Rogers State University and Claremore Main Street

Claremore Main Street and Rogers State University have created a partnership to strengthen the relationship between the institution and the business community, provide a conduit for student engagement and promote working and living in Claremore after graduation. With a focus on economic vitality, historic preservation and placemaking, the organization strives to secure downtown as the social and economic core of the community. Each fall, Main Street and RSU partner for Food Truck Thursday, a main kickoff event for the academic year. Students and community residents gather downtown for an evening of food, music, games and events. During homecoming, Main Street hosts a Paint the Town Blue event as businesses invite RSU groups to paint business windows with homecoming themes. Main Street also has purchased RSU flags to hang on light posts in downtown. Claremore Main Street has created a welcoming environment for RSU students that has resulted in many graduates remaining in the town after graduation.
