The word is getting around about Pokemon Go’s catchable monsters – OSU-Tulsa is the place to be.

From Staryu to Golem, the virtual creatures are finding their way to campus. There are seven Pokestops where players can pick up items, earn experience points and capture Pokemon characters. The Pokestops are located at:

  • The Booker T. Washington High School historic marker between John Hope Franklin Boulevard and the OSU-Tulsa Bookstore
  • The campus guide between the bookstore and the west side of Main Hall
  • The clock tower/fireplace in the center of Main Hall Commons
  • The University Center at Tulsa plaque in honor of the late state Sen. Robert V. Cullison at the west entrance of Main Hall
  • In front of the Helmerich Research Center entrance on the sidewalk
  • The “Explore” sculpture at the Helmerich Research Center
  • OSU-Tulsa Library in Main Hall

OSU-Tulsa also boasts two gyms where players can level up or join a trainer team and fight to capture the gym from rival teams. One gym is located on the south side of the campus pond and the other at the courtyard fountain in the between North Hall and Administration Hall.

As always, be alert and pay attention to your surroundings while walking around campus. Play in well-lit areas, obey traffic signs and avoid restricted areas. And finally, have fun. Share pictures of the Pokemon you capture on campus to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram and tag #okstateTulsa. To learn more about Pokemon Go at OSU-Tulsa, visit the OSU-Tulsa Pokemon Go website.
