The best thing about TU is that since it's a small school, everyone is really close to you and everything is easily accessible to the students living on campus. The only thing I'd like to change is that the transport service within TU is kinda slow and I'd like to see a major change in this system. TU is just the right size that any student would want. People are impressed when I say to them that I go to TU because TU being a small sized school ranks 91st all over the nation and for a school like TU's size being in the top 100 schools list is really something to feel proud about. Since I'm a Petroleum Engineering student, I usually spend my time at Keplinger Hall (Engineering and Science building) and at times I catch up with friends at restaurants located on campus or just any place where we can get together easily. TU's administration is very strong, updated, accurate and very precise. The latest controversy of misery is what I should say was when TU lost a student who died due to an overdose of drugs and he was a freshman student, class of 2011. But, keeping all the controversies aside, students at TU have a lot of school pride. During football and basketball matches, the students just go wild to support TU its players. Students mostly wear TU t-shirts and other accessories that bear the school's pride. Since I am only a freshman student, I haven't come across any unusual things in and around TU. One experience that I'll always remember would be the geology field trip that I had in a near by location in Tulsa where hiking was a bit risky but a whole lot of fun. Students most frequently complain about the cafeteria's food and the transport service on campus.
One's academic career at TU is really challenging and full of experiences. Professors at TU do know my name and not by my ID number. My favorite class at TU was Calculus-II but, I haven't had any least favorite classes yet. Students do study all the time but when its fun time, no one sacrifices fun over books. Class participation was highly appreciated in my classes. The Engineering and Science students keep themselves updated with all the news and other upcoming things happening in the science stream and discuss those with their colleagues and with their professors.
The Best Things
Small sized and everything is easily accessible.
The Worst Things
On-campus transport service.
