TU students are spending today and tomorrow preparing for their impending finals. In order to help students de-stress, two of our campus organizations hosted fun events today where students could get away from their textbooks to see some friendly, furry faces.
TU’s chapter of AIChE partnered with the Tulsa SPCA and 20 Park, a local coffee shop, to bring our students some fuzzy friends. Between 10 AM and 2 PM, students could join AIChE in the Allen Chapman Activity Center to play with some cute (and adoptable) dogs.
Later, the Fisher South Hall Government partnered with Sooner Golden Retriever Rescue for a Golden Hurricanes and Golden Retrievers event on the Chapman Commons. Students were also invited to bring their own Golden Retrievers from home. Students and dogs had a great time cooling down in the King Rogers Fountain.

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.

We always get asked about job placement and earnings, and some new findings suggest that University of Tulsa graduates have the highest earning potential among Oklahoma colleges and are some of the top paid in the region, according to a new survey.
PayScale — a market leader in global online compensation data – reported that TU alumni with a bachelor’s degree earn a starting median salary of more than $49,000 and a mid-career salary in excess of $90,000.
The survey results rank TU first in Oklahoma and No. 5 among schools in Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee and Kentucky.
“TU graduates are prepared to begin making a difference their first day on the job. Our faculty work diligently to ensure students gain real-world experience and are aware of the many opportunities available to them,” said university President Steadman Upham. “Many of our students are courted by leading companies before they even receive their degrees, and once they enter the workforce, they are well compensated.”

A Tulsa area school, the Tulsa School of Arts and Sciences, lost its building to a fire earlier this month. Eight Tulsa firefighters were injured fighting the fire, which started accidentally in the TSAS building. TSAS students and staff lost their school supplies and equipment, along with the building itself, after the accident.
The TU community has been rallying together to show their support and collect supplies for TSAS students. This week, we delivered the supplies to TSAS (temporarily set up in another building), along with some treats to cheer them up. We want to thank everyone who donated and wish the TSAS community the best of luck as they continue their school year.
We are so excited to have some new student bloggers this semester! Many of them are freshmen, so they will tell you firsthand about what it’s like to jump into college life at The University of Tulsa. We also have a photo blogger, David, who will be taking pictures of events around campus and posting them for us. I think we are going to let them each introduce themselves, but keep an eye out for their posts! We think you will like them! We sure do.
