TU Treks is a student organization that is designed to get students off campus and outdoors! We go camping. We play paintball. We jump at Sky Zone (which isn’t outdoors, but still a great time) and most recently, we went to Chandler Park to go rock climbing and geo-cashing. In case you aren’t familiar, geo-cashing is an activity in which people plug coordinates into a mobile device and then use those coordinates to find hidden treasures other geo-cashers have left behind.
And the rock climbing was amazing! You didn’t have to be an experienced rock climber to participate.
Going into the trip I didn’t know any. But by the end of the day I had met some really great people!
TU Treks also takes a spring break trip each year. Last year, the group went to San Antonio and visited Sea World where they got to pet the dolphins. This year we are going to New Mexico where we do some hiking and take a tour of a ghost town in Albuquerque.

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
One of the great things about TU is how culturally diverse our campus is! This past weekend the Chinese Student Association celebrated the Chinese New Year and held a Spring Festival. They had catered Chinese food (which was delicious) as well as a talent show. The acts ranged from traditional Chinese dancers to an awesome game of charades (which is always funny despite the fact that I know little to no Chinese). Overall, it was a great night making new friends and eating some amazing food!
