So far being a freshman on campus is amazing! There are plenty of clubs and organizations you can join, and it is like one giant family. It is a walking campus, but there are free bus services as well as rental scooters and bicycles. There are a variety of campus housing options as well as accommodations for those who may need it.
Here in Stillwater, Oklahoma is the home of the main campus of Oklahoma State University (OSU). I grew up on campus, the beautiful scenery and all of the students who are friendly as can be make OSU a wonderful place to study, learn, and live. Stillwater is not only the home of OSU but also the home to a vibrant community that has endless offers of a wide range of activities and events.
I absolutely love Oklahoma State University-Main Campus, the people here are amazing and make you feel welcomed. The campus is large but easy to navigate as well as beautiful buildings. There are also groups and clubs for everyone to feel included and it is like home away from home.
I love the campus and not only that, the people there are amazing. I went on the tour and fell in love with everything there, the campus, the people, and the vibe that the school was giving off. Just a few weeks later I came back to the campus for my freshman orientation and fell in love with the campus all over again. The people giving us the tour were so full of life and gave great advice on how to cope with being in a brand new environment at the school. The rooms may have been a bit small, but it didn't matter because we were only there for one night. Anyways the rest of orientation was stupendous and if I could do it again I would. There's nothing I would change about the school what so ever. I just wish there was a way for me to be able to afford my tuition to stay all four years at this amazing school.

The decision to attend college and complete a degree was journey that can only be understood by those who have experienced it first hand. College not only prepared me academically for the workforce, it also developed my maturity and interpersonal skills. I was constantly challeged intellectually by my professors who were not only instructors, but also motivators. I was able to interact with different personalities, socio-economic backgrounds, and ethnicities which allowed me to understand and relate to these different perspectives and backgrounds. College also gave me experience in fiscal responsiblility to manage limited financial resources.
The value of a college education should not be underestimated. The value is not only limted to increased income potential, but also includes obtaining an increased sense of self awareness as well as developing positive social relationships. Attending college has allowed me to achieve financial goals as well as understand that I have a social and ethical responsibility to society. It also has helped me to understand that attending college and attaining a degree is something that should be advised to anyone who has not had the experience.
Students at Oklahoma State are overwhelmingly pleasant. While walking to class, students often share smiles, say hello, or even introduce themselves. Here at OSU you will often find people opening doors for one and other and exibiting excellent manners. Furthermore, the majority of students are involved in clubs or organizations that are often raising awareness or doing projects on campus. During the spring and fall seasons you will find students relaxing on the library lawn reading a book, playing frisbee, tossing a football around, or eating ice cream. The student body at OSU is undeniably incredible.
nothing here is that bad
I wish I had learned more from my high school education. I didn't go to a very good school, so I missed out on a lot that was later provided to me through my college education.
We are a tobacco free campus and also one of the healthiest campuses in Oklahoma. Our gym, which is named the Colvin Center, is huge and inviting. We are a very safe campus, security will walk you to your dorm any time from seven to three a.m.
Oklahoma State cares acidemic growth, but more importantly personal growth.
The most frustrating thing about my school is the out-of-state tuition rate.
I believe the best thing about Oklahoma State University is its school unity. Although I am not a big fan of sporting events, I believe it is these events that bring together the student body. The alumni are very devoted to OSU, proving that there is something about this school that embeds a loyalty to its past and previous students.
People who want to express themselves in the way they dress may not want to come to this school because a large group of the students here are very judgemental. I have seen groups of girls stare at people and laugh just because that person may not be wearing what they believe to be "cool." This is not always the case but I would not want to see this happen to someone who was not expecting it.
I brag about how I love the campus, some of the skills that I have learned from my former classes (i.e. computer literacy and interpersonal skills). I like the fact that prior to graduating, I was able to meet up with advisors who helped me not only with my resume but with helping me realize what type of career I should pursue.
Students from all around the United States and even in some other countries attend OSU, and the best way i can describe the campus is "smart". All the way from the very intellectual professors to the exam acing students, i consider OSU very knowledgeable. So if i could give any advice to future students planning on attending college I would have to say, come prepared. College is definitely not something just to blow off, but it's something to embrace in memories as a place where you meet knew people and aquire a larger view and knowledge of the world.
I don't think they're are many stereotypes at our school except for a few. There are of course the frat students who despite the common perception of partying all the time only represent a few of the entire frat students. Secondly, the athletes of the school who are praised in every way as sports is a pretty important subject over here.
The best thing about this school is the diversity and you never know who your going to meet and what their backgrounds are. The Oklahoma State University is a nice size, it's not to big and it's not to small. You can walk from one side of campus to the other in about 12 minutes, I don't think that's bad at all. Every time Oklahoma State University is brought up it's always in a positive manner. I have never heard anyone say any negative remarks about Oklahoma State University. I think this is an aspect that Oklahoma State needs to be proud of. The school pride is not just throughout the students, but it has overflowed in the town of Stillwater. I have never seen a town support their university as much as the people here do. Every Friday during the football season, you will see over half the students wearing the bring color orange in support of the football players and the up coming game. The unique thing about the town of Stillwater is that even if you are not the legal age of 21 there is still activities and places that you can go enjoy yourself and have a good time. An example is that Tumbleweed, this place has concert on a every other week basis and there is a dance floor where you are free to show off the moves you do or don't have.
I have struggle grade wise a little bit, but overall I have done well.
Sports activites are very popular whether it is from watching the football games on the weekend to joining an intramural team. Along with the Colvin Recreation center where many students are involved. Also, sororities and fraternities are a big hit. They put on a ton events throughout the school year and are very involved. Library Lawn is a popular place throughout the year whether there is an event there or just going out there to play with your dog, playing catch with a friend or having a picnic. The campus is always active. There are even a ton of events that the gym puts on including themed 5k runs, weightlifting clubs, climbing or hiking events. You name it, OSU is most likely doing it.
I like all the classes within the Animal Science and Agricultural Communication majors because I am passionate about the Agriculture and everything that is included.
Stillwater is a college town. That is the way it is. So there is TONS of activities for the college students here. We can go bowling, watch movies, Frisbee or regular golf, and don't even get me started on the restaurants... There are no joke 8 Subways that I know of, 3 Sonics, 2 McDonalds, I have no clue how many pizza places there are here. The other thing you will find is friendly people. Stillwater is becoming a very popular retirement city. So there are tons of nice people moving in to settle down for the rest of there lives. Stillwater outside of OSU is a very pleasant place to be.
Change is a funny thing. It is hard for the person to notice the change that is taking place in them, at least it is for me. But I know that I have changed. I think everyone will to some extent. You go from living at home with parents, grandparents, or something similar to being more like on your own. It is a very maturing experience.
So, I work for a DJ company. Legit, I know. And with this job comes opportunities some students never have a chance at. From meeting Shaq to being stationed on the floor of Gallagher-Iba at the 2011 memorial service, my coworkers and I have had rare and amazing experiences. But my favorite, happened just yesterday.
As a junior at OSU, I feel like I have lived it all: rushing the court at the KU-OSU men's basketball game, being there when we won Bedlam, studying late nights in Willard, being serenaded by a piano at midnight in the Seretean. Yesterday, though, I was in the Upper Club level of Boone Pickens Stadium. The empty stadium stood before me on my left, and on my right - the expanse of campus in its entirety.
Let's just say I am blessed with fun, spontaneous coworkers who think dolly cart racing is the bees knees; along with dolly cart surfing and proving the male coworkers us girls can lift heavy equipment on our own - and yes, our ideas are better. So, as I pretended to own all of Boone Pickens Stadium (thanks, Boone), I thought to myself:
"I will never forget this moment."
