Even though we can’t invite you to campus, we want to stay connected.
“I think at first, I really struggled. You’re watching these people suffer on a horrific level. But the thing that gets you through that is seeking Jesus’ presence always. Seeing him present with our patients and with us, as a protector and a defender.”
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.
The tagline for the event was “One Day of Extraordinary Generosity,” and that word describes the response perfectly: extraordinary!
