You are a historic class, you are champions, you are global leaders, and you are Sooners for life. Thank you for choosing OU, go create your story.

 This year's incoming class of OU students is truly outstanding! I have seen my students work through adversity to accomplish amazing things in their academic, professional, and personal lives. This group of students is determined to make their mark on campus and leave a legacy at OU. I can't wait to see what they accomplish! 

Jill Manning, Senior Assistant Director of Admissions

 I am elated to welcome the class of 2026 to Norman this Fall, a class filled with selfless leaders, agents of change, and achievers. I look forward to witnessing not only the individual and collective accomplishments but the positive impact that each member of this class brings to the OU community for years to come. Welcome to the Sooner Family!

 Working with this Rocky Mountain Class has been a wonderful experience! I am always thankful to see how strong the love for the OU family is out in the mountain region. I know when students head to Norman that they are going to experience something like never before, and this experience is passed down through generations. I believe the strong alumni support in this region is proof of that!
