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.
TU mechanical engineering students designed and built a machine to cut the ribbon at yesterday’s Stephenson Hall dedication ceremony. Mechanical and petroleum engineering students and faculty have been in the building since the start of the school year and are thrilled with their facility.

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.”

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.
Check out their findings…
We are also already busy preparing for the Class of 2017! You can start the application process by visiting apply.utulsa.edu. The Early Action deadline for admission is November 1st, which will be here before you know it!
Have a great year!
