Good morning,

On Friday, the Patton College of Education celebrated the reopening of a renovated McCracken Hall the exact way you’d hope: By showing off a cheese sculpture shaped like the building.

Yes, really. See the Tweet below:

McCracken’s renovations have been underway since May 2015 and cost nearly $33 million.

David Parkhill, president of the OU College Republicans, wasn’t so happy to see a cheese sculpture was present at the ribbon cutting ceremony.

It’s true. A little more than a week ago, OU’s Board of Trustees voted to raise the class of 2021’s tuition by $388.
