Tulane Green Wave

 

tulane

 

Green Wave, the nickname of the sports teams of Tulane University, was adopted during the 1920 season, after a song titled “The Rolling Green Wave” was published in the Tulane Hullabaloo in 1920. From 1893 to 1919 the athletic teams of Tulane were officially known as “The Olive and Blue,” for the official school colors. In 1919 theTulane Weekly, one of Tulane’s many student newspapers at the time and the predecessor of the Tulane Hullabaloo, began referring to the football team as the “Greenbacks,” an unofficial nickname that also led to another: the “Greenies.”

Tulane competes in NCAA Division I as a member of the American Athletic Conference (The American). The university was a charter member of the Southeastern Conference (SEC), in which it competed until 1966. Tulane, along with other academically-oriented, private schools had considered forming the Southern Ivy League (aka Magnolia Conference) in the 1950s. It joined the newly formed Conference USA in 1995. In 2012 the university announced it would move to the Big East Conference (later renamed the American Athletic Conference) in all sports in July 2014. There are 17 Green Wave intercollegiate programs.
