The Sooner Housing Center provides a small, family-like environment. The SHC is a wonderful place to hang out, make friends, relax or meet your significant other for life.
The SHC boasts five spacious student lounges designed to maximize each student's fun. We have a game room that includes pool tables, ping pong tables, air hockey, foosball and playstation games.
We have computers that can be used to Facebook your friends, check out the scores on SoonerSports.com, listen to the lastest music, check out the newest videos -- or write a paper for class.
We have numerous TV's in our lounges set up with cable, and we especially like to boast about our 65" TV. The 65-incher seems to be stuck on ESPN HD, MTV Jams or BET a lot, but sometimes we watch movies on HBO, Cinemax or Showtime.
The girls always have Grey's Anatomy watch parties and there usually is a crowd for Desperate Housewives and the OC. Whatever we are watching, there's always a crowd.
The staff in the Sooner Housing Center is always on the lookout for fun things to do. Most days the staff creates some type of program for the students to do.
It could be anything from rock climbing, horseback riding, flag football, ice skating, bowling, paintball to more crafty things like knitting scarfs, decorating t-shirts, decorating room doors, decorating picture frames to movie nights, ping-pong tournaments, board game night and many more fun things.
The purpose is to create opportunities to meet people, relax, blow off stress and enjoy yourself.
We also have a faculty member who lives in the Sooner Housing Center. Dr. Allen Knehans and his wife Jean are our Faculty-In-Residence.
This program gives residents the opportunity to hang out with a professor in an non academic environment. Professors are normal people, too! Luckily we have the best FIR we could ask for. They are always opening their doors and inviting students in for fresh-baked cookies. Mrs. K's world famous cookies always hit the spot.
We also celebrate everyone's birthday in the SHC and monthly birthday parties at the K's are filled with cake and ice cream. The K's also have other fun things on a regular basis like pumkin carving at Halloween. The K's attend every sporting event with us and all the big programs the staff put on.
Come meet the K's.
