"I enjoyed my time at the University of Tulsa. I appreciated the small class sizes and the professor to student ratio. My professors were always available during their office hours to help if I had any questions. There was a writing lab for free that prof read assignments. Game days were also great, and the University of Tulsa gave free tickets to students for all sports. I felt supported in so many ways. University of Tulsa has a safe campus, and many options of jobs in the area. Tulsa is not a college town, its a beautiful and safe city with plenty of opportunities no matter what your preference."

"I had a terrible experience here due to the incompetence of the faculty staff. The instructors and professors were not very helpful. I sent many emails and visited frequently one of my lab instructors but he was never answered. Two of my professors would call out other students and their privates loudly in class. They teaching styles were so ambiguous, I had more help from tutors and Google. One even accused me of plagiarism without checking it through a plagiarism checker and receiving all my drafts and revisions. The financial aid office was extremely disrespectful to me since I had unexpected financial troubles. They only told me I could not attend next semester and shut me out. I had my parents call and speak with the manager in order to get something done. My academic advisor was the only positive experience. She helped me with any general questions I had and understood my troubles as a first-year student. I thought for it being a private school, they would treat their students better than others. That was not the case, since I had a better experience at a community college."

"I was always in love with music. However, due to the competitive nature of a music career, I was reluctant on pursuing a music degree. That's when I found out that the University of Tulsa had it set up where a student was able to get a music degree while taking rigorous math classes. The music program is very close knit, my average class size was 5 people, so I was able to get to know a lot of my professors on a personal level and still text them today. In addition, the small class sizes did not deter me from making connections. Because of the many extracurricular activities and events that go on around campus, I was able to meet many wonderful people. Scholarships were wonderful too: I got a scholarship that covered tuition, room & board, and "dining dollars" which were money to spend on food at the student union. If you are a high achieving student, I would definitely recommend the University of Tulsa for your undergraduate."

"TU is a rigorous university that will test your academic limits. It is very diverse with a wide range of students and clubs/organizations for everyone. The campus is beautiful and very well kept. On campus housing is very nice but make sure you try and get into the updated apartment."

"I truly could not have chosen a better school for pursuing my degree. I had already heard so many great things about the school and throughout my time as an undergraduate, I came to understand why. The professors are all really invested in their students, and really want them to succeed. One of the ways The University of Tulsa does a great job is with the classroom size. The most students I think I ever had in a classroom was about 40 students, but most of the time the average was 20. In this way, the professors got to know the students on a more personal level, which made it so much easier for them to help students with classwork. I always felt extremely comfortable contacting my professors any time with questions regarding classwork, and most of them responded within a few hours. The classes themselves were hard at times, but all of them were full of information I will need to succeed as a speech language pathologist in the near future."

"The University of Tulsa is a great school to go to. They have a high quality curriculum with professors that want you to succeed and are willing to help in any way possible. They have connections with a lot of companies that you can use to help find a job after you graduate, or experiment with internships while you are still studying."

"The graduate program for speech-language pathology at the University of Tulsa has many pros. Coming from a large undergraduate program, I value the small class size and professor to student direct interaction the speech-language pathology program offers. In addition, I am becoming clinically and academically successful. Daily, we engaged in clients and class work which helps us train and implement what we are learning. In addition to clinical and classes we are also developing a research thesis which will be completed upon graduation from the program. I was able to choose a topic within the scope of speech-pathology and will be researching and writing on the topic until the due date in January 2016. Overall, the speech-language pathology program at the University of Tulsa has allowed me to excel in multiple ways and is preparing me to excel in my future career as a speech-language pathologist. The most recognized con of graduate school at the University of Tulsa is the cost of tuition. Being a private college, tuition exceeds that of state institutions. I am currently applying loans to my education, and am searching for scholarship money to help with my financial needs. I would be so grateful for a financial reward to assist me financially. As a graduate student I am unable to hold a job during schooling due to the heavy school load. With tuition, housing rent, and other billing finances, a financial reward would assist me in balancing all my financial needs and using the financial award money towards my graduate school tuition. I could not imagine myself at any other graduate school receiving my masters degree in speech-language pathology. Aside from the expensive tuition, the program has challenged me academically and continues to make me a better future professional in the field. I am grateful for the opportunity to be involved in a great school."

"I loved TU. The campus is big enough that you meet new people everyday but small enough that it feels like a community. The professors care but expect high performance."

"The University of Tulsa offers the best academics of any university in Oklahoma. While they are national leaders in petroleum engineering and international business, they offer extensive education in many more disciplines. The small student body allows for a sense of family, while the Division 1 sports provide excessive excitement."

"Staff is available through set meetings or random office visits. There is VERY little diversity in the law school and there are NO diversity awareness programs being offered or mandatory. This leaves the few minorities looking for ways to fit in, in a culture not developed for them."

"The school faculty and administration are wonderful to work with and learn from. However, the school is not diverse. Although law school is suppose to be competitive, one does not expect to be treated like an outsider because there is little willingness on the part of others to work with those who have life experience and have a different outlook on life. If it were not for the amazing faculty and administration, completing this program would be extremely difficult."

"The pros are the ability to reach faculty and administrators when needed. The cons are the lack of diversity and the unwillingness of students to be open to diverse change. The campus is competitive but because diversity is lacking those in that category are not able to truly compete because the majority refuse to offer the same assistance."

"My experience at TU has been largely positive: a friendly and professional environment, if at times a little too formal. It is primarily geared toward preparing grad students for academic careers instead of providing alternative options, but that's not surprising. However, they do give good opportunities to teach and work in respected academic publications. Overall, I'm very happy to be there and have built strong relationships with faculty, coworkers, and classmates."

"The scholarship scheme when I first arrived was poorly done. So many scholarships were awarded, yet the requirements were designed for almost all recipients to lose their scholarship. The scheme is better now for incoming students, but those of us under the previous scheme are suffering under the weight of massive student loan repayments."

"The art faculty at TU are a very supportive and cohesive group of artists. They work together very well to provide a friendly and challenging environment for exploring art. The department is committed to providing the skills and techniques necessary to be able to express concepts in thw undergraduate program, and the fundamentals in using materials are expected to be already understood in the grad program. Grad assistant ships are offered to most students, however at this time grad students do very little actual teaching. There is a lot of freedom to explore and create with input from several faculty members. A very positive aspect is the almost monthly opportunity to exposure to visiting artists who give individual studio visits and give artist talks."
