Oklahoma State University’s historic Student Union is the vibrant hub of the beautiful Oklahoma State University campus. Its amenities and services are second-to-none, which caught the attention of BestCollegeReviews.org, whichhas named the OSU Student Union the No. 1 Most Amazing Campus Student Union.
“We could not be more thrilled with the No. 1 ranking,” said Mitch Kilcrease, Student Union director and assistant vice president of Student Affairs. “It’s a true testament to the love and passion people have for this building as well our commitment to the brand’s promise.”
The OSU Student Union has shown a tremendous ability to evolve and change according to the needs of the student population. Since opening on Aug. 20, 1950, the Student Union has undergone numerous renovations, always keeping students’ needs at the forefront of each upgrade. The 63-year-old Student Union recently completed a $65 million renovation project funded in large part by a student fee gift. The renovation brought many upgrades to an already iconic building, including improved retail and dining spaces as well as a more visible Campus Life area and student lounge spaces.
“We have a long history of servicing students and listening to their input,” Kilcrease said. “Students played an integral part in our latest renovation project, serving on focus groups and planning committees. I’m extremely proud of that. In all honesty, it’s their building. That’s why their name is on it.”
For more than 63 years, thousands of students, alumni, faculty and staff members have visited the Student Union every day. The building hosts a countless number of diverse programs and services as well as offers a wide selection of eateries and retail outlets.
