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.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I am still a new student so I really have not had a long experience at my college yet. I have meet some very nice and friendly people as students, teachers, and advisories. The school is small in student body but has the same environment as my small hometown. Also, it has as many opportunities as any big university which is why I choose this college.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Overall the courses and professors have been fair and helpful in my first year. There is some class variety which keeps things interesting and class size variation. It's a pretty pleasant experience overall.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I generally feel pretty safe on campus. There has never been an instance where I have felt unsafe or scared to walk around campus. Police are good about patrolling to make sure everything is running smoothly. Overall, it's pretty effective.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is as good as can be expected. It's close to class which is convenient, but is also small and not spacious. The social atmosphere is good though, and I don't mind living here for the first year or so.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: SWOSU has a limited number of campus Greek life. Although it is not always seen, the moments it is, people generally view them in a positive light. Being on the smaller side of a college, most students tend to not get involved, but those who do appear to have an engaging time in it.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Despite being a D2 school, Southwestern Oklahoma State University shows its school pride by consistently supporting its sports teams. Many students go to Friday night games when there are some. The athletic facilities are pretty cool too and allow both student athletes and regular students the ability to stay in shape. Overall, our athletics is something SWOSU prides itself on.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Swosu police are always around and on call whenever you need them. They will even walk with you at night if you call them. There are many counselors on staff here if you need to talk to them. Safety is one of SWOSU's biggest concerns and they make me feel very safe here.

Campus Housing: I love living on campus. It has helped me become a part of this campus, not just a student. They have lot of activities in the dorms for the students to get to know one another while having a fun time.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am apart of one of the sororities on campus and I love it! We do a lot for the community of Weatherford and for the school. We are super accepting of people no matter if they are apart of Greek life or not.

5 College Freshman
