Seniors, spring is approaching and that means it is almost time to make your decision about which university to attend. We hope you decide to join the Sooner family!
Come visit campus one more time to see if OU is the place for you. There are three Sooner Showcase options. The overall programming will be identical for each event with a unique focus in the areas listed below (see individual event itineraries for more information on specific activities).
Each Showcase will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and will feature student speakers, Camp Crimson information and a chance to finalize your after admission steps right here in person!
Lunch in Couch Restaurants (our on-campus cafeteria) will be available at a discounted rate of $9. You are also welcome to dine at any of the eateries across campus or on historic Campus Corner.
In order to attend a Sooner Showcase, you must have submitted a 2015 OU admission application. If you would like to complete your application online, visit apply.ou.edu.
