Susan Tolbart gave the Collinsville Chamber of Commerce a brief history of OSU-Tulsa. A consortium of several local colleges started in Tulsa in 1980. By 1999 the name on the campus (just north of Downtown Tulsa) was OSU-Tulsa and most of the other Universities had moved to their own local campuses (OU to 41st & Yale & NSU to Broken Arrow for example). The Tulsa campus of OSU has junior & senior level and graduate courses for a subset of the programs that are based at the main Stillwater campus. OSU-Tulsa partners with Tulsa Community College (TCC) for a smooth transition of students as they advance past their initial studies. There are currently ~2700 OSU-Tulsa students. A new president and an OETA TV studio are a few of the changes anticipated soon.
