FAQ | The Sooner Standard

What counts as volunteer hours?  OU values and encourages others to give back to the community. Acts of service done freely outside of academic requirements or work counts towards the Sooner Standard.

Can I add my hours from previous years? Yes! Since The Soooner Standard is a new program, OUHSC students can retroactively log hours that they have completed throughout their time enrolled at OUHSC.

How do I log my hours? Go to http://studentvoice.com/uoo/soonerstandard to log your hours. You will fill this out each time you enter a new volunteer event.

How do I keep track of my hours? HSC Student Affairs will contact you at the end of every month with your updated log and total amount of hours.

What if I am graduating at a different time than listed above? No problem. Contact sarah-bamlett@ouhsc.edu and communicate your graduation date.

Do summer camps/mission trips count? Yes! Please only count the hours you were actively volunteering.

Do summers and break count? Yes!

 

Adopt-a-Patient: Winter Wishes and Adopt-a-Patient: Summer Smiles

HSC Student Affairs has teamed up with the OU Children's Hospital and the OU Medical Center to help patients feel "at home" throughout the year.  Many families come to the hospital in emergency situations with little time to pack. The Adopt-a-Patient programs helps to ensure patients have what they need during their time in the hospitals.  Volunteer your time and effort to help collect items as we comfort those in need. For more information, call HSC Student Affairs or email students@ouhsc.edu.  

 

Adopt-A-Patient: Summer Smiles 

                                                    

HSC Student Affairs has teamed up with both the Children’s Hospital and the OU Medical Center to help the patients feel more “at home” in the hospital. We are gathering new pajamas, blankets, toys and other simple comforts that can help.   Many families come to the hospital in emergency situations, with little time to pack items. Additionally, over 70% of families served are considered “low-income” and could use a helping hand. Please contact HSC Student Affairs at (405) 271-2416 for any questions.

* We appreciate your support, and please know that all donated items or funds to The Children's Hospital Volunteers are tax deductible, as it is a registered 501(c) (3) charity.

Please contact Zelina Estrada: Zelina-Estrada@ouhsc.edu or 405-271-2416 for additional questions.
