Parents weekend is coming soon!

We're planning a very special Parents Weekend for Friday and Saturday, Jan. 20  and 21, 2017. It's for the parents (and adults who have filled the role of parents) of current ORU students. Click here to RSVP.  The agenda features a wide variety of activities, such as dorm open houses, campus tours, worship services, a unique student-parent session, parent-student activities, Golden Eagle men's basketball...and free time to spend with your child.  A special treat:  dinner with President Wilson in the new Global Learning Center and tours of this beautiful new building! Be sure to RSVP by Jan. 11. If you have any questions, please call Alumni Relations at 918.495.6610 or e-mail  


ORU will celebrate the grand opening of the new Global Learning Center in January. This building will help make Spirit-empowered whole person education more accessible to students worldwide. Work on the new ONEOK Sports Complex is also moving forward. This will be a wonderful facility for our track and field athletes and our tennis teams...and for the community. The next big project is the apartment-style residence hall for upperclassmen.

There's a $55 million "stretch" goal, and we're at 87% in gifts and commitments. You can help us finish this race; just click here if you
would like to do so. Thank you!
