TU Treks is a student organization that is designed to get students off campus and outdoors! We go camping. We play paintball. We jump at Sky Zone (which isn’t outdoors, but still a great time) and most recently, we went to Chandler Park to go rock climbing and geo-cashing. In case you aren’t familiar, geo-cashing is an activity in which people plug coordinates into a mobile device and then use those coordinates to find hidden treasures other geo-cashers have left behind.
And the rock climbing was amazing! You didn’t have to be an experienced rock climber to participate.
Going into the trip I didn’t know any. But by the end of the day I had met some really great people!
TU Treks also takes a spring break trip each year. Last year, the group went to San Antonio and visited Sea World where they got to pet the dolphins. This year we are going to New Mexico where we do some hiking and take a tour of a ghost town in Albuquerque.

For those of you that aren’t familiar with QuikTrip (or as we call it around here, QT), it is a convenience store that is very convenient to TU students as there is one right across the street from campus.
QT is lovely with it’s many flavors of coffee and drinks. However, my favorite part is the doughnuts. My friends and I walk to QT if it’s warm and drive when it’s cold (and sometimes drive when it’s warm because we’re lazy). Bored? Go to QT! Need a study break? Go to QT! Want a doughnut? Go to QT!

The University of Tulsa recommends a book to students before coming to college. It’s called 101 Things To Do Before You Graduate.
I’m sure that most people don’t bother to read it, but my friend Melissa and I are crazy enough to try it. We have made a goal to do about 20 easy things this semester. One is to make a new voice mail message which is actually a lot harder than you may think it is. I can’t even get to my voice mail box. Another is start a do-it board which is like a bucket list of things we want to do in life and what inspires us. We cut out some stuff from magazines and put them on there to remind us of our goals. That is what is behind us in the picture below. We also have the book in our hands if you recognize it. Melissa and I decided that we were going to run a marathon which seems crazy to me. We are not very far into training, but I ran six miles today so that is a start. I am looking forward to doing some of the items in the book. Some of the ideas are not quite as exciting, but definitely important. For example, perfecting your 30-second pitch. This is just what you say inn interviews when someone says “tell me about yourself”. Anyway I’m pretty excited to check off some of the suggestions off the list, and I am sure it will be great to say that we did!!
