I like how it is a small, yet not crowded and comfortable way to live the college lifestyle. Really great if you do not like to see much people around or not into meeting a ton of new people. You may run into people from high school in your class!

I came from a small school and was very nervous to further my education at, what I call, a big college. When I went to WOSC I felt very welcomed. I made many of new friends, and the teachers were amazing people. I am very happy that I chose to graduate with my Associates from Western Oklahoma State College.
I have been taking classes at WOSC while still enrolled as a Junior and Senior at Duke High School. The transition from high school to WOSC has been good. The professors and WOSC understand the "small town" high school student, who is actively involved in every sport and programs their school needs them to be involved in. Attending WOSC has been a good experience for me and after graduation from Duke High School I will get my associates degree from WOSC and move on to Oklahoma State University to obtain my BS in Agronomy.
