Future Students Become Real Cowboys at "Highly Visual" OSU Summer Camp
Wednesday, June 15, 2005
• Gaining personal confidence by tackling the famous OSU Ropes Course is only one challenge mastered by incoming OSU students during Camp Cowboy.
• Lots of photo ops and good stories are available by covering this unique and popular pre-school orientation that is now in its seventh year. Upcoming camps are scheduled June 17-19, July 8-10, July 15-17 and July 22-24.
• The weekend camps teach hundreds of future OSU freshmen how to succeed personally and academically and how to become “real Cowboys” by learning the songs, traditions, and history of the campus they will call home for the next few years.
• Sessions include visits by professors, counselors, administrators, coaches, student athletes and cheerleaders. Dancing and money management are also on the agenda. Each night, the freshmen sit around a campfire by the lake and listen to talks from successful OSU alumni.
• Camp Cowboy is held at OSU’s Camp Redlands on the north shore of Lake Carl Blackwell. Take Camp Redlands Road north off Highway 51 west of Stillwater. Map available on request.
