Tahlequah is the home of Northeastern State University, the Cherokee Nation, Lake Tenkiller, and the scenic Illinois River. Tahlequah provides a “big city style” atmosphere in a rural community. Our residency program is within one hour of an international airport in Tulsa, Oklahoma without the traffic congestion and time delays of a large city.
