WOODWARD CAMPUS HISTORY
In an effort to improve access to higher education in
Northwest Oklahoma, the Oklahoma Legislature authorized the establishment of a
Woodward Campus of Northwestern Oklahoma State University in 1996. Since its creation in 1996, enrollment at
Northwestern-Woodward has grown from just over 100 students to serving more
than 300 students in the Tri-State area.
In May of 2002, Northwestern-Woodward housed its campus on the second
floor of the First American Bank building at 2220 Oklahoma Avenue. Local legislators earmarked $1.8 million for
the construction of a permanent campus site in.
Ground was broken on the site of the new campus building at 2007 34th
Street on November 8, 2006. On September
24, 2008 Northwestern Oklahoma State University officially dedicated the new
Woodward Campus building.
