Congratulations! May 6 and 7 will be special days for you, your family and your university. We salute your achievement and invite you to participate in commencement ceremonies at Gallagher-Iba Arena on the day and time assigned to your college.


OSU President Kayse Shrum

Dear Class of 2022,


I am delighted to congratulate the second degree candidates of Oklahoma State University since I became president of OSU on July 1, 2021. It’s an event worthy of celebration, and I would like to extend an invitation to family and friends to join us for the Spring 2022 Commencement ceremonies to be held May 6 and 7. 


I can say as a university leader, there is nothing that compares to watching our students walk across the stage. It’s the culmination of years of dedication, hard work and a determination to succeed. Well done! We could not be more proud. Oklahoma State University graduates join the ranks of a long line of successful students who have gone before. No matter where in the world you might wind up on the journey before you, remember you will always be part of the Cowboy family. 


We look forward to seeing you and yours for the spring commencement ceremonies.


Congratulations, and Go Pokes! 


Dr. Kayse Shrum


OSU College of Osteopathic Medicine, Class of 1998
