The OU Club of Dallas is excited to introduce you to Elizabeth:
Name - Elizabeth "EB" McCready
High School - Plano West High School
OU major - Journalism
OU Tradition - As the first person in my family to attend the University of Oklahoma, I don't have a favorite tradition yet. What I am super excited for is the OU vs. Texas game because I'll get to come home to see all my friends and family for the game as well as go to the fair.
Thing about OU - I love the small school feel of Oklahoma. It has the opportunities of a big school like the excitement of football games, but it feels like a family the way a small school would. I feel so comfortable on the campus, and I can't wait to meet tons of new people that will eventually become my lifelong friends.
Musical Artist - I'm pretty typical when it comes to music tastes. I'll listen to anything from broadway soundtracks to pop music to country. I'd say the artist I like most consistently is Taylor Swift.
Movie - Silver Linings Playbook
Book - It's a toss up between The Fault in our Stars by John Green and Not a Fan by Kyle Idleman.
Quote - It's either "I am determined to be cheerful and happy in whatever situation I may be for I have learned from experience that the greater part of our happiness and misery is based upon our disposition and not upon our circumstances," which was said by Martha Washington or "I have been crucified with Christ so that I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I live in the body I live by faith in the one true son of God," which comes from Galations 2:20.
