covers over 3,000 acres. The architecture on campus is a distinctive blend –known as Cherokee Gothic– and incorporates OU’s ties to its local history. With 21,000 undergraduate students and close to 30,000 students in total, OU employs over 3,000 faculty members and offers nearly 400 degrees. The U.S. National Weather Center headquarters are also located at the University of Oklahoma.

OU is ranked first out of public universities for the number of National Merit Scholars enrolled at a public university. There are more than 300 student clubs and organizations incoming students can be a part of -freshmen are required to live on campus for the entirety of their first year. Over 40% of the student body is involved in Greek life.

The Sooners, OU’s Division I athletic teams, compete in the Big 12 Conference and are represented by the Sooner Schooner mascot (an old-time frontier wagon). The Sooner football team has been a force to reckon with and holds the highest winning percentage of any program since 1936 (inaugural year of the AP Poll).

Notable Alumni include L.A. Clippers’ Blake Griffin, former U.S. House Majority Leader Dick Armey, and the first Latina governor in the U.S., Susana Martinez (New Mexico).
