As President of the Black Alumni Society I would like to invite you to join our outstanding group of University of Oklahoma alumni and friends that live here in the Greater Houston area. As an organization our main goal is to connect the more than 400 African American alumni living in the Greater Houston area, as well as the thousands of alumni from Houston, in order to represent, strengthen our presence, our voice, and our ability to be a helping hand to the University of Oklahoma in the Houston area.
As a member of OUBAS-Houston your membership dues go towards a number of activities that strengthen our foundation as a group, our ability to help prospective students, and also allow us to network and have some fun. Here are ideas of some of the events we look forward to doing this year are:
- Bowling Tournament Fundraiser
- OU Alumni Author Book Signing
- OUBAS-Houston Scholarship Program Donation
- Football Watch Parties for all games
- Quarterly Happy Hour Networking Mixers
- Alumni and Friends Holiday Party
- Aiding in Fall Recruiting at area High Schools
Your annual membership fee of $35 is tax deductible. We also accept additional donations that go directly to our scholarship fund for graduating high school seniors who will attend OU. Our goal is to double our scholarship donations to prospective students and eventually make our scholarship one that can aid prospective students or current students from Houston who may need additional financial help.
Your donation of your funds or your time will not only help us achieve our goals, but will also allow you to connect to alumni and strengthen your connection to the University of Oklahoma and their alumni activities. You can join the email list by sending an email with your contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org. Also join our Facebook page as “Oubas Houston”. We look forward to your participation.
