Will learn a lot
Just from talking to other students you can learn a lot if you put the work into it. You can't blow off things. I know in high school you could get an A in a class and still know nothing. Not OU the professors are world-class and teach because they want you to learn and understand it so that you can use it.
Will enjoy being here
I was there one day by myself just walking around. There is so much I can do but not so much I must do other than my actual classes. It sounds strange but from a small town you are expected to be in clubs and to volunteer for EVERYTHING
Bang for the buck
I am out of state It is not Bad for out of state but still expensive as heck the Fin Aid office really didn't offer much
Tips for prospective students
Keep grades high make sure your grades are high enough to start in your major's plan. (i.e. math for engineering) look it up on the website. you do not want to start behind
Great for these types of students
National Merit Scholars (I'm not one btw), Meteorology, anything with media, Engineering( state of the art facilities)

Did learn a lot
I did learn a lot. The lecture classes are large but the harder classes like science and math have smaller groups were you get more attention and practice. The English classes are even capped to be under 20 students! It's an awesome set up they have going. It's a nice median between party school and study school. The Library is awesome, during midterms and finals the LIBRARY becomes the hang out spot.
Did enjoy being here
I greatly enjoyed being at this university! I plan on going back in the fall matter of fact! The campus is wonderful and beautiful. I felt like I was at home a week in. The people there are so happy and friendly and all the upperclassmen really do help you out and make you feel welcome. During welcome week there are a load of activities and they even have golf carts to take you to class if you get lost! Which is an awesome idea since the Oklahoma heat in September can be..overwhelming.
Bang for the buck
5 stars! I don't even know how to put my emotions into words with this one. Let me just tell you, I ran out of money after my freshman year and had to go to a local community college. I've been knocking out credits and work my butt off to make money to get back to Norman. I do it because I miss it. I love the school so much I'm willing to do pretty much anything I can to get back there. I'm trying to show that out of state tuition whose boss!
Tips for prospective students
GO TO THE ACTIVITIES THEY HAVE SET UP FOR YOU!!! I HIGHLY recommend the camp they put on for incoming freshman the summer before entry. I found my two best friends at the Sooner session of the camp, made a lot of other friends, learned my way around the campus, and started to feel at home, not to mention had a BLAST! Howdy Week is their form of a welcome week. The activities here are so fun, the counselors are SUPER friendly and you learn a lot about college and the campus. Also, if you are having a hard time in a class there's tutoring available for EVER SINGLE class. If you need help, just look for it, its there.
Great for these types of students
The University of Oklahoma is a great school all around. If you're sporty then you already know their sport programs and how well they do. But, did you know about their gym and how fully stocked and open it is. I called it home my freshman year to keep off the dreaded 15. They also have a great intramural program. If your the gotta get a 4.0 type then you may be wary, think that OU is a party school. But, did you know that they admit the highest amount of national-merit scholars than any other 4 yr public university and they even have a freshman dorm for national merit scholars with quite time and visitor rules so that your studies are never interrupted. Even if you want a normal dorm, the whole top floor is separate study rooms open 24 hours with strict quite rules. Last but not least, if you're the partying type there is what seems an endless supply of sororities and fraternities that will supply your partying needs. There are also a lot of clubs and bars near by. Campus Corner will supply your bars, restaurants, and shopping needs.
If you are none of these in particular but rather a mix of them, then you can take advantage of it all.

Overall it has everything a student may need!

OU is home to the most National Merits.
OU is home to the Big 12 Championships of 2015.
OU is home to the most international students who are UWC (United World College) Davis scholars.
Tips for prospective students
Some of the most helpful tips I received as a freshman are to be prompt, go to class, learn to study, get help from tutors or professors, sleep and most importantly get connected with groups to make lifelong friends. It is crucial to attend classes, after all you paid for these classes. With class attendance comes promptness. If you are going to go through the trouble of attending class in the first place, you might as well try to get the most out of it. Going to class is the first step, the second step is learning how to study. Different people have different methods of studying, but it is crucial to learn how to study before an exam. That does not mean to cram the night before; instead, studying means pacing yourself, focusing and making a plan on how you are going to tackle the subject. If you stumble upon any questions, it is best to take note of it and ask the professor or a tutor for help. Professors are willingly to provide you with offices hours, or hours they set aside to help their students, so it is to your advantage to use it wisely. There are Action Center tutors that are available almost 24 hours a day to provide you with one-on-one tutoring on any subject. However, in order to study right, it is vital to obtain a decent amount of sleep every night. Sleep helps you retain the facts and process the information correctly. Without sleep, your health will gradually deteriorate, and studying will become futile. Most importantly, make friends. At first college may seem daunting, but if you have the right group of friends, from organizations or clubs, the transition to becoming an adult will become more fun.
Academic Rigor
As a freshman, it is crucial to complete all your prerequisites in order for you to begin your field of study. As a result, courses are not as complicated yet. However, as one of the largest universities in the nation, OU is not easy, so be prepared to learn and accommodate to the new academic rigor that is extremely different than high school. It is vital to learn to study and take advantage of any and all of extra credit opportunities to boost your GPA. You will be academically challenged. Professors expect your homework assignments and essays to be turned in promptly. This means you must learn to juggle classes and manage your time wisely.
Dorm Life
Be aware. With paper thin walls, small bathroom sinks, messy roommates and non-adhesive walls, dorm life may be unsatisfying but it's well worth it. Yes, the rooms are small and walls are thin, so blaring your music may not be the best option. But it is worth it to jam out to someone's karaoke session. With small sinks it may become difficult to brush your teeth and look into the mirror simultaneously. Yet with limited space the sink is easily able to adapt and optimally stores just enough space for soap. Walls are also non adhesive to any type of tape other than 3M. Duct tape won't stick for long and tacks aren't permitted. However, 3M sticky tacks are not hard to find. And provides and nice support for all sorts of weigh and shapes. Lastly the roommate, let's leave as the best option is not to room with your bestie. Too much of a good thing could be bad. However, if you any tribulations accommodating to the environment the RA, or room advisers are there to help. With helpful resources they can alleviate any stress induced problems or find the right places to hang out. RAs are there to host mandatory meetings, walk you safely back to your dorm, and check up on us periodically. Without their assistance, dorms would be chaotic.
Food and Dining
The options galore. There are a wide variety of pubs, cafes, and shops located around Campus Corner. Under each Residential Hall are small eateries like Raisin' Canes, Couch Express, and Xcetra. The University of Oklahoma also has a couple of dining halls. One being the most prominent is the Caf, short for Couch Caf. The Caf is an all-you-can-eat buffet serving different assortments of food from all over the globe including an all-you-can-eat Chick-fil-a. Food from Greece, Italy, China and Mexico are all available. Served alongside are other options that serve to be a healthier option (e.g. salad bar, fitter foods, and vegetarian station). And that is just the Caf alone. In other dining halls, like Cate and the Union, they serve Quiznos, Taco Mayo, Starbucks and even one restaurant that opens 24 hours, providing us with limitless varieties of food, promising us that we will never become enervated.
What to do for fun
The University of Oklahoma is known for its football. This season the best games were played and with each touchdown, the crowds roar and cheer. Football season always brings together friends and family. On a more calming and serene note, many people enjoy taking a stroll down south oval during the weekends. This large, beautiful campus has myriads of botanical creations. Within walking distance from the campus are two museums that are free of admission. The two museums are both nationally recognized: The Fred Jones Jr. Museum, which houses many prominent artist's paintings and sculptures and the Sam Noble Museum, which houses historical artifacts and hosts lectures of illustrious speakers from around the world.
Located at the heart of Norman, OU gives students the opportunity to traverse and see what Oklahoma has in store for free. With free buses that arrive on campus every hour to take students to the Sooner Mall and Walmart, students are given the chance to explore the third largest city in Oklahoma. Other intercity buses can take students to the two most fascinating events: Norman Music Festival and the Norman Medieval Fair.

Bang for the buck
The University of Oklahoma, or OU, uses its tuition and fees wisely. With a beautiful landscapes, great places to study and delicious food, the fees are spent towards the students. The tuition is not exorbitantly high and the overall cost is fairly decent as compared to other research institutions in the nation. Coming to OU, and receiving this higher educational degree will be very worth it in the long run.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
Rumor has it that if you walk under the clock tower, you would not be able to graduate on time. I, on the other hand, had forgotten about this and while I was on the phone, I had accidentally walked underneath the clock tower. All eyes bore into my soul, but I continued to casually stroll. After I had hung up, I noticed the stares. I looked behind me and realized the crime I had just committed. Out of fear and humiliation, my first thought was to walk back under the clock tower to reverse the curse. So, I ran back through. Laughter rose and it came to fruition that I had not reversed the curse, instead I had veritably confirmed it.
Clubs and Activities
With an easy accessibility, clubs and organizations are found on the app called OrgSync. With just one tap, you can contact the coordinator, receive notifications on future meetings and become an active member of the club. Clubs on campus are riveting. There are religious organizations, STEM (science technology engineering math) based clubs, volunteering and tons more. You have the chance to hang out with friends, engage your brain, and work together with others forming bonds outside of the typical lecture halls or classrooms that can last a lifetime.
Greek Life
Greek life is loads of fun. They go out and party almost every Friday night, however be mindful that OU is a dry campus, which means we do not allow drug and alcohol on campus.
Campus Safety
Located around campus are blue telephone boxes, with a bright blue light at the top, are designed to contact the OUPD directly once it has been opened. So, if by any chance you are being chased or stalked, the OUPD is easily accessible. We also have Safe Walk, which is where two RAs, a male and a female, are always on-call to provide a safe walk back to the dorms during any time of the day. These two RAs differ from day to day but are rained and more than willing to escort you back.

Am learning a lot
I took 2 AP classes in high school and studied often. I took a lighter workload and after my first semester at OU, I found that classes were not as difficult as I anticipated. Since OU is a public university, the class sizes are definitely bigger, but in no way does it hinder my ability to learn. The professors are very proactive and encourage you to study in groups, attend their office hours, and find graduate student tutors, anything that helps you succeed in your classes.
Am enjoying being here

Living along the Golden Coast all my life and then moving to landlocked Norman, Oklahoma was definitely a culture shock, but I can't imagine being anywhere else for my college education. Everyone here is so friendly and accommodating. It feels great to be part of a legacy of caring students, renowned athletes, prestigious professors, and successful corporation heads.

Whether or not you have a major, OU has over 150 academic majors to choose from, a great factor for me. I wouldn't want to be an out-of-state student stuck with a major because the school did not have enough of a selection.

In terms of campus life, I did not realize how great OU was until I compared it to other schools. We have WiFi access literally everywhere on campus (dorms, cafeteria, classrooms, even outside)! The newly renovated cafeteria (Couch Restaurants) is to die for: with all-you-can-eat BBQ & burgers, stir-fry, Mexican, home-cooked, make-your-own sandwiches, Italian, Chick-Fil-A, and Greek food, all with the swipe of one meal card. Did I mention the in-house frozen yogurt and Starbucks coffee? The Gym (Huffman Center) is open until midnight weekdays and has an indoor track, basketball, racquetball, and volleyball courts available. The library is also a beautiful, quiet place located in the center of campus to study or even nap during the day!
There is not much in Norman apart from the campus, and OU makes sure to keep its facilities as appealing and entertaining as possible for its students.
Bang for the buck
With all the renovations, new buildings, and agricultural maintenance around campus, you really see your money put to use.
As an out-of-state student, tuition is more expensive, so I had to apply for a lot outside scholarships to lower the costs. I was still saving money because my out-of-state tuition at OU was cheaper than in-state-tuition in California. OU still makes an effort to give at least some scholarship money to its students, so this helps too. As with any college, make sure to sign up for FAFSA to get the most financial aid possible.
Tips for prospective students
**Go on a college visit!
-Look around for optimal study spots for you. I like quiet spots, but I also prefer studying in small groups. The library, dorm towers, etc. have study rooms available for you.
-If you already have a major in mind, schedule an appointment with the advisor or department head after your campus tour. They are very accommodating if you schedule ahead of time. This gives you a good idea of what you can expect within the next few years.
After talking to a department head, try to speak with a student in your prospective major and get a tour of the your specific department's building. The general campus tour does not often cover this.
**Research the school ahead of time! Come up with a list of questions to ask so you'll be ready when you actually go to the campus.
**Eat at the Couch Restaurants (the Caf)! You can taste the delicious food you'll most likely be eating every day. (This added to my deciding factor to attend OU!)
**Visit the library
Great for these types of students
**Meteorology, Engineering (specifically petroleum), Journalism/Broadcasting majors
-The National Weather Center is located on the south side of campus and provides meteorology students with the best facilities
-The newest engineering building, the Engineering Practice Facility, is exclusively for students, clubs, and student organizations to work, study, and play. This multi-story building has no classes but offers computer labs, open work spaces, and tutoring specifically for engineering students.

**National Merit Scholars: OU usually gives A LOT of money for National Merit Scholars

**Sports/ OU football, volleyball, basketball fanatics: Go anywhere in the country and someone will know the Sooners.

**Students interested in Greek life: Many students are a part of Greek life, but there are also many other student organizations, from the Baptist Student Union to the Filipino Asian Student Association to Students Against a Factory-Farming Economy, there are groups for anyone and everyone on campus.

You will learn tons if you attend every class and do everything the professors ask of you. Take accurate notes and read over them after every class before exams. This helps tremendously, especially around finals week.
Am enjoying being here
OU is a beautiful campus that offers tons upon tons of extracurricular activities and groups. If you get involved, you will have a great experience. Everything you need is right there on campus at your exposure so take advantage.
Bang for the buck
I am an out of state student and it is definitely not cheap. Financial aid did not offer me that much so I have to work ten times harder for scholarships and take out loans. Even though my family is paying an arm and a leg for me to attend, I feel I am getting a top notch education here and I will be very successful once I graduate and begin my career.
Tips for prospective students
Keep your grades up there and join as many extracurricular activities as possible. Apply for scholarships, especially if you are out of state, and make sure you visit the campus if you are offered the opportunity.
Great for these types of students
Meteorology and Engineering majors and athletics. Especially volleyball, basketball, football, gymnastics, and dance. Just to name a few.

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.
Tips for prospective students
Stay on top of your work, don't put things off until the day before they are due. Along with that, study every day. Look over your notes once a day or so and devote more time than you think will be necessary to studying. That way, you can go into tests confident. Also, stay organized, it's all too easy to lose assignments. Make time for fun, otherwise you'll get burnt out and stressed. Have fun with friends and get involved on campus! The events and clubs are so awesome! Lastly, drop your cool. The people here are kind and accepting. A huge part of college is forging lasting friendships with people who like you for who you really are.
Academic Rigor
The classes here are not designed to be impossible, for the most part. They are challenging and they really work to make you think. The hardest part is balancing them. They have a lot of work, even if the work isn't that difficult. So, they can be hard because you have to juggle a multitude of subjects and all of your coursework due dates.
Dorm Life
Dorm life is surprisingly good. Sure, the rooms aren't huge, but they are big enough to house two people without feeling cramped. The dorms are clean and the towers specifically are practically brand new. The resident advisers and faculty-in-residence make the dorms seem more like home by creating events and bonding with residents.
Food and Dining
OU has awesome food. There are so many options and there's definitely something for everyone! Plus, the meal plan makes it easy to buy the food you want. The food is delicious and the staff are super friendly.
What to do for fun
The campus hosts events just about every day. There are job fairs, free movies, free food, comedy shows, theatrical productions, musical productions, dances, games, and lots of ways to get fun free stuff. Oh, and lets not forget our athletics! You can go to a game or play on a team, whether it be our big 12 teams or our intramural teams. There's also a great workout facility if that's what you like to do in your spare time. Another HUGE way to have fun is to join a group on campus. There are so many. You will definitely find one that fits your interests.
Bang for the buck
The university is a little expensive, but everything you get from OU is high-quality. The money goes to rebuilding buildings as well as the community. It also goes toward making your experience at OU fun and fulfilling.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
People yell Boomer Sooner at just about any time and everyone joins in. The OU campus also has a lot of art, much of which is really odd. We have a horse statue who's eyes light up at night and a sphinx statue that is known for being really weird and interesting. We also have a tradition associated with a piece of art called the spoon holder. If you kiss someone in the spoon holder it is said that the two of you will get married.
Great for these types of students
Students who want to learn, have fun, and enjoy lots of personal freedom. Students who come from all backgrounds and have experienced all sorts of things. Students who want to help others while learning about themselves.
Clubs and Activities
I can't say enough about how great the clubs and activities are. There are so many to choose from; something for everyone. We have ethnic groups, hobby/culture groups, special interest groups, health groups, activity-based groups, etc. The clubs are a great way to meet new people, make friends, and make connections that can help you in the future.
Greek Life
Greek Life is a big part of the University of Oklahoma. The chapters here are full of nice people who give back and study hard. They are always active on campus and holding events to raise money for various charities.
Campus Safety
The OU campus is extremely safe. There is a well-established police and security presence as well as a sense of kinship with all students. There are also emergency phones everywhere on campus and lots of street lamps in case you're walking at night. OU also has programs to get you home safe if you are off campus as well as a program that will have an RA walk you back to your dorm if you don't want walk alone at night. It's really great.

Am learning a lot
Most of my professors at OU have been very good and actually care about their students. No one will hold your hand through college, but they definitely encourage independent thinking and hard work. OU emphasizes a liberal arts education, so they require you to take classes outside of your major: 3 semesters of a foreign language, classes in art, history, English, ect. Although this requirement might seem like a pain, I have taken classes that I would have never taken otherwise and consequently have learned a lot!
Am enjoying being here
I love the OU campus, and Norman is pretty safe. The landscaping is beautiful and there are lakes and trails nearby to run at. The only complaint I have about Oklahoma is the wind. Although a breeze feels nice in the summer, it makes the winter ten times colder (on a positive note we get a few days off for inclement weather every winter). Norman is about 20 minutes away from Oklahoma City, about 1 1/2 hr from Tulsa, and about 3 hrs from Dallas, so you can easily drive to the city if you can't find anything to do. In addition, there are a lot of volunteer opportunities in Oklahoma that you can take advantage of (pre-med students especially can go volunteer in the many free clinics in okc). OU places a lot of emphasis on greek life and sports, which I am not a big fan of, but I live off of campus, so I feel like it is easier to get away from all that.
Bang for the buck
Out of state tuition is expensive! Although I get some of the cost waived through a scholarship, it still is not nearly as cheap as in state. Also DON'T BUY BOOKS FROM THE BOOKSTORE. Buying used online or renting online is definitely the way to go. Take as many community college classes or AP classes as you can. Also look for classes at OU that count for multiple requirements, so you don't have to take multiple classes.
Tips for prospective students
The biggest secret to college is time management and hard work. In most classes you are not going to get an A by doing the minimum. Professors expect you to work for your grade. Free points for attendance and homework and bonus are rarely give in college, so take advantage of them when they are. Always attend class because you never know what you might miss that day. Even if it seems boring and a waste of time, you are still interacting with the material you need to be learning. Use pick a prof, but don't swear by it. I have taken teachers that got horrible reviews and ended up being some of my favorite professors. A lot of times the fault lies with the student for not studying enough, and they like to blame it on the teacher. On the flip side, some professors are just not good (that is a rarity at OU however).
Great for these types of students
Students who are into sports
Students who like Greek life
Students who want a good, well-rounded education
Students who want to be close to a city but not actually in one
Pre-med students who are looking for good volunteer opportunities and a committee letter when they apply to medical school
A large school with a small feel to it
AWESOME interaction with professors and good opportunities for recommendation letters

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.
Tips for prospective students
Be sure you have everything in order before you move in on your first day.
Academic Rigor
My first semester was tough, but don't let that stop you. My professor met with me one-on-one in order to help me better understand the material of the assignments I was confused about.
Dorm Life
While the dorms are beautiful and living on campus is a great experience, I got a pot luck roommate who is horrible and the dorms are quite expensive.
Food and Dining
That food is amazing, there's so much to choose from.
What to do for fun
There are various activities that clubs and other organizations put on in order for students who are stuck on campus to have something fun to do.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
We get out of class when Texas and OU have a game.... I feel like this is a weird religion of the university's. but I'm not complaining.
Great for these types of students
If you like big cities and a big campus than this is the school for you.
Clubs and Activities
There are soooo many clubs, anything you could possibly think of we probably have it as a club already.
Greek Life
I don't know much about this.
Campus Safety
We have campus police and this poles that if we pull the lever, if we feel threatened, an alarm will sound and the police will be there in seconds.

OU professors really teach you to think for yourself, especially your English professors. OU professor also teach you different research skills. You really do have to study a lot to make the grade but it is worth it. There are so many diverse programs at OU that I am sure that you will be able to find the right program for you.
Am enjoying being here
I love being at OU and I am sure that you will too. There are activities every week at OU. They have free movies every Friday in the Meacham Auditorium in the Student Union, for ex: I saw Get Smart there and they also showed the Dark Knight. The sound for the movies will blow your mind. They also do things like have Make a Necklace or Pot A Plant almost everyday in the Union. There are always club activities going on at OU. The way that you find out about most activities is to read the sidewalks. Yeah, I said it. I don't know who does it but, someone writes the activities on the sidewalk in chalk (some people call it chalking) so as your walking you can look down and see whats happening. They also have things like Howdy Week and when your first week there they have so many activities and sometimes you get free lunch. Also, in the cafeteria (we call it the cafe) which is also Couch Restaurants they have special meals for the holidays and stuff where they make the cafe look all pretty and nice and serve some exotic foods. Once they had caviar, I personally thought it was disgusting but you just might like it. Also, I love the recycling system that OU has. Everywhere you go there are recycle bins- you absolutely cannot miss them. So if you are environmentally conscious OU will help. Also, it does help that the Campus is beautiful and has a great Library. It is simply amazing.
Bang for the buck
For me, OU is definitely worth it. Of Course, in-state tuition is lower than out-of-state tuition but its still worth it. I am so glad that I came here. I really didn't have a full plan for college. I just sort-of applied for this college and OSU and just went for OU to be going for it. Then, when I got here I was blown away. I am so glad that I chose OU simply for the fact that the people there are awesome and OU is just plain awesome.
Tips for prospective students
**Learn your study skills now, trust me it will help. You have to study smart to make the grade.
**Make a plan that will help you keep from procrastinating.
**Try to move into your dorm at least two weeks or a week-and-half before school. Don't wait the day before class to move in or you wont know where to go.
**A college tour is helpful
**When you know what your classes are, go at least two or three days before class begins and walk around campus to find your classes, how long it will take you to get to them, and to learn the lay of the land. Trust me this helped me tremendously. Do this at least twice. .
**Try to find the quickest way to get to your classes.
**Make sure you know where the library is and the open/close time. I think it closes at 2 a.m. some days.
**Make sure you know where the Bursar Office is.
**You should acquire a bank account.
**Make sure you learn how to take the bus around campus. You have to get a sticker on the back of your ID card to be able to ride for free. Make sure to get a bus schedule and find out where the bus office is. Some buses like the Lloyd Noble Shuttle are free for everyone
**Make sure you know where the housing office is(Walker Tower, 1st Floor) and where the bathrooms and laundry rooms are located in the dorms.
**Explore all the dorms. There is a kitchen somewhere in Couch. I think 2nd or 3rd floor.
**Walker-Adams Mall is between the space between the Walker and Adams dorms.
**Make sure you learn your streets and how to get to Walmart.
**Make sure you know where all the major offices are and where the restaurants around campus are.
**Make sure you know about the apartment buildings policies and prices before you move in.
**Also, know that move in day is crazy. Depending on when you move in, there are going to be so people on move-in day so make sure you aren't claustrophobic.
**Make sure you know where the campus stores are so that you will know where to get your books.
**Make sure you lea...

At the University of Oklahoma you will learn so much in each of your classes. Your professors not only teach you valuable skills for your major, they teach you life long lessons as well. Although some class sizes may be larger than smaller universities, the professors are still there for you every step of the way. They invite you to their office hours and are very concerned with how each student is doing in their class.
Am enjoying being here
OU offers something for everyone; I love being here in Norman! It's not a big city, so you feel comfortable walking around campus and everything is within reasonable driving distance. The campus here at OU is beautiful; especially in the fall and spring. Whatever you are interested in you will be able to find it here. There are huge flat screen TVs in the dorms with video game systems. At the student union every weekend they offer free movie showings to students as well as give you free popcorn and drinks! Oh and how could I forget OU game days!! Saturday game days are so much fun at OU, you walk to the stadium with your friends and sit in the student section. There is nothing more exciting than cheering on the Sooners, especially against Texas (even though that's in Dallas) or OSU!
Bang for the buck
I know out of state tuition is higher than in-state tuition, but I think every penny is worth it to go to OU. I wouldn't trade my experience here for anything. I know it's expensive, I am a full time student and working full time as well, but I wouldn't want to go any where else except here.
Tips for prospective students
I think it would be very helpful if you came on a campus tour. It will really show you everything OU has to offer and you will be able to walk around campus and see where your potential classes might be. Also, start applying for financial aid and scholarships early! If you wait until the last minuet, there won't be anything left! Good luck with your senior year of high school and BOOMER SOONER!
Great for these types of students
-Anyone into athletics
-We have a great business and engineering school; so anyone interested in that
-Students who would want to go to a D-1 university, but still has a small town atmosphere
