We're a family here at OSU

And we're here to support you however you need. More than anything, we want you to know that you belong here. We’ll say it again for the people in the back – on our campus and in our Cowboy family, you are welcome, accepted and respected! Reach out if you need help.

Speaking of…

Here’s the different departments in the Division of Student Affairs who are here to do just that – HELP YOU!


Meet the people in your corner

Career Services
Whether you’re looking for a part-time job, exploring different career paths or need help honing your interviewing skills, these folks are your people.

Housing and Residential Life
Every Cowboy needs a home, and this department is here to provide a safe, affordable, accessible and well-maintained community while you’re living on campus.

Leadership and Campus Life
Find your place and your people on campus. Get involved in one of our more than 500 campus clubs!

Hargis Leadership Institute
Looking for leadership development opportunities? That’s what these people are here for.

Student Support and Conduct
Challenges will arise, and this group is here to help when that happens. They’re here to provide you support services, provide a fair student conduct process, and address and prevent sexual violence.

Student Union
You’re going to want to check this place out. The Student Union is the place to be for socializing, studying, dining, shopping and more! 

University Counseling Services
Your mental health is a priority for us. UCS provides mental health guidance and resources for you both in person, online, and free of charge.

University Dining Services
Gone are the days of the boring ol’ cafeterias on campus. We’ve got 29 different dining options across campus (all delicious!). Fun fact: We served more than 693,740 chicken nuggets last year. Let’s see if we can beat that this year!

University Health Services
Feeling sick? Need a prescription filled? Needing a flu or Covid vaccine? Head over to University Health Services! They’ve got affordable and high-quality services right here on campus.

Department of Wellness
When we say wellness, we’re talking wellness of the mind and the body. Whether it’s playing intramurals, checking out a group fitness class, stress-relief programs or substance abuse resources, this department has everything you’re looking for.


Long story short...

You’re in the right place. We’re in your corner, and we can’t wait for you to experience everything that comes along with being a part of our Cowboy family.

If you’re overwhelmed and don’t know where to start, try not to worry. You’ll learn more about each unit as you continue to spend time on campus and connect with your fellow Cowboys.

Until then, get involved, make new friends, and have some FUN! Go Pokes!
