Boomer Sooner

Welcome back to school. It is a strange feeling to go back to school as an older student, going full-time. Yet, here I am. I’ve already taken two classes the last couple of nights, one more to go tomorrow. Wide-eyed and bushy-tailed — maybe this is a good way to describe me these days. I’m learning so much, not only inside the classroom but outside, as well. Lately, I’ve been doing some exploration of the campus with my bike.

Today, I decided to take a picture of the stadium where the No. 1 ranked Sooner football team holds their practice and games. I pass by it almost everyday. Yesterday, I saw the news van parked outside the gate, maybe doing a report on team practice. I don’t think I’ll get a ticket this year, though. Maybe next year.

One thing I noticed about this campus is how much school pride the students have. Most people wear crimson and cream (the school colors). I’ve already gotten at least three OU T-shirts for free from different campus departments, not to mention pens, highlighters, mugs, fridge magnets, etc. Everywhere I look, there is some sign of OU Sooner pride.

All my classes are held in this building. I like the red-brick design, a common theme in OU campus architecture. Faculty offices, student classrooms, administration, study lounges, and computer labs are located within this three-story building. Quite convenient.

However, the building where I seem to spend most of my time is the main campus library. I haven’t even begun exploring its vast resources. The quick library tour during orientation only touched the surface of researching possibilities.
