Dedicated in September 2014, OU’s Elliott Tower rises 151 feet above campus as a welcoming beacon visible for miles. The 49-bell carillon tower, surrounded by a fountain and gardens, is made possible by a generous donation from longtime OU supporters Hugh and Nancy Elliott. Mrs. Elliott describes the tower as “a symbol of unity for people of all walks of life to come together.”
