Today’s Tuesday with Tulsa blog post comes to us from Mackenzie S., a sophomore petroleum engineering major from Littleton, Colo.
When I came to college I didn’t knowwhat extracurricular activities I wanted to do. I wasn’t very involved in high school and on all my college visits I was asked if I would want to participate in intramurals, so I knew that that was always an option. But it wasn’t until orientation week that I heard about Student Association (SA) for the first time. Continue reading
Spring is on its way! These past couple of weeks have been very busy, as I’m sure most of you can understand. One of the events the Student Association (SA) puts on is Springfest, which is a week of fun activities that give us things to look forward to when finals are quickly approaching. This week is Springfest, but last week is when the SA got the Imagine Dragons to come and play for us which was pretty amazing! TU students got in for free which is an extra bonus! They also sold over 4000 tickets to the public which meant there was a huge crowd! My friends and I were the first people at the barricade and Dan Reynolds gave us all high-fives. We also shared a moment during Underdog
, when he pointed to me and sang the verse while I sang along and our eyes locked. I know realistically this doesn’t make us best friends but I like to imagine it does! It was an awesome night with an amazing band of really genuine guys! Springfest is this week and the theme is “The Wonderful World of TU,” so an example of some of the fun events that will be taking place are, Lilo and Stitch Luau, Mulan Training Camp, Princess and the Frog Mardi Gras Carnival, Toy Story Pizza Planet Arcade, and Cinderella Carriage Rides with the Cinderella Ball later that night! Lots of activities and lots of fun is on the agenda for this week here at TU!!

Also for the encore they all came out wearing TU t-shirts and they said they wanted a piece of TU and Oklahoma to take back with them, which was incredibly cool!:
At the end of the concert they gave the set list to Jennifer, who lives in my suite, which as crazy! Just in case you’re wondering what they played here it is!:
Every spring, the Student Association (SA) puts on an event called service day. Students sign up to be a part of a group with any organization they are involved in, such as a sorority or fraternity, a campus ministry, or an academic club. (I signed up with Society of Women Engineers.) All the groups are divided up and put on buses to different organizations around town. I had friends who went to food banks or animal shelters. I got to go to a church and help with things there. A bunch of us girls were set to organize and clean out a storage room. Being awesome and strong, we carried like six TV’s, a couch, different cabinetry, and lots of sound equipment. While this may not sound like the most enjoyable way in the world to spend a Saturday, it is actually a ton of fun! A lot of the campus is involved in the different service projects and we all have a blast together. Plus we get fed breakfast and lunch and get a free hoodie and t-shirt! Sick!
Look how hard everyone is working!
We're worn out, but oh so proud of our progress
