Campus safety on Norman's campus is impeccable. We recently had a shooting scare, and within minutes, a text message and emails were sent out to nearly every student making them aware of the situation. Most students, unless their emergency contact information was not up to date, were immediately notified of the safety threat, and within ten minutes there were at least a dozen cop cars, from the OU and Norman Police Departments, on campus. They responded extremely quickly, and I am confident that if there were a real emergency (because this one turned out to be a false alarm) they would respond with the same speed and efficiency as they did for this. The campus really bands together in times of need. Campus corner is the place to go for nightlife, there are many good restaurants and bars that you can go to with your friends as well as several boutiques if you want to go shopping, and there is even one where people go to dance. We are also not far from Oklahoma City, so if you want to go to a bigger mall or city with more options, it is as easy as a 20 or 30 minute trip up I-35. The football games are the best part of the Fall Semester, and our football team is usually very good. Everyone comes out to tailgate and go to the game. On nice weather days, people can be seen sitting outside, reading or just talking, in many of the grassy areas on campus. This university is truly my favorite place in the country, and I would not want to spend my college days anywhere else.

You can never say, " Am bored" because there is always something going on you just have to get out and find it. There are so many excellent organizations you can participant in, it is hard to chose from. As I mention before majority of everyone here are very friendly and are also looking to make friends and have fun whether it is watching movies, going to the mall or even going to parties together so the social atmosphere is amazing. As far as safety they are doing a pretty good job I make it to my dorm room any time am out late and they have plenty of emergency booths and organization like safe walk and safe ride so you don't have to walk alone or get stuck anywhere in Norman.
