    This university has great agriculture and engineering programs, but it is also very diversified. The main thing that it lacks is a medical and law sector; if you are interested in them you should try elsewhere, but most other people will be well accomidated at Oklahoma State.

    Tips for prospective students

    Everyone, no matter where you end up, should spend at least one year in traditional housing. It is such a wonderful experience, and you will not regret it. Also, if you end up at Oklahoma State, do not eat more than once a day at the Taco Mayo; just trust me on this.

    Bang for the buck

    Tuition and living expenses are amazingly affordable for it being such a top notch university.

    Am enjoying being here

    Stillwater is a really friendly place. I am currently in a traditional dorm, and I have to say that it is amazing. It is so easy to make friends and it is quite laid back. Also, we have an amazing fitness center and we are the most spirited campuses I've seen.

    Am learning a lot

    This school has an amazing teaching staff with teacher's assistants in a lot of the classes to help you understand and learn the material. Also, there are free tutoring services taught by current students who have taken the classes you are enrolled in that are included in tuition.

    OSU has something for everyone. There are tons of clubs and organizations to help students make friends and stand out. In addition there are tons of sororities and fraternities, but you don't have to be a member of the Greek community to fit in on campus. International students should feel welcome as well! There is a very large number of exchange students and I haven't heard any horror stories from them. Everyone seems to have a great time at OSU!

    Tips for prospective students

    I decided to come to Oklahoma State University because of the beautiful campus and extremely helpful people that I met here my senior year when I visited. Over the past year I have found that not everyone is as nice as those I first encountered, but for the most part, the people are very helpful, especially those who work in the offices on campus. In addition, OSU is very low in cost considering the reputation behind the name. Not only does it have a very low cost, but the scholarships available and the jobs that you can qualify for on campus are very easy to come by! There's a place for everyone at OSU!

    Engineering Students, Agriculture Students, or HRAD Students. Or just any one in the Big-12 Area whose just wants to have fun.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get involved in something, it keeps you focused. Rather you drink or not, you will probably get carried away with the idea that you are away from your parents for 9 months (like i did), but as long as you make the grades and attend class during the week you'll be fine. Use all the free services Oklahoma State offers you. If you need help in a class, financial aid, depression, sickness, or anything else, there is someone you can go to.

    Bang for the buck

    The Colvin Center is recreation center at Oklahoma State. Its one of the top 10 in the country. It offers a huge gym consisting of free weights and just about every machine you would ever need. It also has i think 4 or 5 basketball courts, an outdoor and indoor swimming pool, running track, virtual golf, a rock climbing wall (a big hit- you can either climb when you want, or take a class), racket ball, table tennis, and more. They also offer free aerobic or martial art classes for any student. Education - for an agriculture major, engineering major, or hotel restaurant and Management major, Oklahoma State is a great college for you to go to. Especially if you live in oklahoma with the instate tuition. Oklahoma State has the lowest instate tuition in the Big 12.

    Am enjoying being here

    Oklahoma State is encompassed by 'The college atmosphere'. On the week days campus is busy, people are everywhere either rushing to class, or just hanging out on the library lawn. The lawn is huge. Alot of people like to go out there and throw a frisbee around, slack line, take a nap in the sun, or just sit and talk amongst friends. During the weekends the parties are great, always something to do it seems like. The hot spot on thursdays is going to the Tumble Weed (a country club) and attached to it is Tremors (a hip-hop club). So rather your a country fan or a hip-hop fan, thats always fun. I hate country and i still go.

    Am learning a lot

    While classes can be big at any University, Oklahoma State is freshman friendly. As a freshman, you're bound to have some classes getting as big as 300 students and as small as 10-25, but despite the large difference, every single one of my professors was easily accessible if i needed help in their class. Either by email, phone number (some proffs give out personal contact numbers in small classes), or going by there office to talk to them one on one. Not only this are college professors easy to stay in contact with at oklahoma state, but part of your tuition covers free tutors for any subject matter. And if your an engineering major like i am, you are guarenteed one-on-one tutors for mathematics, chemistry, biology, physics, and any other science class. Oklahoma State also offers a writing center for proof reading essays, helping you with research projects, correcting mistakes you may have made, or if you're just terrible at writing essays (like i am), they can help you improve in your writing ability. They also help you with writing your resume for a prospective job.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for laid back students but also ones that want to be involved and socially active. If you are a big studier there are tons of nooks to hide out in and study your heart out.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure and get a tour of campus before you decide to go to OSU. It is the one thing I regret not doing. It really influences your housing decsion later on, trust me, I do a LOT of walking. The Freshmen Fifteen is not a myth: I gained it but lost it all again because of all the great fitness classes that are included in the fees. The library is open 24hrs a day during finals week for a reason.. STUDY. Stillwater has two Wal Marts and some shopping like American Eagle and The Buckle. While the town is really spread out, there is stuff to do either on campus or off like the movie theater or the Tumbleweed. The safety on campus is getting better: more lights have been installed in parking lots but the buddy system is the best way to go at night. You can't drive to class but there is a bus system call BOB (big orange bus) and its super handy!

    Bang for the buck

    While room and board is a little bit on the pricey side, OSU is the best buy in the big 12, so says the OkState homepage. Where you live on campus determines how much you pay a month. Meal plan is a great deal for freshmen! However, you do have a minimum of $1000 a semester your first year. Meal plan can be spent at any place that sells food including the markets. With the fees that you pay it includes the gym (which is top notch), all of the computer labs and printers (if you have your own printer great.. but you already pay for the ink in the school ones), lab fees depending on your schedule and upkeep of the sidewalks and reconstruction of the buildings.

    Am enjoying being here

    I love being at OSU! The campus hardly seems crowed, except on game days, and to get from one edge of campus to another takes about 15 minutes if you keep a steady pace, but watch out for the bikes! I have found many friends by going potluck with roomates and joining a service sorority. There are many diverse groups and clubs on campus and they will definitly have one to suit your interests. Dining options are the best: the campus has everything from a bakery to Which Wich and Chick-Fil-A. Even if you live on the edge of campus like I do, there is a place inside the dormitory to eat.

    Am learning a lot

    I learned so much my first semester at Oklahoma State! The professors were very willing to help if asked and they have scheduled office hours which you can go to to review before a test or get help on the homework. The teaching assistants were nice and helpful, hard to understand at times, but very knowledgeable. There are multiple learning centers where students are hired to review essays and paper, check homework, or help with pre-labs or just anything that comes to mind!

    The teaching staff here are great, and if you do need that little extra bit of help there are many many resources for group or individual tutoring or studying help. In addition, there are so many great programs and opportunities for students to get involved academically both on campus and off of it.

    All types of students will find their niche here at Oklahoma State University. From agriculture majors, to fashion design majors, there are plenty of opportunities to expand your social circle and your knowledge about the subject you've come here to study.

    Tips for prospective students

    Tap into all of your resources. OSU offers several student resources for you to utilize in your education throughout the years. Not only are there groups to help you study, such as the tutors in the Math Learning Center and the specialized student mentors in the Student Union, but there are opportunities to talk to students and faculty to find out what the right path is to your future plans. Grab up the daily O'Colly to keep up with the happenings on campus; it's a free newspaper put out by the school, and it serves as a great tool to find scholarship offerings, off-campus housing, and special promotions put on just for college students. There are also several free events put on by students that you can enjoy, and you won't drain your bank account trying to find something to do on a free night from studying.

    Bang for the buck

    Although the cost may seem too outrageous for some students, OSU accommodates to the financial needs of their students. They give out numerous scholarships for all types of students, and work to help find the right option for your finances. You will get your money's worth here at OSU; the courses are phenomenal, and the campus gives plenty of opportunities for you to feel at home. Choosing to come to Oklahoma State University will be one of the most rewarding experiences of your life.

    Am enjoying being here

    OSU is the perfect setting for a fulfilling college experience, and Stillwater acts an amazing backdrop to such an amazing university. Many of the students and faculty are very friendly, and are willing to meet new people. There are numerous on-campus organizations that offer a spot for new students, and since the size of the university reflects the size of the organization, you will feel more than welcome when you first walk into the room. The residence halls also provide outlets for you to meet other students who will ultimately become your new friends that you relate to. The city of Stillwater also contributes to any student's needs, whether you want to enjoy a large group event at Eskimo Joe's or a quiet outing to Aspen coffee. With so many opportunities, no one will ever feel out of place here at Oklahoma State.

    Am learning a lot

    My first year at OSU has been a true learning experience, both inside and outside of the classroom. Courses at OSU provide stimulating opportunities to not only learn about the subject of the class, but to learn about your own strengths and weaknesses as an individual in this amazing student body. There are several members of the staff and, of course, fellow students, who are willing to take time out of their schedules in order to help you learn more about your experience at OSU, such as what courses you should take in the future or where you can find the closest copy machine from any location on campus. No matter what the question is, someone on campus has the answer you're looking for.

    OSU is a good option for any type of student. OSU has the best of both worlds because it is a major university but it has a small town feel to it. There is a diverse group of students here so everybody will have someone to relate with.

    Tips for prospective students

    One tip I would give prospective students would be to visit campus at least once. I ended up visiting OSU two times before I made up my mind. Another tip would be to do your homework and get all the information you need before making and major decisions. For example, research where all the eating places are located and then pick where you want to live accordingly. Finally, invest in a good pair of tennis shoes because unless you are lucky enough to have a car you will be walking everywhere.

    Bang for the buck

    Having to pay out of state tuition can really add up but OSU is a excellent school and it is worth the price tag. All the academic programs that are offered at OSU are successful thanks to the wonderful and committed professors. The price is worth it because without question you will get a quality education. OSU is the best bang for my buck and I am glad I came here for school.

    Am enjoying being here

    Like most teenagers I could not wait to leave my parent's place and live on my own. The campus here in Stillwater is so beautiful and the people here are so kind and inviting. More than anything, I love all the school spirit. OSU student are passionate about their school and are not afraid to show their support. However, there are a few cons about living here like becoming homesick and having to deal with loud and crazy students after big school events. But other than that I really enjoy being here.

    Am learning a lot

    During the fall semester of my freshman year most of my classes where the very basic classes like college algebra, comp 1, biology, and history. However, I did learn quite a lot in these classes. I have just started the spring semester of my freshman year and I am finally getting into my major as an athletic trainer. I had very little knowledge of athletic training before I entered college. I am learning that my major has so many more components to it. In addition, I am learning so much about Oklahoma as a whole.

    Everyone. Unlike other campuses, OSU has an equal amout of Greeks and non-Greeks. If you aren't a Greek, don't worry about fitting in. You will fit in just fine.

    Tips for prospective students

    1. Don't be shy about going up and meeting new people. Everyone I have met thus far has been incredibly nice. 2. STUDY- the sciences here are especially hard but do-able if you put in the effort

    Bang for the buck

    I was honestly surprised about the tuition cost. It was much lower than I had expected. For the education you receive, the price of tuition is very very reasonable.

    Am enjoying being here

    The campus is BEAUTIFUL! All the upperclassmen are very friendly as are the faculty and staff. There is always something to do in Stillwater. Simply hanging out with friends seems to be more fun here. GREAT school!

    Most of the professors are amazing. They really take the time to clearly explain concepts and get to know students. They will make appointments very easily if you have certain questions and based their office hours around most of the student's schedules.

    You can take easy classes and learn nothing if you want but hard, challenging and useful classes are definitely available to those that seek them.

    Spirited, humble, outgoing, people who want to feel like they live in the suburbs, students interested in cultural diversity, AP students, engineers- chemical or mechanical, teachers, undecided, and football fans.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply for as many scholarships as possible. The alumni scholarship doesn't apply if you live out of state. The four room apartments are nice, but for the price, my friends feel they are missing out on dorm life. If you want to feel immersed in campus activities, greek life is the way to go.

    Bang for the buck

    I applied to many of my in state colleges and I ended up going here for the scholarships I did receive that cut out 10,000 out of each year's tuition. The school has very cheap but excellent health services. I got the flu once and walked straight in to the health center, only had to pay 12 bucks and a prescription for ten bucks. I saved more money there than at my personal doctor at home.

    Am enjoying being here

    The football games are incredible. In high school I could care less about sports, NFL, school, and definitely not college. At the campus tour, I told my dad I would never want to go to the games. hether winning or losing, the school has cheers that rock the stadium. Everyone decks out in orange and on game days the bell tower plays the alma mater every hour. When it gets close to Christmas, the bell tower plays Christmas music, and the cultural day, where all of the international students cook the foods from their countries, is phenomenal. The greek life has fun activites to go to weekly, whether free dinners at the houses, dance offs, homecoming pomping, fashion shows, movie nights, or philanthropic events.

    Am learning a lot

    I certainly succeeded in school. In the science classes, because I took AP classes in high school, the classes seemed right at home to me. The library is open 24/7 during finals week, and students can use the many computers or study rooms daily. I definitely feel smarter and have learned more about health professions and politics than I would normally.

    I would not say that OSU is right for everyone, but if it does fit you than you're going to love it. OSU has a small town feel because it's set in the middle of Stillwater, so you must be OK with only having 2 Walmart's in your town and NO Targets.... for those of you that can't live without Target, OSU should not be your first pick. An outgoing and fun personality is not required, but if you don't come with one I'm almost guaranteed that you'll leave with it!

    Tips for prospective students

    The first thing is to get involved! Find organizations on campus that fit your interest and show up even if you do not know anyone else going- plus there is normally free food at the first couple meetings :) Next, be friendly and on the first day when everyone is awkwardly sitting there not talking to each other before classes start, reach out to the person next to you and say hi and introduce yourself. This allows you to know people's names, and make a good impression on others.

    Bang for the buck

    If paying out of state touition, it can quickly get pretty expensive, but it is 100% worth it. Everything that your money goes to is of high quality and it makes living at OSU that much better.

    Am enjoying being here

    I have never been to a place where people are so friendly and really do want you to be there and have a great day. Within the first few months I established a really close group of friends containing not just freshman, but people from all levels of their education that have been able to also help and guide me through my time here at OSU. I love this place and really can't imagine being anywhere else.

    Am learning a lot

    At Oklahoma State University there is such a broad range of classes and topics to choose to study and everywhere you turn you're learning something new. Class sizes are small enough for you to not feel like just another person in a seat, and the professors and teaching assistants really do want to help you learn and succeed in the class.

    Anyone and everyone fit in here at OSU. Campus and the surrounding community of Stillwater provide the perfect balance of city and nightlife with a small town atmosphere that will make any prospective student feel right at home.

    Tips for prospective students

    My #1 tip for a prospective student? Visit campus and make sure to attend a football game...that is when you will really feel the Cowboy spirit! Also, check out the Colvin Center, the University's 4 story workout facility. During your visit, stop and talk to some current students, we love to share about Oklahoma State.

    I LOVE living here at Oklahoma State! Everyone is so kind and willing to lend a helping hand or give you directions if you get a little lost at OSU's gorgeous Georgian-style campus. There are constantly activities, plays, and recitals for students to attend. Don't forget about football games either; and Oklahoma State has the largest Homecoming in the nation!

    Oklahoma State has a perfect mixture of every type of student, and is an ideal place to go if your looking for a school that has great academics and a fun community. I highly recommend this school for anyone. This is an excellent school and any type of student can enjoy it here if they make the effort. Just bring your school spirit! GO POKES!!(:

    Tips for prospective students

    The main thing I encourage is attending EVERY class, no matter if your on your sick bed. Making sure that your professor knows who you are as a person, and knows that your serious about school can help alot when your struggling. Becoming actively involved on campus is another big thing too, if you stay in your room all year then your not really getting the full college experience. Schedule your time wisely, make sure you keep a planner and make time for studying, and leisure. Lastly, make sure you surround yourself with the right people. The friends you choose will have a big part in keeping you from what you should be doing, or encouraging you to do the right thing.

    Bang for the buck

    Paying for college can be very expensive, especially in my particular case because I am out of state and have no scholarships or loans, but I believe that it is well worth it for the education, memories, and life long friends I will have. My tuition cost is about $25,000.

    Am enjoying being here

    It took a while for me to be completely comfortable here,but now that I am, I definitely do not plan on leaving anytime soon! Getting involved in different organizations and events on campus can make the time spent here so much better! I enjoy being with everyone I have met here and it is so much fun to just be on campus and talk to all the different people. There is always some interesting thing happening in which gives me something to look forward to everyday!

    Am learning a lot

    The teachers are very helpful, and are willing to spend extra time if needed. Free tutoring is available for every subject, so this helps alot when I don't understand something. Some classes may be challenging, but well worth it in the end. They have excellent professors, that are very in depth in they're studies. Just go to every class and there is no way that you can fail!

    This college is great for any kind of student. You will learn how to adapt to your surroundings and studying habits once you get the hang of it. It will take time, but it is a great university for everyone!

    It is supposedly a requirement for incoming freshmen to live on campus to have the full college experience. Although it was a great experience, it was rather costly. I moved out of the dormitory after my freshmen year because I realized how much more I could save and buying groceries from the market was a lot less expensive as well. I would recommend living off campus if you enjoy your privacy as well saving a couple of bucks. The fees that come with every class that you take build up as well and can be a major part of where your finances will go even if you don't use some of those resources.

    Am enjoying being here

    Stillwater is a relatively small city. I had assumed that it was a lot bigger before I had moved on campus, but I hadn’t known how much smaller it was until the week before school. I would recommend visiting the campus before you decide where you want to go. There are several events that happen occasionally in town or on campus during the school year, but once breaks come around the city is literally dead. Many students either goes back home or are on vacation, but if you find something to enjoy on your own you’ll feel occupied.

    Am learning a lot

    The courses offered here at Oklahoma State University ranges from a myriad of subjects. If you are interested to learn about something new, I wouldn't doubt that you can find that class to enroll in. The classes that I have been enrolled in are challenging. Although it is challenging, it is a worthwhile experience to learn more about my major and becoming an interactive student on campus. The professors will take time to make sure that you are getting the most out of your education and strive to challenge you as a student. I am thankful to have professors that have guided me with my major and genuinely care about my education and future.

    I am a current sophomore at Oklahoma State University and so far, just about every professor that I have had has hand hands-on experiences in the field that they instruct. It's great to know that that I am being taught by those who actually have credibility in what they are teaching.

    This school is awesome. The staff is great and willing to work with you on things and the campus is beautiful. I had high hopes for the school when I decided to attend after graduating high school and I was not let down in the least.

    What to do for fun

    I get a group of friends together and we take a break from the stress of studying and go to the Colvin Rec. Center, which is on campus and available to all students living on campus. They have pretty much every piece of equipment you can imagine to work out on as well as classes in dance, zumba(one of my favorites) and tons of others.

    Food and Dining

    The food here is by no means home cooking BUT it is very good and is served in a timely manner, allowing you to get to where you need to be. They offer a ton of nutritional foods and when shopping for nutritious food the make it easy with orange stickers on the healthy choices,which are plentiful.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are a lot of fun! I live in community and it is a great experience. I have met a ton of people and have had the opportunity to be the president of the floor. The experience with many people improves your people skills and allows you to work on leadership skills.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not hesitate to get help when you need it! The staff loves to help you out and they truly want to see you succeed. The Writing Center and The MLRC (Math Help Lab) are amazing and have helped me do great on assignments.

    In three sentences

    Oklahoma State University is an amazing place to live. The second I stepped on campus the current students and the staff made me feel like I was at home. The faculty is always friendly and willing to work with you, allowing you to have a successful college experience.

    Campus Safety

    osu pd are quick to respond to any problems.

    Clubs and Activities

    i met my best friends through a student organization.

    Great for these types of students

    great for students who are looking for a more rural, small-town experience (at least, as rural and small town as you can get for a major 4 year university).

    What to do for fun

    stillwater is on the smaller side for a college town but we do have some shopping, a theater, a lake with a walking track, etc. osu sporting events are also a popular pastime.

    Food and Dining

    there are a lot of great options for dining on and near campus.

    Dorm Life

    i didn't live in the dorms, but friends who have seem to think dorm life is about what you would expect.

    Academic Rigor

    osu's academic rigor is about on par with other public universities, and varies some from program to program. for example, we have a very tough engineering program, while social sciences degrees may not be as hard to work on.

    Tips for prospective students

    work hard in high school to maintain a good gpa and to do well on the act. if you are accepted, make the most of summer orientation and other information and services provided by the university. getting involved in a student organization your first semester will add a lot to your experience as well!

    In three sentences

    oklahoma state provides a great, affordable education. campus is under constant construction right now, which can be frustrating, but it's nice that they are continually working to improve things. the community of stillwater is great as well and contributes to a wonderful overall experience!

    OSU is great for everyone! but like I said before, you want to look at your major, and make sure OSU will be able to fulfill the needs of your future career. I do know Oklahoma State has an excellent Ag college, engineering college, pre vet, and many more! you should definitely look into it!

    Tips for prospective students

    My advice would be to keep your mind open! Don't go to a school simply because all your friends are going there. You'll find that college will introduce you to a lot of new people any of which could end up being your new best friend! When picking your college, look at what it is you want to do with your life, if I wanted to be an actress I wouldn't go to Oklahoma State, it just wouldn't make sense. Remember college is firstly about your education, so make sure when you finally pick a university it's one that will help you fulfill your career goals. I also want to suggest to try living in a living learning community, or going greek. When you live with people who are similar to you, you are more likely to enjoy your college experience. I lived in a living learning community and it was so nice to already know people in my classes because they were just down the hall from me! It also makes studying for tests so much easier! (And unlike high school, you will need to study) Also, leave all the high school drama behind, college is the time for you to grow up and realize life isn't just about you, but it is about finding yourself! So always remember to have fun! :D

    Bang for the buck

    OSU's experience is definitely worth the tuition. I do wish it was cheaper, just because like anyone else would say, paying for one's education is not fun. Also I'm not thrilled with the amount of scholarships given out by the university, but I have learned that the colleges within the university are more likely to give you scholarships. So if you're worried about not getting any money from the university, remember that your college still has money to give. I've received scholarships when there was less than a month less of classes! So they really are trying to help!

    Am enjoying being here

    I've made so many new friends since I started going to OSU. I absolutely love it! Everyone is so nice and friendly. The town is small so other than a few locals, there are just college students. I love running into classmates around town, the atmosphere is just amazing! And unlike most universities, the dorms are completely 100% livable! Most college students find themselves wanting to move out as soon as possible, but I find myself not wanting to live anywhere else. The dorm atmosphere at OSU is amazing! It really helps you to feel independent and makes it super easy to make friends.

    Am learning a lot

    What I love about about OSU is that class sizes can vary from 15 to 300 people. In the classes necessary for one on one time, you have it, but you also have some classes with lots of friends in it so you can study easily. It's definitely a different experience from high school; the professors actually treat you like an adult, and realize that you don't need to be babied. I feel like I've learned so much since attending classes at OSU. Now most of the teachers are amazing, but there are a few like I'm sure every other school has, that everyone likes to complain about. So don't expect the teachers to be perfect everywhere.

    This school is very much worth the money. It's about the same price of most state schools and of course is more expensive if you're an out of state student. They are very good about giving out scholarships though to help take a little bit off of the price, especially for out of state students.

    Am enjoying being here

    The campus is absolutely gorgeous. You walk around and can't help bu think how lucky you are to be attending such a beautiful school. The people are so nice and friendly too. It is just a great atmosphere to be in and makes the whole college experience even better and more enhanced.

    Am learning a lot

    The professors here are really fantastic. They give good lectures that you are able to take good notes on. Every once in awhile, like in general education classes, you'll get a bad professor. Don't let that discourage you though because the majority of them are great!

    If you are having trouble deciding whether or not you want to go to Oklahoma State University, make sure to tour the campus and talk to an advisor. That was the deciding moment for me as to where I was going to college. Stillwater is a smaller town, but very friendly. OSU is a very fun place to go to school. Take it from me, OSU is a good choice for your education! GO POKES!

    Bang for the buck

    I would not change anything about choosing to go to Oklahoma State University. I have to have loans on top of scholarships, but to me, it is worth every penny, because I get to go to such a great school.

    Am enjoying being here

    Oklahoma State University is a very beautiful campus. It is easy to find your way around and for the most part, people are very friendly and willing to help. My first year at OSU was intimidating, but with the help of staff and new friends they made it an enjoyable experience and it still is.

    Am learning a lot

    Oklahoma State University classes are diverse, and for the most part, they are enjoyable! Most all the classes I have taken have been challenging, but rewarding in the end! Most of the professors and TA's I have met have been extremely helpful and friendly. They are willing to help you succeed!

    OSU is a perfect school for students who want ample opportunities during and after college. The college provides connections to help students find internships and jobs during and after college. OSU is a place for students full of ambition, however, not for those seeking the easy route. The experience will prepare you for the major you choose, but you must be willing to invest time and effort to take advantage of what the school offers.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you find that OSU is the right college for you, make sure to become active in clubs, programs, and college life once you become a student. Sometimes moving away from home can be a difficult transition, but learning to fill your time with things you enjoy and a major you have strong ambitions toward are important elements to success.

    Bang for the buck

    Oklahoma State University is a great school to attend, but is an expensive choice. For me, I felt that for the degree I am earning and the opportunities the school will provide for me, the expenses were a worthy trade off.

    Am enjoying being here

    I truly enjoy the campus and the opportunity to work with the faculty. As a student who decided not to join the Greek system, I am happy to report that there is something for everyone on campus to provide a way to meet other students with similar interests.

    Am learning a lot

    As a first year college student last fall, I had alot to learn about how to be successfull at such a large school. The program that goes along with my chosen major parallels my interests and has provided me with challenging curriculum. I have learned not only a great amount about my major, but about living on my own and creating networks.

    OSU is big on Agriculture and anything that has to do with that type of thing, such as animals or even insects. They aren't to hot on Medical or Law school, they have a few pre- classes but not alot.

    I think that you do get your money's worth. The school has many organizations to be involved in. You meet new people and share great experiences.

    All students. It may be an Engineering and Agricultural college, but the Restaurant and Hotel Management is one of the top in the nation, and even though the Art department is small, my stepsister received a degree in Graphic Design and now works for big companies like AT&T.

    Tips for prospective students

    Ask your tour guide lots of questions, explore classrooms and dorms, ask to see buildings and technology related to your major. OSU has a scale model wind tunnel most people might not know about and tons of computer labs that you will end up using.

    Bang for the buck

    In state schools are excellent! Especially if you can qualify for some sort of tuition waiver or scholarship. I sure think OSU was a much better place to study engineering that Colorado School of Mines, because I get to interact with students of all types of studies and branch out. Also I am getting to do a double major in Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering, something most schools don't do.

    Am enjoying being here

    I really love it! I'm from Stillwater, but living on campus has made me feel like I live in a completely different place. Life on campus goes until midnight or later constantly and everyone just loves life so much! I challenge people from Stillwater to go to Camp Cowboy or some other function that puts you living on campus for a little bit to see what I mean by the campus being a town within a town.

    Am learning a lot

    I am learning a lot, even though professors can be quite drab and boring sometimes. My suggestion would be to make friends in all your classes quickly and don't be afraid to ask questions. Friends are great for keeping you awake in class and doing homework with (especially if they live in your dorm). The best person to ask questions to is always the professor, but if you can't understand him or her, ask everyone you can.

    I think Oklahoma State is great for a variety of students, there are many clubs and organizations to get involved in depending on your interests.

    Tips for prospective students

    I would suggest that you make sure that you are prepared to study. I was an honors student in college, with a great GPA but high school tests did not prepare me for college. Make sure you can pace yourself, and spend two to three hours studying rather than trying to cram.

    Bang for the buck

    I received the out-of-state scholarship, which covers my out of state fee's. It is disappointing that they have raised tuition, but I believe that it is still a great value for the education received. Printing, and other costs are included in tuition which is helpful in reducing extra costs.

    Am enjoying being here

    The people are warm and friendly and everyone is always there to lend a hand, and help with whatever you need. The other students are very open and friendly as well, I have greatly enjoyed being part of the high-class Greek community as well.

    If you plan on coming here you should be prepared to study a lot and be focused on your school work. Some people label OSU as a party school, which for some it is.

    Like I said before, the colvin center, the math lab's, free tutoring, and writing center's are there for you, and you are already paying for them, so DON'T waste it. Use all of the available resources to you, don't be afraid to ask questions, and keep your resiliency strengthened. College can be fun, but you have the choice to make it that way.

    On campus there is a ton of dining, a gym, tutoring, math labs, a writing center, and a student success center. This is all at no extra expense to you! It is all in your fee's. Money is not wasted on classes or anything else because your advisers and professors are so willing to help you that you have to completely not try to be unsuccessful. Oklahoma State also offer's a ton of scholarships to freshman, and after your freshman year, your individual colleges offer scholarships.

    I absolutely recommend living on campus, my best friends here all live in my dorm. Campus life is fun and exciting, and most importantly extremely inviting. There is so much to get involved in! The colvin center is the gym on campus, they have tons of equipment, including a rock climbing wall; Freshman get one semester of free rock climbing!Hall government is very fun, and we have the best homecoming on earth! Even if you think you aren't school spirited or into sports, EVERYONE catches the orange bug. The spirit and pride for Oklahoma State is infectious, and you too will find yourself sing the Alma Mater everyday at noon. Getting involved on campus is proven to improve your academic success, and there is something for everyone!

    Am learning a lot

    All of the classes are very enriching, and as a freshman you are required to take a freshman orientation class to the college within the University, that your major is in. The freshman orientation class is helpful, easy, and genuinely is there to help make you the best student you can be! The class is even taught by your own academic adviser, very helpful for traditional freshman. Other classes understand you are a freshman and the professors, for the most part are willing to help you if you want to help yourself. I enjoy all of my professors.

    Visit the campus. You should always learn about a school and what it can offer before you make your final decision. Sometimes visiting a campus can help you make the final decision.

    The education you receive at Oklahoma State is great. As an out-of-state student my tuition is higher than some. Oklahoma State does a great job with financial aid though. As soon as you apply you are automatically applying for scholarships. You don't have to fill out another application for them which is great. After applying to other schools, I realized that Oklahoma State was the most financially fitting to mine and my families needs. They were able to offer me great scholarships to cut the cost of my tuition in half.

There are also free tutors available who are also very helpful. There is no reason anyone should ever fail a class here.

    Tips for prospective students

    Be prepared for college. It can really be a whole different life. It can catch you by surprise. Do not procrastinate on your homework either do it ahead of time so that you do not have to worry about it. Also, look and read your syllabus it is really important and can really help you out in class because sometimes your teacher's will not tell you that you have homework or that a test is coming up. So be prepared and go to class prepared and sit in the front.

They do not just teach class stuff they also teach you life lessons.

    Tip #1: Rain boots are always helpful when you ahve a test at 5:30 in the afternoon and it is pouring Tip #2: Eat on campus as much as possible, your meal plan only carries over so much. Tip #3: Set aside time everyday for homework and studying. College is not necessarily harder, but definitely time consuming Tip#4: NEVER skip class unless you are seriously ill. The information from class is always helpful on tests. Tip #5: Don't be afraid to ask mom and dad for money. You can't always have all the money you need, but you can't be asking them every week either.

    Yeah it's expensive, but it's worth it. The housing is great, there are plenty of places to use the meal plan, and when you go to class you are going to learn something.

    Am enjoying being here

    I LOVE it here. The people are friendly, the staff is friendly, and there's just a great environment.

    Am learning a lot

    I definitely am learning a lot here. The staff is great and helpful. Tutors to help you learn and plenty of study sessions for those in need.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for students who are comfortable with a large community but smaller class sizes. It is also great for individuals who haven't decided on a major yet.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply for scholarships early and tour the campus, I realized I was meant to go here on my tour.

    Bang for the buck

    The amount of resources available at OSU in absolutely insane. I'm a disabled student and I have received more than enough support from the school.

    Am enjoying being here

    The community here is amazing, I wouldn't trade it for anything.

    Am learning a lot

    I'm a freshman and I've already learned so much both from teachers and other students

    Great for these types of students

    I think that Oklahoma State is a great university for students who can be proactive. It is a very involved and active school. Students need to be able to be motivated and ready to be able to enjoy the university with all its uniqueness.

    Tips for prospective students

    The best advice I can give to prospective students would have to be talk to people and find out as much information about everything that you can. When you go in to a class, talk to your professors and it will help you in the long run. When looking for financial aid, go straight to the source. If you ask the questions they will give you the answers and try to help as much as possible.

    Bang for the buck

    I do feel that Oklahoma State University is a little expensive but I know that the information and the feel experience that I am gaining will more than help me in the future with job opportunities.

    Am enjoying being here

    I am now entering my major courses and I feel so very excited. All of my professors are excited and willing to help you in any way that they can. They would go above and beyond for you if you are willing to try hard at the course you are in.

    Am learning a lot

    I love this university. I feel like even in your general education courses that you still learn fun interesting things. I have not had a course yet that I felt was useless.

    Campus Safety

    The Oklahoma State University Police Department can be frequently seen patrolling the campus and watching out for baddies. This makes me feel safe even when walking at night because I know that the police are only a button push away.

    Clubs and Activities

    Anything you are interested in has a club on campus. If there isn't one, then get some friends together and form your own! The campus life department will walk you through the process with ease.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Oklahoma State University holds the countries largest homecoming celebration. It's definitely worth a trip to Stillwater to check it out.

    Bang for the buck

    Oklahoma State University is definitely worth the buck. All the money you pay seems to go right back into your education and college experience.

    What to do for fun

    Hanging out with friends, walking down the strip and going dancing, going out to eat, seeing a new movie, shopping, working out or playing sports with friends, going to boomer lake or lake Carl Blackwell, mountain biking, hiking, fishing, boating, skiing. These are just a few of the opportunities that are available if you are looking to have a little fun when you're not studying.

    Food and Dining

    There is a large selection of restaurants on campus that offer plenty of options for lunch and breakfast. Some campus locations are open for dinner but the local Stillwater fare within walking distance is definitely worth checking into.

    Dorm Life

    The residential Life here is great! Everyone seems to be friendly and the staff is extremely helpful. Not only this but each residence hall participates in numerous activities as a whole and as separate floors throughout the year. The dorms are also located conveniently close to everything you could need and walking everywhere is an option.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic Rigor is highly dependent on your field of study. However, there are numerous extra-curricular opportunities that offer that extra challenge and reward.

    Tips for prospective students

    I highly recommend this school for anyone who is interested. Take a tour of the campus and come visit. It doesn't take long to fall in love with the great town of Stillwater. I feel like I have lived here my entire life. The athletics program is growing just as fast as the school and the opportunities you will have by attending Oklahoma State University are to numerous to count.

    Campus Safety

    The campus is very safe. There are always campus police driving around checking the area. There is 24 hour enforcement on the campus.

    Greek Life

    I am not involved in a sorority at this point, but from what i have herd it is great for the students. All of the people I know love the group that the joined and love having their Big and Little. The Greek life groups are very involved in many areas of the campus and put on many programs.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are too many clubs to count at OSU. I have joined so much that I can not name it all. There is most likely a club for everyone. We have the gamers club to the International Justice Groups. there is so much to get involved in.

    Great for these types of students

    The town is small so if you like a country experience you will like the atmosphere. Most of the people are friendly and open to new experiences. However, even if you do not like the small town atmosphere, it is only about a 45 min ride on the BOB (our bus free to students) to Tulsa or Oklahoma City.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    We have a nationally ranked Homecoming celebrations. The staff, students, alumni, and community come out and put on events each day. Some of the events include: Homecoming parade with floats built by the residents from each dorm or sorority house. The is a chili contest, and a carnival for the children in the community. The chili is made by the residents and the games for the carnival are created by the residents. Homecoming is great even if you do not attend OSU it is something everyone should experience.

    Bang for the buck

    My tuition is a bit steep because i am an out of state student. However, I believe that it is well worth the experience that I have encountered thus far. I love OSU!

    What to do for fun

    My roommate and I like to have friends over to play bored games, watch movies, or just hang out and talk. We have a movie theater and there is always something going on around campus to do.

    Food and Dining

    I can only ask that we get a Texas Rode House on campus so that I can pay with my Bursar (our payment plan).The food is great there are many choices all over campus, however you will have to walk to get many places. The service is great and the food comes out pretty quickly.

    Dorm Life

    First year I recommend a traditional dorm with a roommate. The location will help you stay involved on campus and you will meet many new people. The rooms are clean, but the bathrooms.... well the custodians can only do so much. I love my roommate and we have our neighbors over as i am typing. Dorms are great!!!

    Academic Rigor

    Math was by far the most challenging for me and it is my favorite subject. Other classes that i have had have been great. The professors enjoy what they are teaching and try to make the students enjoy the class.

    Tips for prospective students

    You should come prepared to work in your classes. Try to attend Camp Cowboy, I had so much fun there. Be sure to get involved on campus and join the clubs associated with your major.

    i believe oklahoma state has something to offer to any type of student. with it being located in a semi-small town, there are generally a good number of ag students in attendance.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    osu has many traditions. my favorite being our annual homecoming celebration; it is outrageous! the entire greek community comes together and spends hours upon hours creating these huge house decks which are displayed in front of the fraternity houses for returning alumni, current students, and fans to view the night before the big game.

    What to do for fun

    during the week stillwater was usually a very boring place to be which was okay because that is the time to study and focus anyway. the weekends were always fun and i never found myself not having anything to do. there is plenty of restaurants to eat at, a movie theater, and a country/hip-hop dance hall.

    Food and Dining

    osu has a wide variety of dining choices! from asian cuisine to all american food, the student union offered it all. there were no yucky cafeterias on campus; they were much better quality places.

    Dorm Life

    my dorm expereince was average. unfortunately, my roommate and i did not mesh well with the other girls on our floor as we found that we were very different from most of them. luckily, we were fellow high school graduates and good friends before school so it turned out all right in the end.

    Academic Rigor

    oklahoma state is a challeging school and certainly not an easy a. it takes time and work dedicated to studies in order to do well academically. however, hard work pays off and the feeling of accomplishment is amazing after receiving those final grades.

    Tips for prospective students

    apply for as many scholarships as possible. i am currently facing a financial burden with trying to figure out a way to pay out of state tuition. become involved as soon as possible when first getting there, it's easy to fall behind and become lonely once the studying and school work takes over.

    Several houses on campus and quality rush events/period.

    Clubs and Activities

    Clubs use chalk on the sidewalk and walls to tell people about their upcoming events. These events range from viewing a moving before it comes out on DVD to having a condom casino night to promote safe sex.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Study outside the library when the weather permits.

    Bang for the buck

    In state tuition is reasonable but the food choices feel overpriced.

    What to do for fun

    Make friends with people who have cars and drive to any of the parks, clubs, or stores and hang out there.

    Food and Dining

    Many restaurants to buy food from and a few convenience stores to stock up on cooking supplies. Does not have many restaurants that stay open later in the day.

    Dorm Life

    Several traditional dorms and on campus apartments to choose from but almost all of them are not competitively priced with off campus living.

    Academic Rigor

    Provides many methods for tutoring and classwork help. Has atleast one computer lab avaliable in every building.

    Tips for prospective students

    Do not waste your meal plan too soon in a semester and utilize the library and one of the many other computer labs for class work.

    In three sentences

    OSU has a diverse offering of majors, academic clubs, and campus organizations. Its academic advisers are knowledgeable on what classes are required and which ones will prove the most difficult.

    What to do for fun

    Library Lawn is a gorgeous place to hang out when it's nice outside. The newly renovated Student Union is amazing!

    Food and Dining

    There are several places to eat on campus. Lunch time is the best time to eat because everything is open.

    Dorm Life

    I love living in the dorms! I like in Zink-Allen. The community is very friendly.

    Academic Rigor

    You might feel that some classes you take are pointless, but they all count. If it's an academic requirement, do the necessary work and make sure you make the grades. Every class counts!

    Tips for prospective students

    Always remember to have fun. College is about growing up and exploring new opportunities. While having fun though, remember to do the work needed for classes and you will have a blast in school.

    Bang for the buck

    Too expensive for the kind of academics that we get.

    What to do for fun

    There are usually a lot of activities that are advertised through out the year. You can always go to the campus gym because there is always some sort of yoga or kick boxing class going on.

    Food and Dining

    I strongly dislike the food because we don't have that many options for dinner. During lunch, the restauraunts in the student union are only open from like 11 a.m. until 3 p.m. and some for a shorter period of time. For dinner most of us have to eat at the same places which are also very over priced.

    Dorm Life

    I live in community style housing and it's expensive for what I get. It's old and dirty and some of the girls on my floor and the floor above me are loud at time. I really like my RA though because she is very helpful and kind and tries to get all of us involved in activities.

    Academic Rigor

    It's not that hard of classes if you pay attention and read directions but sometimes you can have multiple essays due in the same week. The tests are probably the hardest because they are so different from one another. The homework can sometimes be very time consuming but it doesn't usually take too much brain power if you listened in class.

    Tips for prospective students

    I think that prospective students should know to not be afraid to ask questions or go to office hours because it can be very helpful. Also, do no procrastinate because unforeseen work will pile on top of each other before we even realize it. Another thing is to make sure to get involved in as much as you can without putting school last.

    In three sentences

    Oklahoma State is a fun school but the people in charge of housing and bursar are very disrespectful in that they don't treat a lot of us as adults. I have heard a lot of complaints on how some of the bursar and housing people are not very helpful. Other than that the rest of the factulty is very kind and helpful which makes the college experience that much more enjoyable.

    Any student will feel welcomed at OSU. I come from a very diverse background (Arabic and British), and loving attending school here. The most common student at school here is from either Tulsa, Broken Arrow, Oklahoma City, or Edmond.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Most people will wear orange clothing on Friday's to support the school pride. Eskimo Joe's is the hotspot on Thursday night's because they offer an, All You Care to Drink Until 2AM deal for $5 - which is almost unheard of in a college town.

    Bang for the buck

    Oklahoma State University should honestly be a private school. It has the private school look, education, and feel. Yet we are charged public tuition as it's a state school. It's the best investment that I've made so far in my twenty years of life.

    What to do for fun

    Living in such a small town means that you HAVE to stay busy, either academically or socially. A large percentage of students join Greek life, which is a great choice. Otherwise, there are hundreds of other clubs to join, and there is ALWAYS an event to attend on campus! Ironically, Stillwater is one very small town that I could never be bored in.

    Food and Dining

    Which-wich will become your best friend at OSU. Either that, or Chick-fil-A. But really, there are MANY places to eat at the newly renovated Student Union. With a meal plan, you can swipe your Student ID card to charge ANY on-campus meal to your bursar account! There is a wide variety of places to eat on campus.

    Dorm Life

    There are many on-campus housing options to choose from. I lived in Wentz Hall during the first semester of my freshman year, and loved it. It's a co-ed dorm so life never becomes boring there. After freshman year I recommend moving into a suite-style dorm, for more comfortable and spacious living. The Villages are almost luxurious for college students, and are located at the heart of campus.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes are designed to challenge students and make us think. They aren't designed to cause problems or be difficult, but simply make us analyze situations and open minds. I have never had a bad teacher at school here, only thought-provoking intellectuals.

    Tips for prospective students

    Expect and appreciate the wide diversity to be found on the Oklahoma State University campus. There are small-town Christian students, liberal-minded hip students who may longboard to and from class, international students, and those who choose to live in the Greek community.

    In three sentences

    Oklahoma State University in Stillwater could very possibly be the friendliest school campus in North America. We should be charged private-school tuition for attending such a well-maintained university, with highly educated teachers.

    There are so many different activities to get involved with on campus that range from highly athletic activities to more mental and cognitive activities.

    Food and Dining

    The dining options like many universities are limited. Though there are many options on campus it is normal to get tired of the same food everyday. However Stillwater has multiple different off campus eating selections that definitely make up for what the campus lacks.

    Dorm Life

    Oklahoma State has one of the best Residential Life of all Big 12 schools. All students including Freshman have the option of living in tradtional style dorms, suites, on campus apartments, or even off campus. All options are very nice and people usually never want to leave campus.

    Academic Rigor

    Oklahoma State is prided in excelling academically but not necessarily being the most rigorous of universities. The courses here are challenging enough to make you work hard but not so hard that you can not excel with hard work

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are interested in coming here I would suggest joining as many activities as possible, there are many opportunities provided for Freshman, also attend as many sports events as possible!

    The dining choices are acceptable because you have a meal plan to spend. There are many choices to choose from if you want to walk to them. There is buffets, Italian, American, and other nationality choices, etc.

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life is very nice. My experience was fun because I had the ability to leave my family and get used to living without them. I went home every weekend because I lived 30 minutes away, but during the week it was nice. The noise level is acceptable if the RA for your floor enforces the rules. The only part I hated was that we had community showers and bathrooms.

    Academic Rigor

    This is a stressful challenging college because the students pay to attend this college. In high school the teachers were not very hard on the students because I attended a public school. Students pay for the classes they take, so they should want to do well in them.

    My only tip for prospective students would be to join a Greek community if you want to fit in with the college society.

    Since OSU is mainly an Ag school, students looking to study any agriculture related major would be great here, but it seems like this school is good for anybody! The only people I would not suggest go here are people looking to study law.

    What to do for fun

    There is no reason to be bored at this school. Something is almost always going on that students can check out, from movie screenings and art festivals on the lawn, to campus-wide games that everyone can join. There are also an insane amount of clubs and organizations to join. And if campus just isn't the place to be at the moment, the bus system (free for students!) can take you basically anywhere in Stillwater.

    Food and Dining

    First off, the meal plans at OSU are life-savers, and they are amazing for the broke college student. Secondly, OSU does not have a traditional cafeteria, but that's okay because of all the dining options offered on campus. Not only is there a variety of restaurants all over campus to choose from, there are also convenience-style stores in several locations. There is a little something for everyone, and there is definitely no reason to go hungry.

    Dorm Life

    Living on campus is great. OSU has such a wide variety of dorm choices, from traditional dorms to apartment style dorms, that everyone will find something they like. The dorms are within walking distance of everything on-campus, and living in them makes it so easy to meet new people. The only downside is that it is a little pricey, but it's completely worth all the new friends you'll make.

    Academic Rigor

    For the most part the classes are challenging, but worth it. Take the right classes and you won't want to miss them! Most of the professors know what they are talking about (granted there are the ones who have no clue), and there are plenty of places you can go to get help with homework. Don't slack off and get help when you need it and your grades will be fine.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get involved. Join clubs, Greek life, get a job, whatever suits you. It's the fastest, easiest, and best way to find those friends that you'll love and have for life. Also, don't try to get out of the freshman living on campus rule. It's a great experience that everyone should have!

    Campus Safety

    Campus is very safe even at night.

    Greek Life

    Very very active. Dominates the campus, somewhat in a negative way, but it is definitely the place to be if you want to make a name for yourself here.

    Clubs and Activities

    If you go Greek there are plenty of opportunities, and if you don't it's much much harder to get involved.

    Great for these types of students

    Party animals and cowboy types mostly, but minority students and academics can all find their niche as well if they search hard enough.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Homecoming is crazy.

    Bang for the buck

    I go to OSU pretty much for free because they are very generous with scholarships, and make sure you apply while you're a student their for departmental scholarships and for the prestigious campus wide scholarships like the Wentz. You won't win if you don't apply.

    What to do for fun

    Depends on what you life.

    Food and Dining

    OSU has some great on campus restaurants like Chick-fil-a and Which Wich? However, these restaurants are always overrun with students and many are only open at lunchtime on weekdays, presumably to maximize profit for the university (which is, unfortunately, a main goal here as I perceive it). In its defense, Which Wich has the best hours hands down of any restaurant on campus. There's just about any fast food place you'd want within a five minute drive of campus if the on campus eateries don't do it for you, so you will certainly never go hungry. However, they charge the freshman a criminally high amount for a meal plan, which is nonrefundable and that they are forced to buy, so at the end of the year the on campus stores are filled with students wasting hundreds of unused dollars on useless items. The on campus stores take advantage of course and offer deals on items in bulk. The only way to avoid this is to go Greek, but if you do that you will often be a prisoner of the meal times at your house, which is debatably even worse if your schedule doesn't accommodate the meal time. I've done it both ways and you really just can't win as a freshman.

    Dorm Life

    This question is meaningless. Dorm life changes unrecognizably from dorm to dorm. I lived in Kerr for a semester and hated it, and I lived in the Villages for a year and I loved it. If you can afford it, I recommend the Villages. There isn't a lot of residence life activity, so if you're looking for social events, go Greek.

    Academic Rigor

    OSU can be a hard school if you want to challenge yourself, but if you want to breeze by and get your diploma, that can be done here as well.

    Tips for prospective students

    Rush/consider going Greek. Bring a coat. Don't live in Kerr, Drummond or Iba. Apply for merit scholarships they aren't just for those that don't have money. Meet with your advisors. Try to determine your course of study early so you can get the most out of your schedule and classes.

    In three sentences

    Be ready for any weather. If you are social think about going Greek. OSU can become what you want it to be.

    What to do for fun

    OSU has over 30 clubs you can choose from, and some many events that happen throughout the year. There is something out there for everyone. And you can always go out and meet new people. I am too excited for college life.

    Food and Dining

    I'm a Foodie, a girl's got to eat right? Well here at OSU you have the biggest range of restaurants, and different types of food, to satisfy any taste bud. Just thinking of it, makes my mouth water!!

    Dorm Life

    OSU, the vibe, the family feeling that you get is real. They invite you with open arms. And the dorm buildings are very nice. I'll admit I was a little nervous about getting a roommate, but sweat it cause I'm there for school and all the other awesome things will fall in place!

    Academic Rigor

    Just keep your head in the books, and work really hard and I am sure you will succeed. Don't be afraid to ask for help, yes it is an adult environment but adults need help too, and plus some professors enjoy it when you come in during offices hours and ask for help, it means you really want to succeed in their class. And don't forget, you have an entire team backing you up.

    Tips for prospective students

    College is a brand new experience and you want to inhale it all. So incoming Freshman I say to you: Even though you might miss home, living on campus is you stepping out to the adult world, no more of your parents making decisions for you, now its time to make decisions for your self. So go out there and be the best you can be.

    In three sentences

    The professors and Administrators really want you to succeed here and are willing to help you with your goals. The campus is beautiful and as soon as I stepped foot on the Courtyard grass I felt at home. And the atmosphere, so much spirit, so much fun.

    Stillwater offers many attractions and OSU works hard to put on events. With a dance hall in town, bowling alleys, a movie theater, and campus events, there is always something to do.

    Food and Dining

    I really like the fact that there is no cafeteria at Oklahoma State. There are several chain fast food restaurants, as well as restaurants specific to OSU that our Hotel and Restaurant majors manage.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is wonderful at Oklahoma State. The residential office works hard to build each community, and the dorms are updated as OSU is working on building new dorms as we speak.

    Academic Rigor

    Of course classes are difficult, it is college, but overall the rigor of basics at OSU is not extremely difficult if you study and keep up with reading assignments.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply early and fill out your housing application asap. Be sure to put yourself out there and get involved. There is so much to do in Stillwater, there is no reason for anyone to be bored.

And there's a huge music scene, we're not lacking hipsters and country - From Garth Brooks to Kings of Leon.

    Food and Dining

    So many options on campus and it's all very new and updated especially compared to University of Oklahoma or College of Southern Nevada. Plus, you're in the midwest/the south so you can find home cooking at college budget prices and you have all your fast food choices as well. There's a farmers market and everything is never too far if all you have is a bicycle or you have to walk.

    There are many acitivities to join for fun on campus. Clubs are a big hit at Oklahoma State; join in the fun during the Homecoming festivities. Overall, just meeting new people will contribute a lot to the fun.

    Food and Dining

    The food and dining is intermediate. There are not many healthy restaurants on campus, nor are there many places that keep in mind people may have different eating habits (e.g. vegetarians, vegans, etc.). On the other hand, there are many great places to eat, and I am sure there is something for everyone in the brand new student union.

    Dorm life is very lively at Oklahoma State for the most part. There are acitivities to join in every building. This makes for great opportunities to meet new friends!

    Tips for prospective students

    Be sure to get involved with the different activities and programs that are available to you. There are many ways to meet new people that can provide you with friendships to last a lifetime. Also, do not overload yourself on class work to finish early... The stress and amount of work will be overwhelming for new students.

    There are several good restaurants in town, mini golf, a couple of bars, a dance club and some other things around town. You just have to look.

    Food and Dining

    The food tastes great but can be pretty pricey at times if you aren't careful. MEAL Plan is your best friend your first year!

    Dorm Life

    I personally suggest doing the suites if you can afford it because you can get your own room. If you are okay sharing such a small space with a person go for it. I've seen plenty of people that liked the traditional dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    There can be some hard classes but you really do learn quite a bit about the field you are studying in. Every class I've taken so far I've walked away with something.

    Tips for prospective students

    Go with what you enjoy, your adviser can help you the rest of the way. Be honest with them because that is the best way for them to help.

    In three sentences

    This is a great school, they really want the students to succeed in their dreams and future careers. Classes in your degree can be really hands on and the teachers are approachable. I have really been enjoying my time here.

    Campus Safety

    There are cops everywhere round the clock and there are emergency buttons located all over campus in case you are in trouble and need help right away. This campus and town are extremely safe.

    What to do for fun

    For fun there are tons of clubs to join, and you can make new friends there and hang out with them outside of those clubs. There are also events on campus that are free that every student can go to. I also go bowling and to the movies.

    Food and Dining

    There are tons of locations on campus to eat and hang out. The meal plan that you get here helps you with always having money to eat on campus without having to worry about having cash.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are definitely a one of a kind experience. Although they weren't my favorite, I do recommend that you try them out.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes here are kind of challenging but definitely worth the time. Attendance is very strict/necessary in order to do well in all your classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    Save up as much as you can and definitely apply for scholarships to help you out. College is a great experience, but it can be expensive.

    In three sentences

    Campus Safety

    Stillwater is one of silent cities in U.S.A. It means here is very safe and calm. But unfortunately, because of that reason, you do not find any interesting stuff. So, you should find OSU clubs and activities to have interesting stuff from Stillwater.

    Clubs and Activities

    OSU provides you many clubs and activities about over 100 clubs and activities shown on campus. You can choose whatever you are interested.

    What to do for fun

    Join one of your favorite clubs. And have great time with friends from Clubs. Once you become University student, you are not youth anymore. You are being adult. So, you should experience a lot of things which OSU could be providing you. Secondly, join one of student activities.

    Food and Dining

    We have a lot of restaurants here. And many popular brand supply us with bunch of foods. Here OSU, you can choose whatever you want to eat. And employers and employees both are very kind and diligent. Atmosphere of OSU restaurants is very clean and make you feel being in ur house that means very confortable system.

    Dorm Life

    Very free life. And you can make a lot of friends there. And OSU Dorm has bunch of interesting stuff like clubs and activities. But one problem is the one of old building has so small room for two people. It doesn't have enough space to live two people together.

    Academic Rigor

    Accounting major in OSU, that is one of toughest major here because a lot of excellent professors are here. Being a Accountant you should study lots of accounting major books and prepare CPA examination. But here OSU helps you everythings what you want to study and prepare. But to prepare all of things, you should study very hard as here OSU Accounting professors provide bunch of study materials to you every week.

    Tips for prospective students

    First, Choose a major which is what you want and study Second, Study very hard in your major. Thirdly, make friends a lot and experience lots of things whatever you want Finally, meet your favorite and respectable professors and you should listen carefully what they are talking about and ask them whatever you think.

    Orange fridays for students and faculty.

    Bang for the buck

    Good investment for the area and i know of no one who has not been accepted.

    What to do for fun

    bowling, movie watching, local events on campus, walmart shopping.

    Food and Dining

    varied dining experience but most of the locations are maxed out around eleven to one.

    Dorm Life

    Good new building interspersed with old, but freshmen are having to set up in lounges this semester. Overcapacitied to the point they are paying locals to live at home.

    Academic Rigor

    Good classes but some of them are very old fashioned in their structure. Lots of lectures, only the required classes seem to do group learning or clicker quizzes to engage students.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you want to live on campus or not. Problems with enough space for all the on campus students. Shop around for books when enrolling in campus. The student store may allow you to charge your books but they are also higher than somewhere like amazon.

    In three sentences

    Good campus setup which allows for ease of getting from class to class. Parking is a problem though. Not enough for everyone and the dorms are having problems accommodating everyone who wants to live on campus this semester.

    Campus Safety

    A very safe and secure campus. Emergency blue buttons all over campus that contact the police in dire situations which are helpful if a situation were to occur.

    Greek Life

    Fraternities and Sororities are huge on campus at OSU. With around 40 to choose from there is one that suits everyone's values.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is a club or group for EVERYTHING. A student could go to a meeting every day if they wanted to for different clubs and organizations.

    Great for these types of students

    Great for any student. Every type of student will be able to find something they like at OSU. From dining to groups on campus everyone will find something they like.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    For students it's football games during the fall semester. The student section is filled with thousands of people with more school spirit than I've ever seen anywhere else.

    Bang for the buck

    It's a public university so it is a little costly, but it is definitely comparative to other universities in the state and in the region.

    What to do for fun

    There are so many clubs and organizations there is always something to do. On top of that The Colvin, the recreational center on campus, is three floors of the greatest workout and weight training equipment.

    Food and Dining

    Many options all over campus. The newly renovated Student Union has many different types of food that will satisfy any hunger craving.

    Dorm Life

    Living in traditional dorms, many people are afraid of sharing showers and bathrooms with the rest of the floor, but dorm life has been the greatest part of the college experience thus far.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes aren't impossible, but require determination on the part of the Student. Teachers are more than willing to help students that put forth the effort. On top of all that there are many student centers that have tutoring hours to help struggling students, for free.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get out of your comfort zone. It's easy to stay in your dorm room all day and just go to class and come back. However, what makes college life enjoyable if you get out and join a club and meet new people.

    In three sentences

    It's a beautiful campus with more clubs and opportunities than anybody could ever hope for. Diversity, and creativity are two words to describe life at OSU. With over 1500 students from all over the world and 450 student organizations, there is something for everyone.

    Campus Safety

    Campus safety is excellent. There are always campus policeman present around the campus and there are many emergency kiosks around campus if you are in need of urgent help.

    Greek Life

    The Greek Life is a major emphasis on OSU's campus and they are highly involved with big events like homecoming. Although I am not personally in a fraternity, both fraternities and sororities seem to be great communities.

    Clubs and Activities

    OSU has an innumerable number of clubs and activities ranging from intramural sports to greek life.

    Great for these types of students

    Although I'd recommend this school to many different types of people, the school definitely has an emphasis on a western culture, as it is a school in the western part of the country. A lot of people go dancing at bars in Stillwater for fun. I personally don't and still have a lot of fun though. In terms of majors, OSU is a great engineering school with a lot of really great professors that I feel very comfortable with guiding me towards a well-rounded and useful engineering major.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    This isn't exactly a sanctioned tradition, but swimming in the fountain is a lot of fun!

    Bang for the buck

    OSU has great facilities that are greatly helpful both in the academic and rec sphere. I feel that the cost of attendance is still a little high with the volume of students able to attend, but those matters are out of my hands.

    What to do for fun

    Intramural sports are an excellent outlet for fun. I play volleyball and basketball in both semesters and have a great time. They have tons of options depending on what sport you like and they always have multiple divisions for a range of casual to very competitive athletes.

    Food and Dining

    There are quite a few options, although I could personally go for a few more. The lines get pretty bad during lunch time and I think some more dining options would lessen that congestion.

    Dorm Life

    I actually never lived in a dorm because of financial reasons, but I had many friends who did live in dorms and from my experience being around those places, the RA's are very involved and the community is a good experience.

    Academic Rigor

    Most of my classes are very challenging but many classes are taught by excellent professors who make them much better. (This will vary based on major selection)

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply immediately if you're considering! The school is growing quickly and you want to get in quickly to get the best opportunities in housing and classes to have a great first year.

    In three sentences

    Oklahoma State is a great environment both academically and extracurricularly. I've had a great experience here academically so far and believe that will continue to be the case. I strongly recommend Oklahoma State.

    Outstanding! This is the area that concerned my parents. We have a full staff of Stillwater police that patrols 24-7. Also, we have emergency poles all over the campus. All you have to do is press the button and police are right there to help you. Don't worry about the parties lasting to long, the police will stop it and every one goes home.

    Greek Life

    I have not joined the Greek life. I do have several friends that have. OSU has a beautiful street for all the houses. Honestly, i cannot comment to much because I am not involved. I can at least say that I have not heard any bad stories.

    Clubs and Activities

    The list goes on and on. There is every intramural sport, swimming, bowling, community service, one of the largest recreational centers, church clubs, theatre clubs, movie nights and concerts on the park.

    Great for these types of students

    OSU is a great fit for any type of student. Myself, I am interracial and was concerned about being accepted. Believe me, no one should have any problems adjusting at this campus. Just remember, your destiny is in your hands and you will always remember these years.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Freshman welcome week is a wonderful tradition. They have a special ceremony for you and you have to walk across the orange carpet for acceptance. Our alumni is wonderful. And watch out for football games at home. The posse will make sure you feel welcome.

    Bang for the buck

    The campus is flawless. There is alot of beautiful meeting places, like the Theta pond, Farmers Market, the fountain, and we even have our own Atherton hotel on campus, OSU offers free tutorials and we have a lot of resource labs to help you.

    What to do for fun

    The city of Stillwater is catered to the OSU students. There is places to shop, movie theatre, restaurants, beautiful lakes, bowling and the list goes on and on. OSU offers their own shuttle to local places, so you don't even need a car.

    Food and Dining

    Choices are endless on campus, no matter if you are a healthy eater or a junk food junkie. Majority of the eating places are good, prices are a little steep. You have a lot of restaurant choices off campus that are very close.

    Dorm Life

    There is so many choices at OSU. Dorms to fit every budget. Each dorm has their own special features, some are traditional while others are small apartments. In a short period of time, every one in your dorm becomes all one family! I love the atmosphere. Every Sunday we have dinner together.

    Academic Rigor

    Take caution on how many hours you sign up for. College homework and exams are different from high school. You must allow your self enough time to study. Your first semester, you are adjusting so don't put any extra stress on your shoulders.

    Tips for prospective students

    Enter with an open mind! All of those things you said that you would never do, give it a try. Join a club or organization, play intermural sports, get involved in campus life. And always remember, alot of the other students are looking for new friends just like you. Dont be shy, leave your high school days behind and start a new chapter in your life. Show up for all your classes and wake up on time. Take time to relax, have fun but remember why you are here.

    In three sentences

    I am a freshman and started school fall of this year. I am from Texas, so I really did not know a soul attending OSU. Every one is very friendly with much support to offer. At this time, on a scale 1-10, I would rate OSU a 9. The campus is beautiful and security is good.

    Campus Safety

    Every time I go out I see a patrol car, they are on top of it over here. In our student union there is always a uniform. I've walked by myself numerous times, and nothing bad has yet to happen to me. I feel totally safe here.

    Greek Life

    I'm not part of the Greek life here, but my freshman orientation teacher is the coordinator, and if her personality is any reflection on how the Greek like is here, then I'm sure it's amazing, because she is the nicest, approachable, and most understanding I have yet to meet.

    Clubs and Activities

    Wow cannot even begin to describe all the amazing opportunities to get involved in on campus. There is a website just for this, and can help you search for the kind of club(s) you're looking for. I have joined a couple and they are so much fun, and it's a great way to make new friends. There is business, vet, and pre-med, and so many academic clubs. You also have medieval, running, and writing, and more as well.

    Great for these types of students

    If you like to get a lot of scholarships then this is your school. Also if you like knowing that you can have help at any time then this school is definitely for you, and if you want the best education ever then look no further.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Unfortunately, I'm not sure about any unusual traditions but I'm only a freshman and I personally haven't looked into that, but there may be something coming up that will happen. As for locations we have Theta Pond, which is very pretty at night I love to go there and read. There's a garden that's also beautiful. I don't really pay attention to things, and that's just me, but this campus is huge so I'm sure there is something I've missed, and you'll just have to come here and look yourself, and then show me.

    Bang for the buck

    This school gives away so many scholarships, that you're saving before you even start classes. However, there are places outside of campus that if you're a student you get discounts, which is always good.

    What to do for fun

    When I first arrived I thought this place would be boring, but it really isn't. The campus does a lot of events like movie nights on the library lawn, and then Fraternities and Sororities have a lot of events going on. Outside of school, I'm not too sure because I'm having the time of my life doing in-school events, but I do enjoy the occasional movie, which we get a discount on.

    Food and Dining

    The food here is AMAZING! I love eating on campus, my dorm is one of the lucky ones that has a dining place inside it, and a little grocery store as well, so it's very accessible. I don't have a car or bike, so the distance is great maybe a five-seven minute walk to farthest dinning place. I love the food on campus.

    Dorm Life

    Varies, depending on the kind of dorm set-up you choose. I chose the all girl dorm building, and it's cool. Of course you get the bad neighbors or the girls who don't follow the hall rules, and that gets really annoying. However, there are also the good parts, like movie nights and game nights. You get to meet people who are really cool and make great friends.

    Academic Rigor

    Of course they expect us to do great in classes, but the faculty here knows that we are also human and not perfect. They expect little mistakes, but they don't expect us to fail completely. They want to teach those who want to be taught, and if someone who is trying is struggling they will help to the best of their abilities, but we have to be the ones to initiate that help otherwise failure is an option. They don't waste their time on people who screw around, and won't accept that kind of behavior or work ethic.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't be afraid to try new things, and make sure when you're at orientation or Camp Cowboy (if you go) that you make connections because those will be you're first new college buddies and they will definitely be a big help and a plus to have. I didn't really make that many friends at my orientation and I didn't go to Camp Cowboy, and it was harder for me to talk to people, because they already knew each other from those events. Furthermore, talk to the professors and advisors, they love that, and they'll be the ones to write future recommendation letters for you, but they won't know you if you never talk to them, because like I said OSU is a big campus, so classes vary in size from 20 people to 200 people in a class. Last but definitely not least don't be afraid to ask for help, college is NOT like high school you cannot really BS your way through and they will not coddle you, I failed my first chemistry exam, because I was afraid, but I'd much rather risk my pride than fail and waste money.

    In three sentences

    I never thought a big school would be for me, I thought it would be too overwhelming, and that I'd miss my family too much, but OSU has so many people willing to help you. There is so much life on campus and resources for help with school and life, and tons of organizations that you don't know where to start, luckily the amazing faculty here can help you with that too, coming to this school is the best choice I have ever made, hands down!

    OSU offers a lot of scholarships which is definitely a plus and one of the reasons I chose to go.

    What to do for fun

    Once again, there is always something going on on campus. Just get involved and that will keep you busy :) The tumbleweed is also pretty popular.

    Food and Dining

    I've enjoyed all of the food here on campus, and there are many options to choose from. The restaurants in the dorms are going to be open later than anywhere else so if you're craving something from the union, get it early! Also, go a random times during the day like 3:00 to avoid dinner and lunch rushes.

    Dorm Life

    I've lived in Drummond my whole time here and it's pretty good for the most part. It's centrally located on campus which is very convenient compared to some of the more expensive dorms that are farther away. It's a fair trade between cheaper living, and not as nice rooms with community bathrooms versus nicer rooms but inconvenient location.

    Academic Rigor

    All of the professors I have had have been good at teaching and are easy to understand. They do move fast though when they lecture so be sure to pay attention and study hard for exams because they can be difficult. Tip: If you're allowed to bring your lap top to class, do it, it'll save you time and your notes will look more organized for future reference.

    Tips for prospective students

    Whatever you do, get involved. It's the best way to meet friends and get to know the campus. However, make sure not to overwhelm yourself with too much, you want to keep those grades up!

    In three sentences

    OSU has a very friendly atmosphere and there is never a lack of things to do on campus. There is definitely a lot of school spirit here, so make sure to invest in some orange!

    Ask lots of questions, often. This is the largest freshman class in OSU's history, so if you are lost or you do not understand just ASK.

    Bang for the buck

    Some of the student fees are ridiculous, and out of state tuition seems a little high, but the education will be worth it in the end.

    What to do for fun

    I have a great residence hall, it's a great way for community being on a living-learning floor where we are all in the same major. We will go out to dinner some nights. There are plenty of activities on campus during the weeks. I have gotten involved with some great organizations where people love to get together on their free time and watch a movie or play sand volleyball. The lawn is a great place to hang out with a group of friends or just a couple. There is plenty of space to spread out and relax or play a game of football.

    Food and Dining

    There are great places to eat, and a huge variety of options. When you're craving mexican...we have a place for that, and pizza...we have a place for that...and some good BBQ...we have a great place for that.

    Living-learning communities are a great place to live, especially as a first year freshman. It provides a great place for friendships to form. You have a lot of the same classes because your all in the same major which creates for great study session times.

    Definitely a step up or two from high school. You really need to put your best work effort into it, but the professors here want to see your succeed and will help you in any way they can.

    Crime does happen on campus, but OSU PD does their best to respond and react quickly. They are very helpful. There are also blue emergency posts scattered around campus that are reported to have quick response times from the OSU PD.

    Greek Life

    Greek life is very popular at OSU and they definitely benefit our community.

    Great for these types of students

    OSU is a great fit for any type of student. There are all different types of people walking around on campus, and they are all super friendly.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Oklahoma State's homecoming is the largest in the nation. Sororities and fraternities work together to build large murals made of tiny pieces of tissue paper for thousands to walk around and view. It is an amazing experience that I would recommend to anyone.

    Bang for the buck

    You are definitely getting what you are paying for at OSU. There are quality professors and programs, while you are also getting the social experience with all of the sports programs going on. There is always something going on on campus. The dorms are also very nice for their price.

    What to do for fun

    Stillwater is a small town, but students like to go to the Tumbleweed, a dance hall in town, on the weekends. The bowling alley is also a fun place to hang out with friends during free time.

    Food and Dining

    Unfortunately there are not that many healthy dining choices. The dining hours are also inconvenient.

    Dorm Life

    Living in a dorm during freshman year is amazing. I met so many people and developed so many friendships living with these people. There is always something going on. The dorms at OSU are also some of the nicest I have ever seen.

    Academic Rigor

    I feel that I am definitely earning my degree. I am a part of the College of Media & Strategic Communications, which is one of 114 accredited journalism programs in the country. You are definitely getting a quality education here.

    Oklahoma State University has a great campus police program because you can call for help at any time by pressing a red button on the poles around campus and the campus police will be there immediatley

    Great for these types of students

    It has one of the best engineering programs in the nation, so this school is really good for engineering students.

    Bang for the buck

    The cost to attend this university not bad at all especially for in state students but its a little higher for out of state students, its a lot more cheaper than other Oklahoma schools that I know of like the university of Oklahoma.

    What to do for fun

    I always have fun at Oklahoma State University. The football games are a blast to go to every time I go even though the tickets are kinda expensive and the basketball games are just as fun. The great thing is that all the soccer games are free and I always have a good time there. OSU also has a recreation center called the colvin center where you can run, lift weights, play basketball, football, take dance classes, karate classes and tons of other things.

    Food and Dining

    The food and dining on campus is very expensive and the stores have items that are overpriced but it is starting to become a more healthier campus to eat which is good. There are many places to eat on campus with a variety of different types of foods on and off campus.

    Dorm Life

    I had an amazing experience with Dorm Life because I lived in the traditional dorms where everybody is real close to each other and can form a long lasting friendship. The suites such as the villages, patch and Jones are great for community but the difference is that you have more privacy than the traditional dorms like Kerr and Drummond.

    Academic Rigor

    Oklahoma State University has an amazing academic program!! There are tons of tutoring options for all your classes. The Honors College is a great program that makes sure that you have the best teachers on campus which means more work but its worth it in the long run. There are also academic mentors in every dorm to help you be successful in your major as well.

    Tips for prospective students

    My tips for you is to study for all your tests a week in advance because college is nothing like high school, eat healthy and workout normally to prevent gaining the freshmen 15, and manage your time by making a schedule of what you are going to do for the week.

    In three sentences

    Oklahoma State University is America's Brightest Orange that has a very beautiful campus. There are tons of majors, clubs, and student organizations to choose from. There is a place here at Oklahoma State University where every student can feel at home in the cowboy family.

    What to do for fun

    Nothing.

    Food and Dining

    There's a variety of dining options at OSU, no cafeteria, but on the plus side, there are a lot of convenience stores apart of the campus. Whatever you do, don't get their prepared salads!!

    Dorm Life

    Whatever you do, don't live in the Villages! I had the WORST experience, the walls are super thin, and if you live in a two-bedroom room, prepare to hear whenever someone flushes above you!!

    Academic Rigor

    The school's academic values are high, and they expect you to do good, however, you'll run into a lot of professors that are extremely unhelpful, same goes for the tutors.

    Tips for prospective students

    Tour the campus! Don't go to a school blindly, find out if this school really is for you. Also, don't forget to meet with advisers for your prospective major, they are EXTREMELY helpful!

    In three sentences

    If you're interested in majors involving Mechanical or Agriculture, this school is for you. Otherwise, don't even bother. I was an Animal Science major, and boy, I was not prepared for the college experience. Luckily for me, I got a great adviser who showed me the ropes, and helped me through my first semester here. I will be transferring the second semester to a much better school.

    Great for these types of students

    OSU Tulsa is especially great for older or more mature students just looking for a good university and an affordable degree. It is also great for students that do not like large crowds or huge classes.

    Bang for the buck

    Oklahoma State tuition is very affordable and offers good scholarships, especially for those with good academic standing. Summer and intermission classes are a little more pricey but still a deal in comparison to other major universities. Although tuition is cheap, fees seem to be increasing every year. My fees are almost equal to the cost of my tuition.

    Food and Dining

    Not much available around OSU Stillwater or OSU Tulsa as far as food goes. Stillwater has more sit-down restaurants nearby. OSU Tulsa has a Subway on campus, but if you want anything else, you have to get in your car and drive a few miles downtown or settle on McDonald's or Sonic.

    Dorm Life

    I did not live in the dorms because I transferred to OSU as a Junior.

    Academic Rigor

    Many of the business courses you are required to take are very repetitive and require about the same amount of time and effort, especially marketing and management classes. There are at least two business courses that involve a serious amount of studying and usually advisers will give you fair warning to not enroll in these courses in the same semester.

    Tips for prospective students

    Definitely visit the campus and plan ahead. Enrollment for required classes fill up fast and so do appointments with advisers. Also, take some time to learn how to sign into your school emails and D2L, the online classroom and community where much of your class information and grades will be posted. I have been at OSU half a year now and am still learning about D2L!

    In three sentences

    Overall, a good university (especially for business-oriented majors) with highly talented instructors and some challenging and exciting courses. The campus is serene but very much a young campus. I would advise against higher education at this particular campus and switch to the Tulsa location instead, where classes are more tailored to older, full-time students.

    What to do for fun

    Since I'm from such a small town, it seems to me that there is tons to do. If you're from a medium-small sized city, it might get a little boring for you, but if you're from a small town there should be enough to hold you over.

    Food and Dining

    The student union has a wide variety of fast food, if that's your thing. Like I said earlier Eskimo Joe's is just around the corner and there is also a steakhouse on campus, and numerous restaurants around town that cater to all tastes.

    Dorm Life

    Dorms were pretty typical, you get what you pay for.

    Academic Rigor

    The College of Engineering, Architecture, and Technology impressed me. They seemed to have a very knowledgeably staff and happy students. They also had some CRAZY equipment in their basement.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply early, visit the campus, and take the ACT at every available opportunity so that you can put your best foot forward score-wise.

    In three sentences

    OSU has a large campus that feels incredibly small, and home town-y, and is filled with tons of nice people. The campus is in a really safe neighborhood, and there are lots of school spirit shops and the famous Eskimo Joe's within walking distance of the school. The student union is also really nice, having recently been remodeled.

    Campus Safety

    The campus police are the best. One day my car wouldn't start and all my friends were in class and I just called the campus police and they came within a matter of 5 minutes to jump start my car, and they were super nice, too! There are also emergency light stands all around campus and in the parking lots for our safety.

    Greek Life

    Greek life is very big here. The houses are right across the street from campus and they are all gigantic and absolutely beautiful. Once homecoming rolls around, the greek houses all make giant moving murals out of huge iron and covering it completely in tissue paper, called pomping. These can be seen at okstate.com because there is really no way to describe its awesome presentation.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are over 200 clubs and organizations on campus. You can join some that are major related that look great on your resume, OR you can just join some for fun such as the Quidditch team or the Medieval Warrior Club. Some are goofy, but it is a great way to meet some really nice people! Also, the Colvin center holds fun activities such as hiking trips through the mountains or midnight glow runs where the side-liners throw glow paint on you as you run by.

    Great for these types of students

    Any student that is scared of leaving home, you will make friends right away and the faculty and staff will feel like family to you. Any student who is ready to learn! The learning environment here is new and exciting and it is ready for you to begin! Any boy or gal who loves the country! Oklahoma State is the cowboys! Not everyone here is a country person but those who are certainly belong here.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    As some may know, OSU holds the most National Championships in the Big Twelve Conference and wrestling is our biggest winner. We have the Wrestling Hall of Fame on our campus right next to our giant football stadium. Theta Pond is another tradition we hold here. It was once a tank for horses back in the 1800s and it looks better than ever now with its annual beautification. And, Old Central is our honors college that has been here since the beginning of the college when it was called Oklahoma A&M back in the day.

    Bang for the buck

    Oklahoma State is my favorite place to be. It is located 30 minutes off the highway and it is just a pleasant place for your first year away from home and your family because everyone here feels like your family within a few weeks. Orange and Black never gets old to anyone here and everyone here loves it as much as I do! Go pokes.

    What to do for fun

    Stillwater is a small town, but very much like a giant family community. So many people here like to hang out at one of the many lakes we have here. We also have a ton of camping spots if that's your thing. Many of my friends and I love going down to the humane society just to hang out with all the puppies! And, the Stillwater campus is never not doing anything. There are concerts, parties and charity events ALWAYS going on. Any sport event here is special. It is an experience you have to be a part of. All I can say about them is they are absolutely fantastic.

    Food and Dining

    The campus food is pretty good. The meal plan options give you so much extra money so you can eat at the two fine dining restaurants on campus: Taylor's and The Rancher's Club. The cafeteria food is not bad at all!

    Dorm Life

    The dorm life here is like a giant family. Every floor is connected in its own way, whether it be a ping pong table, a lounge with TLC on the TV or paint wars: 3rd floor against 2nd floor. Dorm life is fun and the walk to and academic building is literally only a 10 minute walk or less.

    Academic Rigor

    Academics here are very exciting and once you get your basics out of the way, learning is a new and awesome experience!

    Tips for prospective students

    Never skip class. The faculty here love their jobs and are willing to help you with anything, so don't be afraid!

    Great for these types of students

    This school is great for kids who have grown up in small or medium sized towns. Students from big cities might find Stillwater boring because there really isn't a city around to provide entertainment. If you can't have fun doing campus activities, going out to dinner, going to the movies, or simply hanging out on campus with friends then OSU is not for you.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Homecoming is a really big deal at OSU! The Greek organizations make huge displays made out of tissue paper and thousands of people flock to Stillwater that weekend to see the parade and the displays. Eskimo Joe's and Hideaway Pizza are a must anytime you have extra cash to spend and every Halloween there's a Human vs. Zombies game campus-wide.

    Bang for the buck

    The tuition is fairly reasonable considering how high quality OSU is and they are very generous with scholarship opportunities.

    The food is great and there are a lot of options if you're willing to explore campus. Along with the restaurants in the Union, each dorm building has its own restaurant or restaurants. The campus has everything from country BBQ to an ethnic kitchen and quick stop convenience stores. The food is expensive, about the same as eating out at a standard restaurant, but the amount of food you get and the quality of it is worth the money.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are definitely community style and they really try to create that family feel among the floors. The RA's are very friendly and helpful and are always organizing movie nights and floor activities like decorating for holidays.

    Academic Rigor

    The courses are hard if you don't study. The Gen Ed classes here are at a higher level than if taken at a community college, but most professors are very good at explaining things in a different way if you don't understand. There is also free tutoring for almost everything as well as a Writing Center to help improve any kind of paper.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take some time and tour the campus because it will make you familiar with the campus and you have the possibility of meeting friends on the tour. Definitely sign up for Welcome Week. It's a great opportunity to make friends and it allows you to become adjusted to college life. Try to get involved as much as possible, otherwise you'll be bored sometimes. The campus has many clubs and organizations that suit any student. All you have to do is put yourself out there and you'll find yourself making friends and becoming successful.

    The food is great! There's probably anything you can think of from pizza to pasta or burritos and tacos. You honestly just have to know where there are, some of the food places are kind of hidden. I didn't know about most of the really good food places until second semester but I'm glad I did.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is such a fun experience that everyone needs to have. Even though it may not be the cleanest or the nicest, it's still so much fun to get to know everyone on your floor. Every freshman should live in dorms and experience having a roommate.

    Tips for prospective students

    There's too many tips to count. I was given the most awesome tips when I came here and the most important one is do NOT walk up the front stairs to Morril Hall, everyone will know you're a freshman. Also, keep up with your work and stay on task, teachers won't be there to hunt you down like they did in high school.

    In three sentences

    Oklahoma State University is an outstanding institution where everyone is friendly. In my instance, I was not really sure at all I wanted to come to OSU up until the day I moved in to my dorm, but right away I was greeted by so many people excited for me to be there. We are all one big family and it makes me feel at home being here.

    Food and Dining

    The food and dining is better than most colleges. What is very nice is that OSU has a few restaurants that are familiar such as Johnny Rocket's and Which Wich. In the end, you are still eating college food, which isn't going to be amazing, but the options are okay. What the school could improve upon is accommodations for students with food allergies.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are wonderful if you are able to get into some of the suites there are to offer. As for traditional dorm life, Oklahoma State has some very old dormitories, but I have heard that there are plans to rebuild in the future to accommodate more students and to have newer living facilities.

    Academic Rigor

    Depending on what major you are in, your classes will vary in intensity. The general education classes are as easy as it gets for a college course. They are usually taught by graduate students who make it so that students can achieve an A as long as they just show up.

    In three sentences

    Oklahoma State is a wonderful, prideful community in the small town of Stillwater, Oklahoma. The campus is a wonderful and safe campus, and the people are just your normal college students.

    Campus Safety

    I think the campus at Oklahoma State University is one the safest campuses in the nation. There are security stations that can be seen from anywhere on campus, and if you push the button at the station the Campus Police Department will be there in no time.

    Greek Life

    I am not affiliated with Greek Life, but I know that it is a big group at OSU with a lot of people involved. Also the Greek Life host a number of activities for students and is a great way to really get involved on campus.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are more clubs than anyone could even begin to mention on campus, with new ones being added all the time. Clubs are a great part of college because it is a perfect way to meet other students with the same interest as you. The clubs on campus are very involved and make you feel like part of the family.

    Great for these types of students

    Oklahoma State University is great for all types of students. It is the perfect place to let loose and just be yourself because there is such a variety of people on campus that you will always find people just like you. I would say this campus is best for a student that is looking for a college that offers a perfect balance of work and play.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Library lawn is a beautiful place where students can gather and throw the football, read, study or just hang out and enjoy yourself. Also before home football games there is tailgating events all over campus. There is a huge fountain in front of the library that is orange on game days to show school spirit.

    Bang for the buck

    Lets face it college is not cheap, but if you factor in all of the things Oklahoma State University has to offer then you can really start to see worth the money it is. Its up to the student to take full advantage of all the services this school has to offer, and if you do it will be well worth every penny you spend.

    What to do for fun

    Students get discounted season tickets to athletic events where students and alumni gather for some of the most fun you could ever have. Also the Colvin Recreational Center has a wide range of things to do including: eight basket ball courts, a weightlifting room, cardio equipment, a track, a rock wall, and so much more. Intramural sports are also a fun activity for students where you can meet a lot of lifelong friends.

    Food and Dining

    With more than 30 different options on campus, their is always something that sounds good. Many options are open extended hours for late night study sessions which is great. Along with the variety of dining there are many healthy options on campus to help as Oklahoma State University strives to be the healthiest campus nation-wide.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is great, and is where you will meet some of your best friends. It is a high since of community in the dorms and everyone knows everyone. Roommates neighbors, and the residential advisers all want to have fun and hang out, but at the same time are respectful and very helpful with class.

    Academic Rigor

    The classwork, as college should be, is both challenging and rewarding. It should not be expected that you walk in to every class and breeze by with minimal effort. Caring and intelligent professors along with multiple tutoring offices around campus, make getting good grades easily attainable with moderate effort from the student.

    Tips for prospective students

    The first thing you should do is schedule a tour of the campus, and bring your family. On your tours you will be able to look at the dorms, the dining options, the classroom buildings, the recreational center, the sports facilities and so much more. Also I recommend researching what type of degrees you are interested in and going to look at and talk with that department.

    In three sentences

    The school is a great experience for anyone, no matter their background. There are many events and gatherings that make the school seem like a family. The classwork is challenging and you really work for it, but in the end, with all the resources available, you can still get the grades you need.

    Campus Safety

    Our campus is the safest in the Big 12 Conference. All of campus there are 'emergency towers' with bright blue lights on the top. No matter where you are on campus you can always see at least one emergency tower. I feel safe no matter what time of the night or where I am on campus.

    Greek Life

    I am not in a sorority, but it is thriving on this campus. People are very proud and wear the colors of their Greek life everyday.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are hundreds of clubs on campus. Everyday there is a new flier stating some sort of activity, my favorite are the different Zumba Fests, movies in the Union, free pancakes on finals night, and far too many other to name.

    Great for these types of students

    Being an Animal Science major, I am exposed to all of the different club the college of Agriculture has to offer. If you are into being actively involved like I am, join as many clubs as your schedule can fit.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I wouldn't say there are any 'unusual' traditions, but there definitely are traditions. After every touchdown the entire stadium starts 'waving wheat'. Also, on campus there is a sandwich shop called 'Which-Wich', best food on campus if you ask me.

    Bang for the buck

    Being from California, I have to pay out-of-state tuition. The extra fees are well worth it. The education you get here is far better than you could get in California. Being a student here, I know I am getting my money's worth.

    What to do for fun

    When visiting Oklahoma State University make sure you attend at least one football game. The traditions that date back some time are still alive and well present at the games. My favorite part about Oklahoma State is the school spirit. Off campus there is a little restaurant call Eskimo Joe's. You must go there and get cheese fries, they are the best fries you will have. It is a very fun atmosphere.

    Food and Dining

    The food and dining on campus is phenomenal. Just in the Student Union alone there are many different restaurants with many different types of food. All over campus there are cafes to study and get coffee in along with restaurants in almost every building.

    Dorm Life

    I did not live on campus at Oklahoma State, therefore I cannot weigh in accurately. I transferred from a junior college so, I decided to live in an apartment off campus. From the campus tour I took before being enrolled it seemed like the campus life here was great. I see fliers all of campus showing off all of the events the different dorms are having. There is a variety of living situations here: traditional dorms, apartments, suits, etc.

    Academic Rigor

    As at every college, it is important for you to focus on your studies. Oklahoma State has many resources to help students in almost (if not) every subject at school. Professors want to see students succeed. No matter what subject you are finding yourself having a hard time in there is always someone willing to help until you understand.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you love the color orange, there is a lot of school spirit here. Always check on ratemyprofessor.com before registering for classes; do not look for the easiest teachers, but for the teachers that deliver the lectures the best. The key to doing well is school is making sure you have good professors.

    In three sentences

    There is a reason Oklahoma State is call 'Princeton of the Plains', it is a very good school. Oklahoma State was at the top of my list because of it's wonderful Animal Science Program. I would recommend OSU to any student pursuing a degree in any agriculture field.

    Campus Safety

    Campus safety is hugely promoted on campus. There are emergency buttons on every sidewalk, and a nightly patrol always driving nearby. They strictly enforce their laws within the campus boarders and come into all the freshman orientation classes to teach campus safety.

    Greek Life

    The Greek life has both a good and bad reputation, depending on which fraternities and sororities you are referring to. A lot of parties make up a good portion of the greek free time, and many of the people joining have a tendency to be buying connections, though this is probably a common factor throughout many colleges. On the other hand, it is a good way to make lifetime friends and makes you very active in many college activies, such as welcome week, rush, homecoming, and much more. It also gives you a chance to live in a house on campus and have a large studying group to help with classes.

    Bang for the buck

    Honestly, everything on campus is very overpriced. It is definitely worth the trip to Walmart or other specialty stores to buy school supplies and groceries.

    What to do for fun

    There are tons of organizations and activities constantly going on that keep everyone on their toes!

    Food and Dining

    I honestly never found the food on campus all that great, but its edible, as is anything when you are hungry. The campus does try and promote healthier options in their vending machines and restaurants, but they don't offer quite enough options to make it into an easy daily habit.

    Dorm Life

    All the buildings are clean and maintained, and food is easily accessible all around campus. Almost everyone in the dorms are super friendly too! They also have tons of activities going on to keep things interesting on those off-homework days.

    Academic Rigor

    I find that many instructors and councilors and very forgiving to your first semester gpa. A lot of them see the transition from high school to college as a struggle. And it is! There are tons of ways to stay actively studying within the school, and tons of people willing to help you out!

    Tips for prospective students

    If you find yourself unhappy with your major, try a different one! The process to switch is super simple and helps you to find what you really want to do in life.

    In three sentences

    This college has spirit and a welcoming atmosphere, yet also as a large group of goal driven students. Everyone that I have met is unique and intelligent, if not in their own way. I have only been here for a semester so far and cannot wait for the semesters to come!

    There haven't been many problems with safety, i see about 5 campus cops every time i walk outside. Also they have emergency stations everywhere on campus. If you have an emergency you simply run to a station, press the button and the police will be there immediately.

    Greek Life

    I'm not involved in Greek life, but i have plenty of friends who are. They seem to really enjoy it, if your searching for a brotherhood and sisterhood, greek is the way to go! OSU greek life isn't secluded either, Greek life interacts with residential life a lot, to put on programs together. Also greek life helps greatly to put on America's Greatest Homecoming. we have the best homecoming in the nation, and Greek life puts on a terrific show.

    Clubs and Activities

    I'm personally involved in 6 clubs and organizations, i found it very easy to get involved and interact with people. With over 300 clubs on campus, there is a club for everyone. With so many clubs, there are campus wide events that go on weekly, so there is always something to do.

    On campus there is a pond, its called Theta pond. Its right between Greek Row and Campus. There is a legend that there used to be a huge fish, or creature that lived in the pond. The pond is very gloomy, and swampy, so many don't venture into the pond!

They all have the newest computers and programs.

    What to do for fun

    I found that there is plenty to do for fun. You can easily get involved on campus with intramurals, clubs, events, and the famous Tumbleweed. Tumbleweed is a dance club for ages 18 and over. It's mostly a two stepping paradise, but they also have a hip-hop side. This place is usually full of college students on the weekends.

    Campus Safety

    The Oklahoma State campus is extremely safe. The campus police are an actual police force and their presence is very clear. If it is late at night and someone does not feel safe walking home alone, they are more than willing to come to their aid and escort them back. The blue lights on campus are a great way to get police attention quickly if something unexpected and unwanted happens. I have never felt unsafe here.

    Greek Life

    Greek Life has a great reputation here. There seems to be great camaraderie within the houses and the activities they take part in draw a great group of students. Every fraternity and sorority has pride in who they are and in what they do for the university.

    Clubs and Activities

    OSU offers an incredible amount of activities. There are clubs for practically anything you could imagine. There are religious groups, professional organizations, artistic and performance clubs, and athletic activities to get involved in. Practically all students are involved in some organization in some way. They take pride in what they do and truly want to make the school a more welcoming and exciting place.

It does not sound very exciting, but it is great to see how much people care about the school.

There are so many people and the Greek Life students make fantastic artistic displays to commemorate the celebration. Every year, many students take part in Humans v. Zombies on campus. For those who choose not to participate, it is still amusing to see the other students chasing each other around campus with socks and Nerf guns.

    Oklahoma State is an incredible university. Even though it is a large, state school, it feels way more personal than I ever expected. Professors care about you as an individual and most will learn your name and try to get to know you. There are so many diverse opportunities to take advantage of and ways to get involved on campus. The cost may seem high, but the school offers so much to the students, it is worth it. In addition, many scholarships and chances for financial aid assistance are offered so much of the cost can be covered. OSU is definitely worth the cost of attendance.

    What to do for fun

    OSU football games are a blast. The environment has so much energy and enthusiasm for the Cowboys, even if we lose, the energy in the stadium is incomparable. Student Life is always putting on events, hosting movie nights, dances, and speakers. RecLife has plenty of intramural and club sports to get involved in, too. Even if you are not into sports, it is fun to cheer on your friends!

    Food and Dining

    Though there isn't a traditional cafeteria, OSU has many options throughout campus. No matter where you are living, there is somewhere nearby you will be able to eat. There are plenty of diverse food options, too. From pizza, burgers, and chicken to sandwiches and international cuisine.

    Dorm Life

    OSU offers lots of options for living - traditional, apartment-style, single, double, or more. Most underclassmen and some upperclassmen live on campus, so there is always a diverse group of people around. There is always something going on in the Residence Hall Association to encourage community in the dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    There is a wide variety of classes and difficulties so you can find what you are looking for. Most professors are happy to see you in their office hours and encourage taking advantage of the time you can to see them and ask for clarification or help. There are so many options for getting help elsewhere, too. The tutoring center can help with any class you take.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get in contact with your adviser and make sure they know who you are. They are more helpful when they know what you are really like and what you are looking for. Do not be afraid to ask questions, the staff and other students are more than happy to help, everyone here wants you to be successful!

    In three sentences

    OSU has a welcoming environment, friendly students, and helpful staff. It is a great place to get an education, plan for the future, and make lifelong friends. No matter what you are planning to study, even if you do not know yet, you are bound to have a great time learning, relaxing, and socializing here.

    Don't get me started all the food is fantastic. There are many different choices between food. There are many different dining area to appeal to certain students.

    Dorm Life

    I personally enjoy the dorm life. You are in the middle where everything fun happens. Oklahoma State offers many different housing options. Overall I would choose the dorm life opposed to living off campus.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes can be very intense depending on certain courses. Of course some are easier than others but in the end it all depends on how devoted you are to studying.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure to keep up with your studies ,but have fun also. Oklahoma State offers a lot if fun opportunities for students to interact with the college. Try the dorm life at least for one year; I promise it will totally be worth it.

    Campus Safety

    I always feel safe walking around campus, even at 2AM. Never experienced any problems.

    Greek Life

    Greek life somewhat dominates the campus, naturally. Stillwater is a traditional styled college town so a strong Greek life is to be expected.

    Clubs and Activities

    Intramural sports, student organizations, and other clubs.

    Great for these types of students

    Engineers, agricultural majors, business, etc.

    Bang for the buck

    Bright academics for inexpensive tuition and living costs - a great bargain.

    What to do for fun

    Stay social and attend date parties and Greek-related events. You need to go Greek at this school - seriously. It will keep you entertained, busy, and likely allow you to have a higher GPA than those who aren't Greek (it's a fact).

    Food and Dining

    Lots of food options on campus. Most food is bursar-able. Chick-fil-a in the student union is the best.

    Dorm Life

    Dorms are alright but a little random and can be boring at times. Surround yourself with great people and join a fraternity or sorority.

    Academic Rigor

    Academic Rigor depends on your major. Engineers spend more time studying than most. Political science majors - not so much.

    Tips for prospective students

    Go Greek and join a sorority or fraternity to make the most of your experience. You'll always stay busy that way. Make the most of your time because it's so limited and valuable. I'm already a sophomore/junior and time has gone by too fast already.

    if you are college sports fan you would be happy to know that Oklahoma state university is the cheapest school in the BIG 12.

    What to do for fun

    being that stillwater is such a small town, all of the hot spots are very close and sometimes in walking distance from campus. clubs, bars and for the more laid back kids volleyball courts in front of all dorms. this school is very spirited with pride so must of all we love going to support our fellow schoolmates at games.

    Food and Dining

    we have many of on campus restaurants that fit every one's needs. vegetarian place, burger shops, delis, and even BBQ in inconvenient spots around campus to keep life simple for stressed out college students. however if you are more of a do-it-yourself person there are grocery stores on campus to help you with you cooking needs.

    Dorm Life

    it honestly depends on the amount of money you are trying to spend because some dorms are very nice and up to date. others however are pain to live in i must say. traditional dormitories have communal bathrooms which sucks. these shared rooms can be rough at times but the bind you have with your roommate becomes unbreakable.

    Academic Rigor

    yes it is true these classes are at times difficult,but if we are not pushed to be the best we can be then we ill not strive for it. our professors are well read in the subject they are trained in, to prove their knowledge they try to make us as educated in the field as they are. so academically we will be ready for our real wold occupation, and accustomed to learning things the hard way.

    Tips for prospective students

    stay on campus your first year even if you are not a freshmen, it will help you bond with other students and keep you motivated to go to class. another thing is make sure you keep up with you id card because without it, there is not much on campus you will be able to do. most importantly however is to join groups even though they are time consuming being around other people that are striving for success only boosts your thirst for it.

    In three sentences

    it is really great school and that is coming from a somewhat pessimistic person. which it is very hard to be here with such a loving and friendly student body. if you're thinking of going out of state to a university this would be the right choice, you will feel at home rather quickly.

    Good food, sometimes a little pricy. Overall pretty decent.

    Great place to meet new friends your age that can get you into all sorts of different clubs and activities on campus.

    Awesome place to meet a lot of people just like you who are going into the same fields that can turn out to be great contacts in the future.

    Greek Life is one of the best parts about campus! They help get everyone involved and make homecoming the best in the nation!

    Clubs and Activities

    You can find out about all of the clubs and activities on campuslink.com or chalking along the sidewalks. The clubs are very fun and always have something going on.

    What to do for fun

    The Tumbleweed, sometimes called the Weed, is a great place to go dancing for those of you who are not 21. They always have great bands and if you love two-stepping this is just the place for you! If two-stepping is not your thing, the Weed offers another side, called The Other Side that is more of a ghetto, rap, grinding place.

    Food and Dining

    Since they opened the Student Union, there are so many options. Caribou is always a good place to get a cup of coffee on the way to class and the line for Chick fil a may seem long, but it moves rather quickly. There are also places scattered across campus that offer good food, however, it is not very nutritious.

    Dorm Life

    Depending on where you live, there is always a way to meet people. Drummond, aka Dirty D, is very convenient, especially when it is raining because it is so close to campus and there is food right downstairs. The apartments and suites allow you to have your own space, but do not have the luxury of being able to walk to class as quickly.

    Academic Rigor

    Some of the classes are very difficult and you will find yourself stressing the first day, but some of the classes are such a blow off course. Always check ratemyprofessor.com because those help a lot.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get involved!! This is the best way to meet people.

    Oklahoma State University is truly a school with enormous school spirit, game days will change your life. The atmosphere is amazing and everyone is so friendly. More than likely, the friends you meet will continue to be in your life after college.

    Students with an interest in engineering, agriculture, natural sciences, and veterinary medicine, given OSU's beginnings as a land grant Agricultural & Mechanical college. There is a bit of diversity though, with excellent law and geology programs as well.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Burn Your Ex Day - On Valentine's Day, a bonfire is held on one of the lawns and people are invited to burn pictures of their ex-boyfriend/girlfriends, meet new people, and roast hotdogs and marshmallows. Hilarious and sounds like a lot of fun.

    A large variety, all of which may be paid with through cash/card or your meal plan.

    The dorms are a bit small, but with everything there is to do on campus you shouldn't be spending too much time in there, anyway.

    Campus Safety

    Various areas on campus have a blue booth that directs you to the Campus police by a push of a button. I go out alone a lot and never feel threatened- it is important you do not appear vulnerable though.

    What to do for fun

    I will strongly suggest going to the Colvin Center and find activities to do there if you're into sports and other exercises. It is much easier to find and make friends there because you all have something in common. If you're a nerd that cannot find it in you to exercise, then I suggest going around campus and find flyers for different events- they are many that are into zombie related themes.

    Food and Dining

    The average score is towards Bennett's dining hall. They do not open during the weekends and sometimes mistake your orders. However, everywhere else on campus the dining is great and opens much later.

    Dorm Life

    I am currently residing in the East side of Bennett. If you can, avoid this suite- if you were to choose Bennett, make sure it is on the WEST side. The east side's elevator is in poor condition and constantly breaks down.

    Academic Rigor

    General education classes are generally not that strict during your freshman year. However, obviously as you continue to go up the upper division levels you will find the courses more difficult. Since I am in the arts, it is not so bad- but from other people who are engineering majors, it can be pretty tough.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are wanting to attend OSU, make sure you talk with your adviser to utilize all the free programs offered by OSU. Also, as a freshman, you will be tempted to do other activities and not study. Do not do that or you will find yourself regretting that mistake. I have several friends who are older than me who have regretted their mistakes during freshman year.

    In three sentences

    Not only is this school relatively affordable, it also provides a quality education- especially in the field of the arts (in my opinion). Also, OSU is a big campus with countless amounts of activities to do with other people. Add these two pluses together and you get a satisfying college life.

    You get what you pay for. Yes, it's expensive but you get an awesome gym open to students until pretty late, the library access is awesome (free printing and computer use), free transit services, and all kinds of perks that come with tuition.

    What to do for fun

    There are lots of clubs to join! From intramural sports to cultural clubs to LGBT community and to anime clubs. There's something for everyone.

    Food and Dining

    There's a pretty nice variety of restaurants on campus; however, most of them close at really inconvenient hours.

    Dorm Life

    Most of the dorms are pretty nice; others, however are pretty run down. I know kerr-drummond are in need of some serious re-upholstering and new elevators.

    Academic Rigor

    The academic challenges that I've faced so far are the deadlines. Most teachers set hard deadlines, which means that there's no use in trying to persuade your teacher to accept a late assignment.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you know your schedule by heart, it's easy to forget where you're going and to get a little lost on such a big campus. Going to class is also really important. It seems like an obvious thing to say, but it's so easy to just keep sleeping especially after pulling an all-nighter.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    One of my favorite traditions at Oklahoma State is that every fall during football season they dye the fountain in front of the library orange. Also there is a HUGE grassy area in front of the library cleverly named Library Lawn, where students go to study, play football (frisbee, etc.) and even dogs are welcome.

    Bang for the buck

    Paying for out of state tuition, I expected there to be more things to offer for students. Considering the amount of money I pay, I feel their should be more on campus dinning options or possibly places off campus that accept the meal plan. I feel that the gym and wellness center are amazing and you can find a variety of sand volleyball courts and outdoor basketball courts all over campus.

    What to do for fun

    Like in any college town we all find our ways to have fun. But a few places to try is Tumbleweed, for those 18 and over, and The Strip, for those 21 and over. Other than that there are many golf courses, parks and lakes for students to enjoy.

    Food and Dining

    There are some great places to eat on campus but not as many as they advertise. The food gets boring after one semester because of the lack of dinning options.

    Dorm Life

    I have never lived in the dorms but this is how many of my friends have met alot of their current friends. This is a great way to meet people and get involved in campus life.

    Academic Rigor

    Some classes were difficult. Others were rather easy. It all depends on the professor and the level you are learning at.

    Tips for prospective students

    Read the sidewalk chalk announcements. Join clubs and don't be afraid to ask questions. The more you are involved the more friends you will make, which will make your time at Oklahoma State even more memorable.

    In three sentences

    The campus is beautiful and school spirit is amazing. I can sum up how much I love this school in four words: You Only Live Orange.

    Campus Safety

    I always feel safe on campus!! If you stay late at the library all you have to do is hit the red button on the emergency caller and the security guard will walk you back to your room or car.

    Clubs and Activities

    When I visited, there were tons of clubs outside the library telling you about information about their groups. I'm an animal science major and there are tons of clubs and activities you can join. We are just one big family!

    Bang for the buck

    Spend time with friends by cooking out, playing washers, and just relaxing. We sometimes like to go dancing and just cut loose.

    OSU police share jurisdiction with Stillwater police so real officers are on campus at all times. The emergency light system also allows students to feel safer when walking alone. OSU is also implementing a new system fall 2013 that has OSU students work in an escort program. If you don't feel safe walking home at night you can call them and they'll send someone to pick you up at your class and walk you back to your dorm.

    What to do for fun

    Less than a mile from the school is the strip. The strip has bars, restaurants, shopping and fun things to do. On campus the Colvin Recreation center offers several fun activities including rock climbing and ping pong.

    Food and Dining

    There are several different options for food and dining both on and around campus. You never run out of delicious options.

    Some dorms are better than others. If you end up in a traditional dorm with less commodities be prepared to make special considerations for the shower and rooms.

    The classes are challenging but because of the academic advisors that help you make decisions you never get placed in a class you can't handle.

    Campus Safety

    Oklahoma State has the reputation of being one of the safest campuses in the Big XII Conference. The campus police also have the support of the Stillwater Police Department as well as the police force of surrounding communities. The officers patrol by vehicle, on foot, and on bicycles 24 hours a day. Safety is one of Oklahoma States top priorities for their students.

    Greek Life

    The OSU campus offers fraternities and sororities that were created one hundred years ago. Greek life encourages leadership through academics and volunteering in the community.

    Clubs and Activities

    The university offers over 400 clubs for its students. There are so many opportunities to get involved and develop a sense of community on campus. The student organizations on campus provide outlets to volunteer and develop the leadership skills necessary to function before and after graduation

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Oklahoma State takes pride in their Cowboys. Fall in Oklahoma means football and tailgating. Any student will tell you that it only takes attending one Cowboy football game in Stillwater to make you a fan for life.

    Bang for the buck

    Oklahoma State University's tuition is competitive with other Universities in the state. As a freshman living on campus the student is required to carry a meal plan. Although there are different levels for the meal plan it was difficult analyzing which plan I would need. I had money on my account at the end of the semester that would not carry over to the next, and found myself spending the money on items that I would not have purchased under other circumstances. As with the majority of Universities, the extra fees really add up. Oklahoma State has not increased its tuition in the past few years keeping their tuition rates reasonable.

    What to do for fun

    There are always activities on campus that appeal to the interests of the diverse student body at Oklahoma State. The University has beautiful ponds and trails for a relaxing weekend after classes as well as destination eateries like Eskimo Joes which is a must if you are in Stillwater, OK. The campus also offers The Colvin Center which is a state of the art fitness facility.

    Food and Dining

    The choices are endless when it comes to what the University has to offer in eateries. Oklahoma State knows that their students are on the go and need places to eat great meals while they are away from home. The restaurants adapt to the busy student by allowing eateries where we can quietly work on assignments or catch up with other students throughout the day.

    Dorm Life

    As a freshman at Oklahoma State, first year students are required to live on campus. The dorm I was able to live in for my first year had been updated in the past 2 years and had great amenities for living away from home. Bennett Hall has the luxury of a convenience store as well as a full service restaurant available to its students. Each dorm offers activities to keep their community involved and develop friendships that will carry on long after graduation.

    Academic Rigor

    The academics at Oklahoma State University are extensive. The professors are extremely helpful and want their students to succeed. Through in-class lectures and online assistance at any hour, I know I will graduate from the University with the knowledge I will need to be successful in the workforce.

    Tips for prospective students

    Students should begin preparing their Freshman Year of HIgh School by choosing classes that will prepare them for college academics. Many high schools offer honors classes that teach their students how to self-study for exams and daily assignments. The classes give you the edge to succeed in college classes by holding the students more accountable for their assignments in regular high school classes. I also recommend taking the ACT test as often as possible to practice test taking skills as well as increase your score to obtain the college acceptance and scholarship letters you are waiting for. Involvement in college campus activities is vital to developing a support network while away at school.

    In three sentences

    Oklahoma State University offers over 200 undergraduate majors with a faculty that wants their students to succeed. The campus promotes student involvement which involves the students, staff, and the community of Stillwater; building leadership and service that benefit campus life. Through the university's new student orientations, I was able to connect with other freshman and make the transition from living at home to living in a dorm easier.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Homecoming is phenomenal and that weekend convinced me to stay at OSU rather than join the Marine Corps.

    What to do for fun

    There are plenty of ways to get involved on campus life. There are also plenty of clubs for almost every interest. Though I do wish that this University would have a Club Fair so students have an opportunity to see what clubs are available. There are lots of sports gatherings and a large amount of the students are apart of Greek life. There is always something to do, and something to be apart of at OSU.

    Tips for prospective students

    During your freshman year, you should live in the traditional dorms. This will give you a wonderful opportunity to meet new people and quickly become involved in campus life. Also, meet with your professor within a couple weeks of your first class. Introduce yourself to him/her and your TA. Keeping lines of communication open with your professor and TA can help your grade tremendously. Set aside time each night to study or just go over notes.

    In three sentences

    A student favorite is the water fountain on library lawn. During homecoming, the water is dyed a bright orange and can be see from all across campus.

    What to do for fun

    There is always a fun activity going on on campus. In addition, there are intramural sports and a wonderful athletic center with everything you could ever need including pools and rock climbing. Off campus, Stillwater has a number of great bars, dance halls, restaurants, golf courses, lakes, a movie theater, and a bowling alley.

    Food and Dining

    OSU has numerous dining options on campus. Not only is the food great with some favorites such as Chick-fil-A and Which-Wich, but all food can be paid for with your school meal plan.

    Dorm Life

    I have only ever lived in the villages at OSU. However, I was able to live with a large group of people with my same interests and motivations. The dorms are nice and the people you meet are even better.

    Academic Rigor

    Many of the general education classes are quite challenging. Nobody ever said college would be easy. You really have to buckle down and get through the tough stuff in order to make it to the major related courses that you will enjoy.

    Tips for prospective students

    Live on campus your freshman year. You get the very most out of all of the activities if you are in the middle of it all. And try everything! There is so much to do and you never know where you will meet lifelong friends.

    In three sentences

    Oklahoma State is a beautiful campus located in a wonderful town.

    Greek Life

    If you are in any way interested in Greek Life at OSU, learn more about Greek Discovery Day, which is in the middle of the spring semester. You can find out all the information on OSU's website. This event gets your names out to all of the fraternities and sororities and from there they will contact you or let you know what your next step is in becoming a part of the Greek system. Being in a fraternity was one of the best decisions I have made so far. I have made lifelong friends, learned how to become a better man, and learned how to excel in my studies.

    What to do for fun

    As I said above, there are endless opportunities offered at OSU, it is just up to you to find any way you can to get involved and get your name out there. The football games are extremely fun and a must for freshmen to attend!

    Food and Dining

    Had my meals at the fraternity house. Occasionally ate in the student union, very good food there!

    Dorm Life

    I have never live in the dorms, I lived in my fraternity house for these past 2 years.

    Academic Rigor

    Being an engineering student, I have gone through many, many tough classes so far. It is up to you to get your work done and to learn the material. Whatever you put into it is what you will get out of it (and how good your grades will be!). The classes are hard, but don't overestimate it. I am somewhat biased in this category because I take some of the hardest classes at the university. The one thing you new to do is to find something you enjoy studying, stick with it, and learn it as best as you can.

    Tips for prospective students

    It is very helpful to go to Camp Cowboy, be active during orientation, and participate in welcome week so that you have to best chances of meeting as many people as you can. The more people you meet, the more opportunities open up! Don't have too much fun when you first start your college career, because if you do, it will come back to bite you real soon. It is very important to learn how to study in college and get your studies under control before you start having your share of fun.

    In three sentences

    Stillwater is an amazing college town to live in, the people are friendly, it is easy to get around, and there are endless opportunities available.

OSU has given me a great education and college experience so far during the past 2 years!

    Greek Life

    I have several friends who attend OSU with me and they joined the Greek life. They met a lot of new friends and enjoy their lives; however they all gossip about one another because they rushed a different sorority house and the houses do not like each other because of something that happened forever ago. Sounds a lot like high school... I am glad I did not rush here at Oklahoma State University.

    Clubs and Activities

    Join a club it is great on your resume.

    What to do for fun

    I get together with friends when I want to be around people and when it has been a long day, a movie and bed will be your best friend. Every day is challenging in a way so it is best to not become a hermit crab and lock yourself away. When you think you�������¢����������������re tired, sometimes the best thing is to go out with friends!

    Food and Dining

    EXPENSIVE but pretty tasty. Freshmen are required to have a meal plan, and now that I do not have one I can actually eat off campus if I want to, but most imporantly I can eat cheap.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life in Dennett hall was okay. The rooms are small and there is no privacy. make friends with your neighbors instead of being akward when you see then walk down the hall.

    Academic Rigor

    I hold a 15-20 hour job during the school year and that takes away a lot of personal time making my school work the main focus of my life. I do a pretty good job balancing school work with my job, making dinner, working out, and having a small social live, but I get pretty stressed out. The majority of my social life is studying with friends while we order pizza, then coffee later to keep the study group alive.

    Tips for prospective students

    For students who are planning on attending OSU, please remember to not be shy because the majority of the students attending this college are new and need friends. Read your instructors syllabus because it does have the answers to your course, and if you have looked it over many times and still cannot find your answer then email your instructor and BE PROFESSIONAL. Oh and heads up, when you introduce yourself offer your hand and look the person in the eyes when they say their name and when you say yours, then write their name down before you forget with a little reminder of who they are.

    In three sentences

    Oklahoma State University is a large campus with a large variety of people and this came make socializing really easy or hard depending on your personality. Classes are less interactive between students and the instructors, so if you need help you have to be the once to seek the knowledge from any sources (students, possible teacher assistance, and most importantly your instructor). I have been able to find friends in each of my courses to study with and share the stress of the course, but I have noticed a lot of people have expressed their feelings of be lonely and not happy here at this college.

    What to do for fun

    Stillwater offers some fun for students. There are sports, there are bars near campus if you're of age and there are lakes nearby for fishing.

    Food and Dining

    The union offers many places to eat while your in school. During lunch time, the lines get really long though and if you only have a small window before classes, your best bet is to grab a snack from the mini mart. Since it is on campus, of course it is over priced.

    Dorm Life

    I don't live in a dorm, so I don't have much to say about it. They do have family housing really close to campus though, that is very convenient for students with husbands, wives or kids.

    Academic Rigor

    Plagiarism is not accepted or tolerated. The tests are well supervised to avoid cheating, at least it was in all of my classrooms. Being a transfer student from the University of Arizona, I would say that the classes at OSU seem to be a little easier. I don't know if that is because of the teaching methods or standards, but I'm not complaining.

    Tips for prospective students

    It always helps to tour campus before class starts. Don't make a last minute decision about registering for school because classes fill up pretty quick. If you know you want to attend this university apply and get registered several months before your semester starts.

    The campus is very easy to navigate, I didn't have a very hard time finding classrooms on my first day even though I had never been on campus before.

    Campus Safety

    I've never felt unsafe walking around at any hour. I have gone for midnight walks around campus and never had a problem. There are blue emergency lights around campus and the campus police is generally very nice and helpful unless you are causing a problem.

    Bang for the buck

    It seems a little pricey because they add so many fees onto your bill for every little thing.

    What to do for fun

    There are all kinds of clubs and events on campus. Usually if you walk by library lawn there is something fun going on. As for Stillwater there isn't a whole lot to do but I can usually find something.

    Food and Dining

    There are so many different restaurants on campus that there is something for everyone. The only problem I have is that the prices are kinda high, but most students don't worry about that because it's the parents paying.

    Dorm Life

    I had a great time in the dorms. My first year I was in Wentz and I met so many great people and fun in the dorms. They have all kinds of dorms for different people. There are traditional ones for outgoing people and suites for people who want it more quiet.

    Academic Rigor

    I've loved almost all of my classes and professors since I have started. Most of the classes aren't too hard and not too easy. I

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you keep up with the emails they send you and you will have a much better time if you involve yourself with things going on around campus.

    Campus Safety

    Campus police are usually always around and do everything they can to prevent accidents from happening.

    What to do for fun

    Stillwater has plenty of events, especially during the school year! I recommend joining an organization or club, having a hobby, or just simply enjoying hanging out with friends.

    Food and Dining

    There are plenty of restaurants in Stillwater, mainly all having delicious food and very clean. Eating out and on campus can get pricing though!

    Dorm Life

    I was a transfer student to Oklahoma State University and I have never personally lived in a dorm; however, I have had several roommates living in this college town. Respect will get you further than anything else will! I do have a few friends who have lived in the dorms and really enjoyed them, they were able to meet new people, make new friends, and be close to campus.

    Academic Rigor

    Oklahoma State University loves succeeding students; therefore, keeping your grades up are a must! Professors are beyond willing to help students with school work, questions, or any concerns a student may have with their classes. The University pays close attention to GPA's and will put forth their best efforts to help you succeed.

    Tips for prospective students

    First, always stay focused on your school work and put school first. Second, get to know your professors and let them know if you are struggling in any way, they will help you beyond what you would expect. Third, make friends with classmates and try to find a study buddy for each class to help you stay focused. Last, but not least, in big universities sit at the front of the class room, there will be less distractions, and take advantage of any and all tutoring services offered.

    As an Animal Science Production major, Oklahoma State University feels like home.

    Campus Safety

    There's too many different police trolling around, lots of drunk rednecks causing a ruckus, and people get raped now and then in dark parking lots, but they say it's a really safe campus.

    Greek Life

    Might not be for everyone, but you will have a lot more fun and a much better social life if you go Greek. At least give it a try and stick with it freshman year. If you don't stay with it 4 years no big deal, at least you've hopefully met a lot of people and can just go to the bars when you're an upperclassman. There is a huge Greek scene here and you will definitely miss out on a lot of what makes this place somewhat fun if you're a geed.

    What to do for fun

    Drink, play around at the rec center and try some intramural sports, go to the occasional concert, explore the area parks and trails, go on trips organized by the outdoor adventure program, travel to locations more interesting than Stillwater, visit home when there's nothing else to do, drink some more.

    Food and Dining

    This has improved in the past few years with the renovated student union, but availability hours can be lacking and some places food is not too great. There is a decent variety to be found though. Much of it is overpriced and made by international students who don't speak much American. Food is much better just off campus.

    Dorm Life

    I can't really speak firsthand about this, but from all I've heard it's pretty lame. There are some really nice living conditions if you can throw down a little more cash, but the traditional dorms are fairly run down.

    Academic Rigor

    It's no Ivy Leaguer, but you can find plenty of insanely difficult courses. Plenty of easy ones as well.

    Tips for prospective students

    It's no big deal to get accepted here. Go Greek. We have a top of the line fitness and rec center, take advantage of it and don't get fat. There's a dominant culture of being country and liking red dirt music, so if you can't stand that stuff, I'd go somewhere else. If you can't understand your foreign professor, drop that class.

    In three sentences

    One of the three universities really worth going to in this state. A handful of areas of study that are among the best in the nation and really draw people from far away. In state tuition is a bargain, and out of state students typically get killer scholarships.

    Food and Dining

    We offer many different food options and choices all over campus. From chains like Chick-Fil-A to Jonny Rockets, to our own resturants like Retro Burger and Passport.

    Dorm Life

    We prefer to call them residence halls. The difference between dorms and residence halls is the sense of community, and OSU is all about community in our live options. The RA's are great and very involved and OSU has other on campus organizations to promote this as well.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are engaging and fun. Teachers from around the world come here and teach on many different subject matter. The class sizes are not crazy, I myself have never had a class of more than 100 people.

    Tips for prospective students

    1. Make sure you walk around the campus and see all of the beautiful buildings and places of interest, like the library or Theta Pond. 2. The fountain in front of the library is orange a lot of the time, so cool. 3. Make sure you go to a home football game, it's a true Cowboy experience.

    Campus Safety

    With emergency contact areas every 200 feet or so, safety is a prime concern here. There have been a few instances since I've been here of some theft/robbery, but they are focused on rectifying these small issues in campus safety.

    Greek Life

    Couldn't say anything about this myself. It seems to me that everyone who does join a Fraternity/Sorority has a very strong connection with them, and they claim that it is definitely a good experience.

    Clubs and Activities

    A great many different clubs will host events, often non-exclusive ones, to students around campus. I also enjoy their marketing tactic of writing on the walkways in chalk. Very popular until the rainy season.

    Great for these types of students

    Being an Art Major, I thought this place wouldn't really cater to my needs as well as your Engineering Majors or Agriculture Majors, but I was happily incorrect. It seems that this place focuses on all areas of studies, and everyone has an equal opportunity to pursue their goals.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There are many different things happening around Stillwater, so the campus often plays host to many of these events. I've seen some live action role play. I've seen grill-outs. I've seen campus-wide games of tag. People here seem to have a lot of fun when organizing these kind of odd events.

    Bang for the buck

    You have a great deal of resources here to help you out with your academics. I, being a resourceful student myself, find that a lot of them are unnecessary, so I wasn't too happy with paying for them with the fees (which may knock you down a bit, if you're pressed for cash). However, the college is very prestigious, so it is worth the investment.

    What to do for fun

    There's a great deal of things to do for fun around here. From the various clubs and groups that seem to cover every odd interest, to the group sporting events and a great deal of different drives. The campus is always hosting some kind of event, it seems. I've heard of a Zombie game coming up, which I, for one, am very excited for.

    Food and Dining

    The food here is alright, but I always find myself preferring to get my own groceries. It's a cheaper, more personalized option. However, for those who want some quick food, the Student Union has a host of restaurants to cater to your needs.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is alright. Considering what you can pay for it, it's can be a great experience, or a very different one. But you do get what you put into it, so people who find themselves more introverted aren't required to socialize, but those more extroverted chaps will probably make a great deal of new relationships.

    Academic Rigor

    As I've said, this place is very good for motivating its students to succeed in their academics. The professors are well trained, the students are determined. A great deal of the budget goes to making sure that all areas of study are up to par, and it shows.

    Tips for prospective students

    Come visit the campus if you are truly on the fence about this place. The town itself is small, but a lot of the activities are focused on campus, and there's scarcely a day that something is not happening.

    In three sentences

    The campus itself is grand in size, with some fantastic architecture that shows a true passion for education. From my experience, everyone here is very friendly and willing to include anyone in their various activities. It's definitely a change of pace for me, but I would highly recommend this college if you are looking for a positive environment focused on motivating its students to succeed.

    Campus Safety

    The campus cops are actually really cool. As long as your respectful. As for saftey they try to be there as fast as possible, they constantly patroll the campus especially at night. And there are these blue lights. If your out and someone attacks you, you can run to them and press a button and it automatically calls the police and they can hear everything, and most are by buildings and active places.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are so many clubs I can't even count! I myself am part of at least half a dozen. All the way from ones for your department to things like TWLOHA and SODA.

    Great for these types of students

    Its great for students who are really friendly and want to learn. I was always the odd ball growing up, and then I came here and I feal like I finally found my place.

    What to do for fun

    The campus is always a buzz with something! There are games, at the begining of the year theres this big dance party on the library lawn. There are cultural fairs, the Theatre department always has a play going. If you want to leave campus there is a movie house, bowling ally, and the Tumblweed for dancing.

    Food and Dining

    Like all schools the food can be a challenge, but OSU has such a diverse selection. They also offer so many healthy choces, and most of it's locally grown.

    Dorm Life

    The dorms are great. Most are fully up to date, and I haven't had an RA I didn't like and wasnt willing to help me out.

    Academic Rigor

    Several of my classes are challenging, which is good for me because I get so bored so easily.

    Tips for prospective students

    Don't be affraid to take advantage of all the offers the campus has. Talk to your professors, they don't bite I swear; and thers always help if you need it.

But there is also places off campus like many restaurants, a movie theater, bowling, golf, and a the Tumbleweed, our local Club.

    There is a large variety from chifila to pizza to BBQ to the on campus five star restaurant. It has something for all cravings.

    Each dorm has a comfortable community feel to it and accommodation can be accessible. There may be some minor flaws when it comes to utilities but they always have staff on hand to fix them.

    Academic Rigor

    The school is always providing financial aid for academic accomplishments. Each school has its own specific accomplishments and honors in many fields. There is a staff that helps lay down a path for a student to follow for their career goals.

    The student section is amazing in football and basketball games!!! OSU also has the biggest homecoming celebration in the nation.

    What to do for fun

    The amount of parties are insane, but if you're not into that Oklahoma State University has the biggest Union in the nation. Their recreational center is no joke either, it is state of the art. It has everything ranging from basketball courts to the indoor pool. There are numerous machines to work out on and tennis courts outside the Colvin (The recreational center). There is also clubs for pretty much every hobby out there.

    Food and Dining

    Food is great, but you will slowly get sick of everything close to you. There are a couple of places that I still really like though: west side cafe, barbecue at Wentz, and Service Station.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life takes some getting used to but can be fun. You will never have any privacy and chances are you will not be best friends with your roommate, but you will meet some amazing people and know what is going on around the campus. At first I was really annoyed with the ignorance of some of the guys that lived there. I mean there was hair every where, from God knows where, and they would not even bother cleaning up after themselves. I think dorm life is a good experience for any freshman, it will teach you how to live and deal with others.

    Academic Rigor

    I can't speak for other students and their majors. Well I can speak for business majors, they will have the time of their lives in college and have a high GPA, but chances are they will have difficulty finding a job. I'm an engineering major and also a freshman, but in sophomore level classes due to the college credit I got in high school. From my own personal experience, so far the courses have been brutal! High school does not mean squat, in my physics class you have to teach yourself everything, and from what I hear the professors do not get much better. In college you have to actually study; back in high school I put in zero effort, my only goal was to get A's. Coming to college I struggled the first couple months because I did not put in the time and I did not know how to study. Nothing good in life comes without work, is something I have learned over this first semester. Sacrifices must be made whether you like it or not. Classes will not be easy, but you have been blessed with the opportunity to make something out of yourselves and I say take advantage of the opportunities given to you.

    Tips for prospective students

    Stay focused, especially if you are an engineering major, do not get caught up in the noise of everything around you. Make time for yourself to relax and take it easy for an hour or two but always stay busy. For an engineering student you will probably only have one day to yourself and you will lose sleep, but keep at it the payoff is more than worth it. Manage your time well and do not stay in your dorm for 12 hours. This is nothing like high school your mom and dad will not be here to hold your hand or keep you on top of things. Only you can make your own success.

    In three sentences

    Oklahoma State University is a wonderful university that has much to offer and great core values. OSU offers a great college experience along with a good education! The university is one with great tradition and is made up of a diverse student body and staff.

Football is a big part of our school, so don't miss out going to football game!

    There are many things to do for fun like going out to all the different restaurants like the famous Eskimo Joe's. If you like the night life there is a dance hall called the Tumbleweed and also a strip with bars that have performers there constantly. There are lakes surrounding Stillwater that you could go to for relaxing or to fish. There are a bunch of shops for all those people who love to shop. No matter what you like to do there is an activity that will be fun for you.

    Tips for prospective students

    Tips for prospective students are to get involved. It will help meet friends and know about all the activities going on at the school. Another thing is to stay organized with assignments and keeping a planner so you know when test and important dates are. The best thing you can do is to get involved, stay on top of things, get to know your teachers and take advantage of all the opportunities offered to you.

    OSU has America's Greatest Homecoming which is absolutely amazing and extremely hard to know just how great it is unless you attend.

    Bang for the buck

    Under President Burns Hargis, OSU has really pushed becoming significantly better every year. I can see only bright things on OSU's horizon. One great example is the renovation of the student union that happened about a year ago and was given the title of America's best college student union

    What to do for fun

    Just like many other towns that depends on what type of person you are. There is plenty of bars as well as one 18+ bar. There is a movie theater and plenty of on campus activities.

    Food and Dining

    The food isn't the best I have ever had and sometimes it is expensive, but not any more than the rest of the prices around any college town. The great part of OSU is that you have a pretty good selection available to you.

    Dorm Life

    I have lived in the dorms all four years and have loved every minute of it. OSU has plans of building more dorms and fixing current problems so it will only get better

    Academic Rigor

    This is up to you. How you manage your time will determine how hard your classes are. Professors for the most part understand that college is more than a study period and will offer much help to you. Take advantage of this and all the tutors available at you reach

    Tips for prospective students

    Get involved fast. Don't use any excuse like I'm just going to get my feet wet in classes before I get involved on campus. There are 400+ groups on campus and a Greek Life that is a huge participant in America's Greatest Homecoming every year. If you make excuses to not get involved in groups your first semester you will make them for the rest of your college career.

    OSU is the best thing to have happened to me. With over 400 on campus groups, there is always somewhere you can fit in. There is nothing like the experience you will have at Oklahoma State.

    Campus Safety

    There are emergency buttons everywhere you turn so if you need help from campus police it is basically right in your reach. Campus Safety seems to be OSU's number one priority as there is a patrol car on nearly every block whenever I walk by it.

    Greek Life

    The Greek Life at OSU is extraordinary. At homecoming the Greeks put on magnificent displays of school spirit throughout the entire week and then put on a glorious parade to welcome home all the alumni.

    Clubs and Activities

    OSU has a ton of different clubs ranging from Student Hall government to the Quiddich club. Diversity is a very big thing at OSU and if you have a certain interest in something, there is a club for you at OSU.

    Great for these types of students

    OSU is great for students who are looking for a hands-on college that will help you to bring the best out of yourself. It is very good with helping you develop study and work habits that will benefit you for the rest of your life.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Apart from having the biggest homecoming celebration in the nation, OSU has some great traditions like Orange Friday where everyone dresses in their favorite orange outfits, the fountain of orange which is a beautiful fountain in front of the campus library that is colored orange, and a beautiful pond that is decorated with a magnificent shrubbery of boots.

    Bang for the buck

    Due to a lot of great restaurants being on-campus you can save money on gas and use a good amount of your meal-plan at the same time. There are several great on-campus options for grocery shopping as well, making it even easier to save money on the rising gas prices of today.

    What to do for fun

    Whatever you want to do for fun, Oklahoma State University has it. Whether its go to the lake for the weekend, play football with some of your buddies, hit up the activity center for a good sweat, or even play video games with a great group of people.

    Food and Dining

    The food and dining at Oklahoma State is superb! I enjoy being able to select from several of my favorite restaurants like Chick-fil-a, Johnny Rockets, Which wich, etc. without having to leave the campus like I would have to at just about any other campus.

    Dorm Life

    My dorm life experiences at Oklahoma State University have been great! My dorm-mates have been awesome and my RA has been nothing but extraordinary.

    Academic Rigor

    Oklahoma State is pretty challenging academically, but if you can stay on task and get all your work done before you play you will be just fine! The professors do a good job at not over-working you here, but at the same time expecting your best work each and every assignment.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are looking to come to Oklahoma State, I would definitely advise you to come and check out the campus for yourself first, as well as making sure it has the right major options for you. The facilities are great, the staff is wonderful, and the fellow college students are very friendly.

    In three sentences

    Oklahoma State University has a very beautiful campus with absolutely amazing staff. They are very helping with the huge transition from being a small town high school kid into becoming a busy body college student. Overall my experiences with Oklahoma State University have been nothing but amazing.

    What to do for fun

    I spend most of my time evolved in 4H activities.

    Food and Dining

    I make my own food. But food on campus can get pricey, so if you can pack a lunch.

    Dorm Life

    I live in the family graduate housing. It's quiet and nice. A lot of the freshmen like the dorms, it is mandatory for all freshmen to live on campus.

    Academic Rigor

    My classes are not to hard, but I do have to study. Make sure you allow yourself time. If you don't understand something, go to your teachers office hours. There here for you! Use them.

    Tips for prospective students

    You need to enroll as early as you can. If your a transfer student, like me, make sure you know what aid and scholarships are available to you. Dont assume anything. If your a freshmen, make sure you start taking the right classes in High School, and know what you want to do; start reaching that goal as soon as you can. Learn good study habits now! You will have to study to pass.

    In three sentences

    Oklahoma state is one of the best, down to earth school I have ever been to. I am a single parent and all of my professors are very open minded and sensitive to this fact. If your looking for a school that has endless opportunities, a strong family support center and professors that take the time to get to know you and your situation; then Oklahoma State is the school for you!

    Campus Safety

    I've never felt more safe away from home then I do here on campus. There's safety locations every half block or so sprinkled literally all over campus.

    Greek Life

    Our Greek life is great! There is so much spirit there and they are not separate from the non-Greek community.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is SOOO much to do on campus it would probably be impossible to try everything in 4 years.

    Great for these types of students

    Our school is great for all types of students. Big, small, smart, average, sporty, quiet, musical, and nerdy!

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    All of the football chants and songs are great traditions as well as during homecoming week they dye the fountain orange! Every day at noon the clock tower plays the alma mater.

    Bang for the buck

    Although OSU is a bit pricy for an out of state student it is manageable with some hard work towards scholarships, financial aid, and some payment option plans. Don't let money be an option to come pursue your education at OSU.

    What to do for fun

    There's dancing, clubs, gyms, shopping, movies, and so much more!

    Food and Dining

    Love all the dining on campus. The wide variety of options to eat let any and all students find just what they want.

    Dorm Life

    I'm a returning student and chose to live in the dorms a second year. If that doesn't say something about our dorm life, what does? I enjoy the community feel and it makes things feel like they function a bit better with safe big family to live with.

    Academic Rigor

    This schools academics are great! I love every professor I have whether they make the class easy or hard because they show how much they care about every single student. Going to office hours if you need help will always guarantee a more accomplished feel for the class as it makes things easier to pass once you get an understanding for college level courses.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you dive right in! Try out clubs, sports, classes, and weekend events! I was terrified to apply for colleges but when I came to tour OSU I truly felt like I was at home and that this was the campus for me. I haven't regretted the decision I made to choose this school and I promise you won't either.

    In three sentences

    Oklahoma State University is truly home to me. The school in its entirety makes every student feel at home and like a part of the cowboy family. I could not ask for a better school to call my own and would encourage any and all to come here.

    The police force is awesome here! They are willing to go above and beyond for most students if you are nice to them. They are willing to escort students home at night and make me feel extremely safe while on campus

    Great for these types of students

    This school doesn't really have a traditional type of student.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    There is the walk before every home football game where all the athletes and coaches walk to the stadium.

    Bang for the buck

    I suggest applying for as many scholarships as possible! Sites like Cappex are perfect for that! I think dorms and meal plans are overpriced, a reason I decided to live off campus but other than that everything is reasonably priced.

    What to do for fun

    OSU has quite a bit to do, however once again it is subjective. I do not live on campus therefore I spend little time on campus. However, I would suggest checking the colvin for intramural sports, they are a blast! Also, opt into communications emails and go by the Union daily there is always something going on!

    Food and Dining

    One thing that is nice about on campus is there is no tax, however options are somewhat limited. I have yet to try everything on campus, but from what I know many students eat at the same place day in and day out because of convenience.

    Dorm Life

    I do not live in the dorm, I have off campus housing but from what I know the dorms are not too bad, just rather expensive.

    Academic Rigor

    I feel like this is a personal basis question. Classes I find particularly easy and professor I do not find challenging, my friends struggle along with. However, I will comment that OSU will not make a class simply for it to be easy, they set out to challenge students and give them a better education.

    Tips for prospective students

    Get involved,get involved,get involved! College will be rather boring and you will not enjoy it if you just go to class and sit in your dorm. There are so many ways to get involved on campus, just simply look around campus. Often times as well you will get put on club lists because of your major, go to those as well just to see if you like it.

    In three sentences

    I am from Stillwater and deciding to attend Oklahoma State was a rather difficult choice. However, looking back I could imagine myself anywhere else. The people here are really friendly and it is a great campus

    What to do for fun

    What isn't fun here? There is always, and I mean always, something going on. This gives you more chances to meet friends and start making memories.

    Food and Dining

    There are a variety of choices here on campus and off. You can never have too much of one thing because you can just try a different place the next day.

    Dorm Life

    It is awesome! I have made so many friends and everyone is really nice. I would definitely suggest staying in a dorm for first year students!

    Academic Rigor

    There is always someone available for you. If you struggle in a subject, there are tutors. The professors have office hours available for the students to go in for a more detailed explanation of assignments. It may seem hard or overwhelming at first, but once you get settled, the work and college itself is very easy.

    Campus Safety

    O.S.U. has security alert poles all over campus that at a push of a button links you directly to the police and in a short matter of time they can be on location. Additionally, campus police keeps contact with students, sharing information regarding safety, events, and tips, as well as continually improving safety measures on campus. One of the safest college settings I have felt I have been in.

    Clubs and Activities

    There is a club for almost anything, you just have to look.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    O.S.U. has one of the largest academic libraries in the U.S. and one of the largest student unions.

    Bang for the buck

    Again, life on and in college is what you make it to be. If you have a desire to learn and a desire to socialize, you are very able to do that. O.S.U. isn't too expensive, and is a wonderful learning environment.

    What to do for fun

    There is numerous things to do for fun. There are constantly pick-up games of all sorts on library lawn and the intramural fields. There are regular activities and opportunities offered through different groups an clubs and if there isn't something offered that you'd like to be, you can usually get that going too. If there is something your wanting to do, you can probably find it. Plus, the Colvin Athletic Center has numerous things to do (Tennis courts, Raquetball courts, volleyball/basketball, indoor/outdoor swimming, weights, and an indoor rock-climbing wall)

    Food and Dining

    As a transfer student, I can say that the food is much better than other campuses. However, the food prices are not much better than if you were to just eat out a fast food restaurants all the time. There is a good variety of food, but limited dinner and weekend dining options.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is what you make of it. Many people are hermits, and keep to themselves. Others come and go and have little interaction. And then there are many living spaces that are open and social. You can chose any of these living styles for yourself, and be as active as you choose.

    Academic Rigor

    Not all classes are intimidating or hard. But some classes can be overwhelming. Your advisors are good at making a class schedule that can fit your abilities. Be careful not to bite off more than you can chew in one semester though.

    Tips for prospective students

    Research your degree field prior to visiting and prepare questions that relate specific to your needs. Visit the school, and make time to meet with an academic advisor in your prospective field, it will really help and make a difference. Come to your visit with an open mind and if you decide to come to O.S.U., come to class ready to learn.

    In three sentences

    Oklahoma State University- Stillwater is an absolutely beautiful campus. The food is not of awful quality, but not the highest rated either, or the cheapest. Overall, O.S.U. offers a welcoming environment and would be a great college for almost any student.

    Campus Safety

    The patrols of OSU's Police Department is impressive. Equipped with segway units as well as biking officers, the campus feels at all times safe. Lit telephone boxes throughout campus assist people in need of policemen for escorts or emergency situations.

    Clubs and Activities

    With associations for a wide-range of interests, OSU is sure to meet the demands of any attending student. Also, new clubs are encouraged with reasonable fees for starting up. Interest groups as well as national clubs are available and make a great addition to a résumé in the future.

    Great for these types of students

    Students looking for culture in a state that lacks exposure to foreign visitors will be most pleased to find people attending OSU from all over the globe. Also, students without motor vehicles will easily get around with a highly efficient bus system. The routes include on and off-campus sites to get people where they need to get.

    Bang for the buck

    The value is self-evident and the classes meet a frugal-minded person's expectations. Books are certainly high, but the bookstores on campus readily buy back supplies to lessen the sting. In comparison with other campuses I have attended, I am most satisfied with OSU.

    What to do for fun

    I highly reccomend to attend one of the Cowboy's many sporting events including our famous football team wihich is hosted in a spectacuar stadium on campus. There is also much to do along the Strip which showcases a variety of eateries, nightlife, and cozy boutiques.

    Food and Dining

    I frequent the Student Union, often voted the country's elite site for student life. The food offerings are ample and local chains are met together with national ones to provide students the cuisine of their picking. Along with convenience stores spread throughout, the campus doesn't fail to meet a fast-paced student's appetite.

    Dorm Life

    The living conditions are what is to be expected on a campus: Crammed, lively, and filled with camaraderie. I particularly enjoy the campus' ample diversity amongst the living areas.

    Academic Rigor

    Professors and their Teaching Assistants are there for you. The staff provide ample times to learn outside of the classroom as well. I have frequently attended help sessions of which I have attributed much of my success on exams.

    Tips for prospective students

    Enjoy the wide-ranging activities and get-togethers that frequently occur on campus. Do not delay in trying out a new hobby or learning a new skill with the long list of associations formed on campus.

    In three sentences

    It is a highly-spirited school with a focus on students' welfare. A blending of academia, athletics, social, and activity makes the atmosphere ripe with opportunity. The facilities have a genuine college-experience feel and the upkeep of the surroundings makes OSU an institution to be held in the highest esteem.

    Depending on what your major is you will have varying amounts of time you will need to study, but even with chemical engineering there is still time for fun and games after studying.

    Tips for prospective students

    If you are coming in with lots of credit from Ap testing or concurrent enrollment make sure you understand the material from those courses well since the knowledge you learned in them will be needed in other courses. Also make friends with the same sort of goals you have and study with other people.

    Greek Life

    Greek Life at OSU is absolutely amazing. I am in a sorority and going through recruitment was nothing like the horror stories girls hear, I had so much fun. Once you get through the week everything else just gets so much better. Your sisters or brothers really do help to better you and we all work and study together and it's just an awesome way to start of the year when you know you have 60 new friends and lifelong sisters that will help you.

    What to do for fun

    As a student you can purchase game tickets or an All Sports Pass and go to the sporting events. I recommend doing so, they are so fun and everyone gets so into the games. Aside from that the Student Union Activities Board is always hosting fun events such as a slip n slide the very first day of school. In Stillwater there are lots of options, movies, bowling, mini golf, golf, volunteering at the animal shelter, Boomer Lake, and the very famous Tumbleweed for dancing.

    Food and Dining

    The food at OSU is really great. We have a Chick-Fil-A, Johnny Rockets Burgers, a Sushi and Asian food buffet, a Mexican food buffet, an organic foods buffet, a sandwich place similar to Subway, and an awesome Pizza place. All of those are in the Student Union. Around campus there are tons of other dining places that are awesome as well. We even have a really delicious steak restaurant. The food is awesome, but the hours do not always work out with your time.

    Dorm Life

    I live in Bennett Hall and I absolutely love it. There's a convenient store and a Cafe and Starbucks bakery downstairs and there are tons of lounge spots and laundry rooms, as well as a computer room with printers. I have friends who live in the traditional dorms (Wentz, Drummond, Kerr) and they like their dorms as well. It all depends on how you fix your dorm and your roommate(s).

    Academic Rigor

    We take grades very seriously at OSU. You can always find someone to study with or help you in any subject. Every student I've met and sat by in class works really hard and truly cares about their grades and GPA.

    Tips for prospective students

    My number one tip would be to tour Oklahoma State as soon as possible and try to not procrastinate on your decision to attend or not attend just because you would probably like to have as many housing choices as possible.

    In three sentences

    Oklahoma State University is a really awesome college in all areas. The professors and TA's really help you with schoolwork and the work material. The atmosphere and home hospitality sets it apart from any other university, Oklahoma State welcomes you in and everyone is family.

    Clubs and Activities

    I'm a music major, so I don't really get to be involved in clubs... but I hear we have some great ones!

    Great for these types of students

    Usually we are the nicer kids. Snobby doesn't go well with us. For example, our football fans are normally really considerate to other teams when they visit etc.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    For homecoming, its fun to go see all the sorority and fraternity houses because they but up really extravagant decorations outside! If you are going to join OSU's family, you need to learn *pistols firing*! Just point your pointer finger and extend your thumb and hold it in the air, GO POKES! :) Also, everyone here loves the marching band, they did a Beatles, Disco, etc shows and they were amazing!

    Bang for the buck

    Pretty pricey, but I absolutely love OSU and am getting a great education.

    What to do for fun

    Going to movies or church events are great, there's a lot of eating places on and near campus. Just hanging out in the lobbies is fun to, (they have TVs and some floors have things like pool etc)!

    Food and Dining

    Oklahoma State is voted best Student Union!

    Dorm Life

    Some people are stupid (to be expected), but the dorm hang-outs are tons of fun, it's a great way to make friends.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes take work and the essays are usually pretty long, but if you pay attention teacher's give you all the information you need. If you have any questions, go to their office hours and they will be impressed with your effort and be happy to help.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you take campus tours and talk to some current students at the colleges you want to attend! It makes a huge difference- my visits and tours changed my college choice at last minute and I am thrilled with my decision.

    Campus is a boring place. I usually go to the movies, or take a road trip to another town with my friends. A lot of people think there is a lot to do in Stillwater, OK. That is not true.

    Food and Dining

    I enjoy not having to leave campus to buy food, but the food is over priced just like every thing else. You can buy a small box with two hot pockets in it for four dollars, but at wal mart you only have to pay close to three dollars.

    Dorm Life

    I can honestly say that I didn't care for the dorm life. That is my opinion though. I have talked to many students, and they have loved it. I believe it is all upon your personality. What ever you do though, do not live in Drummond or Kerr. Those dorms are probably the two worst dorms on campus.

    Academic Rigor

    Depending on your teacher for whichever class is taking is how hard your class will be. Some teachers are very easy going, but others are pretty strict. The classes in general are very educational and you can learn a lot from them if you are paying attention.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure to apply for many scholarships and grants. The school charges a lot for every tiny thing. Make sure you are prepared to work hard. If you don't do your homework or study, then you will undoubtedly fail the class.

    In three sentences

    I believe that the Oklahoma State University is a great school to further your education. Although, I have to admit that it is a bit ridiculous that they charge you for almost every thing. The campus is very nicely set up, and I do enjoy the school.

    What to do for fun

    I try to get out as much as I can. Stillwater has a few places to go to, but you have to look. Spring through Fall, the botanical gardens are beautiful to visit. Its free and runs off donations. If you have a pet, Stillwater has a few dog parks that are well kept and very spacious to run around. On campus, there is always something going on; from live concerts, the art museum, animal shows and sports. The gym is open late so you can get your work out on even after hours.

    Food and Dining

    I really dont eat on campus. My housing has a full kitchen and I cook every night.

    Dorm Life

    I live in the Family housing, so Im not to sure how the dorms are. My housing is quiet and perfect for families with children.

    Academic Rigor

    Classes are not a nightmare, but its easy to fall behind. If you take each class a day at a time and dont procrastinate on your homework or readings, you will be fine. Finals are tough, but if you do what i have said you will survive.

    Tips for prospective students

    Make sure you tour the campus! OSU has one of the most beautiful campuses I have ever seen. You really get an appreciation for its beauty once you start walking around. Dont be afraid to ask questions! This is your life and money, even if the question sounds stupid or off topic, ask it any ways!

    In three sentences

    Oklahoma State University is an amazing place to go to school at. If your worried about a big campus and falling through the cracks, don't be! Even thought OSU is a big university it still has a down to earth homely feel to it.

    Remember to always go to class. Plan study time. Please get involve with campus activities.

    Clubs and Activities

    Oklahoma State has many different clubs, organizations, and events to offer to fit any of your interest you have. There is well over 300 clubs on campus that are offered.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Oklahoma State has a bunch of tradition and most of them are at athletic events, and most of these you can either catch on to or you can ask someone older to help you out. Also, on Friday's we like to show off our cowboy pride and bleed orange by wearing orange clothing.

    What to do for fun

    Stillwater is a little fun town, and you can find all sorts of stuff to do in your free time. The campus has many different events, organizations, and clubs that can keep you busy while having fun at the same time. Along with the stuff on campus there is a lot of fun things you can do off campus like two-stepping at the tumbleweed, a night out on the strip, shopping in the boutiques, and back roading.

    Food and Dining

    On campus there is a wide variety of places that provide dinning options that can best suit your hunger. Dining options are all over campus and are all in close walking distance from each other. The food at Oklahoma State is not set up like a cafeteria, instead they are multiple different restaurants that each have long menus consisting of a healthy choices to milkshakes.

    Dorm Life

    Dorm life is an experience, but an experience I think everyone should have to go through. There are many good things about dorm life here at Oklahoma State and some of those are meeting new people almost every single day that live in your building, developing new friendships, and of course getting the opportunity to decorate a room that best describes you. The dorms here at Oklahoma State are all kept in good condition and some of the dorms even have dining options downstairs.

    Academic Rigor

    The academics here at Oklahoma State are by far one of the finest in the nation and I am not just saying this because I am bias, because it is true. Oklahoma State has some of the best faculty and best tutoring facilities there is to offer. All professors want is for you to do is succeed in their classes, so they are willing to help you in any way shape or form.

    Tips for prospective students

    To any future students joining Oklahoma State University, I say welcome to the cowboy family. I promise your life at Oklahoma State University is not a life that you will ever forget. Everything about Oklahoma State just makes you feel at peace and like it is you home.

    In three sentences

    Oklahoma State University is by far one of the most welcoming campuses I have ever been on, and I am so glad to be a cowboy and bleed orange every single day for the rest of my life. Oklahoma State University deserves more then three sentences to be rated on or even talked about for that matter. I give Oklahoma State a perfect score of 10 out of 10.

    Campus safety is awesome! You never feel like you are in danger.

    It is big on campus and participants really enjoy it.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are hundreds of clubs and there is always activities going on, you just have to look! (And not very hard)

    Engineer based, Ag based, Business based, Arts/Theatre, Zoology/Ecology. Really suited for anyone wanting to learn!

    We dye the fountain orange at the beginning of the year. Fun sight!

    Bang for the buck

    You get a great education for a great price. More money doesn't necessarily mean a better education.

    There are a lot of things to do off campus, as well as on. Clubs are always having activities and the local community is growing more and more every day.

    Food and Dining

    There are a lot of options for good prices!

    Campus Safety

    The campus has a great system for safety. Not only do they keep you updated on weather and give you tips on how to stay safe, they also have a great emergency network on campus. There are strategically placed areas where you can make emergency calls by just pressing a button. If you feel as if you are being followed, each post is stationed in view of another with a bright blue light. If you walk from one to another, pressing the buttons, they will send someone to help! I have not heard of any incidents for the two years I have been here, but if there was one, I feel that OSU security would be there to help in a heartbeat.

    Greek Life

    I personally am not a part of Greek Life, but I feel that my friends get a lot out of it. They seem to keep their schedules full, make a lot of friends with common interests and participate in a lot of community service. It isn't for everyone, but for those who want to participate, this looks great on resumes as well!

    Clubs and Activities

    If you think it, there is probably a club for it! Every major has a club, which truly teaches the value of leadership and commitment. The clubs are all well organized and, even better, student run! The members of these clubs often come together to participate in different activities, plan events, and do something for home football games. Clubs are an experience you can't get anywhere else.

    Great for these types of students

    This college, in general, is great for anybody. The individuals who will get the most out of this university are those interested in agriculture, though. There are many different farms and studies that occur on this campus and one of the best Animal Science programs I can imagine. There are many hands-on learning experiences and great staff in the College of Agricultural Sciences and Natural Resources (CASNR).

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    I am not sure if this is common on other campuses, but don't fret if you see students with bandannas around their heads armed with Nerf guns! This is the popular, campus-wide Humans vs. Zombies. Many students will take part in this fun, but random, activity. It is fun to participate, but also, just to spectate! If time allows, or if you are lucky enough to have a class there, I recommend every student visit Old Central. Years ago, this small building was the entire college.

    Bang for the buck

    I feel that some living arrangements are a little pricey for what they are and the food is very pricey! When there is a Walmart right down the road, it is difficult to pay double that on campus. If someone else is helping you financially, it is not that bad, but it is a difficult cost to cover on your own. As for parking, if you live off campus, you pay quite a bit just for a parking spot that isn't actually guaranteed. Many students will walk quite a bit to get to their class because, quite simply, there are not enough parking spots for all of the students attending! That being said, tuition has remained the same for awhile now and, without all of the extras, tuition is definitely worth the cost with the great teachers!

    What to do for fun

    When it comes to entertainment, that is in the hands of the students. It is important to keep an eye out for upcoming events and read the E-mails you receive. There are many events providing fun, friends and free food, but you may miss them if you don't keep up with E-mails and bulletin boards. It is important to keep your eyes open to experience the activities around campus. On top of that, depending on the student's interest, it may be beneficial to join some clubs (resume builder!) and go break a sweat in the Colvin Center every so often!

    Food and Dining

    There are many dining options around campus, however I can't speak for the nutritional value of the food. I don't feel as if we have enough healthy options around campus and I wish 20 Something would keep more vegetables in stock! Other than that, whether you are craving Italian food, stir-fry, soup or a delicious burger; we have it all.

    Dorm Life

    The only thing that makes dorm life unbearable is a bad roommate. There are many living arrangement options on campus that cater to individual desires or needs. Whether you prefer your own room, an apartment, or the true dorm experience; OSU offers it all! The common areas have comfort and fun for each student and it is your job to make the best of what you choose.

    Academic Rigor

    This is a school that truly pushes students to do their best. Each of my classes has proven to be difficult, but just enough to challenge me. All of the courses have the perfect amount of work to teach you as well as keep you on your toes.

    Tips for prospective students

    OSU is a very proud school and perseveres. This creates a lot of pride in the students attending, but make sure you have warm clothes and snow boots for those hard days when you would expect campus to be closed! Definitely create relationships with your professors. This will benefit your grades, your academic success, and your overall experience! When you receive E-mails about career fairs, make it a goal to attend. You never know what companies are going to show up and you may walk in wondering why you are even going and walk out with a potential job. Dress your best every day, no matter what you have scheduled for the day. There are many guest speakers in classes who are from large companies looking for employees. You wouldn't want to meet them in your sweat pants and tank top!

    In three sentences

    Oklahoma State University is a very friendly school with a warm atmosphere. The professors all take a genuine interest in the students' academics and personal well-being. Having many medical problems, it is often necessary or me to seek help and the administration, the professors, and even the students, have been extremely accommodating and caring.

    The university offer diversity.

    Bang for the buck

    Out of State Fees are too expensive. The University should offer more opportunities for average students. Average students deserve to be educated as well. In addition High Income households should have more opportunities for scholarships. Just because a parent salary is considered high income, it does not mean that the household does not need financial assistance. Keep in mind some hoseholds offer financial assistance to other family members outside the immediate hosehold.

    Campus Safety

    I am very pleased with how safe the campus is. OSU provides a safety button (located all throughout campus on a built in post). These buttons are located under a bright blue light and can easily be seen from any spot on campus. Thus allowing me student to go about their entire day and night knowing the police are a button away.

    What to do for fun

    The easiest way to have fun is to be open minded and get involved in a club or organization. There are countless organizations on campus and finding the location for their next meeting is never hard to come by, you walk over their chalk advertisements all throughout the day!

    Food and Dining

    The opportunities to grab a snack or beverage at OSU are easy to come by. Their are several places to sit down and eat or simply grab something delicious on the go.

    Dorm Life

    People in the dorms are generally friendly. Everyone makes a decent effort to get to know people on their floor and the housing communities often host special events to involve residence.

    Academic Rigor

    Their are certain courses that are less dramatic but OSU professors take their classes seriously and expect you to be prepared to work when you come to class.

    Tips for prospective students

    Students considering this college should keep in mind that if you are not willing to take the initiative to work hard and find time to meet with your professors succeeding will be a struggle. Everyone on campus is usually in a hurry to get something done because they are striving to accomplish as much as they can in their time here at OSU. So come prepared, get involved, and thrive with your classmates at Oklahoma State University!

    In three sentences

    Oklahoma State University is a great college for medical and business related majors. The campus has a wide range of clubs and organizations so staying involved is always easy! Lastly, OSU is a great place to make connections and stay involved in the Stillwater community.

    Orange Friday is not really a thing I've noticed unless you work for the university. Game traditions are dorky but fun to do.

    What to do for fun

    I hang out with my friends at the movies, going out to eat, parties on and off campus, and believe or not studying.

    Food and Dining

    It is okay, you do get tired of the food services that OSU has to offer because there are so few of them. I do however not get tired of Chick Fil A, that is one business that will not go out here on campus.

    Dorm Life

    I lived in the Villages at OSU with other prospective medical students. My living area forced me to break my shell and meet my neighbors, I was fortunate enough to have an awesome RA that made so many activity plans with all of us so we could become friends. Now I have a lot friends and am not lonely anymore because I came to OSU without any of my close friends from high school and middle school.

    Academic Rigor

    Especially biology, do not enroll unless you are dedicated to study for long hours and able to work at it and attend class regularly.

    Tips for prospective students

    Go out and meet new people, it helps with the homesickness. Eat whatever, your parents are not here to baby here anymore, enjoy freedom and independence. Study, study, study and do not procrastinate.

    In three sentences

    The campus is very open and welcoming with easy to find classrooms. My experience here at OSU has been nothing but productive, innovated, fun, and life changing.

    Campus Safety

    OSU is a very safe campus. There is a police force here that takes safety very serious. There are emergency poles throughout campus, so if you are in trouble, you don't have to call 911; you just hit the button on the pole and somebody will be there to help you. There are also text and email updates that the university sends students when something does arise.

    Greek Life

    I am not a part of the Greek Life but I have some friends who are. They love it and keep asking me to join it, but it's just not for me. However, there are many frats and sororities for students that are interested in that kind of thing. They are the ones who put on several events, including homecoming. Campus link is where you will also find the information on the Greek Life at OSU.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are tons of clubs that students can join. There are clubs that range from expressing religious beliefs to bass fishing to playing video games. Campus Link on the OSU website has a list of all the many clubs that OSU offers.

    The nation's largest homecoming is celebrated right here on campus, and it is quite an experience. Another awesome tradition is the calf-fry. Which isn't directly on campus, but it is an awesome celebration that many students get to enjoy.

    Bang for the buck

    OSU offers so many ways for you to explore new things while you get your education. Join clubs and organizations to see what is out there. Find what you're passionate about, and then go find others that are passionate about the same thing. I promise you that if you came here, you won't regret it.

    What to do for fun

    There are many things to do for fun! You can go watch Division 1 athletics, and go crazy in the student section. You can play sports on intermural teams, or go play sports in the Colvin Center. You have plenty of opportunities to make new friends, and Stillwater also offers fun activities such as bowling allies, a movie theater, and plenty of places to shop. There is also several spots to go fishing, and Sooner Lake is a 45 minute drive for all you duck hunters out there.

    Food and Dining

    Well the food on campus is not the best, and you definitely get tired of it by the end of the second semester. However, there are a few good options such as Chic Fil' A, Baja Fresh, Red Earth Kitchens, and Country BBQ. The food isn't the worst, but it does tempt you to go eat off campus because Stillwater offers several other restaurants such as Rib Crib, Thai Café, Ihop, and Shortcakes.

    Dorm Life

    Live in the on-campus apartments or suites! I live in an on-campus apartment, and I love it! I have friends that live in dorms and they hate it! The dorms are disgusting, but they are currently in the process of building new dorms. If you apply early for housing, then you shouldn't have a problem getting a nice place to live.

    Academic Rigor

    OSU takes their academics very seriously. They have great programs for various fields of study, and they push you to get as much as you can from your classes.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply early for everything! Not only admissions, but apply early for housing, orientation, etc. Ask questions! Do not be afraid to ask your advisors questions because you do not want to be unsure of what you're doing as you are enrolling. Visit the campus! OSU does have a beautiful campus, so come and visit it and get to know about the cowboy/ cowgirl way of life. Get involved! There are many clubs and organizations that do many different things.

    Campus Safety

    There are campus police on duty and systems in place to alert students if necessary, and lighting is everywhere. I am not aware of any issues with safety.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are so many things to be a part of. The student leaders at orientation did a great job of introducing all the activities we could enjoy. Then they warned us not to pick more than three or four or we would be getting a big lecture at the end of semester from our parents about our grades! It's an excellent place to be a part of something you like and be involved.

    Great for these types of students

    This university is great for all types of students, especially if you are the type of person who enjoys being with family and friends. OSU is a very welcoming and friendly community. I was a happy home body and was really excited about college but anxious about getting out there in the unknown world. This experience has been great for someone like me. It literally took two days after I moved into my dorm room and I felt like Oklahoma State University was my home.

    What to do for fun

    The Colvin Center at OSU is the place to burn up some energy. There are all kinds of fitness classes, a huge swimming pool and tons of workout equipment. It is really a great place, even if you are not an exercise fanatic. The sporting events are awesome as well as all the events that surround them. The town of Stillwater has a lot to offer for a small community. Making good friendships are the best thing to do for fun.

    Food and Dining

    The food on campus is great and I have not gone hungry, despite my mom loading my dorm room with plenty of snacks, peanut butter and jelly. We actually have some of my favorite restaurant chains on campus, and a newly renovated student union. There is plenty of seating in the dining area. With my meal plan I can eat 2-3 meals on campus per weekday so it makes it very convenient to grab a good meal in between classes or studying.

    Dorm Life

    I applied to be in the Oklahoma State University Honors College and was accepted. Therefore I was able to live in the Honors dorm, Stout Hall. This has been a great help to me, living with other honors students who have the same mindset and study habits. We also have common areas to hang out and spend time with friends, as well as social events within the co-ed dorm.

    Academic Rigor

    I had the great opportunity as a student of Putnam City North High School to take part in a pre-engineering program at our partner school, Francis Tuttle Technological School. I was able take three years of high level math, science and technological classes through their program. It has made my freshman year in college just that much better academically. I feel that Oklahoma State University has an excellent Engineering degree program and am already taking classes toward my major. The Engineering program at Oklahoma State University is highly regarded in our state and surrounding states, and I feel I have chosen the right place for my education and future career in Engineering.

    Tips for prospective students

    Oklahoma State University offers prospective and incoming freshmen students many opportunities to visit the campus and get acquainted with other students and the campus itself. I would definitely recommend attending these. They are fun and informative. Students are now required to attend orientation. I went to the 2-day overnight orientation which was a great way to get to know other incoming freshman. We were divided into Majors and then toured the dorms, libraries and buildings that were in our major. We played team-building games late into the night and were fed very, very well throughout the entire weekend. My mom attended with me. We had many choices of seminars and meetings to attend, some together, and some for just students or just parents. It was a great experience. There are other opportunities to become a part of the great culture of Oklahoma State University as well, such as Welcome Week. It's a great way to get involved and meet people from the very start of your time on campus.

    In three sentences

    For a very large, state university, Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma is a very friendly, family oriented community of students and faculty. From the first moment my family and I visited the campus, we felt welcomed. Any anxiety I had about taking the big step from my home to the dorm room disappeared when I attended the overnight orientation during the summer after graduation from High School.

    Food and Dining

    There are many options for dining on the campus. There are restaurants near each dorm as well as a number of restaurants within the Student Union that are able to satisfy the hunger of many students in between classes. There is a lot of variety in food choice which actually makes it hard to choose.

    Dorm Life

    Living in a dorm hall, especially a traditional dorm hall, there is a sense of community and togetherness. Dependent on the residents living on the floor, a student can find many other students to interact with.

    Academic Rigor

    Dependent on the major, certain subjects are more difficult than others. The work load and exams are dependent upon how important the material of the subject is. However, there are many professors who are willing set aside time to meet with a student in order to help a study better understand the material.

    Tips for prospective students

    Those who struggle financially should look for on or off campus jobs immediately being that there is an opportunity for you to pay off your balance throughout the year. Applying to your specific college's scholarships as well as general scholarships through the university can benefit you in the long run.

    In three sentences

    Oklahoma State University is a nice place to attend. If you are sociable person it has everything from clubs, extra curricular activities, and many other things. The people, housing, and places to go all contribute in making OSU an exciting university to attend.

    Academic Rigor

    Clubs and Activities

    There are a lot of clubs, and a lot of variety between them. Whether you want a club focused on your career, such as a biology club, or one focused around your outside interests, like a gaming club, you'll find something you can enjoy.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    The ground floor of the library is a common meeting place for group work or study outside of classes, so it can get a bit loud. However, the other five floors are much quieter, with the basement in particular being a great place for quiet study.

    What to do for fun

    Join a club or two, hang with friends, play video games, surf the web. The school provides wi-fi to any student on campus at no additional charge, so you can always check Facebook or Twitter.

    Food and Dining

    A wide variety of dining locations are spread all around campus. You can always find something to eat. There are also a few place to buy groceries, but they are almost always over-priced and are much cheaper down at Wal-Mart.

    Dorm Life

    I stayed in the apartments, which though expensive are very nice. The neighbors were almost always quiet by midnight, and were very friendly. The RAs always seemed to recognize me, even outside the dorms.

    Academic Rigor

    The classes are challenging without being impossible. Still, you have to go in to them with a willingness to put in some effort, or you won't do well.

    Tips for prospective students

    Apply early if you want to get the classes you'll enjoy. Enter in with an open mind and a desire to learn. And join a club or two.

    In three sentences

    An excellent school in an excellent city with excellent people. With a large international student population you'll meet people from all over the world with different outlooks on life. The teachers and staff are friendly and always willing to help.

    OSUPD is everywhere.

    Greek Life

    GREEKS RUN THE SHOW. It's a little annoying, but you learn to live with it. We all get along.

    Clubs and Activities

    There's literally a club for everything.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Homecoming is a hassle but probably one of the coolest things you'll ever see.

    Bang for the buck

    It's expensive, but so is every other school in the country. If you really want to be at OSU, it's well worth it.

    What to do for fun

    Sports. OSU is a southern school and southern schools love sports. We also have clubs and bars and movie theaters, but saturdays are for football. OKC is only 45 minutes down the road and there are plenty of fun things to do down in the city.

    Food and Dining

    It gets monotonous after a while, but there's plenty of good food to eat in the union, the KD Mezz, Scott-Parker-Wentz, Adam's Market, Bennett and in the city of Stillwater.

    Dorm Life

    Bennett, Zink, Allen, Patchin, Booker, and the other suite style dorms are phenomenal. KD, Wentz and Co. are kind of old and rundown but the communities are strong and the people are friendly.

    Academic Rigor

    Some classes are a breeze, some are treacherous, it all depends on how you approach it and who your professor is.

    Tips for prospective students

    Stay focused. You may think because Stillwater is in the middle of nowhere, you can't lose focus, but you're wrong. There's stuff happening every weekend, so be prepared to learn how to balance time!

    In three sentences

    The campus is beautiful, the people are great and the food is- well- food. If you're interested in Greek life, this is the school for you, but non-Greeks carryon just fine, too. Classes are pretty big in Gen-eds, but thin out as you get older; it's seriously a great place.

    Campus Safety

    Over the past school year, there were a minimal amount of incidents that occurred on campus - two or three small things in the fall and one in the spring. You can sign up for text alerts from OSU so you're in the know about what happens when it happens, but for the most part, it's a pretty peaceful place.

    Greek Life

    OSU has plenty of sororities and fraternities to choose from, but unlike some campuses, there is no hard feelings between those who are Greek and those who aren't. At some universities, there's such a huge division between Greek and Not Greek, but at OSU, nobody cares whether you are or aren't.

    Clubs and Activities

    There are so many clubs to choose from! Over 400 options for those who are trying to find their home away from home. There;s a club for just about every major, every college, every nationality - you name it, and it probably exists at OSU.

    Great for these types of students

    Honestly, OSU is one of those places where everyone can find their niche. There are all types of people around campus, and plenty of clubs to find like-minded people. I've made friends waiting outside of classrooms, in line for food at the Union, and in the clubs I've joined for my major.

    Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus

    Homecoming is such a huge deal at OSU - it's called America's Greatest Homecoming for a reason! Everyone goes all out - the sororities, the fraternities, the clubs around campus. It's something that everyone participates in, and most people invite their families to the spectacle, too! The fountain in front of the Library is dyed orange for the event and it's something that we all - students, faculty, and alumni - look forward to.

    What to do for fun

    Stillwater is a small town, but it's so full of things to do! Lots of great local restaurants, a move theater (with great student discounts and cheap Tuesday matinees!), several lakes for recreational activities, and the campus activities board is always having guest speakers or events at the Student Union. There's always something going on!

    Food and Dining

    There are a lot of dining options at OSU, but most of them have weird hours, which is a bit inconvenient depending on class times.

    Dorm Life

    There are so many dorm options at OSU, and they're building more over the summer of 2014! I lived in a four bedroom/two bathroom apartment style dorm and, while expensive, it was a great experience. No community bathrooms or shared bedrooms. I highly recommend the apartment-style dorms if you have the available funds.

    Academic Rigor

    I would say that the classes are pretty challenging, even the freshman-level courses, but attending class and visiting the professors during office hours is the best way to keep your grades up.

    Tips for prospective students

    Take a walk around campus to learn where all of the academic buildings are. It's also a great way to meet people. There are so many students that it's rare to see the same person twice, so if you really hit it off with someone, get their contact information right then and there. Stay on top of your schoolwork, and go to class! Don't take an 8 a.m. class. No amount of convincing yourself will work to get you out of bed in the morning.

    In three sentences

    Not only is the campus beautiful, but it's also full of the absolute friendliest people. Everyone is so full of school spirit and is always willing to lend a helping hand, whether you know them or not. The classes are challenging, but I've learned so much and it's all been worth it.

    Dorm Life

    I am part of a living learning community where students from the same major all stay on the same floor of a dorm and share classes. I believe this is a huge advantage for me and the others staying on the floor.

    Academic Rigor

    I have not taken any classes yet, but they make sure you are taking a challenging enough class while taking a class that you can handle.

    Tips for prospective students

    Check your OSU email a lot to make sure you are taking care of all the requirements that you have. Get Involved

    In three sentences

    They are very helpful in making sure everything you need to complete has been done. They are very organized in everything they do. When I am on the campus I feel like I am part of a big family.

    So many great places to eat. There is even a Fuzzy's Taco Shop. Although, I wouldn't suggest the whole wheat pizza at the Student Union.

    Dorm Life

    Although the dorms aren't THAT nice, but then again, what college has extra nice dorms? But there are so many activities and events that will get you involved with your halls and great opportunities to meet people.

    Academic Rigor

    Oklahoma State University offers so many opportunities and programs that allow research and extended learning. It is a great place if you want hands on learning and to be a part of actual research done by the professors.
