Current Oklahoma Baptist University students will give prospective students a real-life idea of what OBU is like during the first of five Be-A-Bison Days on the university's campus Friday, Sept. 19.
Students will be paired up with members of The Herd, a student organization which assists the admissions process and recruitment of new students at Oklahoma Baptist University. Prospective students will attend chapel and classes, eat in the Aramark cafeteria and get an inside look into dorm life.
The day is geared towards prospective students with a cumulative ACT score above a 28. The higher achieving students also will be able to meet with professors about honors programs and learn how OBU can be academically challenging for them.
"We want them here at OBU," said Trent Argo, OBU's dean of enrollment management. "Students will be able to go around to their specific areas of interest and meet faculty."
Be-A-Bison Day is primarily for students who already have been accepted to OBU. Students interested in attending Be-A-Bison Day can sign up on the OBU Web site (http://www.okbu.edu/) or contact the OBU admissions office at (800) 654-3285. Other upcoming admissions events include Fall Preview Day, open to all students on Saturday, Oct. 4, and Night on the Hill, Sunday, Nov. 16 and Monday, Nov. 17. The next Be-A-Bison Day will be Friday, Oct. 31.
