Dear Faculty and Staff,
The Distinguished Alumni event is this Friday evening 5-7 at the Baker Center. You may have noticed that things are different this year. It promises to be far more entertaining (and shorter) than in previous years. Please join the festivities starting in the Baker Center 2nd floor with a reception 5-6 and the main event from 6-7:30. Among several entertainment sections, four cast members of Lysistrata will do a 4 minute cutting from our production.
As a reminder, our Distinguished Alum this year is Joel Ruark, who has had quite a career since he left OU. The short version of his bio is below.
I hope to see you all on Friday!
