Reinvent Yourself!

2014-06-12 16.45.52Did you see that?  If you blinked you may have missed the past 5 weeks shooting past us at the speed of light!  But you know what they say – time flies when it’s the second semester of your senior year and you’ve decided to do EVERYTHING that you’ve always wanted to do at TU, but always made a lame excuse for in the past!  Yes, folks, it’s true!  These are my last few months at this fine university (*cue ‘awwws’ here*).  But don’t despair!  I have come such a long way and you better be sure I’m going to go out with a bang (*cue cymbals*)!

How to describe senior year?  Exciting, terrifying, thrilling, nerve-wracking, surprising, exhausting, invigorating, exhausting, melancholic.  It’s basically like feeling all the feelings you’ve ever felt, all at once, along with some new ones that you never felt before. If you’re a senior in high school, you probably catch my drift! I’m at a fork in the road after a long journey, and I’m about to start an adventure that leads to a destination that doesn’t even exist yet! Continue reading

Q&A with…Haley A.

09-03-14 University Ambassadors-109Today’s Tuesday with Tulsa is a Q&A session with Haley A., a sophomore communication and psychology major from Sand Springs, Okla.

What is your favorite thing about TU?

TU is my home away from home. My time at the University has not only allowed me to grow as an academic, but also as a leader, friend, and individual. I honestly cannot think of just one single thing that stands out as my favorite part of TU, but rather a multitude of daily moments that reaffirm my choice in being here. The gratification of studying so hard for a test, or meticulously perfecting a paper, cheering in the student section at sporting events, random trips with friends to get ice cream, or even just walking across our campus, are just a few of the simple things that add up to what has been an amazing experience. My time at TU has been unforgettable, and I know that the memories I’ve made will be long-lasting.

What is your favorite TU event or organization and why?

My favorite organization is Student Association (SA). SA is a student-led organization that plans most of the events on campus. SA facilitates an active collaboration between the student body and University Administrators. Students have an active voice on campus that is well received by the University. It is a great feeling to play an active role in the progress of our University and to know that you made a difference. Continue reading
