Cowboys for Veterans

Honoring our heroes for their courage
Serving others is at the heart of Oklahoma State University's land-grant mission. We are committed to providing the support and resources necessary to enhance individual and academic success for Veterans, Active Duty Military, Reservists, National Guardsman and their families.
In honor and recognition of our Veterans, we have put together a number of events and activities, including the display of flags on Library Lawn (Nov. 4), the Grand Reopening of the Student Veteran Success Center (Nov. 12), Cowboys for Veterans Christmas Bag Program (Nov. 23 to Dec. 13), and a Folds of Honor celebration at the Oklahoma State Cowboy football game vs. TCU (Nov. 13).

Christmas Bag Program

Let's come together and show our gratitude
This holiday season we are encouraging the Cowboy family to help give back to our veterans by donating to the Cowboys for Veterans Christmas Bag Program.
From Nov. 12 to Dec. 13, we're joining a locally established philanthropy project to collect 800 holiday gift bags filled with clothing, essential items and more for veterans in veterans centers and hospice care across the state. Donation boxes can be found outside of the newly reopened Student Veteran Success Center and other locations across campus.

OSU Student Veteran Success Center

Join us for our reopening event on Nov. 12, at 11 a.m.
Cowboy family, we look forward to having you join us to commemorate this exciting event, which will include programing from Coordinator for Student Veteran Success Vincent Rivera, as well as President Shrum, OSU student Emerson Newell and student veteran Joshua Fisher.
The reopening will take place at the Student Union on the first floor landing overlooking Formal Gardens. We will also announce details on the upcoming Cowboys for Veterans Christmas Bag Program, a special opportunity to give back to our veterans this holiday season.

Military Appreciation Game

Cowboy football vs. TCU on Nov. 13 
The theme for Saturday's game is Military Appreciation in partnership with Folds of Honor. OSU will honor both Veterans and the 42 Folds of Honor scholarship recipients at OSU. 
Festivities for Saturday's game also include the pregame block party on Hall of Fame Avenue, several events to honor Heisman trophy winner Barry Sanders, including a a statue unveiling outside the northwest corner of the stadium (5 p.m.), as well as the first ever "#BlackoutBPS" of Boone Pickens Stadium, where all fans are encouraged to dress in black clothing instead of the traditional "Sea of Orange."
