Hey there my internet people. I am happy to say I am still alive and ready to start blogging again. I have once again found my inner muse, so be ready for some awesome posts! This semester has been rocking and rolling since day one. But every now and then I need a break.
The Tulsa State fair came to town about a week ago and I had a great time. There are free concerts everynight and lots of vendors and attractions. And let’s not forget the food! I definitely had my fair shair! Let’s see…I had 2 jumbo corndogs, garlic parmesan curly fries, chicken on a stick, fried reese’s, fried oreos, fried snickers, and funnel cake topped with ice cream and strawberries…yeah I think that was all.haha
This week is homecoming at The University of Tulsa. So I’ll be back soon with more to share. Till next time.
The semester is coming to an end which means summer is almost in reach. You would think this means that the fun is over and everyone is starting to buckle down for finals. For the most part that’s true, but there is never a lack of fun at TU.
This past week was my fraternity’s (Kappa Sigma’s) 51st annual philanthropy week, coined “Kappa Sigma Olympics”. Our local philanthropy is The Little Light House of Tulsa which assists families of children with special needs. And our national philanthropy is the Kappa Sigma Military Heroes Campaign which provides charitable donations to organizations such as The Fisher House Foundation in support of our military veterans.
Throughout the week we hosted various events to raise money and promote awareness and support. We had a dinner is which the entire campus was invited to come out and take part in, Burn Co (a local BBQ favorite) provided the food. And saturday we had a kickball tournament with all the sororities competing and a dance competition that night.
Kickball is pretty intense, but the dance competition is where the main focus is. The sororities start practicing months in advance all for the chance to win the coveted title. Kappa Sigma also puts on a step show as a warm-up to the dance competition. This year Tri-Delta (Delta Delta Delta) took the title, but it was a great show overall.
The weather never ceases to amaze me in my lifetime of living in Oklahoma. This past weekend we had freezing rain and snow. But as soon as it came, it was over and temperatures soared back to mid-50s. I still think there’s a good chance for at least one big snow before winter is over…we’ll see.
Saturday was the TU Men’s basketball game against Houston. We stomped the floor with them, score of 72-48! And the final game was held for the Tri-Delta “Hoops for Hope” philanthropy (supports St. Jude’s Cancer Research Hospital.) It was a pretty intense match-up, even if it was for philanthropy!
The Grammy Awards was also hosted this past weekend. It really did feel weird with the news of Whitney Houston, but as they say “The show must go on.” And Adele deserved all 6 Grammys. She’s definitely one for Gaga to keep an eye on.haha
Hey there my Internet people. After much busyness on my part I am coming to you again with another round of blogging. 4 weeks into the spring semester and school is starting to crack down so I gotta make time somewhere. But enough of that. Below is a picture I forgot to post before winter break. It’s the Christmas lights my fraternity put up for the house. More will be coming soon, but first I must study for the test of my life.
HAHA!!! And the fire alarms went off for unknown reasons in Oliphant last semester. The fire department was all too calm…
For those of you that don’t know, all the sororities and fraternities have their own Philanthropy Week that takes place throughout the year. During a sorority or fraternity philanthropy week, dinners and events are sponsored in support of the organization that fraternity/sorority supports.
So in short, last week was Chi Omega’s philanthropy week also known as Hootiefest which supports The Make A Wish Foundation of Oklahoma . Throughout the week Chi O had different events in which fraternities competed in order to win Hootiefest. The final event, also the biggest, is always Chi Sing! It’s not your average lip-sync competition (as participants actually have to SING! haha). Fraternities usually go all out for the event with hopes of winning the prized tropy.
Long story short….after days and countless hours of practice and tears, and the freqent use of Red Bull, my fraternity, KAPPA SIGMA, showed up and won Chi O Sing 2011! Enjoy the video below and hopefully you’ll get a laugh from it.
Can we say STRESS!!!! haha But what is college without tons of it. Classes have been killer lately and time has been in short supply, but luckily the semester is coming to an end. Went to Rogers State with my fraternity and enjoyed some ropes course action a few weeks ago and got some team building accomplished. All in all that weekend was short but eventful.
I feel bad for not posting anything all month. So I will incorporate everything into one post. (Don’t worry, it will be short)
First up was homecoming. For those of you that don’t know, homecoming is also Parents Weekend at TU. So along with alumni, the campus is bustling with parents and family coming to see their college son/daughter. For the freshman, this event is really exciting especially since the last time some may have seen their parents was months ago when they moved in! So TU makes sure to have a weekend filled with awesomeness. Friday night is the bond fire and Saturday is the tailgate out on the New U with a lot of free food, shirts, and other merchandise for all to enjoy.
Unfortunately I missed the bond fire, but I’m sure fellow bloggers have pictures and stories about the festivities. I did make it to tailgating and the game on Saturday. Not much to say about the football game because we WON!!! Pretty good game, the Golden Hurricane bruised up the Mustangs pretty bad.
That same weekend was also Halloween. Even though it was a Monday night, my fraternity decided to throw a party. Everyone came out in their costumes and it turned out to be one of the best Halloween parties I’ve been to. I was the Big Bad Wolf and I forgot to get a pic with Little Red so maybe next year…
October went by pretty fast, especially at the end. Only a few more weeks till thanksgiving break. Can’t wait.
TU was also randomly visited by the C-SPAN bus.haha.
What up internet peoples. Nice to know you found TU’s Admission blog (with relative ease I hope.) I’ll just introduce myself since I’m a noob in the blog business. My name is Zack and I’m a sophomore here at TU. My major has recently changed to Nursing (hecks yeah!!!) and I’m involved with quite a lot on campus. But I won’t bore you with the specifics.
Let’s see…well classes started a little over a month ago and the first round of exams hit pretty hard for everyone. Let’s face it; we all love our classes and professors until that first test. Then when you realize you should have been studying instead of watching Two and a Half Men or Glee.
I don’t want to take all your time, so I’ll wrap it up for this first entry. From time to time, I’ll update you on what’s happening on campus, and even in my collegiate life. I’ll also try to leave a vid or pics. The Grand Opening of our new Lorton Performance Center took place a couple weeks ago. So enjoy the video as I pay homage to the fine arts. Until next time…
