First Year Adventure - exclusively for freshman Honors students
Oklahoma sites serve as text for learning in First Year Adventure.
Learn music history at the OKC Philharmonic and study the Italian Renaissance at the Philbrook Museum of Art in Tulsa. Oklahoma City Museum of Art breathes life into Modernist movement art curriculum while you imagine the shock of Impressionism and post-Impressionism at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art. At each stop on the adventure, students reflect on their own aspirations to complete an undergraduate degree and to take their places as Christian leaders. Weekly Symposiums fill out the Honors First Year Adventure, sometimes hosting speakers like Biblical scholar N.T. Wright, Civil Rights attorney Fred Gray, astronaut Douglas Wheelock and Christian author Lee Strobel.
We recommend applying for honors admission before December 31; waitlisting usually begins in January. If you missed the December date, you can still apply, it’s not too late!Apply for Honors
