McFarlin Library is vast, and it's rare book section has a nationally known James Joyce collection. Beautiful campus, with many sports venues: Reynolds Center Arena, Case Tennis Center, Chapman Stadium,... More

We had a great tour of the campus, and then later in the evening attended our niece's wedding in the chapel, it was a beautiful venue for the ceremony.

As a TU grad, I have always loved this campus (it's beautiful no matter what the season) and rich collegiate history. McFarlan library is gorgeous. TU gives the back east ivy leagues a run for their money, but that's just me, a proud grad!

I am a university professor in New Jersey, and I can assure you that the guy from New York who referred to the University of Tulsa (TU) as 4th tier has absolutely no idea what he is talking about. Outside of one New Jersey school (Princeton), one Connecticut school (Yale) and a couple of New York schools (Columbia and NYU),... More

If you want to pay 4 times the tuition that you'd pay at Oklahoma's flagship state schools in return for a diploma from a school that no one outside a 100 mile radius will have heard of, go for it. Say "OU" to someone in Manhattan or LA and at least they'll have heard of the Sooners and Anita Hill.... More
