The Stringman Spins Tales at Cameron for Area Students

Cameron was the place to be to watch David "Stringman" Titus spin his tales along with 1,000 area students in March. The third graders received strings so that they could spin along with the Stringman, and all of this was courtesy of the Lawton Area Reading Council and the hard work of Cameron's own Dr. Lynda Robinson.

Department of Education Explores Sustainability for Cameron's 2014-2015 Academic Festival

Little Free Libraries

“Take a book, leave a book, or both.” That’s the message of Cameron University’s four new Little Free Libraries, each of which will be filled with free books for community members to take and exchange later for additional books. Each of Cameron’s Little Free Libraries, which look like birdhouses, is situated on the Cameron campus along the Aggie Mile and will be sustained by students in Cameron’s Department of Education. Dr. Stephanie White was instrumental in the creation of Cameron's Little Free Libraries.
