Back to the Books

After weeks of endless amounts of food and eggnog, reality kicks in once that December 31st ball drops and we’re back to the beginning of the year. Decompressing and recharging during the holidays is vital, but school is back in session here in Stillwater. Thousands of college students around the world begin their studies at universities during the spring semester. Parents flood these college towns, helping students move into dorms and clearing the isles at home goods stores. In Stillwater, enjoying local businesses is key, and Nook & Cranny Mercantile, a quick 6-minute drive from The Atherton, has everything you need for dorm decor. Or head to the Wooden Nickel for trendy finds. Classes at Oklahoma State University start January 17th, with a 'Welcome Back' reception at the Student Union from 6 to 8 pm. Parents, while you finish furnishing apartments and filling refrigerators, students can attend a Resume Walk-In event on January 22nd from 2 to 4 pm at the Student Union, where they can have their resumes and cover letters edited and revised to perfection, leaving you at ease knowing your kid is ready to start the year strong and full of opportunities. Go, Cowboys!
