OSU makes Military Times top 100 in first year to enter survey
Posted on Tuesday November 21, 2017

Military Times has included Oklahoma State University among the top 100 in its ‘best colleges’ rankings for 2018, which is based on its annual comprehensive school-by-school assessment of veteran and military student services and rates of academic achievement. Now in its eighth year, the editorially independent survey evaluates the many factors that help make colleges and universities a good fit for service members, military veterans and their families. More than 600 colleges took part in this year’s detailed survey. "Of the hundreds of schools that applied, just about a third (218) received the ‘Military Times Best: Colleges’ designation this year. Only the best made the cut," said George Altman, the Military Times editor in charge of the rankings. “We are very proud to be ranked by Military Times in its top 100 colleges, especially since this is the first time we entered this annual survey. Considering our office was established two short years ago, it’s quite an achievement for OSU,” said Rick Hansen, coordinator of Veteran Student Academic Services at OSU. “It is now our responsibility to continue to grow initiatives to support our veteran and military-affiliated students on campus as they prepare to transition to civilian careers and see what a great educational choice we offer.” Military Times’ annual Best Colleges survey asks colleges and universities to meticulously document a tremendous array of services, special rules, accommodations and financial incentives offered to students with military ties; and to describe many aspects of veteran culture on a campus. Military Times also factors in data from the Veterans Affairs and Defense departments, as well as three Education Department sources: the IPEDS Data Center, College Scorecard data and the Cohort Default Rate Database. The rankings are published in a Military Times magazine sent to subscribers in November, as well as online at MilitaryTimes.com, ArmyTimes.com, NavyTimes.com, AirForceTimes.com and MarineCorpsTimes.com. The primary task of the Veteran Student Academic Services office at OSU is to coordinate with campus, community, state and federal organizations to provide services to more than 850 veterans and military-affiliated students in Stillwater. The office is also in charge of the Veterans Success Center on campus, which offers veteran students a place to study, interact and seek academic assistance in transitioning to college life.

Employer registration underway for OSU spring career fairs
Posted on Monday November 20, 2017

Employer registration is underway for Oklahoma State University’s spring career fairs and OSU Career Services is inviting early registration for the best discount. The employer’s cost usually varies at each fair, but most include an early registration discount. The spring career fairs offer employers real value through networking opportunities with potential interns and full-time hires. They attract thousands of students from a variety of disciplines and majors.   Fairs hosted by OSU Career Services also provide employers with curbside assistance for display items, free parking, shuttles, hot lunches, snacks and access to interview suites for next-day interviews.   “The hospitality to employers is first class and unmatched by any other university,” a recruiter from Chesapeake Energy said. “We value the enthusiasm and flexibility of their staff during hectic recruiting seasons and always look forward to visiting their campus.”  OSU Career Services facilitates quality career development and outreach services to enhance life-long learning and economic development. It strives to empower all OSU community members with the passion and abilities to achieve their ideal future.

OSU students invited to feast and volunteer at Thanksgiving lunch
Posted on Friday November 17, 2017

All are invited to join in the 33rd annual Stillwater Community Thanksgiving Lunch celebration at the First United Methodist Church’s Family Life Center located at 400 W. 7th Ave. on Thursday, November 23.  Lunch will be served free of charge from 11:30 a.m. – 2:30 p.m., and food options will include turkey, gravy, mashed potatoes, stuffing, pie and much more. OSU students staying in Stillwater over the Thanksgiving break are encouraged to dine with the community and volunteer their time.  Christina Morrill, real estate agent at United Country Real Estate and Auction, has served on the organizing committee for the event for three years, since the retirement of Pat Dorr, who ran the event for 30 years. Morrill knew the celebration wouldn’t go on unless others volunteered. She and her husband Mike, along with Tony and Melissa Holt and Paul Priegal, answered the call to continue the lunch. Last year, they partnered with the First United Methodist Church of Stillwater and church administrator Wayne Wilczek.  “We called Pat and told him that we wanted to help,” Morrill said. “We didn’t want the celebration to go away, and we think it’s very important to the community.”  Morrill’s favorite part about the event is seeing everyone come together. She said widows, widowers and older couples often show up to celebrate in their Sunday best.  “It’s not just for people in need,” Morrill said. “We have a lot of international students attend who’ve never experienced this kind of event, and they’re probably some of the most grateful.”  Last year, Morrill said they served more than 1,000 people, and they made over 200 to-go orders for people who could not leave home and those staying in the hospital. Students help serve food, as well as sit and visit with the older residents to keep them company.  “We never turn a volunteer away,” Morrill said. “We really try to include as many people who want to be involved as possible. Even if the sign-up sheet is full, students can come and the coordinator will find them a job.”  To volunteer, go to www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0b44aaac29a75-stillwater, and sign up or visit Stillwater Community Thanksgiving Dinner on Facebook for more information.  By Shayla Terrel
