marching toward commencement ...

On May 6, we'll celebrate the Class of 2017 -- our 50th graduating class! You're invited to come to the Mabee Center
for the 1:00 p.m. ceremony; it's going to be unlike any other in ORU's history. Former regents, current and former trustees,
Board of Reference members, and Alpha Class alumni will march in with the 2017 grads. Don't miss this!

In addition to Commencement, we have several more events to look forward to this spring. We hope you can join us
for BBQ, brunch, breakfast, or Grad Launch. Scroll down to Upcoming Events and click on the links for more information.
And don't forget to mark your calendar for Homecoming 2017, Nov. 10-11. The theme is UNITE!


We're getting close to the $55 million stretch goal--and you can help us FINISH STRONG by April 30.
Here's an update on our projects:

  • The beautiful new debt-free Global Learning Center is open.
  • Construction continues on the new debt-free ONEOK Sports Complex, opening this fall.
  • Quest Whole Person Scholarships: Much has been raised, much more is needed.
  • Building the apartment-style residence hall for upperclassmen will require a lead gift and additional contributions
    so that we can build this structure debt-free. With enrollment continuing to rise, we're running out of rooms!                                             

There's still time for you to make a difference. Click here to offer your support.
