Cameron University is recognized as one of the finest higher educational institutions in Oklahoma.

Once at the edge of a city, Cameron University has been engulfed by Lawton, Oklahoma, a growing city with a population around 111,000. The city offers cultural enjoyment through the Lawton Philharmonic Orchestra, the Lawton Community Theatre, the Museum of the Great Plains, and various art shows including the Arts for All Festival in the spring. Everyone enjoys the International Festival each fall with ethnic entertainment, scrumptious food, bargain shopping, and information booths from over 20 countries.
Lawton's neighbor, Fort Sill, joins people from around the country and across the world as the nation's field artillery center. There students can experience the history of the West by visiting the holding cell and grave of Geronimo, the famous Chiricahua Apache warrior.
Just northwest of Lawton, students can enjoy the relaxation of the Wichita Mountains Wildlife Refuge. Camping, hiking, fishing, and other recreational activities offer students a weekend break from studying. Or bring your books along and peek up every once in a while to catch a glimpse of the deer, birds, elk, and buffalo that abound in the Wichitas.
