Doing Our Part for a Greener Tomorrow

Sustainability is an important part of Oklahoma State University, and we are dedicated to incorporating realistic measures to reduce our footprint on our planet.
Here's what we're already doing:
  • Using biodegradable cups and straws
  • Offering reusable shopping bags
  • Implementing à la carte dining concepts to reduce waste
  • Forecasting sales to order an appropriate amount of food

Ensuring Access to Basic Needs

We know having access to basic needs is crucial to our students' success while in college. That's why we partnered with the Department of Leadership and Campus Life to create Pete's Eats, an anonymous food recovery program where students can be notified of any leftover food after the close of business in three Student Union dining concepts.

Equipping You for the Future

Our student employees get more than just a paycheck while working with us. They gain valuable work experience, knowledge and skill sets that they can use in their future careers. Want to see for yourself? We're always hiring!

Other Initiatives

Choose Orange

The Choose Orange icon identifies healthier food choices based on U.S. Dietary Guidelines. Items that qualify for this program can be found at almost every campus dining outlet.

Healthy Dining Events

Our Registered Dietitian offers nutrition education programming and other events to help students learn how to live a healthy, balanced lifestyle.

Made In Oklahoma

We partner with local vendors from the Made In Oklahoma Coalition to host free sampling events every year, and select items are available for purchase in our campus convenience stores.
