University of Oklahoma
The University of Oklahoma is open to the people of the Indian Territory as well as to the people of Oklahoma. Tuition is free. Its benefits are intended for the people of the two territories. The young people who attend do not have to support the university; they support themselves only. Living expenses are not high. A good room costs 75 cents per week, good board can be secured for $2 per week…the year is divided into two semesters, one beginning in September, one in February. If any of Caddo’s young people desire to attend a good school this one will cost them the very least money. The Oklahoma Territory supports the school.
