Q&A with… Carly C.

09-03-14 University Ambassadors-160Today’s Tuesday with Tulsa is a Q&A session with Carly C., a senior Political Science major from Tahlequah, Okla.

What are your plans following graduation in May?

I have accepted a job in the Denver area that will start right after graduation in May. I’m working for a mining company doing contracts, procurement, and inventory control in their supply chain department.

What is your “happy place” on TU’s campus?

My happy place on TU’s campus is wherever I can hang up my hammock. Or Chapman Commons where we play some intense games of soccer during the warmer months.

How has TU prepared you for life after college?

TU has provided me with a great understanding of what it takes to be successful. Not just academically- but how to work with people, be a good leader, take advice, and develop my creativity. Working with professors, having leadership roles in a variety of organizations, and school projects have been the gateway.

What advice do you have for high school students searching for the perfect school?

When looking for a school, it’s important to realize that most of the ones you’re interested in will all have great academics, qualified professors, and fun activities. You must look deeper into it- where will your professors will have you over for dinner, is campus a small community where you can make friends that become family, and is personal attention a priority for helping make you successful. That place is Tulsa!

I began looking into schools in the Northeastern region of the country. On paper, the schools I researched were amazing. But none of them gave me a feeling of absolute certainty. The University of Tulsa was never even on my radar until my dad convinced me to attend a “Junior Day” event on campus. After visiting campus that day, my outlook changed completely; I realized that finding the perfect school for me was more about meaning than miles. Continue reading
