Fraternities and sororities are about creating lifelong friendships, rich with heritage and bound together by common values. The OKCU Greek community stands on the four pillars of leadership, community service, scholarship, and friendship.

We offer two worship services each week. The University Chapel service is held on Thursdays at 1 p.m. A more contemporary service, known as Evensong, meets at 8 p.m. on Monday evenings. The Wesley Center is the United Methodist campus ministry open to all. It directs the Evensong services, Kappa Phi Christian Women’s Service organization, Delta Alpha Chi Christian Men’s Service fraternity, and Wednesday at the Wesley free lunch.

Oklahoma City University intramural and recreational sports promotes a healthy lifestyle for the campus community.

Student Organizations Boasting more than 80 student organizations, OKCU has a student group for everyone. If your ideal student organization does not exist, creating a new organization is an easy process. Located in the lower level of the Tom and Brenda McDaniel University Center, the Involved Center exists to help students get involved and stay involved. Involved workers routinely help students learn how to start a new organization, reserve space, fill out financial documents, navigate OrgSync, and recruit members for an organization. OKCU’s student organizations are a great representation of the diversity, intelligence, and leadership abilities of OKCU students.
