Nothing Like Traveling Right Out Of Your Backyard

The 7 Wonders Of Stillwater, Oklahoma

Everyone knows about the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World, such as the Great Pyramid of Giza, as well as the 7 Wonders of the New World, which include Petra and Machu Picchu. However, how many people take notice of the 7 wonders that exist in Stillwater, Oklahoma. There's a reason people flock to Stilly, so here is my list of what I consider to be the 7 Wonders of Stillwater.

1. Boone Pickens Stadium

Home of the Cowboys. Here comes Bullet. Some of the many phrases you'll here within the walls of this stadium. Attending a football game as a student, or even as an alum, will be one of the best experiences during your time in Stillwater.

2. Student Union

One of the nicest student unions in the nation. This will be the place where you will spend most of your time, whether it's studying, grabbing a bite to eat, shopping or just catching up with friends. The Student Union will always be the place to be.

3. Washington Street

When you're 21 or older, The Strip is the party of Stillwater. But even during the day or when you're not of age, The Strip is still full of places to eat and little shops full of OSU and Stillwater apparel.

4. Boomer Lake

A great place to run, bike or walk. Some of Stillwater's beautiful sunsets can be spotted from this iconic locale.

5. Colvin Recreation Center

Upon renovation in 2004, the Colvin (aka Swolvin) reopened to the students and faculty with its new 240,000 acres of space. The Colvin is open all-day every day to accommodate all of its patrons schedules. Whether you work out twice or day, or barely at all, the Colvin will be a beneficial due to its variety of equipment, friendly staff and overall goal of helping the Stillwater community be engaged.

6. Eskimo Joe's

Cheese fries, cheese fries, and more cheese fries. Eskimo Joe's is a once in a lifetime experience for all students, faculty and staff at OSU as well as people visiting Stillwater. After all, it is the original and nothing is ever as good as the original.

7. Tumbleweed Dance Hall and Concert Venue

Open Fridays and Saturdays, Tumbleweed is the place to be if you want to show of your moves. Full of laughter, drinks, and good music, there's a reason Tumbleweed is on this 7 wonders list as well as the Stillwater bucket list.

Pop Culture Needs More Plus Size Protagonists

When almost 70% of American women are a size 14 or bigger, movies like Dumplin' are ridiculously important, while movies like I Feel Pretty just feel ridiculous.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.


Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.


I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.
