In addition to their family ties to OU, Lauren and Katie grew up a couple of blocks from the OU campus, attending McKinley Elementary, Alcott Middle School and Norman High School.
“I remember thinking when I was little that I couldn’t wait to grow up and go to college at OU. There was never any question I would go anywhere else,” Katie said.
These soon-to-be OU graduates said they are proud to carry on the family tradition.
“OU has always been a huge part of our family’s lives,” Lauren said. “It really means a lot to us that we get to graduate from the same university that our grandparents and parents have received degrees from.
“It is very special to us that we are the third generation in our family to graduate from OU, and we hope that one day our children will be the fourth.”
