It is my prediction. Time will tell.
I am encouraged whenever I see pushback...especially economic pushback. "Get woke, go broke"
Private donations matter a lot to universities. Alumni donate because they found their experience there very worthwhile and assume today's students will experience the same benefit. Legislatures fund public universities for similar reasons. Destroy the basis for people wanting to provide funds and you cut off the universities lifeblood.
I hope your optimistic vision comes true; some days I feel the same and some days I feel pretty hopeless.
The mindless OU school loyalty, especially around football, runs deep, and I think any change will come very slowly if at all.
Texas is not a liberal state. Send her to the University of Texas !Seen this brought up in several places in the last couple days. Older OU alumni comment "how sad I can't believe it's like that", younger OU alumni comment "oh it's been like this for several years".
I won't even vacation in a liberal state or buy parts from vendors in liberal states. Pretty sure my daughter is going to need a backup plan to OU because I'm not writing any checks to that place. It is that way to an extent at OSU but not nearly to the extent as OU, confirmed by friends who've attended both in recent years.
