptance, we were the largest freshman class. Prior to attending Tulane, I went to an all-girls school for 14 years; where, coincidentally, I was also a part of the largest graduating class - a mere 82 young women at that.
Transitioning from an all-girls school to Tulane was challenging, but I would not trade it for the world. Apart from the rich history, culture, and wrought iron sense of community that is embodied within New Orleans, a big part of the reason why I chose to come to Tulane was that I had an excellent college visit. With that being said, I am looking forward to supporting Welcome To College as they aim to guarantee a college visit of the same caliber for all students.
Like many of my peers, I am currently in the process of carving out my own career path - one built on a platform of diversity, inclusion, activism, representation, and advocacy; and I believe that there is no better place to jumpstart it than in New Orleans. Diversity and inclusion work, although growing in importance and recognition, is rarely prioritized within the workforce, or within college campuses, at large. Yet, Welcome To College is making strides to change that, and I could not be happier to be a part of a team that is committed to doing so this summer.
