Places to Take Your Dad this Weekend

Welcome your Dad to OU by taking him to all these cool places this weekend.

Places to Take Your Dad this Weekend

Dad's day is on it's way. This Saturday, thousands of dads from around the country will be stepping foot into Norman, Oklahoma. Many of them for the first time. The question is, what are you going to do with your dad? Here are all of the coolest places to take your dad this weekend, no matter what they like to do.

1. The Warren Theatre

Take them to the Warren Theatre in Moore, OK. See a movie in the Balcony theatre or the Director's Suite. Make sure they try the after movie mints they give you when you're leaving.

2. Hurts

You were always told your freshman year that these are the best donuts in Norman. Make sure your dad can try some too.

3. Classic 50's Drive in

Same deal with Hurts. It's talked about all the time. Take them to go get a Sprittle.

4. Thunder Game

If he's going to be in town on Friday night, and he's a basketball fan, the Thunder are playing the LA Clippers.

5. Loot & XP

Loot & XP is a cafe where you can play all sorts of board games. From classics like The Game of Life or more detailed ones like Ticket to Ride. It's a really great place to sit and talk while being engaged in something fun.

6. Campus Tour

Sure you can go on one given by a tour guide, but then you wouldn't be able to show your dad all your favorite spots. You can also take him to the two museums on campus for an added bonus.

7. Downtown OKC

There are tons of things to do in Downtown OKC. Go visit the Myriad Gardens, visit some bars, take a water taxi ride, or just walk around playing Pokémon Go.

8. Tailgate

Visit your fraternity, sorority, or club's tailgate before the game so you can get full of that game day spirit.

9. Riverwind

Go try and win some gas money for his drive back home.

10. The Baylor Game

Enjoy a good ole OU football game and cheer us on as we beat Baylor this weekend.

Have a fun and safe Dad's day and Boomer Sooner!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
