A note about our University and our CookbookSome call it a college for everyone. Others say it is a bonafide party school. But all agree that the University of Okoboji's major curriculum is fun! Okoboji is an attitude. The main attraction of the area has been and always will be the beautiful string of lakes. There are many lakes in the Midwest, but none so special as our Iowa Great Lakes Region. Due to Okoboji's central location and the varied courses offered at the University, the area has long been a magnet for people from throughout the Midwest who wish to enjoy "lake living" and the advantages of a unique curriculum from a renowned institution.The "university" concept has existed since 1971, although residentsand visitors have been enjoying the Iowa Great Lakes Region for decades.U of O's official seal is dated 1878, but that is because its founders didn'tthink they could wait for more than a couple of years before a centennialcelebration!Recently U of O gained national prominence. Besides dozens of articlesby Iowa newspapers and broadcast stations, the U has been featured inthe Wall Street Journal and on NBC Television.All is not jest at the university.
