Beautiful fall and spring, sometimes too long of winter, and brutal summers. Weather can be very bipolar - 70 degrees in the morning, and snow by night. Be prepared for any occasion!
There is not much to do besides go out to eat, go to the bars, or exercise at the lake. For heavily academic people, this will not be a problem. For people looking for a vibrant city-like atmosphere, this is not the place. It is a small college town whose activity revolves around the campus.
I am unaware of drug activity, policy enforcement, and peer pressure. In my experience in my department, you can attend parties and have a good time whether you drink or not. I've never felt particularly pressured by peers.
The Greeks are very irritating. They act and speak in a very unintelligent manner, and are very aggressive and dominating on campus. There are enough students where you can find your own niche away from Greek-dom, but it IS a large presence at this university.
The campus has a large international student body, which lends to a higher level of diversity than at most other Oklahoma universities. However, the student body is still primarily white, wealthy, and conservative Baptists or Christians. Due to the sheer number of students who attend OSU, there is a community of liberal, LGBT, varied religious or non-religious, poor/middle-class, individuals. It is just not the predominant community, which can be very frustrating if you don't fit the the prior criteria.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
