OU Bound helps admitted students through the process of joining the Sooner family!
The University of Oklahoma is simplifying the process of becoming a Sooner by launching an exciting new mobile app for incoming freshmen. The OU Bound app helps Future Sooners navigate those tasks and deadlines from admission to OU through the first day of class and automatically updates items they’ve completed.
“We’re proud to release OU Bound, the first app of its kind to concentrate on the experience for incoming students,” said Nick Hathaway, executive vice president. “This is an exciting venture, and the first of many for the University of Oklahoma in continuously improving the student experience.”
The University of Oklahoma recognized the challenge incoming students face as they make their final preparations for college. The months leading up to a student’s first day of class can be a challenging time as they manage multiple decisions, deadlines and forms. That’s why OU designed an app that presents an interactive roadmap of every step students take when joining the Sooner family and automatically updates after important milestones. Everything students need to know — from applying for scholarships and housing to Camp Crimson— is in one place.
“OU Bound streamlines the process and helps students keep track of everything they need to do to become a Sooner,” said Andy Roop, executive director of Recruitment Services. “Students receive an ‘OU Bound’ pennant in their admission packet, and this app ties in perfectly with that. It lets them know they’re on their way to the University of Oklahoma and we’re making that process of getting here and getting enrolled as simple as it can be for them.”
This one-of-a-kind app tracks students’ progress and automatically updates once tasks are complete. Students can add deadlines and events to their digital calendars from within the app. OU Bound even connects students to university advisers, helpful information about OU and upcoming campus events.
The free OU Bound app is available now to Future Sooners through the Apple App store and Google play.
The University of Oklahoma strives to enhance the student experience through innovative technology and digital tools like the OU Bound app, iTunes U and interactive Janux courses, as well as the One University store. Through its commitment to the One University digital initiative, OU is using cutting-edge technology to shape the future of education. OU Bound is just the first in a suite of apps OU will create to enhance the student experience.
