The Oklahoma Osteopathic Association exists to advocate and ensure the osteopathic profession’s best interests are protected and maintained. The OOA values every osteopathic opinion. The following survey was sent to the OSU-COM first - third year osteopathic medical students*. The results are as follows:

H Would this decision affect your current commute/
.transportation to OSU-CHS?
I moved to my current living location based on how close it was to OSU-CHS and do NOT want extra commute time OR have to commute back and forth between campuses. Classes at a different campus would waste valuable productive study time in traffic as well as hinder the efficiency that is needed for success in medical school.
Would you support OSU-CHS leadership in the decision of looking into construction options available on the current campus?

in our tours given to prospective students is that we have all of our classes right here in one class. This is something that nearly every prospective student loves to hear. I feel that it would affect my decision, and from speaking to prospective students on a daily basis, I know that it would affect others as well.

you for asking for our “Thank opinion. This decision would
be horrible for the school as a whole. I don't know if I could even recommend this school to future students if this decision took effect.
