The OU Club of Colorado is a large and active group located in the Denver, CO metro area, where we serve to connect the local alumni, friends and fans of the University of Oklahoma throughout Denver, the Front Range, and the Rocky Mountain Region to the University they love and to each other. We also try to bring a little bit of that Sooner Spirit and Sooner Magic back to the Front Range.
The mission of the OU Club of Colorado is to provide fellowship for alumni and friends of OU, and to promote the University to prospective students from the state of Colorado and the region. The OU Club of Colorado provides several partial scholarships each year to graduating seniors from the state of Colorado and Wyoming. The money we raise from membership sales, t-shirt sales, sponsorship, and donations go directly to providing scholarships for local Colorado students attending the University of Oklahoma. We gave out approximately $10,000 in scholarships each of the last 3 years!
The OU Club of Colorado is keeping the Sooner Spirit strong in the Rocky Mountains and we have the largest OU football game watch parties in the nation averaging almost 500 fans a game and we’ve had over 850 once at our watch party location at Stoney’s Bar and Grill, located at 1111 Lincoln, in Denver, CO
We have been on Mile High Sports Radio, and Fox 31 TV promoting OU and the University of Oklahoma in the Denver region.
