What Students Are Saying

3.91 Average Rating
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.

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.

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!

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.
Allie from Lawton, OK
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.
Kevin from Dallas, TX
Get a high ACT score to maximize scholarship opportunities.
Calvin from Edmond, OK
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.
Alyssa from Sapulpa, OK
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.
Katherine from Flower Mound, TX
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.
