Officials’ statements against walkout misguided

The teacher walkout is a demonstration of the freedom of assembly, a right which should not be berated by state officials. The Oklahoma teacher walkout continued throughout the last week as teachers fought for more education funding. After receiving a pay raise of 6,000 dollars and 50 million dollars toward school funding, teachers continued to […]

Amazon employees working on the picking floor are already under tremendous amounts of pressure, and the inclusion of wristbands tracking worker movement would only increase stress. courtesy Flickr

Amazon wristbands symptom of harmful work culture

By attempting to increase company profit, Amazon has put the wellbeing of its employees at risk. Amazon has secured a patent on wristbands that use vibration to guide warehouse workers’ hands to items needing to be processed. Though Amazon was granted the patent back in January, the company has yet to introduce the tech to […]

Legislative Digest

The Legislative Digest is your weekly look at the happenings of Oklahoma’s state legislature, and the bills and politics you need to know. Oklahoma’s legislature will outlast our semester. That’s no measure of how productive they’ve been, of course. As ever, the purpose of this article is not only to convey news and reactions to […]

Game Theory a valuable life experience

A course in Game Theory teaches students the science of strategic interaction and changes their perspectives on the world. Did you know that if you and a partner are caught robbing a bank and the police take you in for questioning, you’re both better off saying nothing, even though the advertised penalty for not ratting […]

Letter to the Editor

As the Collegian editor-in-chief who published the first the Improve TU issue back in 2014, I’m very proud to see the overall strength of this year’s edition. I am, however, quite disappointed in article #20: “D1 athletics drains Golden Hurricane.” The idea of TU moving to a lower level of athletic competition (where less money […]

Letter from SA

First off, I am humbled that the student body has put faith in me to serve as the SA Presi- dent for this upcoming year. I stand by what I said on my platform: SA will become more efficient, innovative, and sustainable. In order to achieve this, we are going to need help. We need […]

Satire has shaped the way I view news

I’ve never really felt like my time here at The Collegian has been a job. While yes, I do get paid for it, and yes Kayleigh would have yelled at me if I ever decided not to do my work, I rarely felt coerced into working either from the prospect of money, or the fear […]

My Collegian career and other curiosities

The most important lesson I learned about journalism didn’t actually come from “The Collegian” (oops). It came from a girl I met during study abroad. Her name was Cassidy and she was spectacularly curious. Not curious as in “strange,” but curious in that she wanted to know everything about everything. She would ask street vendors […]

A lifetime of growth with TU

I was basically born at TU. On my second day alive, my dad brought me to work with him in McClure Hall to show off his newborn daughter to his co-workers. When I was a toddler I was dressed up in a tiny Tulsa Cheerleader costume to attend home games. In middle school I spent […]

Four years later, four years smarter?

So because I’ve written for this amazing publication for four years, being a news editor for a year and managing for this past year, I get to write a goodbye letter that about five people, and hopefully not my parents, will read. And instead of being sappy and getting sad, I’m gonna talk about the […]
