Video Blog – TU vs. OU

09-03-14 University Ambassadors-109Today’s video blog comes to us from Haley A., a junior Communication major (and Psychology minor) from Sand Springs, Okla.

Last weekend, the TU Golden Hurricane traveled to Norman, Okla., to take on the nationally-ranked Oklahoma Sooners. Haley watched the game at The Hut, TU’s on-campus bar and grill. Student Association hosted a watch party so Haley decided to post a video blog to show you how students were supporting the team. Although TU lost 38-52, the Golden Hurricane put up a good fight!

5 Things To Know When Considering TU

Katy 2Today’s blog post comes to us from Katy Riojas. a senior Mechanical Engineering major from Kansas City, Mo.

So if you are a prospective TU student, what do you need to know?

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at TU and have learned so much in the last few years – some things I wish I would have known upon (or before) arrival. In typical engineering style, I have listed below what I consider five key points I think you should know before arriving on campus.

So many opportunities

As with anything in life, college is what you make it, and TU is no exception. The number and diversity of clubs, events, teams, and general activities for you to get involved with is incredible. In my last three years at TU, I have had the opportunity to be involved with the TU Women’s Soccer Team, Make a Difference Engineering, Tau Beta Pi Engineering Society, STEM-UP, The Little Light House, and much, much more. If you are motivated and have an interest, you can bet other people will help you make it happen. I have been able to perform undergraduate research as a freshman, play soccer throughout Europe, give a TEDx talk, obtain one internship in Pittsburgh, PA, and another in Tulsa- all through TU and the opportunities the university provides. TU sets you up for success and ensures you will succeed.

TU’s campus was buzzing with possibilities. As students, we understood that we were part of something special. The originators. The generation of students that would remember both where TU had been and where it was going.

Witnessing growth is a pretty spectacular thing.

The campus you’ll see when you come for Tulsa Time, or a tour, or moving in for your freshman year, is much different than the campus I first stepped foot on four years ago. Buildings have sprung up, dining options have been added, new colleges and programs have been created, clubs have been chartered.  Change is happening all over campus. And we, as students, get to take on this growth as both a challenge and an exciting opportunity.
