Thank you for your advice on my last posting. I have checked out Tulsa members pages now and have an idea of some of the things I want to do when I get to Tulsa. I'm now coming February 12th - 18th approx.
I am looking for any good cheap suggestions for accomodation. I am on a scholarship and have to scrape my way around Tulsa - any hostels or small boarding houses?
I tried the journalplus thing on someone elses response but couldnt find it.
I'm not aware of any hostels or boarding houses. The Downtown Tulsa YMCA (918-583-9622, ask for Bruce) rents private rooms (with shared baths) for68 a week (plus refundable20 key deposit). There may be some "characters" in residence and I wouldn't wander around outside in that area at night too much, but my unerstanding is that the accomodations are safe and clean. If you won't have a car, the Tulsa Transit bus station is about two blocks away and you can get around town fairly easily with that.
I have no idea if they have any programs but you might also try contacting the Unitversity of Tulsa (800-331-3050) or Oral Robert University (800-678-8876) and seeing if they have any accomodations for visiting students.
Good luck. Let me know if I can answer any questions.
