Oklahoma State University Reviews
Beautiful campus, lots of history, lovely walking tour. growing school and town. Town is very school orientated. more »
OSU should be proud of their campus and sporting facilities. Extremely modern, well maintained and state of the art. I recommend attending and supporting the student athletes. Good job Stillwater! more »
I love this beautiful campus. There is a lot of walking, but there is more to take in visually.
I was forced to take a summer class here a while back and everything about it was light years ahead of my home University. In fact recently I had to contact both universities. Within about an hour I had all the info I needed from OSU. My home University took 4 days, several phone calls, and emails. It's clear who cares about their students and who's coasting off the fame of their football team.
