For the OU Cousins organization at OU, we started off the semester with a matching party to find our “cousins”. We started off with a sort of speed-dating ice breaker. It was nice to get to know people. I actually met some people that I had class with or lived in my tower, so it was nice branch out and meet OU students from across the globe. The two people I got closest too were Deja and Mark. Deja is from Denmark and is a Junior at OU. She is hilarious and we bonded over eating way too much pizza and consistently losing at bingo. Afterwards, we added each other on Facebook and Instagram and even though she has retuned home, we continue to keep in touch through social media. Mark was actually in my Spanish class but we never talked until the Matching Party. I’m glad we did, because we actually worked together on a lot of projects in class and ended up giving our final presentation together. I think it’s amazing that OU Cousins helps to create a sense of community for international students and allows anyone to be a part of that. I highly suggest joining OU Cousins if you want to meet more people, or just learn more about the students going to OU.
