Beyond the Classroom

    • Set the stage for lifelong learning and success.

      Learning is an individualized journey that extends far beyond a major or the walls of a classroom. TU’s Office of Integrative and Experiential Learning (OIEL) provides opportunities for scholars to enliven their studies through global education, research, scholarship, and interdisciplinary programs. Our real-world academic enrichment opportunities are designed to challenge students and enhance their personal and professional educational experience.

      Experiential Learning

    • Make your TU experience as rich and diverse as you like.

      TU students have abundant opportunities to get involved with clubs and organizations to develop new skills, meet new friends, and make lifetime memories. From international clubs, music groups, and intramural sports to Greek life, student government, and on-campus leadership, there’s truly something for everyone at TU. Our multi-faceted extracurricular options perfectly complement our multidisciplinary academic approach.

      Student Organizations

    • Be the change you want to see.

      TU encourages students to give back to the community and see societal problems through a different lens. In considering issues ranging from low-income to racial biases, students analyze the intricacies of cyclical social issues to gain broader perspectives and insights, which they can share with others and act on in the community.

      Civic Engagement

    • Pursue success with confidence — backed by TU’s job placement guarantee.

      TU is committed to our students’ professional success, which is why our Center for Career Development, aka CaneCareers, offers a job placement guarantee program. We promise that students who follow the program will land an entry-level job in their chosen field or continue their education within six months of graduation, or we’ll give them a free semester of grad school.
