The Honors College at the University of Oklahoma offers our high-achieving students the environment of a very fine, small liberal arts college in the midst of a large, state-supported national research university. It strives to provide our students with opportunities to explore a wide range of diverse interests and to discover the intellectual excitement of fully utilizing their talents and abilities.
With its 24-hour quiet library/reading room, 24-hour computer lab, classrooms on site, atrium garden courtyard, most classes no larger than 19 students, and residential floors above the classrooms, David L. Boren Hall is a beautiful facility, but it also represents a community of scholars and an attitude about high achievement and extending intellectual potential to the fullest. Here you will find highly talented students, faculty, and staff engaged in working together -- thinking, reading, writing, researching, and discussing the widest possible range of important topics.
Its Writing Center helps students prepare to be effective CEOs, doctors, lawyers, engineers, scientists, artists, and government leaders. Its Medical Humanities Program guides pre-med students to a place in OU's School of Medicine. Its Undergraduate Research Opportunities Program gives research grants to young scientists and humanists, and also opportunities to present the results of their original research. Its Honors in Oxford (England) Program is one of the most rewarding and successful study-abroad opportunities in America.
All of these opportunities combine to make OU's Honors College a premier learning community for high-achieving students. Accept the challenge to excel in one of America's finest colleges, and let us show you the excellence that is the University of Oklahoma!
I look forward to welcoming you to campus.
