Tulsa Chapter

The Tulsa Chapter provides excellent opportunities for Tulsa-area alumni to connect with and serve both the University community and the city of Tulsa in a wide variety of ways. We happily accept the role as the host chapter for TU's ever expanding network of clubs, chapters and individual alumni spread throughout the nation and the world. Whether you are driving from South Tulsa, making the trek from Kansas City, or flying in from China, our goal is to make sure every alum is greeted with a smiling face that can explain all the amazing achievements of our alma mater.

Recognizing that one in ten of TU students is a student athlete, the Tulsa Chapter Athletics committee focuses on alumni support and engagement for all our collegiate sports. We also strive to recognize the members of the Sound of the Golden Hurricane that play an essential role in the spirit and excitement at sporting events. In the fall, the Chapter plays an important role in the exciting sea of blue at our home football games by sponsoring and staffing Homecoming and the TU Tavern on the Green tailgates. If you have not been back on campus in sometime, you will be amazed at the transformation not only of the physical campus, but of the spirit and heart of the University.  If you have been back, keep joining us as the excitement grows.

Among our numerous events, the TU Uncorked wine festival allows our alumni to reconnect over great wine and food while raising money for scholarships for Tulsa-area students with financial needs. It is an amazing way not only to have a blast, but to support the University and our community.  To date, the Tulsa Chapter has raised almost half a million dollars for scholarships. It is typically a sold-out event, so sign up early.

Tulsa-area alumni have two excellent opportunities to connect with and support the University:  (1) attend any of the variety of events and have a great time!; and (2) volunteer an hour or so of your time to help. The great number of activities offered in Tulsa requires an enormous amount of volunteer hours and we can always use your help. It is easy to get involved!  Just become a part of the TU Blue Volunteer Crew and stay up to date on how you can help.

Finally, if we can't find you, we cannot keep you up to date on all the exciting progress at TU and opportunities to come home. So, please keep your contact information updated by using the TUAlumni.com online directory. It works to track down friends and allows you to post good news too. The Alumni Association has a presence on all the major social networking programs as well. Choose your favorites, and stay connected there too.

Our goal is to make sure that every TU alum has the opportunity to share in the excitement and progress of The University of Tulsa! I am honored and humbled to serve as President for the next two years, and want to hear from you with any ways we can accomplish that goal. Just send me an email at my lifetime email address of john-williams@utulsa.edu (you can use your lifetime utulsa.edu to contact me too). YOU are the Alumni Association, and we would love to hear from you.
