5 College Freshman

Party Scene: There are typically several parties a week on and off campus and it is a great way to relieve stress and meet people if you do it responsibly.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: I believe that the party experience has a positive impact on the student experience of it is done within moderation. It gives you the chance to learn what it's like to let loose in a generally safe environment.

3 College Freshman

Academics: The professors are easy to comprehend and they genuinely care about your success

4 College Freshman

Diversity: I believe that for the most part, people on our campus realize that there are all different types of people in the world. With this being said I think that those most are accepting, some can be very intolerant and that can cause an uprising of issues.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: In any type of college atmosphere the use of alcohol and illegal substances will always be an issue. However, alongside those who indulge in this type of lifestyle, there are those that prefer just the opposite and are more interested in keeping their friends safe by offering their assistance if it is needed.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I graduated from a very small high school so it is nice that the class sizes aren't large and that they are somewhat familiar to home.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I believe that I am becoming adaquately prepared to enter the field of work that I desire to become a part of because SWOSU is preparing me with amazing classes, wonderful instructors, and an easy going emviromment that shows that they care about the well being of their students.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: In such a relatively small school, almost everyone knows everyone so if you feel endangered, most likely, someone you know will be around. I feel extremely safe on campus and I do not have any relevant issues regarding this topic.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: I love the dorm life and the people I get to constantly be around daily!

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Personally, I am not extremely familiar with Greek life.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The athletics at my school are a huge part of campus life. It keeps everyone hyped up during specific sports seasons and provides students with appropriate relief from studies.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The school that I am currently attending witholds an easy-going atmosphere. I enjoy spending time with me peers and I thourougly enjoy attending my classes because of the lack of intimidation in the atmosphere. I have an extremely strong sense of pride in South Western Oklahoma State University and I am a proud attendee.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Love living on campus it has great people.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: Never really tried it before but seams pretty cool.

3 College Freshman

Athletics: Not a big fanxof sports but will go to some of the games.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love going to school here and its an awesome experience.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There's a variety of professors with many teaching styles. They are generally available and always willing to help. Some even make small talk or go out of their way to make sure you're doing okay when you stop by to ask questions. In two semesters, I've only had one professor who I expressly didn't like. The class sizes are appropriate, and the professors provide a nice environment to learn.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I've heard most students in my field find jobs, but I've got a few year before I experience that first hand.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I've never noticed any crime. The campus is a little scary at night if I'm alone. Swosu Police are very available if you need anything, and they'll take you across campus if you feel unsafe. All the bathroom stalls have a flier about sexual assault, including what to do/where to go if it happens and prevention methods. The Dean talks about it at the beginning of the year, and she takes it seriously and says it's very zero-tolerance. I never experienced anything that would make me feel unsafe.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: The OK Hall dorms are small, but there's a really nice amount of storage. Not many shelves though. We had our coffee maker on a shelf on the microwave on the mini fridge and it was kinda hard to work around. They don't seem to do maintenance unless it's required. If you cover any holes with duct tape, take it off at the end of the year. Also you have to clean your dorms when you move out, so be prepared to finally deal with that stain on the floor you've been ignoring for a semester. 6/10 for the rooms.

Bathrooms: The showers were full once during my entire year living there. Soap/paper towels sometimes absent. The bathrooms don't get cleaned on the weekends, so if someone demolishes a toilet it stays that way until Monday. Definitely need shower shoes too. 5/10 for the bathrooms.

The resident advisors are LOVELY. They are kind and organize little events, and sometime they put out cookies or donuts or almond-bark covered popcorn. 10/10 for the RAs.

Also, the smoke alarms are sensitive. It takes a month before the newbies figure out how to keep from setting them off. Be prepared to run down the stairs at midnight in your bathrobe.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I'm not involved, but my friend is. She seems somewhat satisfied with her group. They sold cookies one time, but I haven't noticed them much except for that. I don't think anyone really cares who is or isn't Greek.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I don't notice the athletics much. I've never been to a game or noticed any fliers about them. We do have a nice wellness center with a place to run indoors, exercise machines, and a rock wall. There's a pool somewhere and I've heard it's nice.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: For the price, it's a good university. The biology department is funded the best. The food is amazing, and the campus coffee place serves Starbucks at decent prices. The library has computers and printers, both of which are free to use. The dorms are a little old (except Black Kettle).

3 College Student

Overall Experience: Very friendly faculty, staff, and students.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: The new hall has a sink in each dorm room which is great, because I do not have to go the public dorm bathrooms just to brush my teeth.
