Today’s Tuesday with Tulsa blog post comes to us from Kyle R., a junior accounting and economics double major from Leawood, KS.
Ni hao! While some people took Spring Break as a time to go to the beach, visit family, or work ahead on homework (okay, it’s highly unlikely BUT you never know!), I traveled with my International Business class to China, the land of rich history, culture, and growing business opportunities.

I couldn’t go home for Spring Break this year because I had rowing practice. It was great to be rowing because in the beginning of the week the weather was really nice, and I just enjoyed being out on the water! However, the best part of the break for me was being able to see my parents! I am very close to my parents and not being able to see them in nearly two months has been hard because last semester I somehow managed to see them every month. Anyway, they came to visit me at the end of spring break! We had so much fun because we got to explore Tulsa.
We went to the Gilcrease Museum, and to some of the restaurants that I had heard had amazing food, and went shopping! In case you were wondering some of the best places to eat are: McNellie’s, Mod’s, The Coffee House on Cherry Street (as I have said before), Tally’s, Elote Cafe, The Brook, and The Phoenix. Although we only went to McNellie’s and Elote Cafe while my parents were here, I would recommend all of them! There is a lot of great food in Tulsa.
The Gilcrease was really cool too because students get in free, and it is always fun to look at new exhibits. It is slightly different from the Art Museum in St. Louis (where I’m from) because the Gilcrease has more art and artifacts from the American West. I also had fun shopping at the mall, but my mom said that her favorite place to shop is still Utica Square (which is really convenient because it is so close to campus). I really enjoyed having my parents here, and I look forward to seeing them again.
The countdown has begun! Spring break is in 10 days! WOOOOOO! I am so excited for some time with no classes–these past few weeks have been so stressful for me. It’s been midterms/papers/persentations galore, and I am in much need of a break. I’m heading home to St. Louis for the first time this semester (it’s amazing how little I go home nowadays…I never want to miss a weekend in Tulsa!) to get all of my spring clothes and then next Friday it’s off to Florida with my pledge class in my sorority! We’re staying just outside of Panama City at a really nice resort, and I’m so excited for some time in the sun! The weather’s been pretty good there lately, so I’m hoping it holds up for when we head down there. It will be a MUCH needed vacation, and I am so ready for it!
I’m also really excited for next Monday, because that is the day when I receive my LSAT scores. I’m SO nervous, but I’m also really excited to see how I did. I’m anxious to start the whole process of visiting law schools and deciding where I want to apply, and these scores will determine whether or not I take the LSAT again to try to better my score (how I would love to not have to take it again…). I’ll keep you all updated on how things go, and next time I’ll be able to write all about my spring break! Until then, hopefully the weather is as nice where you are as it is in Tulsa right now so that you can enjoy the beginning of SPRING! =)
