#3: Don’t let students park in the lots they paid for … ever

TU is already doing an amazing job of making student parking more complicated than it needs to be, but with some careful planning, all student vehicles could be off campus by 2021. Listen, the University of Tulsa, I see you out there. I gotta say, I really like what you’re doing. Not letting students park […]

#4: Replace all grass on campus with $1 bills to reduce water usage

To conserve water, we should just replace grass with cash. Students have voiced their concerns for years now: our lawnspace is ridiculous. The university must spend at least a billion dollars on plant care, and students do not want their tuition to go toward a bunch of oxygen-producing leaves. Think about how much we would […]

#5: Replace ACAC with Caf 0.5

TU students are craving more food from the Caf and would much rather have a second Caf than ACAC. Almost every week ends with not enough meal swipes and too many dreaded dining dollars. However, the location of ACAC is so convenient to students that they are forced to eat at these popular chain establishments. […]

#6: More 8 a.m. classes, maybe even 7 a.m.

An increase in the number of 8 a.m. classes students are required to take will improve the quality of lectures, modernize student fashion and have no ill effects on campus mental health. The beloved 8 a.m. makes its way into the average TU student’s schedule once a year or so. Some lucky students get to […]

#9: Make campus less accessible for all students

Students are far too free to just walk around campus willy-nilly. Here are nine ideas to prevent students from getting around campus. The University of Tulsa campus stands as an example for mediocre accessibility. To solve this problem, the school needs to put in the effort to be extraordinary; we must make campus less accessible […]

#8: Make dining dollars great again

Dining dollars don’t have enough buying power, specifically buying power for prescription drugs. Since the beginning of dining dollars, students have wanted more uses out of their meals. First, it was for access to the fast food services on the edge of campus. Next, it was to buy alcoholic beverages at the hut. Now, it […]

On-campus speakeasy run by Campo

The more alcohol the better, say undercover Campus Security officers. All names have been changed to protect the identities and location of the participants. Slowly, we wind our way down the tucked-away stairs in a crevice of Kniz Hall. Leading me, I have Sam, a Campus Security Officer, First-Class. His pomaded hair skims the ceiling […]
