Officials are hosting a “30 Under 30” luncheon during All Alumni Weekend.
The luncheon is to celebrate and honor 30 alumni under 30 years old who have made significant contributions to the community, their profession or the university.
“We want to encourage alumni to come back on campus while also getting to recognize them,” said Marianne Hosler, coordinator of alumni relations.
There was a submission period for nominations that ended in January, and winners were then selected by a committee.
“Current students can meet people in the fields they want to go into who are successful, in hopes that they will be inspired,” Hosler said.
The luncheon will take place at 11 a.m. April 22 in the Great Hall in Tom and Brenda McDaniel University Center.
“I think it’s important to see realistic examples of success from your school,” said Danielle Pike, acting sophomore. “It gives you an idea of the variety of successful paths that OCU can give you, and you can learn from the wisdom of those who have already gone out into the real world and had real world experience.”
This will be the second time OCU hosts an All Alumni Weekend. Other activities during the weekend include sporting events, mixers and a distinguished alumni dinner.
All students, faculty and community members can purchase lunch tickets for $15. Ticket details and a full schedule of All Alumni Weekend can be found at okcu.edu/aw17.
“I’d definitely be interested in attending an event like this just to see what I can learn from fellow stars who have had more time and distance from the school to learn how to apply all they learned here,” Pike said.
