Two Students PiggyBacking on Campus

Latinx Students

Bienvenido/Bem vinda to the University of Oklahoma Latinx page!

The University of Oklahoma has representation from the Latinx community across campus. OU recognizes that the richness of this community is important not only to the university but to the world as a whole. Students might be concerned about the unknown set of challenges they will face with this big transition. The University of Oklahoma has dedicated staff and faculty to guide students through the obstacles that come with making that change. This page is designed to aid students as they navigate the college admissions process and explore the resources and community awaiting them on our campus.

Class of 2023 | Finance | Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

"Attending the University of Oklahoma as a Latinx student plays a vital role in Diversity and Inclusion efforts. Our experiences and backgrounds assist in supporting the voice of our community. As a Price College of Business student, I have been able to not only grow professionally but also culturally. Being a part of the Multicultural Business Program (MBP) has exposed me and my peers to a diverse culture which we all now share as a part of the Sooner family."

Class of 2023 | Health, Medicine, and Society: Community Health | Hobbs, New Mexico

"Coming to OU as a first-generation Latinx student can be overwhelming; however, once stepping onto campus, I emerged into a prosperous welcoming community. Connecting with organizations and students that reflect my background has empowered me to be part of an Oklahoma family. Taking a chance to attend an out-of-state school away from my family and culture has exposed me to Oklahoma's abundant and thriving Latinx community."
