OCU welcomes Class of 2021At Oklahoma City University, the fall semester officially began Aug. 21 with the start of classes. But for the Class of 2021, their first year of college began the previous week, Stars Week, with a full slate of events designed to introduce freshmen to campus and college life.
Members of The Interfraternity Council assisted students moving into Walker Hall, the freshman dormitory, on Monday and Tuesday. New students were then welcomed by student volunteers and OCU staff at the OCU outdoor pavilion, with goody bags full of gifts and helpful information. Stars Week included the Religious Life Block Party and campus-wide Welcome Picnic, book discussions and a presentation by acclaimed author Josh Neufeld, concerts and pep rallies, and the Matriculation worship service with guest speaker Art LaFrancois.
On par with enrollment in previous years, OCU welcomed 296 new freshmen and 220 new graduate students. The United Methodist university’s diverse student body includes people from every U.S. state and 51 other countries.
