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.

The University of Tulsa Reviews
Aside from academics, the food on campus is DELICIOUS with a wide variety of flavors to choose from. If you decide to not eat on campus, consider taking a 5-min drive to downtown Tulsa or down Route 66 where there's an abundant amount of restaurants, attractions, and shops to visit! The dorms are decent and old and the walls are sorta thin.
The campus has over 100 organizations and clubs to choose from, and, through this, you're able to observe the diverse student populace.
TU is going downhill quickly. In 2018, the acceptance rate was around 40%. It's now up to 70%-- close to OU and OSU. Sacrificing the quality of students to keep the university afloat. I seriously question how some of my peers were accepted. It's embarrassing and disheartening. There is no "prestige" to TU anymore.
Not to mention the fact that the social scene here is nonexistent. If you want to try Greek life here-- don't. It's a joke. And TU is becoming really good at hiding SA/r*pe cases and allegations between fraternities and the athletes. Of course, athletics is treated like royalty here, because they're all that we have going for us. Professors let athletes sit in class maskless while us regular folk have to wear them, as mandated.
TU is overpriced and overrated. Wish I had gone somewhere else.
