As a freshman attending Southwestern Oklahoma State University, I personally believe that this is a fantastic school for the degree I am pursuing. The professors are more than generous with everything you need help with. They provide tutors for the students at a moments notice! The general education classes are very blunt and straightforward if a certain subject is not your major. They professors are very nice and cooperative.

My parents went to SWOSU as well as many family members. They recommended SWOSU because of the hometown feel, easy access to faculty, great location, and success with job placement after graduation!
I liked the fact everything was well organized, and everyone was very welcoming to their guest. The counselors are very educated on their programs that they have there at South Western Oklahoma State University. There financial department was very helpful on giving me the best advice on which route to take with my financial situation. The campus was maintained very well. I did like that most of my classes were compatible to theirs, so most of my credit were transferred over. I do like their tutoring center and they also have tutors there for majority of the subjects. This shows me they really care about their students wanting to succeed.
