Finals, do or die

One of the most feared aspects of the ends of college semesters are finals. Finals can range from papers, projects, regular tests, cumulative tests, or just a test worth more points than usual. It definitely is not someone to ignore. I found dead week and finals week pretty boring here on campus. Everything shuts down and people spend the days sleeping late and studying in their rooms or in the lobby. My finals were not that bad, but they definitely needed studying. Too many students’ college finals are something completely new to them. Most panic as they ruffle through half-kept notes and illegible worksheets that have become folded up in their backpacks, or flipping through the text books trying to figure out which parts of the book will be tested over. As an IB diploma student, I felt well prepared to study and found that I knew exactly what was going to be on each and every final. College studying is all about efficiency, and throughout the year it served me well to keep notes well-organized and do whatever I could to make it as easy as possible to review everything. Now I’m all done, and I’m very happy to have the rest of the month off!

Two Dinners and Lights

Today was wonderful! How coud it not be when you have two dinners?  I had a final in the morning.  It was my last final, and it went well.  Then I went to lunch at the caf with some friends.  After that I went to the gym with my roommate.  Next I went out to Subway with my friends, but I didn’t eat anything because I knew I would be having two later.  My first dinner was at the Hillel House.  We celebrated the fourth night of Hanukkah (and ate latkes and some really good cookies that have nothing to do with Hanukkah.)

The Menorah!

My other dinner was at my friend’s house.  She is from Nebraska and apperently pizza from Nebraska is the best so we had some, and I have to admit that the hamburger pizza was amazing!  Although I am a sucker for desserts, and for dessert, they had homemade ice cream and brownies.  Everything was so good! :)

The last thing we did was go to Rhema Bible Church in Broken Arrow (a subarb of Tulsa).  They have two million Christmas lights on dispthat are so pretty.  They had a bridge of lights that was very cool.  The trip there was definately worth it!

Fun times

After our football team became Conference Champs students were allowed to rush the field and congratulate them in person before we all sang the fight song!


It was fun seeing the student section full during Tulsa Time with all the prospective students. We really want you to come :)


Just a typical TU Saturday…2 Basketball wins (Men beat TCU by 1 pt and the Women won their game).

Former TU Football players who are graduating in December came by and acted as “Security” for our philanthropy event.
