Freshmen rate OCU high

College Choice recently ranked Oklahoma City University as No. 31 among the best universities in the western United States.

The college rankings website publishes the list to help students in their college search efforts. The standings are based on surveys of college freshmen by the Higher Education Research Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles.

OCU’s "unique learning initiatives" were cited, including its honors program, OCULeads, and the Center for Interpersonal Studies through Film and Literature.

Deadline is Dec. 15 to apply for a grant of up to $5,000 through the Van Sickle Small Rural Church Fund.

Complete the simple application form online at www.okumc.org/forms,  or email Claudean Harrison, who is a Conference associate lay leader, at clharrison@aol.com

A Board of Laity subcommittee will review applicants and forward selections to the Cabinet and bishop for approval. Awards will be announced by early February.
