OBU Welcomes New Students to Shawnee Community

August 25, 2017

Dozens of local businesses and organizations introduced Oklahoma Baptist University students to the community during OBU’s annual “Spotlight on Shawnee” event. The event took place Thursday evening, Aug. 24, on the Oval on OBU’s campus.

Students received information, samples, giveaways and more. The annual spotlight is designed to connect students with the Shawnee community, display a variety of things available within the community and help new students feel connected to their new home.

“Spotlight on Shawnee” takes place during Welcome Week each year as the fall semester kicks off on Bison Hill. Classes began earlier that day.
