From The University of Tulsa

Students at The University of Tulsa, a small, private research university, find it to be the total package. It combines "the friendly environment of a smaller university and the academic, employment, extracurricular, and service opportunities of a larger university. TU also does a tremendous job of fostering an atmosphere that's conducive to collaboration and growth.

All undergraduates, no matter their major, benefit from being assigned a student success coach who will help them transition to TU. Success coaches check in with new students at least once a month and connect them with other offices on campus who can assist with job or internship placement, financial wellness, counseling services or academic advisors. Students at TU are supported from the moment they arrive on campus until the day they graduate and beyond.
