2018 Oklahoma City University Graduation


Graduation is upon us and it’s a time for celebration and reflection. Students and parents revel in the pomp and circumstance that is a culmination of years of hard work and dedication. Strangers four years ago, when they began their foray into independence, will say their goodbyes as friends who will forever be affected by their time together at Oklahoma City University. Young adults prepare to make their unique mark upon the world armed with knowledge, drive, strength and compassion. Infinite possibilities lay in front of these graduates and they will only regret the chances not taken. 

The following students are the 22 who were nominated by their schools and campus organizations for being exemplary students not only in terms of academia, but for the standards of excellence they set for themselves. To see the detailed list, visit our Senior Highlights page
