Hello again! From the title of this blog, you may be wondering, “Sports on campus? Isn’t football season over?” While fall has long past, fear not, Baby Sooners! There are so many more sports to check out at the University of Oklahoma. Here in Norman, you can come support 9 different men’s and 8 different women’s sports teams, including rowing, tennis, rugby, and so much more! Even better, except for football and men’s basketball, your student ID will get you into these games for free! Read more

Hello again, friends! We are now in the Spring 2012 semester of the school year, which can only mean one thing: new classes!

If you are not familiar with the skill of time management, learn ASAP! Here at OU, there’s so much for you to do almost all the time. This doesn’t mean that you’re just bombarded with homework 24/7, but more like this huge combination of school, organizations, friends, and (hopefully) sleep. It’s really not like high school when you have a lot to do from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and then something after school; instead, you always have something to do. That being said, this is NOT a bad thing at all! I love always having things to do and people to see! 🙂 However, if you don’t know how to use your time most efficiently, it can get extremely overwhelming.

Hello again, readers! You may have watched the OU/TX game a few weeks ago (55-17, Boomer Sooner!), but there’s definitely a whole lot more that goes on around campus that week.

OU/TX is not just any old game here at OU; it’s a time where thousands of OU fans, whether alums, current and prospective students, faculty, or just avid views, come together to celebrate our school spirit. And it’s not just for people who are huge fans of football! At OU, everyone get rallied full of school spirit during OU/TX week! You’ll hear random people shouting “Boomer!” and always a “Sooner!” in reply. And literally everyone will be talking about who’s going to Dallas that weekend and how much we’re going to beat them by.  It’s a great way to show the essence of school spirit throughout OU.

Even if you don’t get tickets to the game, you should still go down to Dallas! It’s only a three hour drive from Norman and there’s plenty of things to do there. You can even go to the Texas State Fair (which is huge, by the way) the day of the game and see the arena! You can also relax with all the rides and delicious fair food. It’s a great weekend to relax, hang out with friends, and exude school pride!

Boomer Sooner!

One of my favorite things about Sooner life is living in the dorms! Personally, I can say that living in the dorms has been so much fun! Move-in day can be overwhelming because you’re trying to organize everything just perfectly, but don’t worry about it too much. With thousands of people moving in to the same tower, it gets a little hectic! Especially since it was raining this year! Also, don’t expect your room to look and be decorated perfectly the first day. My roommate and I are still working on our room to look just like we want it, and we’ve been here over a month.
