Micah Scobey, OSU Alumni Association Denver Chapter President

Thursday, September 3, 2020

Micah Scobey had narrowed her college choices down to three. But once she stepped foot on Oklahoma State University’s campus, she knew she was home.

“OSU was definitely the place for me,” she said. “The people were so much nicer, and the campus was beautiful.” A first-generation college student, Scobey did not stray far from her hometown of Pryor, Oklahoma.

While at OSU, when Scobey was not studying, she was hanging out with friends or at athletic events. She was on several intramural teams that won championship titles.

One of Scobey’s favorite memories is a men’s basketball game when she was working the score table and calling media timeouts.

“It was 2009 or 2010 when we beat Kansas and rushed the court,” Scobey said. “I still have a little piece of the net they cut up.”

After graduating in 2012 with a degree in microbiology and cell and molecular biology, Scobey moved to Denver for a job and met Jennifer Glenn, who was leading the Denver OSU Alumni Chapter. 

When Jennifer and her husband, Jason, decided to return to Oklahoma, Scobey stepped up to serve as the new chapter president.

Scobey and the members of the Denver Chapter are heavily involved in hosting watch parties for OSU games, serving their community and bringing America’s Brightest Orange to Denver.

One of her favorite events is hosting watch parties at The Dive Inn for all alumni and friends to come together and cheer the Cowboys onto victory.

“The Dive Inn is like old Strip meets new Strip,” she said. “It is a little piece of Stillwater in Denver.”

As a chapter leader, Scobey connects people and helps others succeed in their personal and professional lives.

Scobey’s advice to recent graduates and young alumni is to network and remember that it is an achievement to graduate from college.

“Companies look to make sure you have a degree and were committed to your time [at OSU] and were successful in whatever you decided to study,” Scobey said. “I think that goes a long way.”
