Sooner Orientation Weekend

Sooner Orientation Weekend (SOW) is four fun days full of activities and information designed to welcome you to the University of Oklahoma. The schedule is packed with opportunities to meet great people, get acquainted with the campus and community and learn about the many services and programs that will help you succeed as a Sooner.


SOW 2014 will be Thursday, August 14 - Sunday, August 17. A schedule is available for download below (Please note that the subject is still schedule to change, so check back for the latest).  We would like you to know that parents are welcome to stay as long as they would like, but we typically find that most parents return home sometime Friday afternoon or evening. There are events throughout Thursday and during the day on Friday that parents are more than welcome to attend.
