The campus family mourns the loss of a longtime friend to the college and the Chickasha community. Elwood “Hop” Hopkins, 85, died Sunday, May 23, after a long illness. He is the father of Jim Hopkins, a computer specialist at USAO, and the husband of Mary Hopkins, retired alumni director and former secretary to the president.
Services are scheduled Wednesday at 1:30 p.m. in the Chapel of Sevier Funeral Home in Chickasha.
She imagines herself in international relations one day, but for now, Mellody Bollinger plans to work hard as the new president of the USAO Student Association, building bridges, fighting apathy and hoping for the safe return of her fiancé from Iraq.
Bollinger took office in April as student president at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma. She graduated from Broken Arrow High School in 2001. She is now, at 21, a senior at USAO with a double major of political science and history. She expects to graduate next spring.
FARMERS BRANCH, Texas - Armed with a simple piece of advice "Keep your head still" and with one swing of the bat, USAO senior Kristin Kauk belted a rare inside-the-park home run to spark the Drovers to two straight wins over No. 3 Houston Baptist and take their first-ever regional softball championship late Friday night.

Fourteen USAO students were inducted in the HYPATIA Honor Society, USAO’s only campus wide honor society, on March 29, 2004 at a noon luncheon. The Hypatia Honor Society was founded in 1923 to honor students for their high academic achievements, character and integrity, and service to the university and their community. The honor society was named after Hypatia, the famous Greek female mathematician. Students are selected for Hypatia by a faculty committee, and it is not possible for any student to apply for membership in the Honor Society.
