  6. Once your permanent accommodation is decided, you can apply for a telephone connection and change electricity and heating to your name (from the name of the previous guy/girl who stayed in the apartment)

  7. Recognizing the different cultural backgrounds of international students, the international student services will organize many orientations during the first few weeks of Fall semester (starting in August). You should check out their orientation schedule, and attend the events (they also conduct trips to the supermarket and picnics) that interest you. This is a good way to learn about life in Norman and make new friends.
