Student Opinions About Studying in Tulsa

“You have to go to the Gathering Place, it’s the biggest and most impressive park I’ve ever been to. I’ve been living here half a year and I haven’t been able to see the whole city yet, because there’s so much to do and see. For a bigger city, the locals are surprisingly friendly and approachable.”

“Tulsa is a safe and peaceful place, and I think it would be a good place to raise a family. The cost of living is cheaper than other places which has been helpful in my case because studying at the University of Tulsa is the first time I’ve lived by myself. I’ve met lovely people here and there’s always something interesting to get involved with.”
