TU Midstream Club Student Chapter (TU Midstream)

We are a group of motivated students from the College of Engineering and Natural Science at the University of Tulsa, who wants to develop a working relationship with the Midstream Industry. The TU Midstream Club Student Chapter is dedicated to furthering the education and understanding of petroleum transportation, storage, and sales. All of which make up the midstream sector of the petroleum industry.

We are looking to establish a professional network with members of the Midstream Industry. We organize events for: (a) Learning about new technologies, (b) Professional networking, (c) Attending industry conferences. We promote and organize facility tours to Midstream companies (pipeline operators, consulting groups, service companies, etc) in the State of Oklahoma. In average, we have four facility tours at companies locations, and two on-campus lunch & learns per semester.

Society of Physics Students (SPS)

The Society of Physics Students (SPS) is a professional association explicitly designed for students and their advisers. Membership, through collegiate chapters, is open to anyone interested in physics. The only requirement for membership is that you be interested in physics. Besides physics majors, our members include majors in astronomy, chemistry, computer science, engineering, geology, mathematics, medicine, and other fields.

SPS is a chapter based society that exists to help students transform themselves into contributing members of the professional community. Traditional coursework develops only one range of skills. Other skills needed to flourish professionally include effective communication and personal interactions, leadership experience, establishing a personal network of contacts, presenting scholarly work in professional meetings and journals, research experiences, and outreach services to the campus and local communities. Through its members, advisers, chapters, and leadership, SPS enables national initiatives and local impacts within the community. SPS supports students, advisers, and departments to improve the overall community.

Locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally, the SPS offers the opportunity for these important enrichments to the student’s experience.

TU EMS

The TU EMS club gives students first-hand medical experience. The long-term vision of the club is to run a 24/7 medical on-call unit that would work with Campus Security. Campus Security, in a medical emergency, could then send students over or take care of the situation. The club has had CPR/first aid training for their officers and is planning how to operate on campus. In the future, the club plans to host CPR/first aid training twice a semester, potentially with a subsidized cost, as well as medical seminars twice a semester, detailing topics like how to deal with alcohol poisoning. To maintain a 24/7 service at a university this size, the team will need about 45 to 50 people.

Mathematical Association Of America (MAA)

The Mathematical Association of America is the world’s largest community of mathematicians, students, and enthusiasts. We further the understanding of our world through mathematics because mathematics drives society and shapes our lives.

The mission of the MAA is to advance the understanding of mathematics, and its impact on our world.

Society of Global Professionals

The Society of Global Professionals hopes to help international students find jobs after graduation. The club plans to have info sessions with career services, talks by TU alumni with jobs that take them abroad, visiting representatives from industries not always seen at TU and job application roundtables. In roundtables, students will search and apply for jobs together. Renan Kuntz, the president, was motivated to start the club because finding a job can be difficult after graduation, and collectively, students may be able to achieve more than separately.

The club also hopes to dispel the misunderstanding by companies that international students need sponsorship to continue to work in the U.S.

Optional Practical Training and their student visa allow students to stay another year, and STEM majors can stay another two years. After this time period, if the company has an international location, the students could relocate there.

“If we show employers that TU is the place to hire such unique professionals, we will see our alumni doing great things and occupying important roles outside the U.S.,” Kuntz said. He hopes this club will assist TU in creating globally ready professionals.

“With an international student population of twenty-five percent of our campus, affordable and available study-abroad programs and internationally-renowned research programs, TU students have the best environment for developing skills for the global market,” he said.

For their first event, they hosted an immigration specialist from the International Student Services office to tell students about applying for the Optional Practical Training. The next event will be a resume/cover letter/LinkedIn training. Any students interested in global careers can join the club by reaching out to their email, sgputulsa@gmail.com.
