Following is a list of some of the general activities of the OSU Emeriti Association.
Monday Night Dinners
Held in the ConocoPhillips Alumni Center, these dinners are generally scheduled monthly (except during the summer months) for the first Monday of the month. Food is served buffet style, and the dinner concludes with a program, generally a speaker or a musical group. A social hour precedes each dinner. Current cost is $15 per person.
This activity provides hands-on experience pertaining to a variety of technology issues. The group meets at 1:30 on the second Wednesday of each month (except during the summer). Meetings are held in the ITLE Building on campus. No charge.
Making the Most of Retirement
Special interest group
This group meets for one hour at 1:30 on the third Wednesday of each month. Speakers present information about topics that fit into the following broad areas: finances, daily living, personal fulfillment and hobbies, security, and volunteering opportunities. In May 2013, this group began partnering with the Stillwater Public Library where the meetings are held (no charge).

Members of the OSU Emeriti Association serve as ambassadors by volunteering their time in several ways, such as handing out programs and assisting family members, friends, and graduates at OSU Convocation and Commencement ceremonies. Other opportunities arise on occasional basis.
Membership is restricted to 25 members of the association. If interested in joining, check with the chair of the club to determine whether openings are available.
A variety of tours are scheduled during the year, with some being just a couple of hours in length to overnight events. The cost of each tour includes bus transportation, some meals (usually), lodging, and, where appropriate, the admission charge.
