My last week at WHIV 102.3fm has been one of the most hectic weeks I have been here. In my last post, I mentioned that I had a 15 minute segment on a topic of my choice. I chose to talk about the Tulane bubble and how students often attend most of their academic career without leaving campus or seeing the city of New Orleans. In my segment I interviewed five people to discuss their opinions of the Tulane bubble and what they believed contributed to the situation. One student, who claims to avoid the bubble, said that this stems from the lack of transportation in the city. She argued that the streetcar is unreliable and cabs are expensive. Another student claimed that the campus bubble is normal for most college campuses and finds the bubble to be “safe.”
I was impressed with the variety of information and theories I received and found that 15 minutes wasn’t enough time to cover everything. However, I am glad to say that my final project at WHIV was one of the most rewarding. It is a topic that I am interested in as New Orleans has become a new home for me and I am interested on what new topic I can report next.
