Student & Graduate Reviews

4.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Construction Management
Graduation Year: 2017

The graduate program has been very beneficial already. I have only been there one semester and I have learned business management techniques, 3D and 4D modeling, and pavement design. The work load is somewhat heavy for me, but that could also be because I am working 30 hours a week at the ODOT office in town. They are about to open a new structural lab which will help increase the use of technology and hands on access. Financial aid is a little weird. I got a scholarship, however I can't apply for any. It all must be recommended by faculty. this wasn't the case for undergraduate. So you never know if your name is in the loop for some scholarship, therefore you have to work harder on outside scholarships. Stillwater is a great town and Tulsa and OKC aren't that far so the surrounding area is great. Parking is a little stressed but everyone needs to walk a little each day. Campus has a great safety system setup with emergency stations very present as well as a safe walk program for nights if you don't want to walk by yourself back to your car. The engineering college is great about giving you every opportunity to connect with employers including a giant career fair every fall just for engineering students. The social life is all up to you. With over 500 groups on campus and plenty of off campus activities, a person has no trouble getting connected wherever they want.

Degree: MBA
Graduation Year: 2012

I attended the online MBA program while working full-time. The program was interesting and I learned a great deal in the process. The class was very diverse. Since it was fully online, we had many military and students overseas. I would recommend the program to anyone that is unable to attend in a classroom setting due to work travel/schedule.

The program would benefit from more financial aid/scholarships.

The Oklahoma State Graduate program is a great program with the best faculty in your subject area.

Degree: Industrial Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

Accessible for those that do not live in Stillwater. Expensive fees
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Veterinary Science
Graduation Year: 2017

I think it's a really underrated and under-recognized institution when it comes to national articles and ratings. No, we don't have the fancy facilities that others schools do but we have a solid core educational program and an excellent team of academic doctors and practicing doctors.

Degree: Liberal Studies
Graduation Year: 2016

That it is an internship. I work for 2 months, then back to school for 2 months and it goes on continuously until October of 2016. I find the pros of my graduate program to be that I don't get bored at life! I get to go to school and learn something then go apply it at work where it becomes beneficial and I experience more at what i want to do for the rest of my life up until retirement. I feel that the way that this [the program] is set-up is perfect! We get to work hard and play hard at both college and work! The cons, I would say maybe are the financial costs of the courses per semester. Nearly estimating around 5,800. For someone that only works for 2 months and works the average 40 hours per week, it is kind of difficult to save and earn the money without having to sacrifice social activity or personal time. Overall, I feel that this program is great because I get to be taught what I'm going to be doing prior to returning to work, and besides the fact that I get to work with different types of people from around the nation, its good that I get to learn from everyone's standing point of view.

Degree: Animal Science

I enjoy our graduate department, there are lots of great opportunities involved within it!
3.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2017

There are not many schools that offer a Master's degree in Fire and Emergency Management like mine. It is a unique and high quality program that will provide me with many opportunities in the field of fire and emergency management. The courses can be taken online or on campus, so it is very flexible.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

The Oklahoma State MBA program is nationally renowned. It is a great program, especially for distance students who do not want to go to a degree mill type of school. It offers a variety of classes, though not always available. Most of the professors I have dealt with have been helpful and understanding. Although the OK State MBA program is longer than most there is more quality education that students are getting from the school.
