Events such as reunions, panel discussions and open houses engaged Tulanians of all ages, with the weekend capped off by an exciting win over the University of Memphis Tigers, helping propel the football team to a triumph at the Cotton Bowl in January. Wave Weekend activities and celebrations started with a Presidential Speaker Series, the Back to the Classroom Lecture series, and open houses at campus schools and units. Reunion parties for classes whose graduation years end in 2s and 7s were other highlights of the weekend. The Tipping Point returned for a sixth year at The Fillmore New Orleans. This year’s all-star benefit concert was headlined by eight-time Grammy Award winner Stephen Marley (son of Bob Marley) and Lukas Nelson (son of Willie Nelson). The event helps fund scholarships for qualified students to attend Tulane regardless of economic background.
