About This CampusOklahoma State University is known for its friendly campus atmosphere and award winning learning and living environment. OSU ranked number 10 on MSN’s The Best Schools of 2017 and with an extensive wellness program is branded as America’s Healthiest Campus. Of special note, and very popular with students, is Pete’s Pet Posse, a group of trained therapy dogs who come to campus daily to live among the students. Native American culture abounds in Oklahoma, home to over 35 tribes, with OSU graduating the highest percentage of Native American students in the US. An advanced technology Business Building opened in 2018 and a state of the art undergrad Endeavor laboratory in Engineering are unique in the nation for enhancing student learning. Athletics are a large aspect of student life on campus and OSU celebrates the 100th Anniversary of "America's Greatest Homecoming" in 2021. All this and more makes OSU an ideal campus for exchange.
Location InformationSouthern Living Magazine ranked Stillwater, OK sixth on its list for “The South’s Friendliest Cities 2018,” and OSU sits at the heart of it all. Stillwater, equidistant from Oklahoma City to the south and to Tulsa to the east, is a classic college town with a vibrant campus environment. Surrounded by small lakes and outdoor recreation spaces, the city offers a truly All-American college experience.
Helpful InformationIt is useful to have a car in Stillwater, although limited bus service is available and most social and cultural activities occur on or near campus. With record growth at OSU, enrolling in classes is sometimes challenging as classes may be full or restricted by prerequisites. The Study Abroad/NSE Office tries to help in these cases, but enrollment may not be completed until students are on campus for the start of the semester. OSU offers no enrollment guarantees.
