OSU has grown to become a premier modern land-grant university
Founded on Dec. 25, 1890 as Oklahoma Agricultural and Mechanical College, OSU's land-grant mission is to make a college education more accessible. Our roots are set in a rich tradition,
and our actions are guided by the Cowboy Code.
Since taking office in 2008, President Burns Hargis and First Cowgirl Ann Hargis have
created a campus culture of collaboration, innovation, wellness and success. Their
leadership combined with that of our faculty and staff shapes the various divisions and departments of OSU.
Located in northeast Oklahoma, Stillwater is just 60 miles from both Oklahoma City
and Tulsa. Southern Living ranked Stillwater sixth on its list for "The South's Friendliest
Cities 2018," and OSU sits at the heart of it all.
From being named a top public university to being known as America's Healthiest Campus,
OSU's awards and rankings showcase our academic distinctions, campus culture and value.
