About West

West is one of the most beautiful and comfortable neighborhoods on campus. It has a very nice playground that you and your family will enjoy especially before sunset. It is a safe and clean playground and you can watch your kids from your home window from most of the West apartments. Usually we have our social gatherings at the gazebo on the playground. West apartments are a short distance from the FRC and university laundry. Dumpsters are located conveniently close to each building. West neighborhood is a multicultural neighborhood with residents from all over the world. Our residents respect the different cultures and believe in each other. You will enjoy living among us.

The West Apartment Assistant

Taryn Salem

Bldg. 80, Apt. 7


My name is Taryn Lewis. I was born in Lafayette, Louisiana but moved to Tomball, Texas when I was five years old. I consider Tomball my hometown. I attended kindergarten through senior year of high school at Tomball Independent Schools. I moved to Oklahoma in 2014 to start my college education here at Oklahoma State University. I am currently pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering with a Minor in Mathematics. I also have a part time job with Subsite Electronics in Perry, OK as an Electronics Designer. I wouldn’t trade the Cowboy experience for anything. Oklahoma State has provided me with many educational opportunities. In my spare time, I like to craft, play tennis, and wakeboard. I also like to travel with my family because I appreciate the quality time with them.  I am married to my wonderful husband, Ty Lewis. Ty is a firefighter for Tulsa Fire Department in Tulsa, OK. Ty and I like to go dancing, play board/card games, and spend time with both of our families.

As an apartment assistant, I look forward to getting to know my residents through the various residential activities throughout the year. I also hope to contribute to making your experience here at Oklahoma State a very happy and successful experience. If any of you need anything don’t hesitate to knock on my door, give me a phone call, or email me and I will be happy to help you.
