Hey everyone! My name is Kat, I’m a freshman and I am thrilled to be writing for the University of Tulsa Admissions Blog.  I’ve spent a little over two months here and I’m so amazed at everything new I’ve experienced.

A little about myself: I am currently living in Fisher South dorms (the co-ed freshman dorms), I’m a pledge in the Chi-Omega sorority, I’m interested in studying Communications as a major, and am over 1,500 miles away from my home in Boston.  Boston is a city filled with amazing schools, an abundance of culture, and one you will never be bored in.  So when my friends first heard I was interested in leaving my beloved city to come to a school so far away all I heard was, “But why Oklahoma…?”


I saw this view when I first came to TU for Tulsa Time last spring and I fell instantly in love.  The students and faculty’s welcoming nature made me feel right at home.  When I learned about all the amazing in and outside of classroom opportunities, I knew this was the place for me.  I have already met so many great people, am ecstatic about my decision to come here, and cannot wait to see what the next 4 years here have to offer!

My first post!

Hi everyone!

My name is Anna, and I’m a new blogger for the University of Tulsa Admission Blog. First of all, I want to say how excited I am to be blogging. I’m a current freshman at TU, and I’ve already gotten the opportunity to do so many cool things, this blog being one of them.

Second, I just wanted to give a few basic facts about myself. Like I said, I’m a freshman at TU, and am LOVING it so far. It’s been two months now, but, to be honest, it feels like I’ve been here my whole life. I’m from a suburb of San Francisco, so I am a LONG way from home… 1,720 miles to be specific. The only hard thing about my transition into the college life really is the distance; other than that, it’s been pretty easy for me, especially since everything about TU is really welcoming.

My classes so far haven’t been too hard, which is encouraging and worrying at the same time. Part of the reason for the ease, though, might be that I haven’t declared a major yet. I know I’m in the College of Arts and Sciences, but that’s about as specific as it gets. Now that I’m halfway through the semester, I’m thinking I might want to double major in Elementary Education and French, but we’ll see what happens with that…

Once again, I’m really excited to be blogging and I can’t wait to post more!

A Place to Visit: The Guthrie Green

This marks my second year at TU and with that second year comes a whole new wealth of knowledge. Lucky for you readers, I am willing to part with that knowledge. There are tons of fun and unique activities to take part in on campus but there’s a whole bevy of things to do outside of the University of Tulsa as well. Downtown Tulsa is a robust and busy area, rich with art and community (and it’s only 3 miles away from campus) that students can take advantage of while attending TU. Downtown Tulsa is home to locations like The Guthrie Green, an outdoor performing space and garden. Every week they show classic films, have concerts, host fairs and all kinds of great activities (and it’s usually free too). In the past week alone I’ve been to The Guthrie Green to see a movie, visit a technology fair, and see a hip hop concert. The Guthrie Green has a little something for everyone and I encourage all TU students to take advantage of this unique location.
