Due to the small-school atmosphere at Oklahoma Wesleyan University, students have the chance to gain experience in many different roles during their education, learning skills beyond their intended career field. For Alyssa Willetts, class of 2018, that extra experience was instrumental in getting her where she is today.
Congratulations to Billie White and Dr. Jon Ensor, our Staff and Faculty of the Year for the 2019-2020 academic calendar!
Unless there are unforeseen events preventing Oklahoma Wesleyan University from opening campus, face-to-face classes will resume for the fall 2020 semester at the university’s Bartlesville and Tulsa campuses.
“My prayer during this season has continually been: ‘Lord teach my heart to be keenly aware of the fragility and resilience of life, so that I might have a more tender appreciation for it in every season through which I walk.'”
In the time of the COVID-19 pandemic, face-to-face connection remains inadvisable, but that isn’t stopping OKWU from doing everything it can to make the 2020 Commencement a special experience for our Eagle graduates. The university will be premier a virtual graduation event May 9, at 10:30 AM CT, taking place via Facebook. Technology will allow our graduates to connect virtually with their friends, family, and the university faculty who helped them on their way to this achievement.
Summer break brings to mind sunshine, days on the beach, and a chance to unwind from the rigors of academics for most students. This summer, enrolling in an online course at OKWU could be the best way to upgrade your college experience— without losing your summer vacation or breaking the bank.
The tagline for the event was “One Day of Extraordinary Generosity,” and that word describes the response perfectly: extraordinary!
