Well, this is a bit short notice—I actually just found out about these two speakers yesterday, and one of them is going to be here on Wednesday! That’s a bit late to make any special plans, but if you’re already in Oklahoma City and have the evening of October 1 free, you can attend a lecture by Wangari Maathai.

Last year around this time, I told you all about several great Oklahoma City Halloween events, namely Fright Fest, Haunt the Zoo, and Bricktown’s Haunted Warehouse. Well, this year I have another one to share with you—the Myriad Garden’s Creepy Conservatory. This annual event turns the lush floral landscape of the Myriad Garden’s Crystal Bridge and its surroundings into a fright-filled world of ghosts, ghouls, and goblins.
There are a variety of different events at the Creepy Conservatory, including games, hands-on activities, and more. Some activities are designed to be scary, but there are many that are for younger children as well. Costumes are, of course, welcomed, and many different prizes and candy will be handed out.
The fourth and final college in Oklahoma City is Oklahoma State University’s Oklahoma City branch. OSU-OKC, as it’s known, is a community college that mainly offers two-year associate degrees, although it does offer a bachelor of technology. Most degrees are set up to allow students to then transfer to the main Oklahoma State University campus in Stillwater to finish their bachelor’s degree. However, the degrees are full associate programs, and there’s no need to attend any other courses after completing your degree program.
Just a quick reminder for all of you art fans who will be coming through Oklahoma City before October 12—the special Roman art exhibit from the Louvre is still at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art! I recently saw the exhibit for the second time, and I have to say, it was just as amazing. The statue of Nero, the relief featuring the griffins, and the statue of Polyhymnia were just a few of my favorite pieces. In addition to seeing the Roman art, you can also check out the museum’s permanent Chihuly glass exhibit and other modern art and statues. Admission is only $12 for adults, and it’s well worth the price. Be sure to see this amazing exhibit, and if you have, go see it again.
