Construction of the OSU-Tulsa Signature Gateway is part of an “oranging-up” effort and increases the university’s connectivity with downtown Tulsa.

Tulsa’s downtown skyline now includes a bright orange Oklahoma State University presence.

“This project will clearly display OSU’s presence downtown and unequivocally establish our position in Tulsa,” OSU-Tulsa President Howard Barnett says of the university’s new Signature Gateway.

The 70-foot-tall structure, emblazoned on all sides with illuminated OSU logos, is part of OSU-Tulsa’s “oranging up” efforts in the city.

Read more about the Signature Gateway in the spring 2014 edition of STATE magazine on the OSU-Tulsa website.

Shelter locations available in the event of severe weather

While severe weather season has been mild so far this year, it is important to remember that strong storms and tornados may still happen. In the event of severe weather, shelter locations are available on campus.

OSU-Tulsa rarely closes. Campus officials monitor weather conditions and take action accordingly when severe weather is indicated. In the event of a tornado warning, seek shelter in the following areas, unless otherwise directed:

  • Main Hall: 1100 wing, 1300 wing or 1400 wing restrooms (lower level).
  • North Hall: Conference Center (includes the B.S. Roberts Room and North Hall 153, 155 and 156).
  • Auditorium: Restrooms in the auditorium lobby or the Conference Center in North Hall.
  • Administration Hall: First floor restrooms and other rooms away from windows.
  • Helmerich Research Center: First floor interior restrooms adjacent to the atrium.

Review the OSU-Tulsa guidelines for severe weather to determine the best action to take and get additional safety tips.
