The Union Programming Board (UPB) is having to find new ways to bring students into their events hosted on the weekends due to competing with Friday night events hosted by Sorority houses and fraternity houses and Saturday football games.
With the amount of new students coming into the University, many don’t know about the events that the UBP puts on. However, the student turnout appears to remain at a good level. As the UPB puts on more and more events, they expect the student turnout to improve.

“Numbers have changed and that’s just time, not crazy significantly, but I also think the audience has changed.” The President of the UPB, Stephen Pangestu said. “The stuff that draws me in and called to me when I was a freshman is very different than what the freshmen now want. It’s something we’re actively looking at. Times are changing, what do we have to do to change with them?”

According to the University of Oklahoma’s data, OU had 28,089 students enroll this semester at the Norman Campus. With majority of that being freshmen and seniors, this means that there are plenty more students that the UPB could bring in.

As the UPB tries to figure out ways to increase their student turnout, students have given ideas in order to bring more students in by creating promotional videos and even doing shorter events before football games on Saturdays in order to gain more student participation. The UPB also has plans to raise their turnout rate and try to gain more student participation.
