Legacy of ExcellencE


A legacy of excellence in Connors’ second century is not just a slogan, but a commitment to restoring, renovating and building an infrastructure that will ensure the long-term viability of Connors State College.

As we begin our second century at Connors State College, our formula for success has three distinct elements: 

  • To provide educational programs and activities that connect our students, faculty, staff and community with a more prosperous future. 
  • To provide state-of-the-art facilities as well as resources so that those we serve have the best opportunity to achieve excellence. 
  • To surround those we serve with people who care as much about their success as they do. 

A vital part of the health and wealth of eastern Oklahoma, Connors is an educational and economic driver for our region. We appreciate your continued support as we build momentum for Connors’ Second Century.
