What Students Are Saying

3.72 Average Rating
Even if it is for a year, live in the dorm. Also, join activities. You will meet new people and have the wonderful college experience. Every teacher has office hours therefore take advantage of that. Your grades will improve.
Alejandra from Guymon, OK
The campus may seem small, but looks can be deceiving. Go to the campus, look at all the departments your interested in, talk to the teachers (they are always willing to give you a summary of the class and are really friendly), and talk to some of the students in the departments building to get a better perspective of the area of your interest. SWOSU is an awesome campus, don't rule it out until you check it out.
Amanda from Clinton, OK
Visit the campus! The HS Relations staff is fantastic.

Make friends with people that live in the dorms -- they are on the ones that know about the fun stuff going on.

Even if you live off campus, consider getting a campus meal plan.

Find ways to show the faculty that you are there to learn. Ask questions in class, take advantage of office hours to ask in-depth questions. The key at SWOSU is to separate yourself from some of the other students who are kind of coasting.

Join a club -- any club -- just to get plugged-in to meet new people. If you're not sure what's best for you, stop by the VP of Student Affairs' office for help.

As it gets closer to graduation, you need to take charge of your own job search. When I was there (in the mid-90s) virtually no recruiters came to campus and the office wasn't much help.
Jace from Chicago, IL
Talk to others who have gone here. There are many tricks I've learned about free printing or free copies that I never would have known unless I talked to other students around the campus. Also, get to know as many people as you can. This way you will always have someone to eat with and you will recognize many faces around campus. Get your homework done as soon as possible. Staying ahead of the game with your work makes everything much easier and causes a lot less stress.

Definitely visit the campus.

Ask questions.

Live in the dorms the first year, you will meet lots of people.

The meal plan isn't always good if you like making your own food, there aren't a whole lot of choices to choose from in the cafeteria or university grill.
