Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2016

The Pros to this university is that it is a small town with a large university. You essentially receive the best of both worlds. Low crime, a lot of places to eat, the campus is safe as well as the surrounding area. The level of competition is low, which can be seen as a good or bad aspect. Also, the staff can sometimes lack in some areas of education and advising. Overall a decent school.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

I am only in my first year of graduate school but I think my graduate program has been amazing so far. The faculty and staff are all so approachable, friendly and incredibly helpful in any way possible. The program is accredited by CACREP who came and did a site visit to renew our accreditation a few weeks ago and we got great positive feedback about the program. I feel incredibly passionate about my education and I am extremely lucky to be attending such a great program that is also accredited because I know they are preparing me with the best education possible.

Degree: Aerospace Engineering
Graduation Year: 2016

The faculty at OSU are fantastic! They care and most of the time they are working on some sort of research which warrants the need for help. They hire students to conduct research which helps them in the job market down the road. As far as cons I would say that the Graduate college is small in engineering and in need of more publicity. Also the scholarships offered are nil to scant.

Degree: Political Science

The Fire and Emergency Management Master's Level degree is great. The networking alone makes it worth it. The classes are very costly if you are from out of state, but the instructors are very well versed in many aspects of the field.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2017

So far so good. The faculty and staff have been extremely helpful and attentive to all of my questions for the online MBA program. The online classroom is very easy navigate and my teacher is quick to respond to queries. The only thing that could take my experience from a 9/10 to a 10/10 is a little more instruction and/or advising about how to take an online class as this will be my first time. Other than that, I am really looked forward to furthering my education with OK State.

A lot comes with being an OSU Cowboy (or girl). If you want a school full of spirit and pride, there is no better place to be. Though Stillwater is a small place, there is always something to do and some place to be. The faculty really cares about their students, and make availability a priority. The biggest downside of the campus is that it attracts mostly local residents and so meeting internationals can sometimes be a little difficult. as someone who likes to travel, I would prefer a more culturally diverse and rich campus. However, things have improved somewhat over the years.

Degree: Electrical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

In my graduate program, In our department as far as I now, there are wide research works going on, in many complex areas of study like optoelectronics, ThZ technologies, mixed signal VLSI, computer Architecture, Robotics, semiconductors processing, control systems, artificial intelligence, quantum computing etc. Each work has excellent professors leading the research teams.There will be meetings every week to maintain steady approach towards goals. The meetings which I attend are interesting, as each week a student comes up with the new paper or topic and explain about it. This way I feel updated to some extent. Coming to course work, it is challenging, but flexible enough to work more on projects that are part of course work and they make great contribution to our learning. When it cones to exams, it purely depends on professor how and when to organize them. All the exams that I took here,I think they really measure the content we learnt in the course. We had enough time to prepare for it before each exam. Sometimes it's worst scenario that happens now and then during the finals week, that student will end up preparing for 3 exams at the same time as they will be scheduled on same day with 30 mins gap or even less. One major isuue I found myself as a drawback in the program, is funding. From our batch onwards they made few changes, which are not student friendly. The student with 0.25 FTE as a teaching assistant/research assistant or Graduate assistant will be given only stipend for the number hours he works, he will not be given out-state fee waive. He will be given those benefits only if he can get 0.50 FTE . This leaves very less students to get the fruit of assistanships. I don't know why they made these changes, but I think it was good before these changes. I am interested to work on Graphene- nanotechnology and one important issue is there is no professor working on Nanoelectronics area. There are few working on nano-optics kind of things. Now, I am working with a gentle professor, who encouraged me to work on it, giving advices time to time , answering my questions in very friendly manner. so far it's good, but the gap that no professor is working exactly on this area, still remains. Apart from few issues that I had and faced, this program is way ahead of many others. It made me like this place, university. I learnt many new things, which I didn't even think I can. Great learning experience, worth spending my valuable time here in this program. It is not intentional, that if I accidentally talked about program, something that hurts someone. It is purely for the genuine review. Thank you

I love the flexibility of the program and that I can take classes online.The only down side so far is that the OSU website is difficult to navigate and has many broken links.

Excellent program with excellent faculty. Workload is intense, but faculty is very supportive. There is a good diversity of interests represented as well. Physical and GIscience are well represented in a primarily cultural program.
