I love going to OU! Because I am in greek life, I have met so many amazing people from different backgrounds! Norman is the perfect college town, however I wish there were more healthy food options. During fall semester, everyone's favorite days are football game days. Tailgates are a great weekend activity and a fun environment to meet new people in! The amount of Sooner pride is astounding! The community OU has established is one that cannot be topped. That being said, I would love to see them renovate the freshman dorms and fix the terrible problem they have with parking. It's time for a change. Boomer Sooner!

Very big & beautiful school with something for everyone! A lot of opportunities for internships, leadership positions and involvement. A lot of research opportunities and very good professors as well, especially for a public university. Despite the perception, OU is a lot more than just football and greek life. However, I would recommend that after freshman year, you live somewhere within walking distance to campus, because the parking here is absolutely awful and you will absolutely regret commuting to campus and spending nearly 2 hours looking for a parking spot everyday, even with a parking pass that costs hundreds of dollars. Also Dale Hall is a ridiculous building and if you have a class there, get there early because trying to make your way through the crowds in that building can sometimes take a while. The parking situation & Dale Hall is the only thing preventing me from giving this great school 5 stars.
I love it here, the campus is beautiful. You just have to keep your head up and don't let anyone else get you down. The Greek life here is insane, not always in a good way. If thats your thing though, then this is the place for you! Overall the professors are good and there are plenty of things to do on campus. Union Board always makes sure kids have something to do on the weekends. Also, there is a great theatre in the Union and they put on movies that are still out in theaters. The entire campus has basically been renovated since the time I was a freshman.
