Stillwater, ultimately, is endearing and amazing. It is a medium-sized college town, so if you come from a city, you might initially be disappointed by the lack of things to do. There are just enough restaurants, one movie theatre, and just enough shopping. However, what really makes Stillwater amazing is its personality. I have literally never been anywhere else that claims the local university with SO much pride, support, and energetic spirit! People of all ages have orange pride; being a student here puts you right at home. The student atmosphere is awesome; while Stillwater is small, the huge student population can't help but start creating subcultures of interesting people. There are musicians, hipsters, cowboys, Greeks, all creating their own underground niches around town. There is a place for you, I promise, and it will be interesting. You create your own atmosphere here, which is more unique and colorful than a generic city!

My experience here at OSU has been the best. The surroundings, the events, the professors, the RA's, the people, the food, the dorms everything is just beyond great. The school is very diverse so I like how they make you feel welcomed and they have many minority groups. I love that the library is open 24 hours Monday-Friday, so then if you ever need to do something at the last minute, the library is always opened. They also have 24 hour police services, so if you are ever stranded or you're afraid to walk somewhere alone, call them and they will have someone there within 2 minutes. I like how the facilities are always opened to you whenever you need them. This is such a great school, and I am so glad I am able to be here. Go Pokes!

I've only been at Oklahoma State University for a year, but I loved being in Stillwater and in the friendly atmosphere where everyone just wants to help others. I've made so many friends just by standing in line at one of the many places to eat inside of the Student Union because we shared common interest at that moment and I still talk to them months down the road. Oklahoma State University has made a huge and positive impact on my life. Before I went there, I was a University of Oklahoma fan, figuring I would eventually transfer to that school, but since getting involved I've grown a huge love for my school and will always be an OSU Cowboy!
