The OU Club of Houston is a non-profit 501(c) (7) organization, providing opportunities for fellowship, accomplishment, enrichment and fun to all Sooner alumni, family and friends throughout the greater Houston area. Since 1963, the Club has been a great way for Houston Sooners to connect with one another as well as the University of Oklahoma.
One of the Club's primary objectives is to award scholarship money to outstanding high school students living in the Houston area who plan to attend the University of Oklahoma. In addition to raising and awarding these scholarships each year, the Club also assists the university with recruitment efforts at Houston-area high schools.
The OU Club also works to keep the Sooner spirit strong. Club events for Houston Sooners range from watch parties and networking functions to philanthropic events,happy hours, the annual Beat Texas party, and sponsorship of Sooner football radio broadcasts.
The OU Club of Houston offers something for everyone throughout the year. STAKE YOUR CLAIM to excellence and fun by becoming a member of the OU Club of Houston.
Fellow Houston Sooners:
For more than a half century, The OU Club of Houston has sought to bring the University of Oklahoma experience to the Texas Gulf Coast.
We've done that in a number of ways: supporting efforts to recruit area high school students to attend The University, hosting special events locally with top academic and athletic leaders from Norman, and providing scholarships to Houston area high school seniors. Our alumni chapter has sought to be of service to the alma mater.
Now, our goal is to be of service to you. We want The OU Club of Houston to stand for community, camaraderie and connection. As Houston Sooners, it's time we got to know one another better and have ourselves some fun!
In 2013 we began moving In that direction. The past twelve months have seen a dramatic upgrade in our football watch parties, a commitment to younger alums through monthly happy-hours events, and the launch of a pair of successful community-service initiatives with our "rivals" from the University of Texas. Our OU Club ranks have grown and our brand has become prominent. We've made it very clear you can't spell "H-O-U-S-T-O-N" without "OU."
If you're already a member, long-time or first-time, we say thank you. If you've yet to sign up, we encourage you to join our ranks today. Bookmark our website, "Like Us" on Facebook, and follow us on Twitter. Keep up to date with our many activities and invite your Sooner friends to become a part of our Houston network.
Most importantly, make time to attend one of our many club activities.
In Houston, the University of Oklahoma community is large--more than 8,000 graduates--and growing. We all share a common heritage and a rich legacy We're all imbued with that special something known as "Sooner Spirit." And we all understand, that Spirit thrives most in the company of others with whom we share our common bond:
"There's Only One Oklahoma."
On behalf of The OU Club of Houston, I look forward to meeting you soon.
