    My son is about to graduate from high school. He is number one in his class with a 5.0 GPA! He is planning to double major in music and mathematics. Interesting combination, but he's very good at both. He was just offered a scholarship to the University of Tulsa and he has already visited the campus and liked it very much. I was wondering if anyone here had attended U of Tulsa or had a family member attend? If so what are you thoughts of the school, especially if you studied music or math there.

    I graduated there in 1986 BSEE. Engineering school was good. It's been a long time, so a lot has changed. I drove by about 6 years ago and could barely recognize anything, so any input I would have is probably obsolete. I enjoyed it while I was there.

    The neighborhood next to it used to be pretty seedy, but they've since bulldozed that all down for more athletic fields and such, so it's probably better now.

    Overall good experience. Weather's nice. Probably nicer winter than what you get in KC.

    Don't know anything about the music program.

    What else can I say?

    University of Tulsa has a really nice campus, I've been there several times for my step-daughter's piano recitals. The new building they have for preformances is pretty amazing. I have heard good things about the school of music there. I know two people that graduated from the music program and I have to say that they are the most arrogant people with the least common sense I've met - but I can't say it's a product of the school. I also know people in the Computer Science Doctorate program and the Law program, and they all speak very highly of the school and education they're receiving (But I guess they better like the education they're receiving with the how much the school costs).
