The Gateway Living Learning Program is a residential community designed for students enrolled through the NOC/OSU Gateway Program. You’ll live side-by-side with other students who are taking classes at NOC Stillwater and in the same hall as students taking classes at OSU where you’ll be provided resources that will promote your success in college. Together, you’ll participate in activities that promote student success at NOC Stillwater and successful transfer to OSU. You will strengthen self-awareness, social interaction, peer connections, academic excellence and leadership while giving back to OSU and the global community.
