The Student Activities Office works closely with The University of Tulsa Student Association (SA).
SA is responsible for allocating funds, recognizing official organizations, maintaining a record of recognized student organizations, imposing rules and guidelines, and facilitating programs and events for the student body. It represents the cooperative effort of all students and organizations on campus to make college life as enriching and rewarding as possible.
All students at The University of Tulsa are members of SA. Every semester you pay a student fee to help cover the costs of SA-sponsored programming, speakers and services. Some of these events include Homecoming Week, Springfest, Grad Party and concerts.
Here are some of the other perks offered by SA:
- Free admittance to Philbrook Museum of Art
- Free daily newspapers in various campus buildings
- Free legal services
- Discounted rates to local events such as $2 Tuesdays at the historic Circle Cinema and to lecture series and other live entertainment.
To learn more about campus organizations or scheduled activities such as upcoming concerts, comedians, speakers, road trips and other opportunities for campus involvement, contact an SA officer or visit the Student Association Website.
At the beginning of the fall semester, SA sponsors an Activities Fair. Student organizations are encouraged to register for this event, which attracts hundreds of students interested in getting involved.
To assist student organizations in having a successful year, SA organizes a required meeting for all student organization presidents each year. The purpose of this meeting is to become acquainted with other student organization leaders, provide groups with valuable information about available resources and update organizations on any policy changes.
The Office of Student Activities maintains a database of all chartered student organizations known as TUOrgSpace. It gives all organizations the ability to have an online presence and provides many useful applications for individual students and the organizations in which they are involved.
It allows students to search, join or express interest in more than 150 student organizations. It helps organizations maintain communication with SA and its individual organization members, as well as conduct elections, balance organization budgets and promote events.
Student Organization Committee (SOC)
The Student Organization Committee (SOC) is responsible for facilitating the registration of campus organizations, establishing a campuswide calendar, and maintaining an updated list of all campus organizations and their advisers.
Organizations interested in applying for funding must be registered with the SOC.
Organizations are required is to maintain an updated database entry in TUOrgSpace with their current leadership and contact information.
Co-Curricular Transcripts (CCT) are comparable to students’ academic transcript. Instead of coursework, it lists extracurricular activities in which students have participated in while at TU. This includes membership and leadership positions in various student organizations, as well as highlighting the skills acquired and developmental aspects experienced while participating.
