OU Moment

GRRR! The bear arrives on campus and hundreds of student-athletes joined faculty and staff to welcome him to his home near the Athletics Center on September 6. OU students began the hunt for a Grizzly bear mascot five years ago. They found it in “The Grizz,” a bronze sculpture that weighs in at nearly a ton and stands eight feet tall. The statue was created by world renowned sculptors Istva’n Ma’te and Gyorgyi Lantos, parents of former OU swimmer Hunor Ma’te. The university, students and OU Student Congress raised more than $35,000 to bring the sculpture to campus. The event also marked the opening of the Grizzly Center, for graduates and champions, which offers academic counseling, individual and group tutoring, study sessions, a computer lab and reading area.
