Orange Fridays

Orange Fridays

Members of the Cowboy family across the state, the nation and the world wear orange every Friday to express their loyal and true devotion to our beloved university.  This fall, we’re rolling out the orange carpet on the Friday before each home football game for high school juniors and seniors.  Come feel the energy and excitement building for our Saturday game day, while learning how you can become an OSU Cowboy! Don’t forget to wear your ORANGE!

You'll experience an informative Admissions presentation to learn everything you need to know about becoming an OSU Cowboy before heading out on an hour and a half walking tour of our beautiful campus and two residential life options. In the afternoon, you'll have many options to plan the day just as you want it. Options include the chance to explore academic opportunities (available for the morning session only), a "Cowboy Meet and Greet" with representatives from across campus and a scholarships and financial aid presentation. Finish your day on campus with an athletics tour or an appointment with our Office of Multicultural Affairs. We want to help you make the most of your day on campus! Don't forget to share your campus photos with us on your social media accounts using #visitokstate!

Please note, registration is limited so sign up soon!

Join us for Orange Friday and spend the day in a Cowboy state of mind!

Although the morning session provides a more robust experience, the afternoon session still gives students and families an adequate look at what life is like at OSU.
