What does it mean to be a Cowboy? Determination, selflessness, grit and keeping your word — just for starters.

How we build Cowboys

From current students to faculty to alumni, Oklahoma State Cowboys live out the Cowboy Code. They face obstacles head on and bring a work ethic that impacts the greater good. We seek to highlight their stories to inspire and highlight what is possible with an OSU degree. Not everyone has what it takes to be a Cowboy. These are the stories of those who are qualified. These are their chronicles.

OSU is changing lives!

We find many different people on our campus doing great things every day. Find out more about the important stories unfolding at OSU.
