We are so excited to see students back on campus! We celebrated the Class of 2017 (over 860 students) on Monday at the Matriculation Ceremony. Even Goldie participated in the ceremony!
It was so rewarding to watch our new students file in to Reynolds Center. We couldn’t be prouder of this year’s freshman class, and we can’t wait to see what they accomplish at TU. Good luck, freshmen!
We are just as thrilled to see our returning students come back, too. The Admission Office has welcomed back several of our University Ambassadors and our work-study students, and campus is swarming with bright faces and proud families (I just saw a dad walk by my office window, wearing a TU t-shirt and carrying a giant clothes tub on his head). We hope everyone has a great week moving in, and good luck as you start classes next week.

Orientation is right around the corner! If you haven’t registered, click here.
I wanted to let you all know there will be a freshmen-wide Harvey chat this Wednesday, August 1st at 10pm central time about orientation.
What’s Harvey? Our online learning management system. You have probably logged on by now…but if you haven’t, check it out!
To log into Harvey, go to harvey.utulsa.edu enter your username and password (this is the same username and password as your email address, without the @utulsa.edu). The chat should appear under your calendar and be labeled as “Harvey Orientation Chat”. All incoming freshmen are encouraged to join so orientation leaders can answer any last minute questions and so you can meet other freshmen!
If you’re having trouble with logging in using the username and password, you can call the IT office at (918) 631-3500 or email email@example.com.
We can’t wait to see you on campus in two weeks! Better start packing!
from student blogger Quinn…
So this is technically my first post as a senior at The University of Tulsa. I’m excited, but also kind of nervous to be graduating at the same time. I was also an Orientation Leader once again this year. This year my group was the Superman Group! Once again, we dominated the other groups in activities such as the Hurricane Classic, Scavenger Hunt, and dodge ball. Unfortunately we didn’t place (I think I will demand a recount). Aside from the awesome time that we had all week, one of the highlights for me was the community service that we did at Kendall Whittier. It really was an enriching experience. My job was to read to third graders, and then take them to gym. I had forgotten had much fun elementary school was. Although we were only at Kendall Whittier for an hour or so, I really got to know the kids that I worked with. I am definitely considering volunteering there in the future.
Classes are going ok now that my professors have finished going over syllabi. I’m only taking 15 hours this semester so it shouldn’t be too tough for me. The next few weeks I’ll be busy applying for jobs via Golden Opportunities. Golden Opportunities is a website that career services manages that allows students and employers to connect. It’s a really good website that allows students to search for internships, part-time jobs, or even full-time positions. After these next few weeks are over I’ll finally know where my life after TU will begin.
