AWESOME!

TU is overall, an outstanding university. Class sizes are just right, not huge and not tiny , and the professors are so helpful! I would definitely recommend this university although academics are a bit challenging they really help you become the best you can be.

Everything you need to know about TU

The University of Tulsa is a very safe place, there are always campus security outside driving around. It is a private school with smaller classes than your regular public colleges, which is a good thing because then you can focus more on class and have more one on one with the professors. They have a variety of restaurants, events, activities. It is a really great school overall, with plenty of friendly welcoming people.

TU = best school ever

University of Tulsa is a fairly small private school. It has a large number of international students and students studying a wide variety of things. It is like a small community, where you can meet a lot of people but at the same time it's still big enough to give you a good college campus feeling. It is such a fantastic school!

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Dear Maiten, You need to learn that fate needs a little help sometimes. Maybe applying to only one University just because you thought it was the right fit for you, wasn't the smartest idea. You got accepted to your dream college, and it was a moment of felicity but then, you realized that it would have been better to have more options. That's not that big of a problem now, because you're already in college, pursuing a career that will make you happy and will aloud you to do everything you always wanted, help people who don't have the opportunity you had while also doing what you love, art. You always stayed very busy during high school, two part-time jobs and college level classes were the best thing you could have done. I appreciate that busy life you had during high school because that has prepared me for very busy days, weekends and breaks during college. Get more involve in things, don't be afraid to stand out for what you believe. Do not worry about what people say, those things do not matter when you're in college, and follow your dreams.

What's unique about your campus?

I absolutely love the relationship between professors and students. I like the idea of being "friends" with the people that are shaping my future somehow.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

I feel like I'm not being challenged enough, most of my classes were fairly easy during my first semester, but I manage to challenge myself during my sencond semester at The University of Tulsa by taking higher level classes.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

The university of Tulsa is best known for the small class sizes. The largest class i have been in was only 29 students. I love the fact that ihe classes are small it gives you and the professor a chance toreally get to know each other versus at a big unversity where you have hundreds of students in one class.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If i could go back in time and talk to my self i would say not to be afraid to take chances and don't get hung up on mistakes. Always put yourself out there and take those shots at what ever because in the end it will help you learn that no matter the outcome of chance you still took it and that is sometimes more than what some people can say. Make those mistakes and learn from them you won't be perfect, but college isn't about being perfect. It is about an education. You will learn from your mistakes so take that as some advice or knowledge.

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about the university of tulsa is the feeling of ome on campus. When you step foot on TU you feel like your right at home. You have that Urban Ivy league feel at such a small university. This is the best thing about the university of tulsa because whe you leave for college you will miss home but if you choose TU you are at home.

Greg, you are about to study Music Education at The University of Tulsa and the most important thing I can tell you is this: do not worry about money. Those friends that are going to make millions--the girl that you want to provide for--these people may not remain with you forever. Through an arduous process you will discover that money alone is not the reward of a good education. The reward of a good education is to ensure your monetary stability while doing what you love! That is the most fulfilling thing you have ever or will ever experience. For all the days you will spend worrying about your major freshman year, there will be 10,000 more days that you are happy simply because you get to go to work. There are places in the world where people do not get the joy of learning music. You live a blessed life. Focus on giving all of yourself to this education and sharing it with others--you will succeed.

Describe your favorite campus traditions.

small enrollment which leads to better one on one time with faculty, staff, professors, etc. I love it and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a large campus to get the full experience but with more of a family type of environment where it's easy to get to know so many people. Also small class sizes!

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

To have studied more while in high school, would defintely be something I would tell myself if I could go back in time to when I was a high school senior. I've worked hard so far in college and I probably would've been happier with scores on tests and my grades even though I did better than I even expected. I have high standards but in high school I will admit I did slack off and I regret that but I'm doing well in college and that is all that matters.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

Some may think that the challenging course work is the worst, which it can be. Sometimes there are professors that expect almost unrealistic things out of the students but its only because they care and want the students to do above and beyond on and in everything they do and discover.

Describe the students at your school.

If there were ever a class that could successfully take over the world and do so with finesse and in a way that appeals to the masses, it would be the University of Tulsa student body.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If there's anything I've learned, it's that now-a-days people love concise lists consisting of things they can relate to. The thing about doing this with pieces of advice is that as you type them out, you realize that a lot of the things you "learn" when you go to college are the things that your parents, older family members, and other influential figures told you for the first 18 years of your life and those cliches truly earned their notoriety. So I would advise myself and whoever else to really listen to the words of others even if it at the time it seems like annoying nonsense or irrelevant information. I can type all I want to here but chances are someones mom, dad, grandpa, grandma, english teacher, gym teacher, lunch lady, cab driver, mailman, whoever, has probably already told you in one way or another. So really the greatest piece of advice I could ever give someone in my opinion is to really listen to those around you. You're either going to learn from following someone else's words or learn from ignoring them and well sometimes one's easier than the other.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

There is something about this school that makes you constantly thrive to better yourself. It's to a point where if you can't meet these standards and goals that you almost lose hope for a future lavish life and want to crawl into a hole that leads to a community college. (Not that there's anything wrong with CC) So really the worst thing about this school is that the faculty and fellow students make you actually believe that you are capable of achieving greatness and sometimes that's just a little too much pressure.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

Don't worry so much. THAT is your biggest obstacle--not tests or projects or papers but a debilitating fear of failure. As soon as you are able to conquer that fear, you will be happier and more successful.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Someone who enjoys small classes, has an interest in engineering (petroleum engineering is the university's specialty), and values academics above sports

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?
