Booker T. to Tulsa U

Buenos dias, Konichiwa, hello, my name is Andres. I am originally from San Antonio, Texas, but I have lived in Tulsa for 8 years now. I am a graduate of Booker T. Washington High School Class of 2012 and an IB Diploma Scholar. I’m currently a freshman here at TU and my major International Business and Language-Spanish.I have long been exposed to TU, as they have worked with me since I was a junior in high school. Truthfully TU was my first and only choice for a university once I nailed down what I wanted to do with my life, and TU did I fine job of assuring me that such was the case.

I’ve found myself completely immersed in campus life as well as other exciting activities. I’m a member of the Sound of the University of Tulsa (the marching band), a pledge member of Phi Mu Alpha, and Big Band Jazz. I’m sure you’ll hear more from me throughout the year. I’m looking forward to posting more.

I’m the with the curly hair. This was at the Phi Mu Alpha pinning ceremony.

A Tulsa area school, the Tulsa School of Arts and Sciences, lost its building to a fire earlier this month. Eight Tulsa firefighters were injured fighting the fire, which started accidentally in the TSAS building. TSAS students and staff lost their school supplies and equipment, along with the building itself, after the accident.

The TU community has been rallying together to show their support and collect supplies for TSAS students. This week, we delivered the supplies to TSAS (temporarily set up in another building), along with some treats to cheer them up. We want to thank everyone who donated and wish the TSAS community the best of luck as they continue their school year.
