Imagine that you're an international student coming to OC as a Freshmen for the first time this fall, and all you can bring with you for the next year is two suitcases and whatever you can carry on to the plane. Now imagine stepping off the plane after traveling for 24 hours and having to head immediately to Wal-Mart to purchase everything else (sheets, a pillow, a blanket, and several other essential items) before you can get settled in your new college dorm room on campus.
Each year, this scenario is reality for more and more new international students who are choosing to study at Oklahoma Christian University. One of their biggest needs once they arrive on campus is setting up their dorm rooms, and now you can help meet that need for them.
Donations from OC alumni and friends are needed to help set up dorm rooms for new international student from China, Rwanda, Honduras and many other countries around the world. For each donation of $150, OC will purchase many of the necessary dorm room items and put them in the room of one international student.
Click here to give $25, $50, $75, $150 or more to help welcome OC's international students to campus this fall. Any extra money that is raised beyond what is needed to meet the needs of this year's international students will go to help students next year.
Thank you in advance for helping us make OC feel more like home to our students from around the world! If you'd like to include a personal note with your Welcome to OC kit, please contact Joslyn Hill at (405) 425-5475 after making your donation.
