OKWU Creative Impact

Here at OKWU, we’re remembering 2021 as a wonderful year of God’s grace and provision.

God is good – all the time. Through a tumultuous 2020 and 2021, God’s grace has been abundantly evident to the OKWU family. As we look hopefully to the future, let’s celebrate what was! From wintry campus days to magical mornings on campus, check out this 2021 recap through some of the year’s best photos.

Campus Covered – December (2020)

All right, we’re cheating here – this one’s from the snowfall in December of 2020. But can you blame us for including it?

One Day of Generosity – March

It’s always fun to get students involved with our campaigns. This year, we asked them to literally put a face to the reason OKWU exists, and help us thank our community of donors for their support. 

Super Flower Blood Moon  

The past year was amazing for campus stargazing! In the winter, we witnessed the conjunction of Saturn and Jupiter, and this summer we caught some beautiful views of the only total lunar eclipse of 2021 right over campus.  

Graduation: A New Chapter

In May, we loved to see everyone excited for our first in-person commencement since 2020. These girls were ready to celebrate for the camera, just like so many others who had the accomplishment of making it through a difficult year to reach graduation.

Changed Lives this Summer  

Normally during the summer, we’re just waiting for students to get back on campus. But during a number of summer camps OKWU hosted, we were blessed to be a small part of  35 high school students’ baptisms. What an incredible movement of the Lord! 

 kingdom nursing 

Despite the ongoing difficulties of the pandemic, we were grateful to share the story of one alumnus serving as a nurse in a Covid-19 unit in this year’s Tower magazine. We were inspired by Micah’s role in bringing David from a ventilator back to health and the friendship they developed.  

Fall Move-In Day  

There’s nothing like the start of a new year! On Move-in Day this August, even Dr. Dunn was getting in on the hype. 


Running for Mackenzie Smith  

This fall, students decided to support a fellow classmate battling cancer, Mackenzie Smith, by having a color run around campus. We’re proud to see students supporting a fellow Eagle! 

Early morning on campus

We never get tired of seeing the seasons change here on campus, especially on those magical fall days when the sunlight hits the fog on the pond just right.

Merry Christmas!

We hope you and yours have a wonderful Christmas weekend celebrating the birth of our Savior. Enjoy the Winter Break, and we’ll see you in January, Eagles!
