| As an English major working on a journalism certificate, I appreciate the experience I have had thus far at TU. The English faculty is wonderful - very approachable and interested in students' progress. Both the lower- and higher-level courses that I've taken have been rewarding and have definitely taught me to look at literature in new ways. |
The extracurricular groups are very welcoming to new students and offer a myriad of opportunities for greater involvement if you are interested in taking a leadership position. The social life is all right - there have been several new bars, clubs, and cafes popping up in the surrounding areas since my freshman year, which gives us a nice change from the frat houses and on-campus parties.
The school seems rather singleminded in its push to rise in the national rankings. The constant construction can be a huge pain. However, despite this administrative attitude, I think the faculty and staff do a good job of catering to students' needs. It's easy to develop quality relationships with professors (which will be good for my law school recs!) and I have always felt like a valued member of the university community rather than a "number."All in all, great experience. Would definitely return if I had to repeat my undergrad.

| I feel TU is overpriced and definitely not worth the money. After a year, they seem to not care about what students want. As a former senator, I saw the administration basically say that what commuter students wanted was not important to them even though they represent a good portion of the student body. The student body is not diverse, unlike what the university tries to pride themselves in. The Greek System is alright and the social life is alright, but its nothing to boast about. Some students are friendly, but everyone is really similar. The school isn't very understanding and they are more concerned with making it into an ivy league school- which is near impossible. They should be concerned with giving students what they want, since we pay so much to go here. |

| I went to high school and spent most of my time in the suburbs of Kansas City, so I thought I knew what the mid-west was like. But it turns out I was wrong. Tulsa is the most conservative, closed-minded, bible thumping, grease chugging, y'all saying, sarcasm/humorless place on earth and going there for a year has honestly been the worst decision of my life. I spent most of my time there thinking about how much I hate it and how badly I want to transfer. Meek is the best way to describe the vast majority of the population there. They have no sense of humor and they act like they're 12. I went to one girl's birthday party and we played board games... In short, if you love Jesus and fried food go here. If you have even a slight liberal leaning you will be the odd man out here. |
