Student Ambassadors

One of the best ways to learn about all that TU Law can offer you is to speak directly with a current student. Our student ambassadors are eager to answer your questions – about law school, their experience at TU Law and what it’s like to live here in Tulsa. They come from various parts of the country and have a variety of backgrounds and interests in law. Feel free to get in touch with them at law-ambassadors@utulsa.edu.

Why You Chose TU Law: Being a generational Texan, I wanted to pick a law school that felt similar to home, but still different enough to offer new life experiences. My time in Tulsa so far has illustrated the typical values you think of when you think of Texas. Everyone here is friendly, down-to-earth, and eager to help when someone is in need. The generous scholarship opportunities offered, small class sizes, and close proximity to Texas were appealing benefits when deciding what law school I should attend, but what truly solidified my decision was the people I met who composed the student body. When meeting individuals who currently attended the law school, it was obvious to me that they were not only happy at TU Law, but that they genuinely cared about and cherished the relationships they had formulated with their classmates. Now that I am a current student, I can attest that the friends I have made here have made my law school experience incredibly special and even more worthwhile. I am proud to attend TU and feel fortunate I get to surround myself with people who truly care about people.
