Oklahoma State is an amazing university. The campus is beautiful especially during the spring, there are always new buildings being built thanks to sponsors. Coming from out-of-state seemed intimidating but everyone you meet on campus is so genuine and will help you with whatever question you have. The sporting events are my favorite, there is nothing better than waving your hand along with everyone else when the Cowboys score!

I love OSU! The campus is beautiful and the academics have been amazing. The professors I have been helpful and if you keep up with your school work. Oklahoma State has been a second home, with friendly staff and students it is easy to acclimate to the new surroundings and my new life as a college student. The housing is nice and the food options are in variety. The one thing I would like to change about the campus is the grocery store options, there aren't a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables and foods to cook with that I can charge to my meal plan.
The best college experience in the state of Oklahoma! The Greek life is amazing and shines a positive light on campus rather than hurt it. "America's Greatest Homecoming" is something everyone should see in person. The campus is brand new with great long standing traditions. One of the best places to watch sports, a true college town. There is always construction and the campus keeps on getting bigger and better each year. Everyone should definitely check Stillwater out. What makes Oklahoma State so special are the people that attend and work at OSU! It is most definitely home away from home! Go Pokes!
