OU is the perfect size for a big university. The campus looks huge at first, but after walking it, it seems smaller than it appears. We're known for our athletics so football season is always the best time of year at OU. The trip to Dallas for OU v Texas is a must! We even get the Friday before the game off of school for it! Campus corner has bars, shopping, restaurants, and cafes right across the street from campus. Definitely a college town, but close to Oklahoma City if you want a bigger city to visit. We take a lot of pride in our school and we'll be sure every Texas fan knows we're the best!
The Engineering department is great. The courses were rigorous and I was always challenged on my path to excellence. Every year the College of Engineering has Engineering Week were we have activities throughout the week, ending with a Fluid Dynamics Lab at one of the local bars. It's great time to have a beer with your fellow students and professors. The career services at OU is great. I got my job by having my resume posted on the schools website!
Most students are from Oklahoma City or the Dallas area. About half the Freshman student body goes Greek. There are lots of houses and a variety of Greek students. Individual houses have a stereotype, but the I don't believe the Greek system as a whole does. There's always of variety of classroom styles. From sweatpants to dresses. People wear whatever.
