All that Glitters

This fall, University of Oklahoma President Joe Harroz welcomed the largest freshman class in the school’s 132-year history, more than a quarter who are first-generation college students. Harroz himself is a second-generation OU grad, following his father who graduated from OU’s medical school and was the first in his family to attend college. And now, his son has joined him at OU as well as a student, making the third generation to call OU home. Harroz has plenty of mementos of his family throughout his office, historic items dating back to OU’s very first president and one extremely glitzy present from OU Athletic Director Joe Castiglione.
