Kelly over at Kelly's Korner Blog is hosting show us your Alma Maters and if you've been around here very long you know that I love mine!
I moved from Florida to attend the University of Oklahoma and even though most people thought I was crazy...
So, I left my beautiful coastal state for a landlocked one with winters. Sometimes in March when it's still cold here and my friends that stayed in Florida are enjoying the beach I occasionally have a fleeting moment of thinking I am crazy. In the end I am pretty sure it is the football that won me over!
The tradition, the passion, (the winning!) I love it all!
I think our campus is one of the prettiest there is (and I've been to a lot of campuses)! I love that in the Student Union the walls are lined with framed photographs of past and current students, it really gives it that family feel that President Boren was going for.While athletics (football) is a huge part of the University, they really strive to make sure that academics are equally as important (I should know I had 9 majors all in different departments)
Every year I travel to a few away games, this year I went to my first ever bowl game (and I guess I was the lucky charm they needed because we won!)
Last summer we even got the chance to head up to Omaha for the College World Series!
(don't worry we ended up winning this game!)
The experiences I've had and the people I've met from OU are amazing, so on those cold winter days with no ocean in sight I know that I made the right decision when I decided to come to The University of Oklahoma!
