Here at TU or should I say Oklahoma, football is definitely something of importance. At the University we do our best to accommodate our sports loving fan. This year we held a huge Super Bowl Party at John Mabee Hall (the male residence hall). It was a great time that involved music performances, free food, and most importantly FOOTBALL! There have been many great events at John Mabee including a Mario Kart Tournament, Ice Cream social, Self Defense seminars and more. All of the residence halls at TU are like this and they host many events in order to provide the students with multiple ways to spend their free time. Here’s to another great event from John Mabee and the rest of the residence halls at TU.
At the University of Tulsa there is never a shortage of interesting events to attend. Philips Hall will be showcasing art professor Glenn Godsey’s work Digits and Doodles through February 20. This exhibit is different from traditional exhibits as it showcases all of the artist’s works including his doodles and sketches! I have some pictures from the exhibit below, and I think you’ll agree that TU is home to some very talented people. Also, Glenn Godsey is the oldest sponsored yo-yo team member in the world. He was even featured in a documentary
We are learning all sorts of different techniques from this man in my Illustrator class and it’s quickly become one of my favorites. I would highly recommend it to anyone who decides to attend TU!

I want to preface this post by saying that I’ve never taken a photography class in my life. The only camera I was familiar with was the one on my iPhone.
However, this semester I took a photography class and it has been very enjoyable. TU offers not only digital but also black and white photography (which is what I’m currently taking). The class teaches you the basics of using a 35mm camera and how to take black and white photographs. Sounds simple but you’ll quickly learn that taking a photo, developing the film, and lastly making the print is a pretty extensive but rewarding process. I’ll be sure to show off some of my better prints once I finish the class this semester. TU offers many interesting classes like these and I encourage anyone currently at TU or considering coming here to check them out. College is a time of learning, so why not learn something new?
