OSU in Tulsa receives StormReady certification Wednesday

All are encouraged to wear orange to show their OSU Pride. StormReady certified campuses have implemented equipment and policies recommended by the NWS to receive advance warning of a hazardous weather situation such as a tornado, flash flood or ice storm.
