Am learning a lot
The instructors here have a unique perspective and teaching style that really helps students absorb the material in a fun way.
Am enjoying being here
I attend the Rogers State University Bartlesville campus. It's a small campus in comparison to others, even in comparison to the RSU Claremore campus, but I believe it emcompasses everything that a college campus should and it's such a diverse student and teacher population that you really benefit from all of the viewpoints.
Bang for the buck
I guess it compares okay with other institutions in Oklahoma, but I think everything should always be cheaper, so maybe my opinion on this topic should be excluded. I just think they're a little heavy on the fees and don't deliver well on some of the items they charge us heavily for, such as parking.
Tips for prospective students
Relax! It's a really warm, friendly. laid-back relaxed atmosphere. Don't catastrophize. Nothing's ever really as bad as you imagine it will be. I promise these instructors will work with you if you have academic, or even personal issues interferring with your academics. They will give you every benefit of the doubt and talk you through whatever is bothering you.
Great for these types of students
I've been in classes with so many non-trads, older returning women, older returning men, young a.p. students, fresh out of high school, country kids, goths and people of every gender, culture, race and ethnicity, class, background, etc. The shy awkward freshman is totally comfortable grouping with the older returning female recovering addict and the cheerleader and the cowboy. Lol! But I've really seen it happen....very comfortably.

Will learn a lot
The professors in the Military History program are extremely knowledgeable, with either Doctorates or military experience. The courses offered are diverse. This is the only Oklahoma university offering this degree.
Will enjoy being here
The college is small which means smaller classroom sizes. The university is richly steeped in history and the staff, students and community are proud of it.
Bang for the buck
For a four year university, what more can you ask for? The price is right, the size is perfect and the amenities offered are plentiful.
Tips for prospective students
Schedule a tour. Bring a note pad to write questions you might have, or answers to questions you never thought to ask. Make a day of it and see the museum on site and enjoy Claremore; the town has a great deal to offer and if you end up attending, you will know exactly what it has to offer.

Rogers State University allows you to be flexible with your schedule and still receive a quality education. The staff at RSU is always willing to assist and guide students to make sure that the students don't fall off their degree path. The campus is peaceful and beautiful.
Tips for prospective students
Always enroll in classes during the pre-enrollment period. RSU has a ton of great classes available, but if you don't enroll early enough many of them fill up fast.
Academic Rigor
You have to work hard to pass each course, but the staff is willing to work with students who need extra help understanding certain concepts. The University also has multiple tutoring opportunities and labs available for students who would like additional assistance with their course work.
Dorm Life
Living on campus is kind of expensive, however the dorms are really nice. You have to buy dining dollars when you live on campus and for me that is what makes on campus living expensive.
Food and Dining
Great food and many options for students to choose from. Quick and easy to grab a snack or meal.
What to do for fun
RSU is a great campus if you are looking for fun activities. Throughout the semester they have events most every week.
Bang for the buck
I feel like I am getting a really great education without having to take out a ton of loans to pay for it.
Great for these types of students
Someone who wants to be flexible with their education, but wants to go to a school that is focused on providing a great education.
Clubs and Activities
There is always an activity going on or a club to join. RSU encourages students to get involved and has many opportunities for students to participate.
Campus Safety
Everyone is very friendly and makes you feel at home. A relatively quiet campus, especially at night. RSU shows concern for the safety of their students and has created a very safe environment for its students.

I have just transferred from Tulsa Community College, and I love Rogers State University. This University and it's faculty go beyond their titles to ensure your success here. I have only attended two colleges and I really wish I would have started at RSU.
Tips for prospective students
If you are looking for a helpful and encouraging environment, by all means choose Rogers State University. If you are serious about your education, you will not be disappointed.
Academic Rigor
Rogers State University makes sure that all students understand the policies. In addition, they offer success. By this I mean, their is no reason to have issues with your academics, unless you are not serious about it. The instructors, are always willing to help an in need student; without giving the student a hard time or making them feel less of a success.
Dorm Life
I live off campus, therefore I can honestly say that I do not know much about the dorm life here at Rogers State University. However, they do look very nice from the outside and they are in walking distance of the entire campus.
Food and Dining
I have not had the opportunity to eat in the cafeteria, yet. I will say that the food smells wonderful. I can also say that the setup is great. There is plenty of room to study and also it is located right across the hall from a computer lab with printers.
What to do for fun
Rogers State University has a wonderful location. It is located not too far from off campus dining and shopping. There are restaurants and stores less than five minutes away. It is also located about thirty minutes away from Tulsa which contains all kinds of entertainment.
