Community Service

One of the things I have always wished I could take a part in is Habitat for Humanity.  I never had the time required to be an active member of the Habitat group on campus, but I had the great opportunity this month to spend a Saturday morning working on a build.  I am not a morning person, to say the least, but we all got up bright and early and headed to the build site.  This was the sixth Saturday that they worked at this site and all of the girls that were there manned up to do some heavy lifting.  We drilled these orange “huggies” to the roof so that when people put up the singles they have something to support them if they were to start slipping.  We also nailed beams to the roof and metal hurricane brackets to each beam connecting the roof to the wall.  It was actually really fun and my favorite part was getting to use a nail gun!





Even if building houses isn’t your thing and you still want participate in some sort of community service, TU makes it so easy! It is never hard to find a project to plug into; the only hard part is choosing which projects you can commit to with out over committing yourself!

Photography at University of Tulsa

I want to preface this post by saying that I’ve never taken a photography class in my life. The only camera I was familiar with was the one on my iPhone.

However, this semester I took a photography class and it has been very enjoyable. TU offers not only digital but also black and white photography (which is what I’m currently taking). The class teaches you the basics of using a 35mm camera and how to take black and white photographs. Sounds simple but you’ll quickly learn that taking a photo, developing the film, and lastly making the print is a pretty extensive but rewarding process. I’ll be sure to show off some of my better prints once I finish the class this semester. TU offers many interesting classes like these and I encourage anyone currently at TU or considering coming here to check them out. College is a time of learning, so why not learn something new?
