“USAO's innovative programs and rigorous curriculum continue to attract and challenge
bright and curious students; and as its President, I am honored to serve this extraordinary
institution for the good of Oklahoma’s commonwealth.” - President Kayla Hale
At Oklahoma's public liberal arts college, USAO offers small classes, highly-qualified
faculty and a commitment to undergraduate education that you'd expect from a small
private college--at a price you'd find in a state school.
At USAO you will get a distinctive, transformative educational experience. Our innovative
and creative core curriculum, combined with superior instruction in major fields of
study, will prepare you to challenge and change the world in which you live--creating
a future of your own.
From award-winning performers and speakers to art exhibits and student performances,
there is always something happening at USAO. We work hard to keep the calendar filled
with exciting and intellectually stimulating events.
At USAO we have a long history of athletic success in all of our sports. Cheer on
the Drovers as they compete in 13 NAIA sports.
At USAO we are committed to creating a vibrant, residential college experience where
you can be yourself and enjoy all the university has to offer.
