About Us

WHAT IS OU SCAN?

OU SCAN is an independent student-run organization at the University of Oklahoma that was established in 1961. The purpose of this organization is to provide educational, professional, social, and service opportunities for University of Oklahoma students interested in meteorology. It is also meant to provide community awareness regarding weather. Monthly meetings are held during the semester on the second Tuesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. in NWC 1313. At these meetings students will hear from a speaker from the meteorological community, as well as go over details for upcoming events, whether they be social or service events.
