As many of you might already know, Fisher South is the all-freshman residence hall at TU. I have the great pleasure of working and living there. Seriously… it’s the best place on campus!
I’m convinced that some of the coolest people on campus work in the building, although I may be a little biased. But, what is even cooler than the staff are the programs which are put on for the building. Since the hall is all about the freshmen, Fisher is responsible for the First Year Residential Experience or as it is commonly referred, FYRE (pronounced FIRE). These programs are typically geared towards giving the freshmen an opportunity to get off campus, get to know Tulsa, or get them plugged in with different things around TU.
Recently Fisher South went to the Oklahoma Aquarium as a FYRE program. It was the first time I had been to the aquarium here in Tulsa, and it was a lot of fun! One of my favorite animals to watch were the jellyfish, even though I am actually really scared of them.
There was also this really cool exhibit where you could crawl in a little door and then stand up in this little cubbyhole and look at the fish from inside the tank. It was suppose to be meant for kids but we crawled in there anyway
There is also a shark tunnel that created perfect picture backdrops. You just get to watch as sharks swim all around you.
I was really sad when we had to go but, the trip was a lot of fun, and rumor has it that another FYRE trip will be a day at the Tulsa Zoo! Until next time!
