Hello future Sooners!!!

I have to tell you guys that everyone here on campus is loving the beautiful weather! I notice everyone smiling as they walk down the South Oval in shorts, a tee, and sunglasses! I think it’s safe to say that we are all excited about and have been expecting the nice spring weather! Makes going to class and walking around our beautiful campus even more enjoyable.

Due to the nice weather, everyone is out and about on campus. Everyone has taken advantage of the beautiful weather by playing volleyball in the sand courts, jogging around campus, and playing frisbee on the lawn! I think we are all anticipating Spring Break and hoping the nice weather will last us.

Enough about the amazing weather though, Have you guys “Liked” the OU Class of 2016 page?! It can become an important source of information and an essential page for you to connect with other students and find out about other great things going on on campus! Also, keep checking the Future Sooners  page because this is where you’ll find information about what to do next after admission, reminders of upcoming deadlines, and information about scholarship opportunities. It may seem like it’s a million years away, but in just a couple of months you guys will be coming to campus and getting advised for the very first time!

Here are just some quick tips to take into consideration while getting advised:

1. Check out the OU Checksheets

This page has all 140+ majors and minors offered at OU & which courses to take in order to complete your degree. It is not necessary to understand everything, but it is helpful to check out the major(s) and minor(s) you are interested in.

2.  Ask Questions

Your parents will not be allowed where you are getting advised, so make sure you have a clear idea what you need to know. This is your chance to ask any question you want or may need clarified. Remember: The only stupid question is the one not asked. The University College advisers are there to help you and guide you with anything you may need. They care about you and realize that you are new to OU and aren’t familiar with everything.

3. Be honest

Remember that you need to be honest about your academic strengths and weaknesses so that your adviser can guide you to the right courses. Remember, you will need time to adapt and adjust to everything new. As exciting as it all is, it can be scary at times so you don’t want to take on too much or too little.
