Thoughts After 3 Months At TU

IMG_0331Today’s Tuesday With Tulsa comes to us from Leonardo Landivar, a freshman Petroleum Engineering major from Bolivia.

Before coming to Tulsa, I had no idea what to expect. I always heard that Tulsa is a pretty calm and quiet city without many temptations, which makes it a perfect place to study. As days went by, and classes started, I noticed that TU was exactly what I was looking for.

First of all, small classes make things so much easier and “elite” when it comes to learning. The teacher knows who you are by name and you are not just one of the bunch as in other universities. Professors are always available and willing to do anything to help you with whatever you need. People around here are so friendly which really makes me feel like I’m at home. Thanks to the Greek life at TU, I have met even more friends, friends that I now consider family…a family on which I rely and always trust.

Playing soccer, ultimate frisbee and going to the gym can be the best medicine after a long day of studies. Football and soccer games are also another great part of TU. There is so much school spirit present that you actually feel connected with the university. And that is a feeling which is impossible to describe.  In the end we are all TU, and TU is the best university ever!

So far I have been away from home for three months. I can say that time has passed really quickly and that there are already some great memories that I will never forget. I can’t wait to see how the next four years are going to turn out. If the first months were awesome, then the future will be even better!

GO TU!

Tulsa became my home away from home very quickly and the idea of spending one of my eight semesters in a different place didn’t seem like something I really wanted or needed to do. As time went on I came around to the idea of being adventurous and leaving TU for awhile. I have loved my experience abroad and I can’t believe how quickly it’s gone by. There are definitely certain things I miss about campus life, but I got to experience some of them this weekend!
