Check your calendar before saying “yes” to an invitation if you live in the Tower at The Oaks. After all, with so much to do, you might already be booked. The Tower was designed to accommodate the kinds of things you will enjoy.

Theater: Grab some popcorn and enjoy a movie in our comfortable theater. Check the schedule to see what’s playing. Our theater features everything from current hits to old favorites. Don’t forget that you can also reserve the theater and bring your own DVD and friends to enjoy it. 

Games: Ready for a little friendly competition? Poker night, bunco and bridge will allow you to join your neighbors and test your expertise. If you prefer leisurely games, there are plenty of spaces at the Tower to plan your own fun. Our card room and game loft are great locations to gather. And if billiards is your preference, you’ll appreciate the luxury of our billiards room and its sweeping view of the spacious lawn and chapel.

Creativity:  If it’s time to test your creativity, the Tower’s art studio is the place to be. Art, craft activities, flower arranging—you can do them all in this bright and cheerful space. 

Culinary: The Tower’s reputation for its cuisine is enhanced by culinary programs that offer residents insight into different cuisines, complete with tastings. Our chefs enjoy creating culinary events like the Titanic Dinner which replicated the last meal served on the famed ship. 

Lifelong Learning: Be sure to check out the lifelong learning programs available at the Tower and elsewhere on campus. Book reviews are featured monthly and are always well-received. University at The Oaks is a popular series with university professors sharing insight on topics of interest, particularly things historical. These programs and several others are open to the community, so you’ll want to invite your community friends and family to join you. While community members pay for programs with a fee, these programs are free to residents. 

Spiritual Services: Of course, with The Oaks’ multifaith heritage, spiritual nourishment is important. Choose not only from an array of worship and prayer services in the Chapel at The Oaks but Bible studies, vespers and devotions.   

Excursions: If this is not enough, you’ll also find excursions for sight-seeing, learning, and shopping. Residents’ favorites include Chimp Haven, the Norton Art Museum, historic Natchitoches or Jefferson, Louisiana State Exhibit Museum, cruise on scenic Caddo Lake, Shreveport Symphony performances and the Farmers’ Market in downtown Shreveport.
