Whether you're already an Oklahoma State Cowboy, or you’re just joining the Cowboy Family for the first time — we welcome you!

How we build Cowboys

A world-class Oklahoma State University education is one that can take you anywhere you wish to go in life. But anyone who visits OSU knows there is something special here both inside and outside of the classroom. What does it mean to be a Cowboy?

Committed to excellence, committed to you

The OSU Alumni Association, OSU Foundation and OSU Athletics create programs and services that contribute to the overall well-being and personal growth of our students, alumni and fans.

OSU Foundation

The OSU Foundation manages donor dollars to provide the most advanced educational opportunities to students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends of OSU. From scholarships to community programs, our donors generously support the spirit and tradition of Oklahoma State University.

OSU Alumni Association

The Cowboy Family connects with each other and the university every day through the OSU Alumni Association. Founded by the first six graduates in 1897, today’s organization serves more than 250,000 alumni and friends with programs for Cowboys of all ages. Learn more about our special connection through our Alumni family.

OSU Athletics

We welcome you to another exciting year of Cowboy and Cowgirl sports.  We have 18 varsity sports that give you an opportunity to be a part of the sea of orange throughout the year – from football chasing another Big 12 title to basketball’s fresh new faces, to the Cowboy Wrestling dynasty competing in its 100th season, and much more.

OSU Undergraduate Admissions

The Office of Undergraduate Admissions helps future Cowboys begin their journey at Oklahoma State University. With more than 25,000 students, OSU is committed to making its world-class education affordable and accessible to the next generation of Cowboys.

WE ARE ALL COWBOYSHailing from all 50 states and 98 countries, we are united by the Cowboy Code.

  • We end the day knowing we gave it everything we had
  • We dream only as big as the sky
  • We know challenges come with pain, but pain will not win
  • We have a passion to do what's right, even when it's hard
  • We stand for what matters, even if we stand alone
  • We finish what we start
  • Being a Cowboy isn't in our clothes, it's in our character
