Oklahoma City - An OSU Degree in OKC.

Cowboy Connect Carnival set for May 29!

Experience the fun and festiveness of a summer carnival – while learning about educational opportunities at OSU-OKC!

Oklahoma State University-Oklahoma City will host the Cowboy Connect Day festival from 4 p.m. – 7 p.m. on Wednesday, May 29. 

The event is part of the Reach Higher initiative, which aims to help Oklahomans return to school to finish a degree. The carnival will allow possible returning students to learn about educational opportunities while enjoying food, games and interaction for the entire family.

Hadley Griffith, director of recruitment at OSU-OKC, said the event will feature snow cones, bounce houses and much more.

“Think summer carnival – bring the family, bring plus ones, bring your neighbors, your neighbors’ kids, your neighbors’ friends!” Griffith said. “We want everyone to come to campus and see what could it look like to be a college student at OSU-OKC.”

There will be staff on hand from various departments to answer questions about how to attend OSU-OKC and what many of the programs, clubs and experiences are like. 

“If you believe that college is for you, we do too,” Griffith said.

The carnival will be held in the parking garage on the north side of the OSU-OKC campus, when you enter campus on Henry G. Bennett Drive off Portland.

If you have questions about FAFSA, or the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, there will be financial aid experts on hand at the festival to help with questions about the form. 

If you can’t make the carnival, FAFSA aid is still available on campus Monday-Thursday from  8 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on the OSU-OKC campus in the Student Center.
