15 Signs That You Go To The University Of Tulsa

The University of Tulsa is home to about 4,000 students. Every day, we walk to class surrounded by genetically cloned trees and think about how we wish that Chick-fil-A was open for breakfast on campus. Despite the that issue, TU students are proud Golden Hurricanes. Here are some signs that you go to this awesome school.

1. You know to avoid ACAC around noon.

And the Benvenuto line? So. Dang. Long.

2. You also know that it's not technically ACAC anymore, but you refuse to call it ACSU.

3. You know that PE doesn't stand for gym class anymore.

4. You know that there's no prettier view than a Tulsa sunset behind the skyline.

5. You know the adorable/somewhat creepy love story between Lottie Jane and John Mabee.

"Nothing can be built between the two halls...so they can eternally stare into each other's eyes..."

6. You've had to explain what a Golden Hurricane is to outsiders hundreds of times.

It's a dust storm. I don't know why it's our mascot.

7. You understand the fact that TU is the University of Tulsa, not Tulsa University.

8. You realize that Goldie is probably the biggest celebrity on campus.

You saw her and got a picture? #goals

9. And that Stead is a close second.

10. You have a love/hate relationship with the caf.

But Saturday and Sunday brunch will never disappoint.

11. You have a strictly hate relationship with TU wifi.

12. You don't know why but when one printer is out at the library, they all are.

^^something like this.

13. You're happy about low gas prices but also understand the negative implications for many of your friends who plan to work in the oil industry.

14. You own a hurricane flag even though you live in landlocked Oklahoma.

Just like this guy's.

15. You either lived through or heard horror stories about the cricket invasion in 2013.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
