Approving a new $9.5 million budget for the upcoming year that barely covers fixed-cost increases like insurance, the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma Board of Regents has agreed to raise tuition this fall, and to grant the first pay raise in three years for faculty and staff.
The average student will pay about $289 more per year – or about the price of an MP3 player.
USAO President John Feaver called the increases “necessary under difficult budget constraints.”
From the time a British quartet and a country boy from Memphis made appearances on the Ed Sullivan Show in the early 1950s, the American music scene was forever changed. The Beatles, Elvis Presley and many other artists brought “rock and roll” music to America’s teenagers.
Join President John Feaver tonight (May 26) at 9 p.m. to welcome home the Drover Softball Team. Refreshments will be served in Scooters (in the Student Center Terrace Room). Come show your support for an amazing team with spirit and ambition, having earned a school record 49 wins this season!
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.
