Oklahoma State University-Main Campus Reviews
Student & Graduate Reviews (18)
It is important as an undergrad to ensure that you are pushing yourself with your course schedules. As a vet student now, I appreciated how easy it was to personalize my curriculum and found that the rigors of the coursework are definitely major-dependent. If you don't plan to pursue graduate work after school, a high volume high difficulty path is not necessary, but for both my brother and I, we had to carefully evaluate what courses would prepare us for architectural engineering professional school and veterinary school respectively. I had many fantastic science teachers who I would do research for without hesitation but a few other that simply didn't care much for the course they were teaching. Without a doubt, the best courses you will ever have are the ones taught by passionate and enthusiastic lifelong learners. They are not lacking at OSU!
When I say that Oklahoma State University is the best possible place I could have ended for the four and half years I spent getting my bachelors degree I am in no way being hyperbolic or facetious. The campus is beautiful and diverse, the professors (in my experience) really genuinely care about their students both inside and outside of the classroom. The courses offer range far and wide in topics, and the professors are a diverse bunch of academics. There are a million and one ways to get involved on campus, through student organizations, church activities, volunteer activities, and more. I also have nothing but good things to say about the study abroad office, which was innumerably helpful as I was planning to travel abroad my junior year. 10/10 would recommend. It's not perfect, but the goods really truly do outweigh the bads.
OSU was a great university and I became the person I am because of that. When I entered OSU I was not very confident and stayed to myself. After my first year I started to blossom and get involved because so many students on campus were motivating and got me involved. The faculty and staff were very helpful and resourceful.
Oklahoma State University is a fantastic college with pros outweighing the cons 100 to 1. As an institution, OSU is very accessible because all the different departments are within a short walking distance of one another, and any service a student could need (financial, academic, etc.) are located under one roof. The campus is also very enjoyable to walk through because the various greenery and landscaping combine for a gorgeous outing, even outside of walking to class. The staff is very friendly, and one of my favorite things about Oklahoma State is their employment of many students who attend the university. One example is the LASSO Tutoring Center, which I work for. They offer one on one student tutoring in hundreds of courses across all different majors, and there are a few other departments who have similar objectives. I could go on forever about how great OSU is and the thousands of opportunities students gain by attending; but what is most impressive is the university's desire to not only better their staff, campus, and services, but their desire to better their students to prepare them for life after college.
I found Oklahoma State to be an excellent place to complete my undergraduate education. I am very happy with the rigor of my coursework and feel a Biological Sciences degree has aided me invaluable as I work through a new curriculum at the associated veterinary school. I know that some Animal Science students have struggled in this regard due to the less rigorous coursework. Definitely strive to load your schedule. Take the harder classes. Your future professors will respect you for it.
OSU has many opportunities for educational and social needs. However, I was not as prepared for post college life as I would have hoped to be. I had many influential professors and many of them loved what they were teaching. The biggest downfall is the price of the school.
OSU is awesome college. Students should definitely consider taking admission in this college. The professors and staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. I have gained lot of knowledge.
College was a time of massive changes for me. I enjoyed classes, I enjoyed my emerging adulthood, and it was a time that helped shape me into the person I am today. Many of my life-changing moments happened during those years, and being at this university with this set of people was a major part of it.
I loved the university. Lots of options and complete college experience without feeling overwhelmed by size. Great sense of community. Terrific staff and faculty.
OSU is an incredible school. The campus and the town were small and safe. All the faculty and staff were friendly and extremely helpful. Instructors strived to reach each individual student and knew each of us by name. Many hands on opportunities for learning were also available. Overall, a great education for your money.
