Staying Here On The Weekends
College is weird because, is OBU your home or is your house home? Staying at OBU on the weekends can create some awesome and insane memories and make OBU home!!
You can stay in Shawnee for the weekend but still leave the area with your friends to go to Tulsa or OKC! A girls night to downtown Tulsa or a guys night to Top Golf will be something unforgettable and make the college experience so fulfilling.
For instance, staying here means meeting up with friends and doing spontaneous things like going to Norman to the Baked Bear at 10pm or driving to Bricktown and going to Fuzzy’s! I know people who go home on the weekend and I wish they would know how much they are missing out on. While going home is always refreshing and a momma hug is needed, staying here and creating memories is what makes college so much fun!!
Taking pictures and posting on snapchat is what this generation is all about! In the following weekends I want to personally encourage you to stay here and get a group together to do SOMETHING. Below I have given a list of fun ideas and they even go in order from cheap to more expensive!
- Go play volleyball outside the RAWC
- Jam to music with the windows down
- Find a back road and take squad pics
- Go hiking
- Go to the lake
- GO TO THE PUMPKIN PATCH!!
- Have a movie night with snacks and bottles of Coke or Root Beer
- Bake brownies, cookies, cake balls, or cupcakes!
- Make a full dinner
- Go to Goodwill!!
- Go rollerblading
- Go bowling
- Go to Top Golf
- Go get a Pizookie at BJ’s
- Go to a coffee shop in Tulsa
- Go to Norman and eat at Ted’s!!
- Go to OKC and walk around Bricktown
- Go to a Thunder game
Okay…so these might soouuunndd lame, but I promise there’s such fun in making memories with the people you care about. So this weekend or next..stay here in Shawnee and get a group of friends to hang out!
When you take the time to stay in Shawnee and get involved with the community and the people around you, OBU will be home.
