Due to the weather patterns in the Northeast, The University of Tulsa is extending our Early Action Deadline until Friday, November 9. Many colleges have made the decision to extend the early action deadline to allow students affected by Hurricane Sandy time to submit applications and supporting documentation. We have decided to give any student extra time to complete an application to TU.
During these challenging times, we want to do our part to remove any stress that may be associated with the application process.
If you are still working to complete your application, you now have until November 9 to do so. You may also take the extra time to submit any supporting documents.
If you have any questions or need additional assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact the Office of Admission. We look forward to working with you and reading about all of your great accomplishments.
I can say without a doubt that Halloween is one of my favorite days out of they year, especially as I get older. About a month ago my friends and I decided that we should make our costumes correlate, and we decided Teen Titans would be the best option. It quickly caught wind and more people joined, we lost some in the tedious process of making the costumes, but overall it turned out well for Haunted Hall. Making the costumes was fun in it’s own right and then dressing up and seeing the surprised looks on everyone’s faces was priceless. Luckily this was just a test run for Halloween because some costumes, especially my friend’s Sebastian’s (who is Red X in this picture) were incomplete and almost falling apart. I’m looking forward to Halloween on Wednesday because I get to play at the TU men’s basketball game in full costume, and then my friends and I are hitting the town for some trick-or-treating. NEVER too old to trick-or-treat, you’ve just got to find someone who’s willing to give you the candy. By far one of the best Halloween’s I’ve had in years.
Introducing: the bonfire. Homecoming was this past weekend, and one of the highlights (quite literally) is this raging torrent of flame and fury. Stretching from the once-flowerbed floor to the crest that nearly licks the stars, this fire provides enough light and heat to power a small planet. It draws onlookers from far and wide to marvel at its intensity
Pretty impressive, eh?
I always love when my family visits campus. I get to live the Tulsa experience every day, but for them, it’s a special occasion to be here. This past weekend was Homecoming and Family weekend at TU, so naturally we were all so excited to spend the weekend together. My parents drove from Norman on Friday night and made it in time for a quick dinner at The Hut Cantina on campus and TU’s annual Homecoming bonfire and firework show. They were blown away and kept mentioning to me, “Wow. My school never did anything like this for our Homecoming.” I was pretty proud, and pleased that they enjoyed one of my favorite TU traditions as much I did. My brother flew in from St. Louis that night, so we made our way to the airport to pick him up. The next day was all about tailgating and football. That game against Rice was so suspenseful, but Tulsa came away with the W! Later that evening we celebrated my mom’s birthday at a Mexican restaurant in downtown Tulsa’s Brady district. I love my family and I love TU. Getting to combine two of my favorite things into one weekend was awesome. I can’t wait for this time next year to roll around!
Hey TU admissions blog readers, my name is Sebastian and I am a freshman at the University of Tulsa. Let’s get the boring stuff out of the way first. I’m originally from California but I moved to Oklahoma when I was around 9 or 10 so I’ve spent equal time in both places. I originally wanted to major in Computer Science but then I became inspired, like in the movies, and now I’m majoring in Graphic Design.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the 8 or 9 years I’ve spent in Oklahoma and the only thing I can say I really miss about California is In-N-Out. If you don’t know what In-N-Out is, follow these instructions. Get in a car, drive down to San Francisco (specifically the San Francisco In-N-Out, there is no substitute) go to In-N-Out, order a Double Double Animal style and Animal Fries. Once you’ve done all that, proceed to eat the glorious food in front of you, experience heaven and then come back to Oklahoma so you can go to TU. In all seriousness though, I’m excited to be a new blogger for TU’s admission blog and I look forward to sharing my experiences with you all.
P.S. Here is a picture of a Double Double Animal style and Animal Fries
We are lucky to have such a vast array of concert venues in Tulsa. From big name super stars, to new and upcoming artists, downtown Tulsa has become a hub for those who love to attend concerts. I myself am a huge country and dubstep fan. Downtown Tulsa is a quick and hassle free 5 minute drive from TU. These concerts not only draw TU students and Tulsans, but students from OU and OSU. I was lucky enough to go to a few shows last week.
Fun Fact: The BOK Center was named the the top venue in the world by the International Association of Venue Managers! This is the place where super stars perform. I’ve bought my tickets for Eric Church fifteen minutes after they went on sale! I can’t wait until December 7th! Excited is an understatement.
Pretty Lights at The Brady Theatre
Paper Diamond at Cain’s Ballroom
Inside Cain’s Ballroom – This is the best pace in the country to watch a concert! There isn’t a bad seat in the entire room. Every ticket is general admission with standing room only. It gets a little crazy to say the least.
Fun Fact: In 1978, historic Cain’s Ballroom was only one of a few venues to host the Sex Pistols in their only American Tour.
With hectic weeks my favorite part of the is the days we get to just relax! Especially when I get to do that with my suite mates! This past week we had midterms, papers, and half of the girls had commitments to take care of for their sororities, so we planned a Sunday to recover from all of life. Sunday morning brought a great church service and then we went to Olive Garden for lunch! Seriously who can resist those bread sticks? One of the worst decisions we made was to go to Petsmart because they had puppies and kittens and we had to truly remind ourselves that trying to take one of the rescue dogs to our suite was not the best idea.
I mean I really don’t think my RA will notice if we just have one of these cute things in the room! If they had a problem they would come over, fall in love with them like we did, and problem solved! Can you tell we miss our dogs at home? After we had to part with these guys, we went shopping and got stuck at the dollar bins at target which led to decorations for our room!
This door makes me so happy and it just makes me excited until it’s Christmas! Also on Sunday we saw Pitch Perfect, so between good food, amazing friends, darling puppies, fun decorations, and so many laughs from that movie it was a wonderful day!
On a side note it makes me so happy to walk around such a gorgeous campus! I really can’t get over how pretty it is around here! It’s good to be a TU student!
Hey there my internet people. I am happy to say I am still alive and ready to start blogging again. I have once again found my inner muse, so be ready for some awesome posts! This semester has been rocking and rolling since day one. But every now and then I need a break.
The Tulsa State fair came to town about a week ago and I had a great time. There are free concerts everynight and lots of vendors and attractions. And let’s not forget the food! I definitely had my fair shair! Let’s see…I had 2 jumbo corndogs, garlic parmesan curly fries, chicken on a stick, fried reese’s, fried oreos, fried snickers, and funnel cake topped with ice cream and strawberries…yeah I think that was all.haha
This week is homecoming at The University of Tulsa. So I’ll be back soon with more to share. Till next time.
Hello My name is Elaine, and I am a Freshman here at Tulsa. I am from St. Louis, Missouri. My Major is energy management currently. I am also hoping to double major in elementary education. Also, in my MIS (managment of information technology) class the other day a woman came and talked about majoring in MIS, and I thought it sounded really interesting becasause she talked all about working in groups and thinking about new inovative ideas. It was quite fascinating so I might minor in that. I’m glad I have time to decide. I am also part of the rowing team here. I walked onto the team, and it is a large time commitment (20 hours a week) but I think I would actually be really bored without it. I also joined a sorority when I got here. I just joined because I thought it woudl be a good way to meet people. I never actually planned on joining, but the first night I just clicked with a couple of the girls in my house, and I decided that it would be fun to try. There is also a girl in my house who is on the track team so during philanthropy weeks we go to dinner after practices, which is good support.
