Students Say

For the many satisfied undergrads here, University of Tulsa, a small private research university, is the total package. After all, it combines "the friendly environment of a smaller university and the academic, employment, extracurricular, and service opportunities of a larger university." It also does a tremendous job of fostering an atmosphere that's "conducive to collaboration and growth." In general, students describe the academics as "challenging." And a number of undergrads emphasize TU's "strong engineering school," which thoroughly prepares students for "work[ing] in the industry, especially [within the] energy [sector]." All undergraduates, no matter their major, benefit from "small class sizes." In turn, this affords students the opportunity to build "close relationships...with [the] faculty," full of professors who "are great resources for [both] internships and real-world advice." Aside from being great contacts, Tulsa professors are often "very knowledgeable and passionate about their subjects." They also "make their students a priority" and they're "very accessible outside of class." As one student expounds, "Many of my professors frequently invite students to their office hours and remind us of their availability....[It's clear they] care about my academic experience, career readiness, and about me as a person."

Students Say

The student body at University of Tulsa is comprised of "friendly" and "inclusive" individuals. Of course, it probably helps that the school is home to "a diverse group of students from various economic, academic, religious, political, and ethnic backgrounds." Indeed, "Division I athletes, international students, military veterans, sorority sisters, petroleum engineering majors, and piano performance majors represent a few of the many groups woven together on TU's campus." Undergrads are "committed to doing well in school": As one student explains, "We are all here to do well, but we are here to do well together." Undergrads also describe their classmates as "smart," "engaging," and "extremely focused on their studies." And most "are incredibly involved at TU, whether it be in Greek life, athletics, music, [or] research." Additionally, a lot of "TU students look for opportunities to challenge themselves and impact their community." One thrilled undergrad sums up the campus experience, "TU honestly feels like a small town community. Everyone is so friendly and kind, and it's like having one giant family."

Students Say

While University of Tulsa undergrads do admit that "a good portion of [their] time is...spent studying," there's still plenty of fun to be had outside the confines of the library and/or classroom. For example, "there are a ton of active student organizations" and you can always find "an event to attend or free food to eat." Popular options include "homecoming...dog petting days, bowling [and] carnivals." One excited student adds, "TU is good about providing events bi-weekly, like S'mores at the Student Union, an outdoor movie, or a play." If the Greek scene interests you, you'll be happy to learn that "the fraternities on campus... usually [host] events Thursday through Saturday." A number of undergrads also love to take advantage of the "many [beautiful] lawns" on the TU campus. And you're sure to find a handful of students playing any number of games, from "baseball [and] football [to] Capture the Flag." If you prefer your athletics to be a little more structured, there's also a "very popular . . .intramural sports [program]." As for hometown Tulsa, "there's a great food, music, and art culture in downtown Tulsa so you can always find something to do." And we're told that "the restaurants here are awesome, small and large concert venues attract all types of artists, and there all festivals of all types throughout the year."

Sustainability

At The University of Tulsa, students are leading the charge on sustainability. At Golden Hurricane athletic events, the student-run Green Team helps the university’s recycling efforts by making sure recyclables are not thrown in the trash. The Green Team utilizes volunteer student groups for the program during football and basketball games. Meanwhile, the Campus dining program is committed to bringing in as much organic and locally produced goods as possible. The program has allowed local dairies and farms to supply an increasing amount of organic foods to TU. The administration is committed to sustainability and has numerous programs to improve the campus’s environmental footprint. Recycling bins and totes are handed out to students, and the university aims to meet LEED standards in its building construction. In the dining hall, an Orca Green Machine helps cut down on landfill waste by decomposing food scraps. All dining facilities completely eliminated trays in 2014. On campus shuttles run on compressed natural gas, and students who want to use a healthy and green transportation option can use one of the 450 bicycles in the Yellow Bicycle Loan Program. The campus-wide recycling program went single stream in 2012.This increases engagement on campus by making recycling easier for everyone to participate. Among the school’s paper-saving initiatives, employees and students are required to utilize direct deposit for transactions and the campus phone directory is entirely online. TU’s “Earth Friendly Majors” include those in environmental policy, earth and environmental sciences, and geology with an environmental concentration.

Campus Security Report

Campus Security Report

The Jeanne Clery Act requires colleges and universities to disclose their security policies, keep a public crime log, publish an annual crime report and provide timely warnings to students and campus employees about a crime posing an immediate or ongoing threat to students and campus employees.

Please visit The Princeton Review’s page on campus safety for additional resources: http://www.princetonreview.com/safety

The Princeton Review publishes links directly to each school's Campus Security Reports where available. Applicants can also access all school-specific campus safety information using the Campus Safety and Security Data Analysis Cutting Tool provided by the Office of Postsecondary Education of the U.S. Department of Education: http://ope.ed.gov/security
