What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Tulsa is meant for a specific kind of student, or I should say person. Allan Bloom, controversial political science professor and higher education scholar, once said in his book, The Closing of the American Mind, that a university is meant to cultivate the soul. The University of Tulsa attempts to accomplish this in a new university paradigm where corporatism and administration dominates. TU has a wonderful campus, intelligent and successful professors that work and thrive in a community, rather than compete with one another. Instead of a sole focus on research, TU attempts to reconcile both scholarly work with the development of the next American generation, or, perhaps better said, with many international students, the next generation of mankind. Professors work actively with students to succeed in the classroom, and, to discover a sense of self. College, as William Deresiewicz, former English professor at Yale and author of Excellent Sheep, explicates is meant to also help form the student as they enter adult life. This is distinct from Bloom in that Bloom's thesis argues for this within the curriculum; Deresiewicz argues for this in both curriculum and campus culture. TU also attempts to provide this in its extracurricular activities and its encouragement for community service opportunities within the University of Tulsa. None of this is to say that TU is perfect, because it is not. If you are looking for a place to party, and have a blast before becoming an adult, there are many other colleges that can do that for you. Its sports culture is also incredibly lacking, and some of the buildings that are not science-related need renovations. TU is limited in that aspect. However, if you are searching for a self, and seeking to build the foundation for a meaningful life, the University of Tulsa is the best place to start.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Tulsa is a private institution that prides itself on a challenging academic curriculum as well as a unified community! TU highly encourages philanthropic endeavors as well as becoming leaders within organizations. I have truly loved my time at TU. I know that if I need support I can reach out to my professors or peers and they will be there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The University of Tulsa is a outstanding school! Even thiugh I am not enrolled yet i have visited and seen what truly makes TU a perfect college. Besides the nice campus, TU is a college where you know and feel like a important part of the community, whether it be from the professors, on campus advisors, or the great friends you will meet. TU is my dream school that i would love to attend!

Small School in a Big(ish) City

Coming to the University of Tulsa was definitely one of the top 10 best decisions in my life. While it definitely has the "small school feel," it is located in a fairly large city (metro. 1 mil), so there's always something to do! The academics in the engineering school are extremely challenging, but well worth it. To say you made it out of the ENS college (including, but not limited to, the Tandy School of Computer Science) with a 3.5+ is an incredible accomplishment. The business school is also leading among those in the USofA. AND, if you're looking for great internships, the business college counseling office is the way to go. So, I know you're dying to hear about the social life. It's no state school--in a good way I think--there's definitely a sense of community. While the frat/srat life is available and even encouraged, it's not as necessary to maintain your social status (as maybe OU, OSU, or UofA). The Greek community is definitely among the most involved on campus, maintaining leadership positions in almost every club on campus. It is funny, though, how any Greek will tell you that they have friends in every house on the row--and it's actually true. I can speak from personal experience, that whether you're for Greek life or not, it is possible to have (and hang out with on the daily) friends in every house--and even those who aren't in houses. So what's the party-life like? Well, it's there if you really want to find it, but if you're not into that, there are so many things going on around Tulsa that you don't have to be. There's the First Friday Art Crawl downtown (so fun), Pie Night at Antoinette's, and TU takes care of Gilcrease Museum, so students get in for free! So, really, The University of Tulsa is whatever you choose to make of it. If you want to get involved, you definitely can (it's much easier here than at a state school). If you want to party-out, you definitely can--although I wouldn't suggest it. If you want a 4.0, you'd better work hard and talk to your professors outside of class, but it is possible. If you want to stay in your room all of the time and make no friends, that's also an option, but here's the thing: the people at the University of Tulsa are exceptional. They all have their own stories (most that you would never guess). Get to know them; they're what make this whole college-thing worth it.

Friendliest Place You'll Find

The students at the University of Tulsa are well rounded and kind. When I first visited I was welcomed by everyone with a warm smile and now that I attend here, I am happy to help the future TU students be happily welcomed as well!

Year One

This is my first year at the University of Tulsa and I could not be happier. As cliche as it sounds, it truly was the best fit for me. The balance between academic and social is incredibly easy and there is no pressure to do anything you do not want to. The environment is clean and safe and the professors are always willing to help the students. I would recommend this University to any person looking for a small private school.

The TU experience from a commuter's perspective

I think it is a great school with many opportunities. People are extremely friendly and always take the times to help you. Classes are really good and conversation is always intelligent. No one gets left out and we can definitely feel like at home.

My love for the University of Tulsa

The University of Tulsa is the best university in the nation. The student-body, the faculty, and the staff have been overly generous and extremely easy to talk with and relate. I would strongly encourage anyone thinking about applying, to do so. For me, deciding to come to the University of Tulsa was one of the best decision I have made thus far in my life.
