OSU Named One Of The Healthiest Colleges In The Country

Posted: Updated:
STILLWATER, Oklahoma -

Oklahoma State University was named one of “The Healthiest Colleges in the U.S.” by website greatist.com. Greatist.com listed 26 universities across the United States. 

OSU made the list "for its dedication to student health as well as its unique student health and wellness programs," according to an OSU news release. 

OSU was acknowledged for health efforts in student nutrition, fitness and mental health.

Two of OSU's unique programs were highlighted as two unique campus approaches to physical and mental wellness.

Camp Redlands is located 10.5 miles from the OSU campus and hosts many fun runs and activities throughout the year.

The OSU Pet Therapy Program, Pete’s Pet Posse, was mentioned for its efforts in “students’ emotional wellness.” The therapy dogs are used to comfort students and provide affection in times of students’ stress. 

When it applied to be considered as one of the top 26, OSU highlighted the OSU Choose Orange program, cooking class opportunities, fitness classes, workout facilities, on campus health services, student counseling, stress management and other health and educational programs. 

Greatist.com said its “rankings take into account many criteria, including but not limited to special dietary options on dining hall menus, number of fitness classes offered, and available mental health resources.”
