Connors State College is a two-year state institution with two locations in Muskogee and one in Warner, OK. Though its foundations were firmly set in agricultural education, today this is a college with programs in many other fields. The college celebrated its centennial in 2009 and continues to expand while retaining its excellence in fields as diverse as livestock judging and nursing.
As a state college, the school has a history older than Oklahoma itself. While statehood was on the horizon, framers of the Oklahoma constitution agreed it was essential to set aside land for training and education in agriculture. Once the word got out, an intense competition arose between the cities of Warner and Muskogee. Even though Muskogee had the early edge, Warner pulled off a last minute coup and had the school planned for their town. One hundred and sixty acres were included for the campus.
Today, the school has gone beyond its agricultural roots and offers degrees in other fields, along with the opportunity for students to utilize distance and online learning.
