President's Commencement Welcome Message

Congratulations! May 12 and 13 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 2023,


Let me be the first to congratulate our degree candidates for Oklahoma State University’s upcoming commencement ceremonies. We hope your family and friends will join us to mark the momentous occasion of the Spring 2023 Commencement ceremonies to be held May 12 and 13. 


On behalf of the faculty, staff and university leadership, there is nothing more gratifying than seeing our students walk across the stage. We’re proud of your accomplishment and know it required resolve, hard work and determination to reach. You’ve finished what you’ve started, and you’ve done what’s right even when it was hard. Well done, Cowboys. 


Take the Cowboy Code and that strength of character with you as you walk across the stage and into the next phase of your life. Go into the world and make a difference. And remember, no matter where in the world you wind up, you will always be a member 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
