Oklahoma’s terrain is considered by the EPA to be the most diverse terrain in the United States. Covering nearly 70,000 square miles of Southern Central America, Oklahoma’s landscape boasts four grand mountain ranges, including the Oachitas, Arbuckles, Wichitas and Kiamichis, as well as several smaller formations and a portion of the Ozarks. Two-hundred man-made lakes make over one million surface acres of water and over 2,000 miles of shoreline. More than a quarter of the state is covered in lush forest. With an average temperature just over 60 degrees, the climate is varied throughout the state depending on that region’s terrain.
The state of Oklahoma has 43 colleges and universities, including the University of Oklahoma and Cameron University in Lawton.
