Things to do in Tulsa this week

Here are some fun places to see
and events to attend in between
classes this week.

As college students, classes and work
tend to take up most of our week and by the
time we get a break, we end up wasting it
on trying to find what to do. It is important
to let our minds take a break from the text-
books and take a breath of fresh air. Here
is a list of fun things nearby to check out
this week to give yourself a well deserved
Gathering Place
The Gathering Place is a beautiful park
that is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. everyday.
It is a great place for any student to enjoy.
The massive park is filled with various
activities for all ages such as the Discovery
Lab, skate parks, bike and walking trails,
playgrounds and gardens. In addition to
these amenities, the park also holds guided
Try out the Fall Fitness Series every
Tuesday at 6 p.m. The Gathering Place
holds an outdoor fitness class called
“Barre3” which is described as a full body
work out that combines cardio, condition-
ing, strength and mindfulness. This is a
great way to stay active while stepping
away from campus for a little break from
Kendall-Whittier Farmers Market
Every Saturday from 7 a.m. to 11 a.mThe
Kendall-Whittier Farmers Market is held
right next to the Kendall-Whittier Library.
This is a great way to start your weekends,
by grabbing some fresh products from local
businesses. This farmer’s market is only a
10 minute walk from campus too, so if you
do not drive this is still a great place to go
off campus. Even if you don’t buy anything,
it is a welcoming environment for anyone to
enjoy. She Brews Coffee House is also on
the same street, so you could grab yourself a
nice coffee with your student discount.
Hurricane Thursdays
If you do not want to leave campus,
there are plenty of events you can attend
right here. Hurricane Thursdays are weekly
events here on campus hosted by the Stu-
dent Activities Board. This series holds a
new, free and fun event every Thursday for
all students. Last week’s event was Burgers,
Buckets and Bags, where students could eat
free burgers from Society Burger, grab a TU
bucket hat and play cornhole. Stay on the
lookout for this week’s Hurricane Thursday
Kendall College of Arts and Sciences

On Friday Sep. 15 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.,
Kendall College of Arts and Sciences is
hosting their Welcome Back cookout on
Dietler Commons. All students, faculty and
anyone affiliated with the TU community is
invited to come out and enjoy free food, mu-
sic and games. This is a great way to meet
faculty and other students studying the same
subjects as you, especially if you are part of
the arts and sciences college.
TU vs OU football game
On Saturday Sep. 16 at 2:30 p.m. our
football team will be playing against OU on
campus. If you were planning to attend one
game this whole semester, this would be the
game to go to. The stadium will be packed
as this is the first time since 2009 that Chap-
man Stadium is sold out. This Saturday
afternoon, step away from your textbooks,
grab your friends and head over to the sta-
dium to watch some football.
