Founded in 1890, the University of Oklahoma is a 4-year public institution in central Oklahoma. OU offers bachelor’s degrees in 170 academic fields of study. In addition to classroom space, the OU campus hosts the National Weather Center featuring a partnership between the university and the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association. For sports fans, OU is home to 19 men’s and women’s athletics teams, with the football team, known as the Sooners, annually meeting the University of Texas in the Red River Showdown.
The University of Oklahoma has been a great experience for me, although the campus is huge and there are thousands of students, don't assume that you'll just be a number to your professor. The professors are very friendly and supportive if you need help with anything. I recommend getting to know your professors, roommates, and classmates so that you can make your experience here just as memorable.

The University of Oklahoma has a wealth of opportunity to offer. It is a beautiful campus and the classes are kept small to offer individual attention to students. It also offers a lot of ways to get involved and give back to the community as well as ways to further your education or make connections that can last a lifetime.
