Christopher Lastrapes

Christopher Lastrapes is a proud and loyal alumnus of The University of Tulsa (BA ’03, BS ’03, MA ’05), who is committed to fostering opportunity in higher education, especially at his alma mater.

Lastrapes has many pleasant memories of his college days at TU, including the enduring friendships he made through his active involvement in the Sigma Chi Fraternity and the TU Student Association, the excellent education he received, and the exciting Golden Hurricane athletic events he attended and has been building a successful career since graduating from TU, using the knowledge he gained in his studies and the business contacts he developed at TU to pursue a successful career at Sony Network Entertainment in Los Angeles, California.

Lastrapes enjoyed many extraordinary academic opportunities while he was a TU student related to his love of writing, including pursuing a master’s degree in English and screenwriting, serving as the sports editor of The Collegian and working with the writers’ group “Fictional Characters.”

Lastrapes continues to appreciate the quality education he received at The University of Tulsa, as well as the scholarship assistance he was given as a student, and he wishes to provide scholarship assistance to others, who like him, either graduated from Jenks High School in Jenks, Oklahoma, or are members of the Sigma Chi Fraternity.

Lastrapes also wishes to assist others who would like to pursue degrees at TU in the future, especially those students pursuing degrees in Film Studies or English (with a focus on film and Renaissance drama).

In fulfillment of these wishes and as a part of The University of Tulsa’s Pioneer Program, Christopher Lastrapes has established a life insurance gift to create The Christopher Lastrapes Alumni Legacy Endowed Scholarship Fund and The Christopher Lastrapes Film and Drama Endowed Scholarship.
