January Newsletter

We hope everyone has had a great start to their 2013!  Even though football season has come to an end, we still have some exciting months ahead of us for the OU Club of Colorado.  We have basketball watch parties, a Thunder game, the Future Sooners Reception and our scholarship application is now available! 
OU vs Kansas Basketball Watch Party
Saturday, January 26th the OU Men’s basketball team will travel to Lawrence to take on the #3 Kansas Jayhawks.  The game tips off at 2:00 MST.  We will be planning a few basketball watch parties this season and THIS Saturday will be our first official one.  Come to Stoney’s to watch the game with other OU fans. Stoney’s is also home to the Kansas alumni group. 
OKC Thunder and OU Club of Colorado Night Out 
If you have not already, get your discounted club level seats for the March 1st Thunder/Nuggets game.  We reserved 100 tickets and only have about 10 left. To purchase tickets visit: www.nuggetstix.com/ouclubofcolorado or contact Brad Currier at 303-405-1334 for tickets and questions.  We will host a happy hour prior to the event with more details on that to come. 
2013-2014 Scholarship Applications
I am pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for our 2013-2014 scholarships.  Applications can be turned in from now until the May 1st deadline. The application is attached with more information or you can find it online through our website here:https://ouclubofco.files.wordpress.com/2012/05/scholarship-app-2013-template.pdf. A big thanks to Haley Wallace for volunteering to chair the committee again this year as well as the number of members that have volunteered to sit on the committee.  For anyone that is familiar with our past scholarship form, we have two important changes to this year’s application.  We are now offering a choice of three different essay questions (only need to choose one question) as well as requiring a copy of an unofficial high school or college transcript for all applicants.  For scholarship questions, please do not hesitate to email Haley or Kristin atouclubofco@gmail.com   
Campus Wide Scholarship 
Since our club has expanded so much and we have been able to raise more and more money each year, we want to offer a fun scholarship for current students.  A few years ago the OU Club of Colorado purchased a bench on campus.  This year we will be offering a $2000 scholarship ($1000 from the club and $1000 matched by the university) for the student that sends us the most creative picture centered/based around the OU Club of Colorado’s donated bench (located by the dorms on Lindsay St). 
Guidelines: We ask the pictures be in good taste and sent to ouclubofco@gmail.com.  In addition to the picture, applicants will also have to fill out a short application to be eligible (essay not needed) and send in an unofficial transcript from OU.  The club will post the pictures to our Facebook page and the top 5 pictures with the most “likes” will be the finalists decided on by the scholarship committee.  Email us with any questions or if you would like additional information. 
Future Sooner Reception  
We are finalizing the details of our upcoming Future Sooner Reception, which will be held on Wednesday, March 13th at 7pm at the University Club in Denver.  If you know someone that is looking at OU and would like to attend the reception, please contact Carissa Cummins at Carissa@ou.edu.  Carissa is the Student Service representative that works with Colorado students.  Official invitations to the event will be sent out soon.
