From University of Oklahoma

What Possibilities! Those are the words OU’s first president, David Ross Boyd, uttered when he first stepped off the train in Norman and looked across the land on which the university would eventually stand. More than 130 years later, those words still ring true.

On a campus of 22,000 undergraduates, students enjoy the advantages of a flagship, public research institution while also being part of a group that is small enough to foster a deep connection to the OU family. OU is a pacesetter for public higher education, offering 170+ majors and earning the Carnegie Institution’s Very High Research Activity classification.

Students can use their free time to join one of 680+ student organizations or cheer on OU’s athletics teams. With students attending OU from all across the nation and 136 countries, students have a chance to learn from peers from all walks of life. Come see all that OU has to offer by scheduling a campus tour today!
