The Princeton Review recognizes TU’s outstanding academics

Once again, The University of Tulsa has been recognized by The Princeton Review as one of the nation’s best institutions of higher learning. TU also was named to several “best” lists for 2016: Colleges That Pay You Back, Green Colleges, Private Schools and Best Western Colleges.

TU’s outstanding academic programs earned it a place in The Best 380 Colleges. However, inclusion on specialized lists is determined by 136,000 student surveys conducted by The Princeton Review.

The University of Tulsa provides the “best aspects of a large state school and a small private school, in addition to great scholarships,” according to one respondent. One student also said: “I feel better prepared than many of my friends who have attended other universities because of the challenging workload and the professors.”

TU students call the faculty “smart, entertaining, caring individuals,” who “have reached peak success in their fields” and are “very dedicated to their classes and course material. They all seem to love what they do and want us to love it, too.”

In addition to receiving high marks for academics, The Princeton Review noted that the university has a high quality of life on campus, friendly students and a great library.

“Life at TU is contemplative in the sense that students are always trying to explore issues and find new solutions,” one being “perfect balance between work and play,” and they feel peers are “supportive of my success academically and socially.”
