Am learning a lot
The professors and the textbooks are very informative and presented in a way that is simple to understand.
Am enjoying being here
There is a great selection of classtimes and online options that will accomodate busy working parents like me.
Bang for the buck
This school is much more affordable than any other state university.
Tips for prospective students
Make sure to enroll in your classes early for the best selection.
Great for these types of students
OSU-OKC has a convenient central location for students commuting from anywhere around the metro area, and it is ideal for new college students who want to build their confidence and save money before they transfer to a four year university to complete their bachelors degree.

Oklahoma State in Oklahoma City is a very prestigious college and well suited for the high school graduate and adult student. The buildings on campus are very well maintained and the engineering building is ran completely from solar and wind power. OSU-OKC strives to be a leader in the education field and i believe they are among the best.
Tips for prospective students
My tip would be for new students to follow their hearts. OSU-OKC offers many different fields of study to match just about every career plan. Also, new students should definitely take advantage of the tutors and mentor programs they are there to help you suceed and advice you on what classes to take to meet your degree.
Academic Rigor
OSU-OKC wants you to succeed and recieve a degree. With that being said, the workload is challenging and the professors push you to strive for that extra effort to get an A. whether its writing 5-10 page essays or building a circuit in Engineering, you are sure to find adversity, but with proper amounts of study there is no end to the possiblities.
Food and Dining
OSU-OKC Student Center has a wonderful cafeteria with exquisite meal options. best place to grab a snack or a meal and hang out or work on homework. very quiet so no distractions while working on homework.
What to do for fun
OSU-OKC has plenty to offer when it comes to fun activities. For instance, the OSU-OKC campus has a five hole golf course that many students take advantage of and the best part rental equipment is FREE! Also, occasionally they have movie night on the lawn in front of the Student Center, and not old nobody cares movies but some of the most recent exciting movies. For example, the last two movies have been Captain America Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy. OSU-OKC also has training courses for those who want to learn how to ride a motorcycle, which in my opinion is absolutely amazing. they teach you the basics, what to avoid, and how to be on the watch for other drivers.
Bang for the buck
With so many extra events or classes that are available, OSU-OKC is definitely worth every penny. Not only is there so much that students can take advantage of, they also host events that entire families are welcome to like the aforementioned movie night, the golf course, and student discounted OSU sporting tickets.

It is an excellent choice for incoming freshmen to get accustomed to the college life. Easily accessible from anywhere in the city. With the new parking garage, parking is no longer a problem!
Tips for prospective students

The professors are great and friendly. Class size is not small but not huge either. A good student to teacher ratio always helps when needing to ask questions.

Food and Dining
The student center is great for snacking in between classes or for having any meal of the day. Great choices and always prepared to the very best.
What to do for fun
Hanging out in the student center is always there for recreation. There is also a golf course on the same grounds as campus. How about that? A Hole in One if you ask me!
Bang for the buck
The topic says it all! This is school is absolutely the best when it comes to cost. Fifteen credit hours and my tuition bill was not even $1700!

Oklahoma State University-Oklahoma City has given me every opportunity to find a degree that fits my life. I work full-time and the online degree at OSU-OKC has given me the experience of completing my degree while still working at my job. This is more then just a school for me, this is like a family that never stops giving.
Tips for prospective students
One tip I would give to prospective students is do not be afraid to ask questions. I finally realized after going to OSU-OKC (forever it seemed like) that if I needed anything all I had to do was ask my counselor. If I did not understand what I needed to complete my degree they would steer me right back on track. Instead of attending college with no plan and taking almost all the courses in the catalog, like I did.
Academic Rigor
The Academic Rigor ultimately is what you make of the situation. The classes can be hard and will be hard if you do not do the work. After an Academic Forgiveness of two semesters, I found out the hard way that understanding your classes is solely up to you. If you want an A in a particular class then you will do anything for that A, instead of partying going to class is an excellent alternative. Near the end of the semesters most teachers pay attention to the students that go to class and make the effort. Trust me it does pay off.
Dorm Life
Well Oklahoma State University-Oklahoma City does not offer dorms, but there is a lovely new parking garage that could satisfy some needs of dorm life.
Food and Dining
I definitely recommend the breakfast at OSU-OKC especially the biscuits and gravy with bacon. It is the best thing in the morning during Summer Classes when you have a fifteen minute break from the 3 hour class. It is especially better if you show your teacher and it makes them hungry enough to take a class journey to the Student Center.
What to do for fun
At school the things that I find fun now are probably not the most exciting things in the world to everyone. I really enjoy studying now the closer I get to graduation. Before when I would go to school it was always enjoyable to go to the gym or walk the track with the geese. WATCH OUT FOR GOOSE POOP.
Bang for the buck
I would check out the price of meals at school compared to most fast food places because if its only $2.80 for breakfast at school then Goodbye Sonic and Hello School Food.
Share any unusual traditions or locations on campus
An unusual location on campus the breeze way in front of the Business Technology building because if you do not know someone is there you could get startled enough to scream like your being chased by bees.
Great for these types of students
Everything at OSU-OKC is great for any type of student. Try everything at the school and stay open minded for all the opportunities you will be given.
Clubs and Activities
All the flyers are very helpful when picking out things to do, definitely look at all the options to ensure the most bang for your buck.
Campus Safety
The campus has wonderful security that will always monitor the parking lot and watch the campus for everyone's safety. They will always jump your car if you leave your car lights on during class and your battery dies.
