Need a hobby? Consider joining a club

The University of Tulsa has a wealth of clubs to offer; here are a few of the highlights

Every fall semester, the University of Tulsa hosts an activities fair showcasing active organizations and various activities students can participate in to decompress and regroup following a stressful day of classes. Some organizations are resume worthy. Unfortunately, the spring semester brings us no such fair. It seems a little odd not to have a fair since there are incoming new students for the spring, so here is a list of some clubs and activities students may find interesting. For a more complete list, check with the Student Association at the student union.

• Tulsa Thought Initiative

In addition to clubs and organizations, TU regularly invites authors to visit campus for readings in support of their work, both old and new, providing a perfect opportunity for anyone interested in writing to speak personally with published authors about their experiences and how they became published. Students and families are welcome to readings. There are also plenty of research opportunities for ongoing research with faculty or students may undertake research in their own areas of interest and receive assistance through the TURC (Tulsa Undergraduate Research Challenge) program. More information for TURC may be found online at

Finally, if you’re looking for more community involvement there are community-based programs aplenty. As an example, Veterans Treatment Court is a program developed to mentor and assist veterans who are struggling with substance abuse, mental health and homelessness. Information for this and other community involvement opportunities can be found on the Community Service Council’s website,
