OSU-Tulsa will host Welcome Week to greet students on their return to campus beginning Monday. The event will run through Aug. 18.

Beginning at 4:30 p.m. on Monday through Thursday, free pizza will be available in the North Hall Lobby on a first come, first served basis. Also, campus representatives will provide information about several services, such as OSU-Tulsa University Police and the Wellness Center. Career Services will give away free T-shirts in North Hall 140.

Each day, campus ambassadors will be at building entrances from 3:45-5:15 p.m. to assist with locating classrooms and university services. They will also have OSU-Tulsa promotional items to distribute to students.

The Information Center in the North Hall Lobby will have extended hours from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Students may stop by the Information Center or call 918-594-8000 for assistance locating classrooms or services or to make a reservation for BOB, OSU’s Big Orange Bus.

Heavy traffic, delays anticipated during road construction

As part of the City of Tulsa’s ongoing road construction project, OSU-Tulsa students, faculty and staff should allow extra time to arrive at or leave campus.

Expect heavy traffic and delays as street improvements continue on Detroit Avenue, Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and John Hope Franklin Boulevard immediately north of I-244.

The city launched the project last fall near the main campus entrance to improve streets and lighting and to add new sidewalks and streetscaping for increased pedestrian traffic between campus and downtown. For more details and to view a map, visit the OSU-Tulsa website.

Deadline approaching for Academy Central Elementary School supply drive

OSU-Tulsa will accept donations of school supplies through Monday for children who attend Academy Central Elementary, the campus’ Partners in Education school.

Students need notebook paper, pencils, mechanical pencils, colored pencils, crayons, spiral notebooks, two-pocket folders, glue sticks, pens, markers, tissues and hand sanitizer.

Donations may be dropped off at North Hall 130, North Hall 204 or the OSU-Tulsa Police office in Main Hall Commons. The drive will provide needed resources as schools face reduced contributions from the state.

It’s not too late
