Introducing: the bonfire. Homecoming was this past weekend, and one of the highlights (quite literally) is this raging torrent of flame and fury. Stretching from the once-flowerbed floor to the crest that nearly licks the stars, this fire provides enough light and heat to power a small planet. It draws onlookers from far and wide to marvel at its intensity

Pretty impressive, eh?

Homecoming Tulsa Style

I always love when my family visits campus. I get to live the Tulsa experience every day, but for them, it’s a special occasion to be here. This past weekend was Homecoming and Family weekend at TU, so naturally we were all so excited to spend the weekend together. My parents drove from Norman on Friday night and made it in time for a quick dinner at The Hut Cantina on campus and TU’s annual Homecoming bonfire and firework show. They were blown away and kept mentioning to me, “Wow. My school never did anything like this for our Homecoming.” I was pretty proud, and pleased that they enjoyed one of my favorite TU traditions as much I did. My brother flew in from St. Louis that night, so we made our way to the airport to pick him up. The next day was all about tailgating and football. That game against Rice was so suspenseful, but Tulsa came away with the W! Later that evening we celebrated my mom’s birthday at a Mexican restaurant in downtown Tulsa’s Brady district. I love my family and I love TU. Getting to combine two of my favorite things into one weekend was awesome. I can’t wait for this time next year to roll around!

From California to Oklahoma to TU

Hey TU admissions blog readers, my name is Sebastian and I am a freshman at the University of Tulsa. Let’s get the boring stuff out of the way first. I’m originally from California but I moved to Oklahoma when I was around 9 or 10 so I’ve spent equal time in both places. I originally wanted to major in Computer Science but then I became inspired, like in the movies, and now I’m majoring in Graphic Design.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the 8 or 9 years I’ve spent in Oklahoma and the only thing I can say I really miss about California is In-N-Out. If you don’t know what In-N-Out is, follow these instructions. Get in a car, drive down to San Francisco (specifically the San Francisco In-N-Out, there is no substitute) go to In-N-Out, order a Double Double Animal style and Animal Fries. Once you’ve done all that, proceed to eat the glorious food in front of you, experience heaven and then come back to Oklahoma so you can go to TU. In all seriousness though, I’m excited to be a new blogger for TU’s admission blog and I look forward to sharing my experiences with you all.
