Arkansas Game

I went with the band for my first out of state college football game. It was a great experience. I’ve never been inside a stadium so big and the Arkansas fans were very dedicated to their team and their spirit was astounding. We did not let them outdo us though. Though we were not the full size band we played louder than their band, which outnumbered us at least 10 to 1. I’m so proud to be a Golden Hurricane! Despite the loss the game was great and I’ll remember it for a long time.

The Perfect Balance

Maybe I’m a little biased, but I’m convinced Tulsa has it all. Academic focus and impressively high rankings on a national level, but also campus involvement, school spirit, and division 1 athletics that contribute to all of my favorite parts of college. The Tulsa family grows stronger every year with the new freshman class and it serves as a great reminder of the benefits of attending a small school. Everything from small class sizes, to our campus community makes TU something I want to always be a part of. We won an exciting football game today, so maybe that’s what is making me so sentimental about my school, but I’ll keep this brief. Hearing the roar of the football stadium chanting GOLDEN HURRICANE back in forth in a tense 4th quarter was absolutely incredible. We defend Tulsa and are dedicated to everything it stands for. I couldn’t be prouder to be a part of something so strong. Plus, campus is beautiful, and that doesn’t hurt one bit either.

Unexpected Joys

I tried to learn a lot about TU as a prospective student. I did my research, attended visit days and had even picked out certain organizations I wanted to be involved with if I were to become a student. Now that I’m a sophomore here at the University of Tulsa, I don’t have to research the university anymore. I get to live it everyday. Here are a few unexpected joys that as a prospective student I never saw coming.

You’re looking at a view of the TU intramural field. I wasn’t much of an athlete in high school (just ballet and golf), but thanks to this on-campus activity I’m able to cheer on friends playing flag football one month and play soccer the next!

Good news, folks! No. 1, there’s a Chick-Fil-A on campus. No. 2, I have this really awesome friend that uses her dining dollars to treat me and a bunch of our friends to a free lunch on occasion! It rocks.

Concerts at Cain’s Ballroom are a Tulsa Tradition and the tickets are pretty cheap! Definitely something special about living in Tulsa that I didn’t expect.

And finally, I would have never guessed that I would make it on the kiss cam at a men’s basketball game in my lifetime. Especially with David Letterman as the recipient of the kiss. Ask anyone that was at the game on Sunday though. It happened!
