CLICK HERE to see pages from a recent Tulane University Yearbook!



The Tulane Jambalaya yearbook has been published since 1896, with hiatuses from 1996 – 2003, 2007 and 2009 – 2017. The yearbook was operated as an independent student organization from its inception in 1896, but in 2016, The Tulane Hullabaloo student newspaper and Main Campus Publications joined forces to relaunch the publication. The book is a photographic souvenir of students’ time at Tulane with full color images of campus events, locations and the Tulane community.


Is this a Tulane publication?
Yes! The Tulane Jambalaya is published by The Tu
lane Hullabaloo in partnership with Main Campus Publications. The Hullabaloo provides content while MCP coordinates marketing, printing, ads and delivery. Revenues from the yearbook help The Hullabaloo, Tulane’s student-run, self-financed newspaper, deliver news and information to the Tulane community!

How can I be included in the book?

All Tulane students can be included in the Tulane Jambalaya portrait section (Freshmen-Seniors). There is no cost to be included in the portrait section. There are two ways to be included:


  1. Take your on-campus portrait (For Seniors and Graduate and Professional Students only). Yearbook photographers are on campus at least once each semester and students are invited to schedule their free sittings. Learn more about student portrait sessions here.

  2. Upload your own photo (For FR, SO, JR, SR, GR and Medical and Law students) Students can upload their own portraits at Seniors are able to select this option if they prefer to use their own photo instead of taking a portrait on campus. (Note: The legality of using a professional headshot or portrait varies under different circumstances so please be sure you have the rights to the photo you are uploading. If you have questions, contact the photographer who took the picture.) Photos will be cropped to a head and shoulders shot. Please make sure the photo is of only one individual and that their face is free of obstructions, excluding any religious garb.


Can I submit other photos for the book?

Yes! The Jambalaya Yearbook includes a Scrapbook Section. Simply upload your selfies, student organization activities pictures and more at Please be selective about the photos you upload:

  • Only upload your own photos.

  • Remember this book will be printed and distributed to hundreds of people.

  • Only 3-5 photos of/from an individual will be accepted.

  • Only upload high resolution (between 1-3MB file size) photos. Photos copied from websites or social media usually won’t print well.


Why isn’t my name in the graduation list?

The Jambalaya aims to include every possible student in its list of graduates but a few issues may arise to impede this.

  • Some students’ privacy preference settings (FERPA) don’t allow the Tulane administration to release the students’ names or information to third parties. Check that Tulane is allowed to share directory information with others to ensure your name is included in the listing.

  • Students that are walking at Commencement but have not yet earned all of their credits may not be included on the list The Jambalaya receives from Tulane.

  • Delayed grade reporting or late completion of graduation requirements may also result in a student’s name being inadvertently left off the list of graduates that the yearbook receives from Tulane.


Where’s my picture?

Only portraits taken through Prestige Photography will automatically be given to The Jambalaya for inclusion in the yearbook. If you took your portraits through any other company but didn’t upload it to The Jambalaya website, they weren’t sent to the yearbook.
