Orange you glad we mentioned OSU?

Posted by: Greater Oklahoma City Chamber on Tuesday, July 28, 2015 at 12:00:00 am

Oklahoma State University (OSU around these parts) is located in Stillwater about an hour north of OKC. OSU boasts more than 35,000 students system-wide with campuses in Stillwater, Oklahoma City, Tulsa and Okmulgee. OSU has been named among the top values in public education, according to Kiplinger and others, and it boasts a presence in all 77 of Oklahoma’s counties, thanks to the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service.

When OSU was originally established in 1890, it was named Oklahoma A&M. True to its heritage, even today OSU boasts top-notch programs in the fields of agriculture, horticulture and engineering.

Having grown far beyond its historic roots as an A&M (agriculture and mechanical) school, OSU offers todays’ students nearly 200 major fields of study. The College of Veterinary Medicine, the School of Engineering and the School of Entrepreneurship are all renowned for excellence.

The university is home to the largest student union building in the world, complete with a movie theatre, restaurants, student lounges, art exhibitions and an 81-room hotel that gives hospitality students an opportunity for first-hand experience in the industry. No wonder OSU’s School of Hotel and Restaurant Administration consistently ranks in the top 25 nationally.

OSU is also known for its annual Homecoming celebration. Each year, more than 40,000 alumni and 70,000 spectators fill Boone Pickens Stadium for a spectacle that supporters claim is the best homecoming celebration in the country. And Cowboy fans have plenty of reasons for school pride, OSU boasts 51 NCAA titles across its sports, the fourth-most team championships in the country.
