Summer Programs

Here at The University of Oklahoma's Norman campus, we recognize that the Summer Semester is a busy time for many students and campus is far from empty. Recognizing the importance of engagement even during the summer, the Office of Student Life and our partners around campus have continued to create opportunities for students, faculty, staff, and friends of OU to stay engaged on campus. 


For more information about academics and academic resources during the summer, please visit the Summer Semester page.
