How many times have you been told to go Greek? How many times have you heard about MGC and PLC and FRC and SGA and FIT and on and on? Do the acronyms hurt your head? Makes you want to shout, ENOUGH! No more alphabet soup.
The truth is you can get involved if you want to. Yes, we are talking to you.
Being involved makes it easier to make friends and connections on SUCH a large campus.
If you’re not in President’s Leadership Council or Freshman Representative Council, it’s not the end of the world.
Not everything in college is easy, but finding something you’re interested in can be.
#okstate has more than 500 student organizations on the Stillwater campus, so there is something for everyone.
Power in Numbers 💪
Check out the Events tab to get a nifty calendar of things going on around campus.
PRO TIP: Use keywords to narrow your search to events you would actually go to.
Speaking of calendars, the campus calendar will be your friend the whole time you’re here. Nothing planned for tonight? See what you can fill the time with. Take a friend, or make friends there!
It won’t take you long to figure out that the Student Union is where it’s happenin’. The Student Union Activities Board literally exists to make sure there are things for students to do. Figure out which one or 10 might interest you.
We goin’ to the ‘ship! WHAT!

This campus is huge, and it’s full of opportunities.
- Do something you’ve never tried before!
- Try rock climbing at the Colvin or a new group fitness class to get your body moving.
