Oklahoma Baptist University students scheduled to return

April 26, 2023

Statement from Dr. Heath Thomas, Oklahoma Baptist University President:

“I’ve got some very exciting news. We have been working with all of our contractors to ensure a safe return to campus, and we are returning to campus for in-person learning on Monday, May 1.

We are excited that we have received the go-ahead from all our contractors and the specialists who have done all the assessments in every space on our campus.

So, we are returning for on-campus learning on Monday. It is a miracle of God.

God’s been really good to us and we are really excited to make this announcement. We are in Hallelujah territory right here.”

Big Serve: On Saturday, OBU will host Big Serve, a volunteer campus clean-up effort, beginning at 9 a.m. Check-in will be on the Raley Chapel lawn at the RecWell tent.
