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.
