What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oklahoma State University in Stillwater definitely has a great campus aesthetic with its abundance of updated classroom, lab, and academic college facilities, but what truly makes it great is the faculty and other students. There’s genuine school spirit here, inside or outside of sports games, despite most of us using “Go Pokes” ironically when dreaded midterms come around. Additionally, the university has its own police department, and they have resources that make it easy to reach out to security any time of the day. It’s incredibly safe here, especially with the LGBTQ+ friendly environment and programs they offer for students in that community, as well as school hotlines set up for reporting racial and sexual discrimination or assault. The only downside I can think to mention is the lack of some physical handicap friendly design within some of the school’s buildings. My first impression when I started as a freshman at OSU was of its students. The week before class started, I was attending Welcome Week activities to get familiar with the school and its programs. I met several international students that I practiced some Chinese with, I met several different student organizations (I eventually joined one later in my first semester), and enjoyed dorm life. Everyone was so caring and selfless, especially with one girl. Early in to Welcome Week, I accidentally dropped my phone in the street while exploring the surrounding facilities that weren’t in the center of campus. I realized this when I returned to my dorm, so I borrowed an RA’s phone to call my phone. I soon got a response and I met up with the girl who found it, thankful that she didn’t steal it. Many of the students here are incredibly trustworthy in these kinds of situations. I understand that theft can happen on this campus, but it’s few and far between. The bonds I made with students during classes were invaluable. In freshmen year, I made friends with three guys in Calculus 1 lecture; we frequently studied together the semester we had that class, and we all still hang out even into junior year, with none of our majors being the same. During my sophomore year, I made a bunch of friends during my organic chemistry lab and lectures due to the struggles of that course. People definitely went out of their way to help you understand the material if you asked for it, and didn’t berate you if you had difficulties understanding concepts. I can say the same thing for most of the faculty and professors that I’ve had through my two first years here at OSU. Almost all of them set very regular office hours and are open to emails for any questioning. If you need extra help outside of office hours, there are TONS of tutoring resources on campus through several different outlets. OSU is set up for students to succeed if they put the work in. I think it’s easy for many to have school pride here outside of sports because of the vast amounts of student organization opportunities (even outside of Greek life) and inclusivity that the college administration tries to maintain. We are given the resources and opportunities to get involved in what we’re passionate in, and the school celebrates us for that. I joined the Asian American Student Association during my freshman year as a representative for the group, and then went on to become its treasurer during my sophomore year. This organization allowed me to develop my leadership skills and, most of all, get me outside of my comfort zone when I competed in the annual Mister & Miss Asian OSU pageant that the group is in charge of putting on. I ended up winning during my freshman year and carried out my reign during sophomore year under my platform of raising awareness of prescription drug abuse. This event is one example of the kind of pride within our communities that we are able to display on campus. The security and the support resources here at OSU are pretty top notch. You know it’s a safe place when you’re walking across campus at 11PM by yourself to visit your friend at another dorm when someone drives by and says “stay safe”. OSU has its own security app that allows you to directly call its police department in case of emergencies, and they even have night walk resources you can request on the same app. One time, a friend and I phoned the OSU PD because they are even able to jump cars. Additionally, there’s police biking across the campus and patrolling major buildings all the time during the day. I started to develop a phobia of white Ford Explorers when I drive due to the sheer frequency of seeing OSU police cars driving around campus. All students get alerts if someone reports sexual or physical assault on campus. The police are on their game. What’s also impressive to me is the kind of counseling they offer on campus for all kinds of topics, with some of the heaviest being drug, alcohol, or relationship abuse. Most of the counseling rates I’ve seen are really affordable for students, and depending on the kind of counseling you’re receiving, most of your first few sessions are free. You can get counseling for any issue you’re facing, no matter how small. The school has great support systems for most situations, and has zero toleration for any harassment or discrimination that is reported. Lastly, the main downside to OSU that I can realistically think of its of its handicap design in buildings. It’s true that we have many updated buildings on campus, but some of the ones that haven’t been updated in a while suffer from lack of well-designed ramps. I remember one ramp in the basement of our science building being too steep. One of the most glaring issues I can think of is the elevator access in one of the arts buildings in the main part of campus. This building technically has 24-hour access for students if they need to visit studios within the facility to finish projects, but their elevator is not 24-hour access. I’ve thought about this many times when I’ve used the building’s stairs late at night. Additionally, I heard a troubling story from my own roommate about her issues with the physical disability service office at OSU when she hurt her leg in the winter. Apparently, with as much trouble as she had getting around to her classes, someone at the office suggested that she drop out for the semester. I hope the school becomes aware of these issues so that other people don’t have to face these same conflicts. Overall, OSU deserves some of the highest ratings I can think of, considering the handicap flaw. I love the environment, resources, and the friends I’ve made along the way. I feel confident that the connections I’ve made at this university will help me in future graduate school applications. It’s definitely worth it to attend this college.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

The OSU Stillwater campus is a friendly and beautiful one. On the first day of being there, I went to the coffee shop in the Student Union and was not sure what to get. A girl in line saw that I didn't know what to get and suggested a drink that she usually got and she was very friendly. Ever since then I have loved the campus and the people at OSU. Most people are very kind and friendly and the classes, in my opinion, are good-sized classes with nice and helpful professors. I highly recommend taking a visit to the campus and seeing it and experiencing it for oneself because it's a great environment.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love it! It is in the small town of Stillwater so it can sometimes feel a little out of touch, but we're only 30 minutes away from Oklahoma City. Greek Life and sports are huge because of how small the town is. There's so many food options which is great because I'm vegan and I have a good assortment of options.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Alright so I’ll try not to be too hard on OSU but this school and the people who go there suck, I mean they are the worst. If your a guy and your not planning on joining. A frat do not I repeat do not go to this school. If your a girl y’all can pretty much get away with whatever as long as your hot but if your a dude not in a frat you will be openly ridiculed at parties and social events. Going to this school ultimately destroyed my view of of every person who lives in Oklahoma. I’m originally from Texas so I always knew Oklahoma as a whole kinda sucked but I visited OSU a few times before attending and had a blast but when I lived there it was 100% different. Number 1 the cops are dicks number 2 the ONLY thing to do is party so this kinda goes hand in hand from number 1. If you get drunk often, as is often the case in college you’ll probably end up in jail more than a few times. The sorority girls are cunts (sorry ladies) although I did shag many during my time there. And last but not least the type of people who go here are the people who like to start drunk fights so get your boxing gloves ready. If your looking for a nice college experience I would advise OU as the ONLY option in Oklahoma. Honestly I’m lucky I didn’t hang myself from the ceiling while I was in Stillwater at OSU. Or just nut up and move to Texas, We should have left Oklahoma to the Indians. So I’m re-reading this post after reading some others and it is cracking my shit up. I know I wrote it but this is 100% the most accurate review for OSU. Ignore all the posts with girl names. Their sororities make them go on this site and give glowing reviews (I found my exes, haha. She was in a sorority)

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I truly love this school it has helped me turn my life around while giving me such in depth education. The campus life is very active and you can find a group that you fit into if you just look. The Greek life is very big at OSU, however it is still a mix student body of older and younger students. I wish I would have gone sooner!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oklahoma state is a great school! There is plenty of things for everyone to get involved with and feel right at home. From football, to equestrian, to greek life, they have it all. They also have a good off campus atmosphere. It feels safe and gives plenty of options of things to do outside the classroom. Inside the classroom is pretty good as well. Most professors are very helpful and aid you to the best of their ability when it comes to learning the material they give.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Attending Oklahoma State University after being born and raised in the Dallas Fort Worth are has been an enormous culture shock for me. Turning into an Oklahoma State Cowboy in the middle of no where after being a city kid for most of my life had a huge impact on my college experience. Even though this new experience was somewhat scary and difficult everyone at Oklahoma State University has very good energy and make even the middle of nowhere seem just like home to me. My over all opinion on Oklahoma State University is it is probably one of the best things that has ever happened to me because the school has made my college experience everything I'd dream it would be!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oklahoma State University is a campus filled with many opportunities, organizations, activities, and more. The campus itself is always well cleaned and tobacco free. It gives its students the assurance that they are safe and protected. My favorite part about this campus is the amount of resources they provide. For example the library is open 24 hours accompanied with computers and printers for any student, and this was very beneficial for helping me as a student prepare for exams or major assignments. Along the resources Oklahoma State University posses, they also have several organizations for students to get involved. One organization that was offered by Oklahoma State University that helped with my college experience was the Residence Hall Association. This organization helped me get involved and partake in the Campus's community. Ultimately Oklahoma State University was a well rounded university that supplied me with unlimited resources, knowledge, and friends.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Very good. I love the campus and feel as though we are a family. So far I have had a wonderful experience. The facilities are on par with some of the best colleges. It is easy to get involved and find a group of people that you fit in with. Everyone is encouraging and it makes the Oklahoma State experience worth while.
