The OSU Alumni Association's Legacy program is designed to educate future Cowboys and Cowgirls about Oklahoma State by providing age-specific gifts throughout their childhood. Our definition of a Legacy is any child between the ages of birth and 16 "lucky enough" to have one or even two parents or grandparents who are current members of Alumni Association.

Legacy Gifts

During different stages of childhood, registered Legacies will receive FREE gifts pictured below! Gifts will be mailed either to the address of the Alumni Association member or the Legacy's address if provided. In order for Legacies to receive each gift, the member must stay current on his or her Alumni Association dues. All Legacy gifts are age appropriate and therefore cannot be retroactive.

Benefits of the Legacy program are free to all members, but a Legacy's parent or grandparent must complete our Legacy registration form in order to receive full benefits listed below.

If you are a current student at OSU and would like to notify us of your Legacy status, please complete the Current Student Legacy registration form at this time.


If your Legacy is already registered, you can update his or her mailing address with the Alumni Association so Pistol Pete's gifts are sure to be delivered to the right place!

Grandparent UniversityThis unique, intergenerational learning experience is held twice every June. Each three-day session is a fun-filled experience actively engaging kids in academics at OSU while creating memories for grandparents and their grandchildren. Participants enjoy a true OSU experience staying in dorms, dining on campus, attending an OSU pep rally and graduating.
Legacy Weekend A special two days for OSU Legacies in high school and their parents to learn about OSU's rich traditions and history. The event is planned and presented by the Student Alumni Board and affords a chance for students to have their questions personally answered by SAB members.
