Throwback to Orientation week

I know it’s been a few months since new students moved to TU and participated in orientation week, but I’m about to get all nostalgic on you anyway. Being an Orientation Leader was absolutely awesome. I love this school and I loved helping freshmen learn to love it too. Now here comes the part where I brag about my group. I had the esteemed honor of leading The Goonies. We were quite a diverse group with students represented from all across the country and even world. Despite meeting each other for the first time on move-in day, this group of freshmen enthusiastically forged friendships and actively participated in all events. They formed a sand volleyball team and in thrilling, Cinderella story fashion took home the gold. Obviously group cheers and this victory picture were necessary. These people even threw me a birthday party! As the weeks have gone on they’ve joined campus organizations, taken on leadership roles, played intramurals and continue to eat together at the Caf. I have loved seeing their growth and the many ways they have made TU their home. Most importantly I love that orientation week is what brought them all together.

Goonie Love and Go TU,


Volleyball champions

Dances in College

The dances are probably what I am going to remember the most clearly about my four years in high school: not necessarily the dances themselves, but the getting ready, taking pictures, and being around people that I love. After my senior prom, it suddenly hit me that I would never have anything like that again – or so I thought.

However, I was wrong. In the month of November, I went to a fraternity’s semi formal and my sorority’s formal. Honestly, both of these were more fun to me than high school dances were. I think it might have something to do with the fact that it’s a smaller group. My high school had 2,000 students, and, although not everyone went to the dances, it was never a small group of people, and sometimes the huge crowd took away from the overall enjoyment of the dances.

On top of that, Tri Delta had our formal at the Aloft Hotel in downtown Tulsa. It was a beautiful venue, and, on the drive over, I got to see parts of Tulsa that I had never seen before.

I’ve moved on from high school, but I’m happy I don’t have to give up the dances just yet!
