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.

Gregory

This school is best known for engineering.

Summer

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!

Tulsa University is best known for its overall academic excellence. TU is one of the most premier research institutions in the country, and is highly sought out for the petroleum engineering program. It's also well-known because it is a private school that is located in what used to be the oil capital of the world, which a good portion of TUs majors fall in line with that career field.

Leland

Being located in Oklahoma, the petroleum engineering program is very important. I'd say that the largest concentration of foreign students is in the Petroleum Engineering program. That seems to mean, to me at least, that our PE program has a fair amount of renown world wide. Second to that, I'd say the other engineering schools, and then Computer Science, which is home to the very well known Cybercorp program.

My school is known for its great engineering program. About 52% of our student population are engineers. We have students from many different countries.

Being tough academically. The proffessors expect a lot from their students, I wouldn't have it any other way.

Probably for the high quality of instruction, given the small size of our school. TU offers a private education, so it's quite expensive, but it still offers the most "bang for your buck." TU is in the top 50 business schools, has an exceptional engineering program, and is noted for its success in the athletic world. It's a small school, but a great one.

This university is best known for its wide range of major/minor opportunities, organizations, and extra-curricular activities relative to its small size. The faculty and staff are friendly and helpful, most are published and have doctorates. While all of the colleges here are esteemed, business and science/engineering seem to be the largest and most developed. There is much school spirit, especially when it comes to the football team, which has nothing but exciting winning seasons. The numerous campus apartment complexes are very nice as well. Plus, the city atmosphere is fun to explore.
