College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: I rarely eat off of campus. When I do, its for a quick run to McD's

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: There is a variety of people, but most of them are what most people consider average.

3 College Freshman

Majors: For pre-pharmacy students, don't be intimidated by Mrs. Schultz. She might be a little condescending when you first meet her, but after your first semester she'll be more...friendly. Also stay studious, although that seems obvious, and don't slack off in any chem course.

5 College Freshman

Majors: SWOSU is known for their pharmacy program, so you'll meet a ton of people with the same major, if you're pre-pharm. The workload can be a bit heavy, so I recommend either CLEPing out of some of the fluff classes, do summer courses, or use AP credit. The facilities are obviously dated, but you learn what you need to, and sometimes that's all that really matters.

College Freshman

Scholarships: I didn't apply for or need financial aid for any of my years there.

3 College Freshman

Campus Strictness: They don't allow any alcohol or drugs in the dorms, which I'm okay with, because it's for everyone's safety. Visitors must sign out by 2 am, which is also a rule at OSU if I'm not mistaken. I have no problems with any of their rules, because they're in place for good/logical reasons.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: There have been times that I accidentally left my car unlocked for a week and no one messed with my stuff. I've also dropped my wallet and left my phone on a bench, and both times someone brought to a place where I could find it (the wallet-residence hall, phone-the dean's office). I know that there have been bad things happen out there, but I feel like most of those things happen off campus, and very rarely.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Although SWOSU has a lot to offer science-wise, there's a general lacking of fine arts courses. The classes can be anywhere from a handful of students to 80. Although the only classes I've ever had that had ~80 people were gen-ed biology courses.

College Freshman

Overall Experience: I haven't graduated yet, although I believe that as a pharmacy student, a degree from here would mean a lot, since the pharmacy school has a high pass rate for the NAPLEX.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Though a lot of SWOSU's professors are kinda...rough, they are good at what they do, especially the ones in the chemistry and biology departments.

4 College Freshman

Academics: The chem labs are pretty old, but they have everything necessary for a proper education. Though some of the biology labs are fairly newer, some are pretty old. There are research opportunities for both biology and chemistry.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Before I start: I've only ever lived in Stewart Hall. I've been in Jefferson a couple of times, but never in Rogers, Oklahoma, or Neff. I never had any problems with the res life staff; they're all really nice and understanding. The furniture is dated though. And if you get assigned to the third floor, have fun moving in since Stewart doesn't have an elevator. I also wish they'd just get new washers/driers since there's always a few laundry rooms needing servicing, but hey, at least the laundry is free...right? Another small wish of mine is for them to add an oven for cooking/baking somewhere in the commons area for those nights when Grill food just won't cut it.

3 College Freshman

Facilities: SWOSU is an old school in the middle of western Oklahoma. Taking that into consideration, it probably could be worse, but it could also be better. They've made a lost of updates to the campus from what I've come to see. The one thing that they really need to do is make some MAJOR updates to the residence halls.

2 College Freshman

Campus Dining: The Grill is open 6:30 am to 8:00 at night. The food is alright, but after a while you'll start to hate it. I also wish they would be open a bit later, because if I'm working late, I'll either have to buy over priced stuff at the c-store or lose my meal(s) for the day. The caf is only open for a couple of hours a day, and it's either during my classes or while I'm at work, so I never get to eat there.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I wish there were more options for the middle class. My family makes just enough to not be considered for aid.

3 College Junior

Drug Safety: I don't see a lot being done

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: try not to deal with the young girls at the desk. They are extremely rude and not helpful at all. But the women in the offices are very nice and helpful

2 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living in dorms on campus is pretty expensive because, with living in the dorms, you are REQUIRED to purchase a meal plan. I don't like that rule, and that is why I moved off campus and into an apartment. For me, it's cheaper. There are, however, ways to obtain room scholarships-- you just have to know how and where to find them.

Transportation: The international airport is about an hour away. The campus is relatively small compared to that of major universities in our state, so walking is pretty common, but having a car is nice during days of bad weather and exploring off campus.

Computers: As long as you are on campus, there is free Wi-Fi available. There is a huge availability of computer labs in different places on campus. The network is great-- the IT department is always watching out.

Academics: My grades are very important to me, so I'm extremely into my studies. It seems like, for the most part, other students are, also. It all depends on the individual, though.

Weather: It's Oklahoma weather-- the weather is unpredictable-- but I'm use to it.

Overall Experience: I love the size of the school and campus. It's great that if a student has a question for an instructor, it's easy to contact the instructor.
