ALUMNUS OF THE YEAR AWARDS -- Submit a nomination HERE by March 15.

It's time to nominate deserving alumni for a  2017 ALUMNUS OF THE YEAR AWARD. The awards are for
distinguished service to God, the community, the alma mater, and "in every person's world." The deadline is
March 15. Awards will be presented at Homecoming 2017, Nov. 10-11.


ORU celebrated the grand opening of the beautiful new debt-free Global Learning Center on January 11; watch the video here.
This building will help make Spirit-empowered whole person education more accessible to students worldwide.
Work on the new debt-free ONEOK Sports Complex is also moving forward; check out the video on the alumni Facebook
page: This will be a wonderful facility for our track and field athletes and our tennis teams...
and for the community. The next big campaign project is the apartment-style residence hall for upperclassmen.

There's a $55 million stretch goal, and at this point, we have received $49.5 million in gifts and commitments. You can help us
finish this race by April 30. Just click here. Thank you!
