OSU began in 1890, part of a system of universities established to educate Americans who would build, feed and defend a growing nation. Today, OSU is a major research institution with more than 37,000 students, five campuses and 200 academic majors from art to zoology, including vaunted programs in engineering and medicine. You may already be familiar with part of OSU without realizing it. An OSU alumnus (Edward Roberts) invented the personal computer. Other alumni include billionaire oilmen such as Boone Pickens and former American astronaut Col. William Pogue.


They come from all over. Most are from Oklahoma, but many are from other states in the nation, and OSU is home to more than 1,700 international students from more than 120 countries.


OSU’s main campus isn’t just a place where thousands of students study and faculty members conduct their research. It’s also home to 5,745 students who live in 26 residence halls on campus. The campus, known for its beauty and architecture, is home to historic buildings, including its first building, Old Central, constructed when the university was just a small outpost on the fringes of the frontier of a nation expanding westward. Today, in addition to being the region’s center for science and engineering research, OSU has an art gallery, two collegiate sports arenas, more than 30 restaurants, a hotel, a world-class student gym and a 3.5 million-volume library. Its huge Student Union is home to dozens of departments, eateries, stores, student groups and other services.
