President John Feaver highlighted the distinctive public liberal arts mission of the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma for the 74 graduates, faculty, family and friends at the Fall commencement.
“Here, no matter what your major field might be, your chosen realm in which you’re going to do your in depth study, we are going to require you to think and behave in light of the many questions that must be answered by those who belong to a democratic society,” Feaver said.
To all of our students, faculty, staff, alumni, family and friends who have made 2014 our best year yet, we wish you all a happy holidays and a bright and productive new year!
