1 College Freshman

Transportation: Transportation off campus is terrible and inconvenient

3 College Freshman

Facilities: It is outdated but they are working to improve it

3 College Freshman

Transportation: The free shuttle service is unreliable, though I've been told it's easy if you learn the routes. I never need a car when traveling to places on campus, but anywhere off campus I simply ask a friend to drive me. It's not that big of a problem.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love my choice because TU fits my personality. I love large cities but grew up in a small-school environment. TU will be a great fit if you're willing to accept it for what it is: a small Division I school with a lot of heart for education and a large city on its front porch.

Majors: For the TU School of Music, I had to audition for the music school separately from the university itself to see if I applied for scholarship and to see if I had the talent. I got a full-ride scholarship and was notified of my reward after I got my letter of admission to the university.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I absolutely love my major. The Music School is passionate, dedicated, and hard-working. They demand excellence from their students. They're also on the rise here at TU, so I'm expecting great things for the future of this program.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Greek life is a mixed bag. For sororities, the bonding between girls seems really good for most of the houses, but some girls choose to make it their priority and neglect their non-Greek friends. For guys it's kind of the same way. The chapter houses for frats are kinda run-down, but that's because they're hosting parties on a regular basis; they're not that bad really. The sorority houses are pretty nice but not that big.

My summary: TU Greek life is what you make of it. You can choose to be a total jerk and hang out with just your frat buddies, or you can use it to live by a moral code. For the frats, the former is almost always the case unfortunately. For the sororities, the latter is much more likely. I'm gonna take this opportunity to shamelessly plug the non-house frats, especially Phi Mu Alpha. They're much more genuine guys than the others.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: I love going to football and basketball games. I just wish more people felt the same way I did. I think supporting fellow students who are participating in Division I athletics is important and just courteous, and we're not bad most of the time. But most students on campus would rather study all the time or just laze around in the dorms instead of walking two or three minutes (depending on whether you live in Fisher South or elsewhere) to Chapman Stadium or the Reynolds Center. If we're really really good, then student attendance will pick up. But if not, it's mediocre at best. Luckily our athletics program has a ton of wealthy elderly donors that pay out the wazoo to keep our facilities and scholarships top-notch. You'll see a ton of older people at games because of that. School spirit is so-so.

3 College Freshman

Campus Dining: If you have dining dollars and Gold Dollars to spend, that's probably your best bet to get Chick-fil-A and other decent meal options on-campus. The Pat Case Dining Center (the Caf) is okay, but not the best because obviously it's a small cafeteria. We're getting a brand new food court in ACAC as of the fall of 2014, so that'll improve things a lot in terms of on-campus dining options. We're getting an Einstein Bros, Panda Express, and others.

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: It honestly depends on what you're looking for. Frat row has alcohol aplenty, depending on which one you go to of course, and other than that there's not much unless you're looking for actual clubs, which I do not go to.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Tulsa is a really fun town. There's lots of great dining, shopping, and cultural options. The only thing is that you probably need a car to get to most places, but at TU it's not hard to have or find a friend who is willing to drive you if you can't.

3 College Freshman

Weather: Oklahoma is a fickle mistress. One day in March, it's wonderful and 70 degrees. The next day it's snowing. Overall, expect hot summers from June to August, and cold winters from November to February.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Overall, TU is a place of learning. They know it and make sure that every student is here to learn. They offer very good programs in almost all areas, but the focus here is definitely on engineering. Music students just got a new building. I'd say the most disadvantaged major here would be music theatre, and the most advantaged would be petroleum engineering.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I do not live off-campus, nor do I intend to, so unfortunately I'm not the person to ask about off-campus housing.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: The area around the University of Tulsa is relatively rough. The neighborhoods are slowly improving, as are the retail areas around campus, but it's still not what I'd consider the safest. Luckily, Campus Security is extremely reliable. They may be berated a bit by students for being a little overzealous with parking tickets, but it's a small price to pay for the fact that if you call them they'll be there in two minutes or less every time without fail. They make me feel safe to walk freely around campus, which I do all the time.

4 College Freshman

Majors: Internships come aplenty thanks to being a PE

3 College Freshman

Athletics: No school spirit involved with varsity sports

Weather: It's beautiful here. I wish it didn't snow as much, and it's always windy
