Hi everyone! Today I am going to tell you about one of my favorite places on campus, the Collins Fitness Center.

So the best thing about the fitness center is that it is the perfect place for anyone on campus. You don’t have to be a body builder to be there! It has cardio equipment, a track, an extremely nice weight room with state-of-the-art equipment, basketball courts, locker rooms with showers, and a cafe/lobby area featuring Starbucks Coffee.
I took the liberty of getting a job here so that I can tell you more about it! We keep extremely clean all of the time. I personally clean all of the benching and squatting equipment every Thursday and vacuum every Monday.
For those of you who don’t like to work out the gym is also a great place for people watching. There is a wonderful cardio area set up on the second floor overlooking the weight section. You can just set yourself up on a bike and watch everyone that comes in.
I’d like to end this post by introducing a friend of mine, Keston.
Keston had this to say about the Collins Fitness Center, “I love it because I get swoll there.”
Well folks, that is all I have for now. Thank you for reading and I hope to see you all out here soon!
McFarlin Library is a popular place for not only students who need to do some studying but also those in search for a great place to sit and chat. With the wonderful coffee shop inside and an awesome view of the downtown Tulsa skyline outside, McFarlin Library is a fantastic place to meet up with friends!

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.

The Henry Zarrow Center for Art and Education, located in the Brady District in Tulsa, opened to the public yesterday. The first floor houses a gallery for exhibits from Gilcrease Museum, TU graduate art students, and guest artists. The second floor includes classrooms for art education outreach, and TU graduate students use the third floor as studio space. We can’t wait for the upcoming events!
This weekend, TU celebrated the grand opening of the Roxana Rózsa and Robert Eugene Lorton Performance Center. The building is absolutely beautiful!
The 77,000-square-foot Performance Center, designed in the style of grand European opera houses, features a 700-seat concert hall with full performance stage, rehearsal and recitals halls, practice rooms and faculty offices for the School of Music and Department of Film Studies.
On Thursday night, there was a Gala celebrating the opening, and then on Friday and Sunday there were a number of performances by TU students, alums and special guests. These weekend performances were free and open to the public.
I think I need to go back to school to study music. Too bad I’m tone-deaf.
