I've enjoyed OPSU because it's like being a member of a little community. I feel like I know everyone on campus, there are many opportunities to be involved, and the professors know students by name. The class sizes are smaller but the material is still challenging. I highly recommend Oklahoma Panhandle State University!

Here at OPSU the teachers are great and get to know everyone on a first name basis. They actually care about your well-being and are concerned for student progress. Class size is relatively small which is great so that your questions are more likely to get answered. We have great agriculture, art, and computer information systems programs here. The people that attend here are outgoing, friendly, and courteous. It is easy to find friends here. We have a great set of apartments and our dorms are actually getting redone this year so they will be real nice as well. The only downside to coming here is that there is not really much to do besides hang out and go watch movies. There are not any restaurants in this town and the nearest place to get groceries is ten miles away. So definitely keep that in mind if you plan on coming here but do not let that stand in the way of your decision.
Oklahoma Panhandle State University lies in the small town called Guymon. Lots of People are complaining that there is nothing to do and that the town is empty. However, that is exactly what I like about it. The campus is nice and paceful, people are extremely nice and friendly and my overall experience is positive. Plus If you do not know what time it is, the train that goes around every hour will tell you the time very reliably.
