Participation in campus organizations can be an important part of your academic learning experience, adding to the power of your resume in the job market. The University of Oklahoma sponsors a variety of events, activities, and more than 200 student organizations covering a wide range of interests. A listing of student organizations is provided here and also in the Student Handbook, which can be obtained in the Student Affairs Office.

Student Life has designed many programs, activities, and services (including study skill workshops) to meet the special needs of minorities, women returning to school, veterans, disabled, transfer, and returning students. Notices about these programs may be obtained from their office and are posted regularly in The Oklahoma Daily.

The program pairs students with similar interests who can meet to discuss graduate school, anthropology, field schools, and/or opportunities to help with research. Undergraduate students who are interested in this program can apply using this online form.

The Oklahoma Anthropological Society is an organization consisting of professionals, students, and laypersons interested in anthropology, with an emphasis on archaeology. They sponsor an archaeological survey and excavation each year and provide seminars and training programs.

The Oklahoma Archeological Survey is located on the Norman Campus and is the state agency that administers and oversees the cultural resources of Oklahoma. Because they are affiliated with the university, they often employ undergraduate and graduate students in various job positions. They also often accept volunteers.
