My three years at the University of Oklahoma so far have been priceless for both my academic and social future. The university has introduced me to many new things about the world, both from a science perspective and a personal perspective. Hands-on experiments in well-equipped labs have enhanced the classroom learning experience for me in ways I could not have imagined. Through organizations at the university I have also forged numerous relationships that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Some of these relationships will benefit me from a professional standpoint while other ones will enrich my personal life and provide me with memories forever. Overall. I am grateful that I chose the University of Oklahoma and the impact it has had on my life in only 3 years. Boomer Sooner!

The University of Oklahoma provides many opportunities for their students including internships, study abroad programs, and more! Not only do they provide for their students academically but socially. Their Greek Life and community as a whole is very welcoming and uplifting. I already know that OU is going to be a great home for me and am excited to become more involved with the OU community.
The University of Oklahoma has a nice campus, and I was satisfied overall with my education. However, the student life is way too centered on greek life, and the diversity of student clubs and activities is poor compared with a school like UT. All of the student organizations at OU are run by Greek life members, so for students that are not in Greek life, I would not recommend it. The school is very expensive to attend out of state and there have been multiple racist incidents at the school just within the last few years. Most of the buildings are nice, but OU recently wasted millions of tuition dollars building upperclassmen dorms that there was 0 demand for, and now the university isn't renewing their lease on the buildings that they JUST built. What a waste of money!
