Welcome to the OU Family!

New Sooner Orientation is a key part of every new student's successful transition to OU. Students will have the opportunity to meet with an academic advisor, enroll in their first semester of courses at OU, and learn more about campus before they arrive for Camp Crimson and the Fall semester. We look forward to welcoming you to the OU Family!
