On October 23rd, Boston International School welcomed another special guest, Barbra Chen, the China Admissions Representative from University of Tulsa.
Barbra started the information session by sharing with our students the term, TCK, which is the top she worked on for her dissertation. TCK stands for Third Culture Kids, and by definition, it means people raised in a culture other than their parents’ or the culture of the country named on their passport (where they are legally considered native) for a significant part of their early development years. Students who are interested in learning more information will be encouraged to do more research as well.
After the short talk about TCKs, Barbra gave a thorough introduction of University of Tulsa. She shared that in TU, about 23% of their undergraduate are international students, and the average class size is 23 people, which gives all students enough attention in class.
She mentioned several popular programs in TU, which they receive a lot of applicants from. Finance, Psychology, Management, Film Studies, Computer simulation and Gaming, and the most popular one, Petroleum Engineer.
She also mentioned that in TU, students get tons of opportunities to go outside the campus to do community services or get involved with real life learning experiences. One thing in particular, for their Finance majored students, they are currently managing a fund worth of 5 million US dollars.
Going forward, Boston International School will invite more College Representatives to come and to get our students ready for college. Please stay tuned.
