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.
I always love when my family visits campus. I get to live the Tulsa experience every day, but for them, it’s a special occasion to be here. This past weekend was Homecoming and Family weekend at TU, so naturally we were all so excited to spend the weekend together. My parents drove from Norman on Friday night and made it in time for a quick dinner at The Hut Cantina on campus and TU’s annual Homecoming bonfire and firework show. They were blown away and kept mentioning to me, “Wow. My school never did anything like this for our Homecoming.” I was pretty proud, and pleased that they enjoyed one of my favorite TU traditions as much I did. My brother flew in from St. Louis that night, so we made our way to the airport to pick him up. The next day was all about tailgating and football. That game against Rice was so suspenseful, but Tulsa came away with the W! Later that evening we celebrated my mom’s birthday at a Mexican restaurant in downtown Tulsa’s Brady district. I love my family and I love TU. Getting to combine two of my favorite things into one weekend was awesome. I can’t wait for this time next year to roll around!
Hello My name is Elaine, and I am a Freshman here at Tulsa. I am from St. Louis, Missouri. My Major is energy management currently. I am also hoping to double major in elementary education. Also, in my MIS (managment of information technology) class the other day a woman came and talked about majoring in MIS, and I thought it sounded really interesting becasause she talked all about working in groups and thinking about new inovative ideas. It was quite fascinating so I might minor in that. I’m glad I have time to decide. I am also part of the rowing team here. I walked onto the team, and it is a large time commitment (20 hours a week) but I think I would actually be really bored without it. I also joined a sorority when I got here. I just joined because I thought it woudl be a good way to meet people. I never actually planned on joining, but the first night I just clicked with a couple of the girls in my house, and I decided that it would be fun to try. There is also a girl in my house who is on the track team so during philanthropy weeks we go to dinner after practices, which is good support.

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.
