I know it’s been a few months since new students moved to TU and participated in orientation week, but I’m about to get all nostalgic on you anyway. Being an Orientation Leader was absolutely awesome. I love this school and I loved helping freshmen learn to love it too. Now here comes the part where I brag about my group. I had the esteemed honor of leading The Goonies. We were quite a diverse group with students represented from all across the country and even world. Despite meeting each other for the first time on move-in day, this group of freshmen enthusiastically forged friendships and actively participated in all events. They formed a sand volleyball team and in thrilling, Cinderella story fashion took home the gold. Obviously group cheers and this victory picture were necessary. These people even threw me a birthday party! As the weeks have gone on they’ve joined campus organizations, taken on leadership roles, played intramurals and continue to eat together at the Caf. I have loved seeing their growth and the many ways they have made TU their home. Most importantly I love that orientation week is what brought them all together.
Goonie Love and Go TU,
Other than football, spring is my favorite season at TU. Here’s a quick update on some of the fun I’ve been having this semester with my friends!
Frozen yogurt from Yolotti is always a good idea. Peanut butter yogurt with cocoa pebbles comes highly recommended from…well, me. After treating ourselves to dessert, my friends and I headed to Woodward Park, one of Tulsa’s most popular outdoor hang-outs. We even saw a group of dolled up high schoolers posing for Prom pictures. Pretty fun!
Now I’m not sure why the Weinermobile was on campus this week, but clearly it was. Between classes we stopped for a quick photo-opp.
This photo was taken after a big intramural basketball win this semester! Good news, folks. The season isn’t over quite yet. My team plays in the championship game tonight! I’m hoping we win big tonight so I can sport my Tulsa Intramural Champion shirt to class tomorrow.
Although weather in Tulsa was dreary and wet yesterday, I still managed to enjoy being outside as I walked to and from class- mostly for the entertainment value. Every time I walked outside I saw something that made me laugh. First it was a guy riding his yellow Tulsa bike with a friend perched on his handle bars, just along for the ride. Then it was all of the students holding soggy copies of the TU student newspaper above their heads, serving as make-shift umbrellas. One guy made an upgrade from the newspaper though. He used a plastic tray. Of course every single girl (myself included) sported rain boots and purposefully sought out puddles to stomp through just because they could. So even if the rain was an inconvenience for some, I saw the goofiness of Tulsa’s student body shine through despite the forecast. Gotta love when that happens.
