Welcome Sooners Fan
Thanks for visiting our Sooners site deep in the heart of central Texas. As you know, being a proud Oklahoma Sooners fan or alumnus in BEVO's backyard can be challenging. Of all the OU clubs around the country and world, I'm willing to bet Austin is as close to being 'behind enemy lines' as a Sooner can get!
That's why we're here. In addition to the camaraderie and shared enjoyment of Sooner academic and athletic events in our area, our members play a vital role in working as ambassadors on behalf of the University of Oklahoma at different events throughout the year.
So please take a look around our site, join us at our events, and feel free to contact us with questions. We're always looking for Sooner Volunteers to help advance our cause and project our presence.
President, OU Club of Austin
The OU Club of Austin is for all Friends, Fans, and Alumni of the University of Oklahoma. We gather for activities all year round and welcome visitors and guests at all our get-togethers.
We host watch parties for Sooner sports and attend games in the area. We also hold special events like barbeques and picnics as social gatherings for like-minded Fans and Alumni of OU. From time to time, we host special guests from the university as a way to promote what's going on at the Norman, OKC, and Tulsa campuses and to keep Alumni in touch with the university community.
In addition, we assist the university in the recruitment of area high school students. We currently offer three scholarships for graduating high school seniors from the greater Austin/Central Texas area who apply to and are accepted for attending OU in the following fall semester.

- Special Events with athletic, academic, and special interest speakers from OU **
