Sports Are Highly Supported – University of Tulsa is a private school, and is in a division where sports are not all consuming, yet are highly supported and watched. The athletic facilities and athletic center are extremely well kept and updated. You never feel like you have to fight for a piece of equipment and students are always respectful of the equipment. The athletic department treats the athletes well but not to the point of spoiling them. They are kept at high standards and excell not only in their sport but in acadamia as well. There are not the typical athletic stars skating by in a communications major, skipping class, and borrowing answers. They are usually more on top of school work than some non-atheletic students. It is quite impressive!

Small but Mighty – While the sociology department I am in only has 4 professors, they are amazing! These are the most challenging classes I have taken at the University (classes for my business minor...well, let's just say I studied the night before and got straight A's-- the business college was a giant waste of time and money, given that I learned absolutely nothing in my 30+ hours of courses, and got all A's.) Workload in sociology is pretty heavy compared to other college courses, but not too bad when compared to the IB courses I did in high school. In fact, my first two years of college were incredibly easy compared to high school. I wish our department were larger so there could be a greater variety of classes-- it seems as if the money at the university goes to every other program first. I will say that within the sociology department especailly, there are fantastic internship/job opportunities. The professors know all of their students and really take an interest in them; they absolutely help us build our futures. I've had professors write recommendations at the last minute, go over resumes and entrance essays with me, recommend programs to me, give me advice on future opportunities, and all at the drop of a hat. The classes are small enough that the professors not only know you by name, but know practically everything else about you. They are downright amazing as educators, and as plug-ins to a professional network that is essential for your future.

Apartments Are So Much More Affordable Off Campus! TU requires two full years living on campus for your freshman and sophomore year, unless you choose to live at home. I am now a junior and I love living off campus! The apartments, duplexes and houses that are for rent around TU are so wonderful! All of them were built in the 20's to 30's and have a really great vintage feel at such an affordable price. My main concern was the age and upkeep of these vintage gems, but if you do enough research and planning you can easily find an affordable renovated house/apartment/duplex. Many students though choose to live on campus the whole four years. TU has many apartments and they are all very, very nice! Although it costs more, people love the convenience!
