Cameron University was founded in 1908 and named after Rev. E. D. Cameron, a Baptist minister and Oklahoma's first State Superintendent of Schools, a year after Oklahoma became a state. What was initially only a junior college was later known as the "University of Choice" serving a diverse student body. Cameron University was known for offering more than 50 degrees through two-year, four-year and graduate programs.
