Halliburton Women's Welcome


Did you know that making connections can facilitate and enhance your educational and professional success?

Halliburton Women's Welcome provides you with an opportunity to get a jumpstart on forming unique connections that will facilitate your success as an engineering or science student. This program assists female freshmen and transfer students as they transition to the study of engineering and science at OU. Students spend quality time with faculty, staff, alumnae and students from various engineering and science disciplines in both the Gallogly College of Engineering and Mewbourne School of Petroleum and Geological Engineering. Participants will become familiar with the campus, academic resources and opportunities to stay connected throughout the collegiate journey. As a bonus, students are provided with the opportunity to move into the residence halls early.
