Blood Drive a Great Success!
On Thursday, December 1, 2016, Randall University hosted its fall semester OBI blood drive in the Barber Center lobby. Numerous students, faculty, and staff members participated in the event. According to a statement from OBI, the drive was a great success! An OBI representative wrote in a letter to the university:
"It is vital to have strong community partners, such as Randall University, that see value in dedicating time to organizing blood drives and encouraging donations. Please extend our sincere thanks to Denny Kuhn for working with our team to prepare and recruit 37 people willing to give blood. Of those, 34 were able to donate and save lives of patients across Oklahoma."
For years, Randall University has gladly partnered with OBI to afford members of the university family the opportunity to participate in this act of charity for people in need. Scripture teaches that “For the life of every creature is its blood: its blood is its life” (Lev 17:14). The donating of blood literally gives what is life-saving for many who have suffered blood-loss due to illness, tragic accident, and major surgery. This is just one of many ways that Randall University does good for the community at large, seeking to fulfill Jesus’ teaching to “let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven” (Matthew 5:16).

Saints "Dream Big" for Autism Awareness
On December 2, Randall's men's and women's basketball teams hosted Ozark Christian for back-to-back match-ups. But this evening was about so much more than basketball. During the men's game, both Randall and Ozark teamed up with the Kids and Dreams Foundation, which raises awareness and support for those with autism and children who are experiencing bullying. The evening was well-chronicled in an article by Adam Troxtell in the Norman Transcript, which we encourage you to read.
