A brief description of the institution’s main campus and other aspects of the institutional boundary used to complete this report:

The entire campus located at 900 N. Grand Avenue is included in this report (NOT including college-owned housing and land in the immediate neighborhood whose utilities are controlled by leasors). An area known as the Lake Campus on Lake Texoma is also included (the college leases the Lake Campus from the Army Corps of Engineers, who oversee Lake Texoma). Additionally, five field sites used for biological and environmental research are also included in this report. The most notable field site for the purpose of this report is the Clinton and Edith Sneed Environmental Research Area (also known as Sneed Prairie).

Which of the following features are present on campus and which are included within the institutional boundary?:
Present? Included?
Agricultural school No No
Medical school No No
Other professional school with labs and clinics (e.g. dental, nursing, pharmacy, public health, veterinary) No No
Satellite campus No No
Farm larger than 5 acres or 2 hectares No No
Agricultural experiment station larger than 5 acres or 2 hectares No No
Hospital No No

The rationale for excluding any features that are present from the institutional boundary:

We do not have an "agricultural" experiment station or a farm, but we do have five ecological field sites which are representative of local ecosystems. Included in these sites is a 100-acre prairie restoration site, which is on an old farm. At this site there is small building that is solar powered and uses a rain water collection system.
