Oklahoma City has two four year universities. I’ve already discussed one, Oklahoma City University. Now I’ll talk a bit about the other—Oklahoma Christian University. Yes, both can be abbreviated to OCU, and sometimes, people do confuse the two. Oklahoma Christian generally goes by OC, while Oklahoma City University uses OCU or OKCU. That helps keep the confusion to a minimum.

I’ll admit I’m a bit biased when it comes to the next Oklahoma City college on my list. Oklahoma City University, or OCU, is my alma mater. I felt so at home at OCU that I stayed for two MLA degrees after I finished my undergrad work, and I don’t regret a minute of it, despite the fact that my student loans are more than half my home mortgage. OCU is a great university, but it’s also a private one, and you’ll pay out the nose for it.

There are a number of different colleges and universities in Oklahoma, but there are only a few in Oklahoma City itself. I know many high school students or adults looking to go back to school may be interested in knowing more about Oklahoma City colleges, so I thought I’d write a short post about each one. For this entry, I’m going to focus on Oklahoma City Community College, or O-Triple-C, as it’s commonly called.

For the past year, I’ve gone past the Lee’s Sandwiches site on Classen and wondered when, if ever, the store would be finished. Well, this past summer, the restaurant finally opened. I’ve eaten at Lee’s Sandwiches a few times, and I have to say, it’s quite an interesting place.
Lee’s Sandwiches serves a large variety of things. The menu includes a mixture of Asian and European sandwiches, coffee, ice cream, and a number of other things. You’ll find standard sandwiches like ham and cheese, roast beef, and turkey club on the European section. If you’re looking for something a bit more exotic, you may want to try the jambon and pork roll, the Asian veggie sandwich, or Lee’s combination.
If you love to get an early start on buying your Christmas gifts or decorations, well, get ready to shop. I was in a Hobby Lobby on July 31, and what wondrous sight did appear? Oh yes, it was the sight of St. Nicholas and signs of holiday cheer. Bad rhyming aside, there really were about a dozen aisles of Christmas decorations set up a full five months before the holiday! Christmas decorations in July?! Why? I think it’s at least three months too early!
Lately, I’ve noticed something different about some of the parks in Oklahoma City. Some of them have taken out some equipment (or added a new area) that’s full of tall pipes and such. At first glance, I had no idea what this was all about. Then I saw some kids pull on handles and press buttons. Suddenly, the whole area looks like a rain storm—all those pipes turned out to have water sprinklers inside them.
