I am so glad I decided to attend Oklahoma State University. There are many opportunities for all kinds of people to be a part of campus life including dozens of clubs, sororities and fraternities, sports, band, orchestra, student government, etc. Being a part of football games and Homecoming are also a great way to celebrate being a cowboy and get involved. There are also many excellent professors and a great Honors College, so you know that you're getting a quality education. Before I even got to campus I had heard about how friendly everyone on campus is and didn't believe it until I actually started attending, and it's true! You can walk up to pretty much anyone if you're lost and ask where a certain building is, and the people you live with in the dorms are definitely great. Stillwater is also a great town to live in because it's smaller than a city, but has everything you need. Overall I have had an awesome experience at Oklahoma State, Go Pokes!
Review Oklahoma State University
Oklahoma State is such an amazing university! The town of Stillwater revolves around the university and the community is so involved that everyone knows everyone creating a friendly environment. The people are nice, the campus is beautiful and of course sports are great which are a great way to pass time. This school is great and if I had to option to go to any other school I would not. I would stay put and continue my education with my school family.
At Oklahoma State University everyone is made to feel like family from the classrooms, to the football games, to the student life events. The library has plenty of resources, such as printers, computers, tutoring centers and it even offers private rooms to reserve for group studies. With so many clubs offered it is almost too hard to choose! The student union is the heart of the campus and a great gathering place for all. With all the team spirit and cowboy pride Oklahoma State University can turn anyone into a Cowgirl or Cowboy! Go Pokes!
