Greetings, Fellow Eagles! It's been quite busy here since the last issue - including the shuffling of some offices around campus. Having been located in Enterprise Square for the last few years, we moved this week to Gaylord Hall on the 'quad'. Nice to be back in the middle of campus. However, the move has thrown us a bit behind on this newsletter, so I'll get to it.

"Engaging Faith in a Post-Truth Culture"

OC Lectures- Oct. 1-3 - For a video description of the subject by Lectureship Director Grady King ('77), go to  oc.edu/events/lectureship.

OC Honor's Summer Academy


You may be thinking that your student's freshman, sophomore, or junior year is too early to be hearing from colleges but we beg to differ. Education is a powerful tool and over the next few years, you will be hearing from a variety of colleges and universities. Beginning the college experience early provides both an opportunity to achieve incredible goals and identify potential hopes to achieve in the four years at college.

That is where OC's Honor’s Summer Academy comes into play! Honor’s Summer Academy is an opportunity for students in the 9th, 10th, or 11th grade to see what college is really about. They have the chance to earn actual, transferable college credits, learn from some of OC’s top professors and live in college dorms. HSA is July 8-13, 2018. Students choose two courses from the following areas of study: Bible, Engineering, Humanities or the Sciences. You can find more information along with an online application, course information, photos and videos at www.oc.edu/hsa

We are excited to have the opportunity to connect with you about this incredible experience. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office at honorssummeracademy@oc.edu or call Lisa (Fields) Carroll ('78), University Honors Program, Managing Director at 405-425-5300.

Children of OC alumni receive a $50 discount plus apply before January 1st to receive a $50 early discount!

North Texas Alumni Chapter Hosts Annual Dinner/Auction

On Saturday, Sept. 30, the North Texas OC Alumni Chapter will raise money for scholarships with their annual dinner and auction. The auction has largely been coordinated by alumna Suzie (Harmon) Saffell ('89), Treasurer of the chapter.  The entire NTXAC board is heavily involved in this effort to help high school students from the north Texas area with funding to get them to OC. Well over $130,000 has been raised over the 13 years of the event. 

Stafford North's Good News Newsletter

This month's issue features a great booklet which Duane Eggleston ('52) has provided for those who are aging to help them handle all the things they should prepare before their passing.  Then there are great stories about Hope for Haiti’s Children, a Seminar in the Dominican Republic, and fellowship held in Kenya.  Finally there is the results of a Gallup Poll which tells what draws people to churches and the results are quite surprising.  

To see the program for the OC Lectureship, October 1-3, go to www.oc.edu/lectureship.  The Dinner for Church Leaders and Spouses is at 5:15 to 6:30 pm on Monday, Oct. 2.   Elders, deacons, and ministers of all types are invited to hear Dr. John Knox of Grandbury, Texas, speaking on “When a Minister Serves the Community.”  Tickets will be available at the Lectureship Registration Table or by emailing  kaye.wilkerson@oc.edu.  

To submit story ideas for
 Good News contact stafford.north@oc.edu.  Be sure to share Good News with others on your personal email list and your church email list.

Well, next stop........October! Talk to you then.

In Him,
Bob Lashley ('74)
