Today’s Tuesday with Tulsa blog post comes to us from Kyle R., a senior accounting and economics double major from Leawood, KS.
Being from Kansas City, when I first considered the University of Tulsa, I honestly considered the city of Tulsa to be a small-scale version of KC without the Chiefs or the Royals.
