Northwestern returns to regular hours; new student orientation sessions scheduled

Northwestern Oklahoma State University will return to regular hours beginning Monday, Aug. 3.

The Alva and Woodward campuses will be open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday. The Enid campus will be open 8 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday.

Each summer the university opts for extended daily hours Monday through Thursday so that employees have Fridays off.

Students are encouraged to enroll before the fall semester begins. Printed copies of the course schedule are available at all of Northwestern’s locations, and a PDF version of the booklet is located on Northwestern’s website at A drop-down list of updated courses showing possible cancellations and closed classes also is available on this web page.

Incoming freshmen and transfer students will be on the Alva campus for required orientation sessions on Saturday, Aug. 15. Freshmen will meet in Herod Hall Auditorium starting at 8 a.m. for registration. A program for the students will begin at 8:30 a.m. Before the students are released for lunch, the traditional freshman class photo will be taken.

Alva transfer students will meet from 1 to 3 p.m. in room 109 of the Education Building. Woodward transfer students will meet on Thursday, Aug. 13, from noon to 1 p.m. in the Phillips Conference Room. Enid transfer students will meet the same day and time in the Enid Commons Area.
