Parents

From move-in day in August to graduation four years later, OU students are engaged in a tradition of excellence. Sooners are champions in the classroom, community, laboratory, and workplace. The OU community is your family, your friends and your neighbors. We are all Sooners.

As a parent, you can play a vital role in your Sooner's success and experience. We warmly welcome you to our family.

The OU Experience

The University of Oklahoma is truly an extraordinary institution. OU has emerged as a pacesetter for public higher education in the United States and is ranked by The Princeton Review among the top 10 public universities in the nation in terms of academic excellence and cost for students. While we are known for academic excellence, we are remembered because of our community. This is the OU experience.

"At the end of the day, OU is where she decided she really wanted to come because she felt like it was home," said Kyra's mom, Ashanti Slone.

Students across the world choose OU because it feels like home. Our sense of community empowers students to be part of a greater cause. Our students become part of a legacy of people who bring positive change to Oklahoma, the nation and the world.

Our beloved President David Boren champions this sense of community. He states that there is a true sense of family on the OU campus. "Above all, OU has a strong sense of community. We are all part of a university family where we respect and care about each other," said President Boren.
