College can be expensive, and students can often worry about money when doing activities in Chickasha.

A college student, however, can take advantage of places and services that offer a special discount to college students. These discounts help alleviate some of the costs of enjoying life in Chickasha outside of the campus.

Without further ado, here are five places that offer a discount towards college students. Please note that all of these places will require students to present their USAO Student ID to prove that they are a currently enrolled student.


1. Chicken Express

Current USAO students can get 10% knocked off of their meal at Chicken Express. This excludes family deals or student specials that the restaurant offers from time to time.

Address: 1700 S 4th St, Chickasha, OK 73018

Phone: (405) 224-5800


2. Brandi’s Bar & Grill

This eating establishment located downtown offers a 10% student discount for college students. Happy hour also takes place from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. every day. Brandi’s is also in the process of coming up with special drinks for college students.

Address: 101 W Chickasha Ave, Chickasha, OK 73018

Phone: (405) 448-5022


3. BJ’s Pizza

Students can get a college special, which is a large one topping pizza (16”) at a discounted price. This is not a bad idea to split between friends.
