Why Do Texans Choose OU? 

Texas students choose the University of Oklahoma because of its impeccable quality, ideal size, affordability and also because it is so close to home. Known for its academic excellence, rich traditions and strong sense of community, OU provides a major college experience in a private college atmosphere. Although home to almost 19,000 undergraduate students, the campus has a small-college feel. It is difficult to contain excitement in the fall when the flower beds blush crimson and the campus shakes with the Boomer-Sooner game day yell of more than 80,000 fans.

Do you need information/help applying to OU?

If so, in addition to contacting the
OU Office of Prospective Student Services in Norman, there are now two local contacts to answer your questions.  The North Texas representatives are members of OU Prospective Student Services, live in the DFW Metroplex, and are responsible for recruiting Texas students interested in attending OU. In this capacity the North Texas Recruiters regularly visit High Schools to meet with students and counselors, and provide materials concerning college life at OU.

High School Academic Recruiting Volunteer Opportunities

Every fall most high schools in the North Texas area participate in "High School College Nights". Typically these events take place during a two-week period in September and features representatives from universities (and local alumni representatives) to visit with interested students and parents who have an interest in attending selected colleges.

Members of the OU Club of Dallas routinely assist OU Prospective Student Services by staffing these events.  For more information on how you can volunteer, please visit or contact Katy Decker, our scholarship chair.
