Wave Chat


Dear Green Wave Fans,

They're back! All 306 of our student-athletes have arrived back to campus, ready to start the 2015-2016 academic and athletic year.

Our coaches and staff have been working all summer, preparing our teams and facilities for the upcoming seasons. It is our hope that these improvements will make for a better Green Wave fan experience. We will be periodically sending out surveys to our season ticket holders, and I encourage you to answer honestly so we can create the ultimate game day experience for you, your families and friends.

Football is officially underway, and I've been watching practice the past few days. Let me tell you, I am thrilled with the progress that is being made on the field. Coach CJ and the rest of the team are hard at work, and ready to bring home a victory for our home opener against Duke on Sept. 3. I can't wait to get the season started just 13 days from today.

As you know, the 10th Anniversary of Hurricane Katrina is next Saturday. We have come so far in the past decade, and I want to thank each of you for your support. I also want to thank the 308 student-athletes who represented Tulane during this difficult time. If you have a few minutes, please watch the video below-let's call it an official sneak peak of the Hurricane Katrina exhibit that will be housed in the LBC from Aug. 20 through Nov. 7. It is an honor to induct each of these individuals to the Tulane Athletics Hall of Fame this year. The induction will take place on Benson Field Friday, Nov. 6. It will be an evening to remember for many years to come, and I urge you all to attend.

Brenda and I will be at Fan Day tomorrow for an exciting day of practice and on-field activities. It will be a great day to celebrate the start of the season with our fans. I hope to see you there, too.

As always, Roll Wave!


Rick Dickson
Director of Athletics - Tulane University
