“What I say to you is if you are pondering is now is the time, if OU is the place, that I want to put your mind at ease," Dr. Hyppolite said. "Now is the time to pursue higher education because it’s you that you’re investing in. You’re investing in your future. You’re investing in your local community, your regional community, and your state community. This is a place that can prepare you for anything that comes your way, and so we want you to consider making OU your new home away from home.”
