Located halfway between the Atlantic and Pacific coasts at the boundary between the eastern woodlands and the vast western prairie, the University of Oklahoma is a gathering place for students and scholars from across the nation and around the globe. Students are attracted primarily by the high quality of the faculty and academic programs, outstanding research facilities, and unique resources at OU. The relatively low cost of attendance adds to OU’s international appeal. Scholars also appreciate the mild Oklahoma climate, the varied cultural environment and the friendly, informal atmosphere of the University community.
