My Take on TU: 5 Ways I Get Involved on Campus

Today’s blog post is written by Erin Jones, a junior Communication and Spanish major from Bemidji, Minn.

BAND
The music program is one of my favorite things about TU! There are so many wonderful opportunities to learn music, strengthen your talent, and highlight your hard work! Through the marching band and pep band, I have had the opportunity to travel to two NCAA football bowl games, as well as March Madness for Men’s Basketball.

TU CATHOLIC NEWMAN CENTER
Coming to college, I knew I wanted to continue practicing my faith, but I was scared that I wouldn’t be able to find a place to call home.  The St. Philip Neri Catholic Newman Center on TU’s campus allows students to strengthen and practice their faith, and it serves as a great place to meet others.

SIGMA ALPHA IOTA
Sigma Alpha Iota is an International Music Fraternity.  Sigma Gamma, TU’s collegiate chapter, is home to many talented women who long to further the development of music throughout the country.  We work together to advance music in multiple ways: philanthropy projects, volunteering in local elementary music classrooms, and supporting one another in our musical endeavors.

MORTAR BOARD NATIONAL COLLEGIATE SENIOR HONOR SOCIETY
At TU, I had the opportunity to join Mortar Board, a prestigious honor society focused on highlighting students’ academic achievements, leadership skills, and service projects.  The organization allows initiated members to meet to discuss how to further our individual academic performances, but more importantly, how to serve others on our campus and greater Tulsa community.

THE UNIVERSITY OF TULSA THEME HOUSE: CulTUring Campus
Through campus housing, my friends and I were given the opportunity to develop a theme house to enhance the campus community.  CulTUring Campus’s mission is to educate ourselves and the campus at large about the diverse cultures around the world.  Due to TU’s already diverse campus community, we as a theme house can engage with a variety of students who attend our events throughout the year.
