TU designated Military Friendly, Top 25 grad program

News-MFS-Logo-320x200The University of Tulsa has been designated a 2016 Military Friendly School by Victory Media, which helps connect the military and civilian worlds. Now in its seventh year, the Military Friendly School designation provides service members and their families with transparent, data-driven ratings about post-military education and career opportunities.

TU also was designated a Top 25 university for Military Friendly graduate programs alongside schools such as Carnegie Mellon University and Boston University.

Institutions compete for the elite Military Friendly School title by completing a survey of more than 100 questions covering 10 categories, including military support on campus, graduation and employment outcomes and military spouse policies. Survey responses were scored against benchmarks across these key indicators of success.

The Military Friendly School designation is awarded to the top colleges, universities, community colleges and trade schools in the country that are doing the most to embrace military students and to dedicate resources to ensure their success both in the classroom and after graduation. The methodology used for making the Military Friendly Schools list has changed the student veteran landscape to one much more transparent and has played a significant role during the past seven years in capturing and advancing best practices to support military students across the country.

Tulsa Time: Get To Know Us!

IMG_0618Today’s blog post is from Brittany J., a junior Mechanical Engineering major from Lee’s Summit, Mo.

When I was going through the college selection process my junior and senior years of high school, people always told me that I would “just know” which college was best for me. This totally freaked me out. I was determined to research all of the schools in depth, make lists of the pros and cons and endlessly worry about where my future would be. Little did I know, Tulsa, one of my top schools, offered a unique opportunity to help high school seniors “just know” if TU was the right fit for them: Tulsa Time. 

Tulsa Time is an overnight program hosted by the University during which high school seniors stay the night with a Tulsa student to get a better understanding of what a typical day at TU is really like. The overnight stay offers the opportunity to get a feel for the atmosphere on campus and a personal look into the lives and personalities of the current students. The students who host Tulsa Time attendees are very excited to share their experiences. We enjoy being able to show off everything we love about TU and give others the chance to fall in love with it, too.
