Helpful reminders for your OU student

Sooner Parents

  • Remind your student that attending class regularly — whether required or not — and keeping up with assignments are essential to academic success!
  • If your student is experiencing homesickness, encourage involvement with a campus organization or a campus ministry. Check out Student Life for more information. Student Life 900 Asp Avenue, Suite 370 or call (405) 325-3163.
  • If your student is experiencing academic difficulties or trouble adjusting to a college course load, suggest that he or she contact [email protected] to discuss their concerns — earlier is better than later.
  • If other adjustment problems seem significant, encourage your student to talk with a counselor in the counseling center at Goddard Health Health Center. For more information, call (405) 325-2911.
  • Remind your student of the value of exercise and a healthy diet — suggest visiting the Sarkeys Fitness Center, signing up for intramural sports or joining a club sport.
