Norman, Oklahoma

Norman is a city in the U.S. state of Oklahoma located 20 miles (32 km) south of downtown Oklahoma City. Norman was settled during the Land Run of 1889, which opened the former Unassigned Lands of Indian Territory to American pioneer settlement. The city was named in honor of Abner Norman, the area’s initial land surveyor, and was formally incorporated on May 13, 1891. Economically the city has prominent higher education and related research industries, as it is home to the University of Oklahoma, the largest university in the state, with nearly 32,000 students enrolled. The university is well known for its sporting events by teams under the banner of the nickname “Sooners”, with over 85,000 people routinely attending football games. The university is home to several museums, including the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art, which contains the largest collection of French Impressionist art ever given to an American university, as well as the Sam Noble Oklahoma Museum of Natural History.

what chapter members are saying

Being a part of the exec team and community of the Beta Xi chapter was a great experience. I am grateful for the opportunity to give back to the university community alongside my fellow ECE students. The experience of running review sessions for undergraduates also helped ensure I retained and truly understood the material from previous courses I'd taken.

Joining IEEE-HKN has given me an opportunity to meaningfully give back to my school while being a part of a prestigious network of high-achieving engineers.
