When I first told people that I was coming to OU people smiled and said "Oh man, that's a party school." Or something along those lines. I have also heard that we're the biggest party school and our Halloween is crazy. I have also heard about drug use on campus. Positive stereotypes of OU are that we have GREAT programs.
