CHICKASHA -- Energized by gripping media pictures of hurricane victims, and with memories still vivid of Oklahoma’s weather tragedies, three key campus leadership groups at USAO -- faculty, staff and student associations -- have joined to raise money and support for victims of hurricane Katrina.
A $250 gift from the USAO Staff Association started the ball rolling on Thursday, as various student organizations joined the campaign to help hurricane victims. Students and faculty from USAO wanted to do more than just donate cash gifts, though.
CHICKASHA – “Best in the West!” is the celebration cry echoing from campus this week as USAO has been named – for the fifth time -- the No. 1 undergraduate public college in the Western United States by U.S. News and World Report’s America’s Best Colleges. Again, that makes USAO the highest-ranked public college in Oklahoma in the annual rankings by America’s Best Colleges.

“Set goals, stay focused and be prepared.” Commencement speaker Gretchen Roddy outlined her own keys to success on Friday night, reinforcing each as she addressed graduates and their families at the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma.

She encouraged graduates first to set goals, a common practice of the world’s most successful people.
