The OU Difference

Introduction 

You can get a college degree at any of hundreds of colleges, but you can only get an OU degree from the University of Oklahoma. Whatever your field of study, your life will be enriched by experiences both inside and outside the classroom. 

Contributing to the OU difference are: 

The wide variety of academic programs, the dedicated faculty, the multicultural and international student body, the unique resources, the friendly and supportive community, and the traditions developed during 127 years of striving for academic excellence all contribute to the OU difference — a difference you will benefit from and contribute to as an OU student and alumnus. 

Also contributing to the OU difference is a wealth of special programs, facilities, and resources, many of which are described in this chapter.
