On Campus Events

OU Events

We want you to explore OU, to really get a hands-on experience with our faculty, staff, and students, and the best way to do that is by attending one of our on-campus events! We offer a variety of events you can attend throughout the year. 

At this time, masking will no longer be required on campus or at campus events. The university strongly recommends masking for all unvaccinated individuals and guests 2-11 years of age when inside OU's academic, athletic, housing, and administrative facilities. Please review the University's masking policy. We appreciate your understanding as we continue to prioritize the health and safety of our staff, students, and visitors, and we certainly hope to see you on campus soon.
