03_16_2014_tu_basketball_reception_reynolds_ec0580I didn’t always want to study abroad. Tulsa became my home away from home very quickly and the idea of spending one of my eight semesters in a different place didn’t seem like something I really wanted or needed to do. As time went on I came around to the idea of being adventurous and leaving TU for awhile. I have loved my experience abroad and I can’t believe how quickly it’s gone by. There are definitely certain things I miss about campus life, but I got to experience some of them this weekend!

La Nourriture

Sarah
School is keeping me pretty busy right now, but it’s going on hold for a second because I’ve had a special request for another blog post.

This one’s for you, Dad (and anyone else who’s interested).

My parents went to Italy last May with two of my mom’s good friends from college. When asked about their experience, my dad’s go-to line was, “I loved being able to eat without fear.” Of course he loved other things too, but the food was definitely a highlight. Continue reading

Throwback to Orientation week

Sarah
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,

Sarah
