Best school ever! Attended Oklahoma State in 2017 and sadly transferred in 2019 for nursing. If it wasn't for my major I never would have left! The classes might be big (especially basic science classes) but the professors really take their time to meet with you if you are needing help. Especially your lab TA's, they really want you to succeed and prove that by answering all of your questions. I was involved in Greek life as well. It was good, but it takes a certain person to enjoy it. Calf fry is also an amazing time. The town of Stillwater is very beautiful and has a lot to do/eat as well! OSU is a great school and an awesome life experience. America's brightest orange and America's best university!

My favorite part of Oklahoma State was the close community. Even from out of state, the community makes you feel at home here. The student body is generally very friendly. Greek life made connecting with others very easy and helped me find my best friends! Very thankful for my experience. The bars arent super crazy but they are full of friends and people down for a good time. Sadly, they currently are prohibiting greek tailgating on campus BUT there is always a pregame/tailgate at houses. You can still party, trust me.
Love this school! Immediately felt like home to me when I came here as a freshman. The campus is huge, so there’s a lot of walking to do, but it’s gorgeous. There are plenty of activities to do on campus through the Student Union Activities Board if you can’t find anything to do around town. The best dorms are the newest ones- University Commons- the others are alright. They’re livable but they have seen better days. All of the professors I have had were amazing! Really passionate and are more than willing to help students who are going through a tough time. Go pokes!
