Participation in Orientation
All OU Scholars must participate in a 1.5-hour Scholars Orientation Workshop held during New Sooner orientation activities on the Friday and Saturday prior to the start of classes in August. The workshops are designed to assist students in making a successful transition from high school to college.
Students learn techniques and strategies for managing time and stress, dealing with problems and taking advantage of the cultural activities and student services on campus. The workshops are interactive and participatory, including lectures, discussions and exercises.
