Take in a Sooner football game in a rowdy stadium packed with 80,000 or so of your new best friends, or cheer the OU basketball team on to victory.

Uncover 4 billion years of natural history at the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History, the nation's largest university-based museum, where towering dinosaur giants amaze visitors.

Go on your own pub crawling adventure as you become part of the lively nightlife scene of Campus Corner where live music filters out of bars and dance music fills trendy nightclubs.

Norman is big enough to offer every lodging choice you could wish for, but friendly enough to make you feel at home where ever you stay.
