College students live for two main things: free t-shirts and free food. We are ALL about that F-R-E-E life. Thus, there is no better week in a college student’s life than Homecoming! Not only are there fun shirts and yummy food, but spirits across campus are also soaring with excitement. The University of Tulsa’s Student Association goes above and beyond to organize activities that the entire student body will enjoy, and this year was no exception.
The week began on Sunday night with a Kick-Off party in the Student Union. Groups of students formed a line that snaked around the entire upper floor as they waited for barbeque and the first round of t-shirts. It was nice to see friends that you don’t get to see on a regular basis as all of the different organizations on campus crowded together. Laughs rang through the hall and smiles shined on everyone’s faces in anticipation of all the festivities ahead. Continue reading
Phew! I just finished my first round of exams for the semester and now it’s time to relax, unwind and celebrate! When my friends and I want to escape the stress of school or are looking for a fun place to chill out, we usually don’t have to look much further than some of Tulsa’s best (and in my personal opinion, the best all around- trust me, I’ve been to some pretty awesome places all over the country!) eats! Whether you’re looking for restaurants with yummy food, or a cool ambiance (or both!)… you’ve come to the right place!
If you ask me what my favorite hobbies are I’ll say learning about/ engaging in social justice issues and (a very close #2)… EATING! Thankfully, there’s no shortage of great eats in Tulsa! As your resident Tulsa foodie, I suggest we start with breakfast (or brunch for you fancy-types) – the most important meal of the day. Two of my absolute favorite places are Tally’s Good Food Café and Old School Bagel Café. Tally’s is your classic All-American diner situated on Route 66 (pretty cool, huh?) and it’s where I go for comfort food. The menu is huge, but I personally love to order from the breakfast section (offered at all times of the day, I might add, for when you want breakfast for dinner). Even larger than the menu are the portions – they’re mammoth-sized – getting through a meal at Tally’s for my friends and I is like conquering Mt. Everest! You probably won’t need to eat for the rest of the day (expect a food coma)! Continue reading
Today’s Tuesday with Tulsa blog post comes to us from Hillary S., an energy management major from Highlands Ranch, Colo.
Today I want to tell you about the campus ministry that I have been involved with over the past 4 years – Baptist Collegiate Ministries. Time has really flown by, but here are some highlights of what our group does.
Every Monday from 11am-1pm, all of campus is invited for free lunch in the BCM building! It’s a great way to NOT have to cook on Mondays and to see your friends mid-day. It makes Mondays a little easier to deal with. In the building, we have pool, ping pong and foosball, all which get a lot of action each week. Thursday nights we have a large group meeting where there is a student-led band (even a cellist occasionally!) and some good words from other students and our leader, Brandon. Continue reading
