NORMAN – For the 129 student-athletes graduating this weekend, it may be their last time together, but they know they will forever be a part of the Sooner family.
OU's student-athletes gathered for the annual Max Weitzenhoffer Student-Athlete Graduation Reception Friday before attending commencement and their individual college convocations.
"We did this together," said soccer's Liz Keester when talking about her fellow student-athlete graduates. "We're a family here at OU, and it's such a cool place to be."
Of Oklahoma's 129 graduates, 119 received undergraduate degrees, three earned professional degrees and seven completed their master's.
Congratulations once again to all our graduates and Boomer Sooner!

Made the best decision of my life four years committing to OU. Thanks to that decision, I can finally say that me and my brothers are officially college graduates. But it's not over yet. Still more to come 🤫 #FST pic.twitter.com/wmzxsSQq5q— Jonathan Alvarez (@JonAlvarez68) May 12, 2018
