College Visit to OU

Well, the day has finally come for Blaine to visit the college of his dreams, the University of Oklahoma. Since he was 5 years old, all he could talk about was going to OU. His junior year and early part of his senior year he considered staying in Texas. He was accepted to University of Mary-Hardin Baylor, Abilene Christian University, and Midwestern State. But, January rolled around and Blaine seemed to be leaning toward OU. So, we went to Oklahoma for spring break, and worked some college visits in while we were there.

We enjoyed a beautiful Oklahoma sunrise on the way to Norman.

In the Engineering building, looking down on the projects that the competition teams create.

After the general tour, then the Engineering tour, we decided to grab a bite to eat before the Petroleum Engineering tour.

OU has a beautiful campus, with a small community feel.
