Welcome to the OU Task Force, a "sub-wikiproject" operating "injunction" with Wikiproject Oklahoma, designed to help improve Wikipedia's coverage of the University of Oklahoma. Editors who are interested in expanding knowledge of the University of Oklahoma on Wikipedia may wish to consider themselves part of Task-force OU as well as WikiProject Oklahoma. Please feel free to get involved and post any ideas and suggestions on the talk page, as well as expand sections below. Everyone is welcome to contribute to any article.

Scope and goals[edit]

This project covers the creation and editing of articles related to the University of Oklahoma. It aims to expand Wikipedia's resources on the University of Oklahoma in a fair and accurate manner. This project is here to fix that. Everyone is welcome to help out. In fact, there's more than enough work to go around. You can help us out in the following ways:

  1. ColemanJ (talk · contribs · count); still here
  2. Desert sapper (talk · contribs · count); Not an OU grad, but a big OU football fan of about 25 years (since my first game); definitely will work football and dabble in other sports related stuff.
  3. imaswfan (talk · contribs · count); Class of 2002
  4. Joetcrocker (talk · contribs · count); Class of 2006, I gave campus tours in the past, haven't missed a home game since Van Horn was president
  5. KrakatoaKatie (talk · contribs · count) 18 hours short of my Bachelor of Accountancy degree, and my husband is a December 1985 grad. (I'm an RN, too - I still don't know what I want to do when I grow up.) I prefer to focus on the campus instead of sports; I wrote most of the stadium article (hint: I've spent a lot of time on that field) and I'll begin one on the student union very soon done. Excuse me now while I go grab a cane to keep up with you youngsters. :-)
  6. Nmajdan (talk · contribs · count); Class of 2005; will work in all areas.
