My daily post theme for 2017 is on Colleges and Universities.
The plan for starting my blog back in 2014 was at the urging of fellow coaching colleagues to share posts on leadership and/or motivation. Somehow that idea got derailed and turned into daily posts on one theme for an entire year.
In 2014 my daily posts were on the “Beer of the Day”, 2015 it was “A Friend of a Friend”, 2016 I wrote about “North Carolina”, and for 2017 I will focus on “Colleges and Universities”.
I have been associated with colleges since I was 18 and I love them. I have coached/worked at four different universities and in my professional and personal travels visited 100’s more. Each college has something in its history that I want to share that to me make it unique or personal.

Name of University: Oklahoma State University
Location: Stillwater, OK
On Sunday a large number of college campus allowed their students to watch Super Bowl LI from the confines of their student unions. I got wondering who had the biggest. It appears that honor goes to Oklahoma State University.
Considered the largest student union in the world, the Oklahoma State University Student Union covers an impressive 543,411 square feet. Although it was first constructed in 1951, the Student Union has undergone extensive renovations in both 2000 and 2011 to improve its attraction to students.
The Union is home to a 550-seat movie theatre, art exhibitions, student lounges, the OSU Student Store, post office, athletic ticket office, and a food court filled with diverse dining options, including the luxurious Ranchers Club restaurant.
As if that was not enough, the Student Union also contains the Atherton Hotel, which provides 81 extravagant rooms for guests and serves as a living classroom experience for the Oklahoma State School of Hotel and Restaurant Administration.
