McIntosh Conservatory Flooring

McIntosh Conservatory Flooring

There's a whole lot of carpet in our beloved Garvey Center and it's all starting to show the wear of 20 years of great service. As the "front door" of campus, Garvey is the building that welcomes nearly all of our campus visitors and prospective students. We think it's time to replace our well-loved floors so that we can make the best first impression possible. Welcome home, everyone!

Campus Infrastructure and Technology Fund

Campus Infrastructure and Technology Fund

Infrastructure is crucial. Streaming high-speed academic content (or Netflix) for over 2,000 people takes a lot of networking juice and requires a big investment in technology. Meanwhile, keeping campus safe, functional, and comfortable--from roads to sidewalks to roofs to trees--also takes a big investment. This fund aims to boost our infrastructure on both counts: keeping us on the cutting edge of online tech and making campus look and work better than ever!

Academic Strategic Launch Fund

At Oklahoma Christian, we use every last academic dollar at our disposal to provide quality learning experiences for our students--and we work hard to use every dollar well. That means we're limited on funds to experiment and take risks on new academic programs. This fund will give us the start-up capital to do just that: to take the next innovative leap in OC academics.
