President's Message: Fall 2021

Greetings, Alumni & Friends,

What a whirlwind it has been! How else could I describe my first four months as Oklahoma City University president?

From moving into Wilson House, to settling into my office in the Administration Building, to throwing out the first pitch at an Oklahoma City Dodgers game, to helping our first-year students move into the dorms, to hopping from spot to spot on campus for meet-and-greets, to ... you get it – it’s been an eventful first few months on campus!

I’ve been so pleased to get to meet an array of OCU stakeholders, especially our proud alumni. We have more than 45,000 alumni around the world, including many prominent community and business leaders, lawyers, doctors, nurses, civic leaders, performing arts stars, and changemakers across all walks of life.

Many of you once called campus home. I want you to know as I begin my time as part of the OCU family that you can always come home to OCU.

If you’re still in the Oklahoma City area, I encourage you to return home by dropping by campus to attend a sporting event, to check out the latest exhibit at the art gallery, to pop in and visit a former professor, or to find a way to mentor our current students.

If you’ve settled a little further away, either in the U.S. or one of the far corners of the world, you can return home by connecting with the OCU Alumni Office, seeing if there’s an alumni chapter where you live, or visiting our alumni website and social media channels.

We have a diverse community here at OCU, and our alumni are a big part of that. Wherever you are, know that your success is OCU’s success, and vice versa.

So, get connected and be engaged, because together we can continue to make OCU great.

Welcome home, alumni!

— Kenneth R. Evans
