University of Tulsa Reviews

The University of Tulsa is a good school with high standing. Of the schools that make up the university, I can speak of the ENS and A&S schools, which both had a very good and helpful counseling staff. I will say the university made the switch between colleges very easy, and this year has been extremely successful.
One issue I had with The University of Tulsa was that some of the professors organized their curriculum poorly so that study was difficult, and learning became very unintuitive or stressful in some classes. Less of this happened in the Arts and Science college, but it's still something to look out for.
The other issue I ran into was with getting transcripts and other official documents for outside scholarships. Deadlines were a real struggle to organize at times, and some services do not have very clear instructions.
All in all, a good school with few problems!
Review Your College
The University is a fantastic place for those who are desiring a rigorous college experience. But it's not all just rigor. There are countless opportunities to join clubs, activities or other groups that will get you connected with like-minded people. It is a relatively small school, which offers each student a greater chance to get connected with their peers and professors and create an academic environment specific to them. While I am still enrolled at the school, I have learned an incredible amount inside and outside of the classroom. There is a wide cultural diversity which has presented me with opportunities to step out of my comfort zone and make new friends and learn about new places, religions, and cultures. They make studying abroad easy, which is important to many students. I do wish that there was a bit more of a variety of classes offered in the Art department. There are a good amount of solid classes, but a wider choice would be welcome.
I love the University of Tulsa! I am a very academic student, and TU's academics are perfect for me. The professors are always willing to talk and try to help each individual student. The smaller classes allow that to happen.
