Why OU?

Students with President Boren

The University of Oklahoma is more than just a campus. More than lecture halls and practice fields. More than archways and academics. More than a rich history and far-reaching reputation. All of that is just the backdrop. A foundation.

An engraving on a building might tell you it has been here for a century, but what breathes life into its halls is you. OU is where your story becomes part of ours.

The only thing missing is you.

"The University of Oklahoma is very pleased to be a leader in the nation in working hard to keep the doors of opportunity open for deserving students who face an increasingly difficult time in paying for higher education."

President David L. Boren
