2015 Distinguished Alumni
B.A. Foreign Languages (German), '92
Randy Couture is now as the "The Natural" in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) circles and a "jack-of-all-trades" as a writer, broadcaster and actor in the TV and film industries.
Randy is also an OSU Cowboy, having graduated from OSU in 1992 with a bachelor's degree in German. As OSU, he is more well known as a three-time All-American wrestler and two-time runner up in the NCAA wrestling championships.
However, it was his six years in the U.S. Army prior to his arrival in Stillwater that influenced his wrestling abilities and his desire to study the German language.
More recently, Couture has been involved with The Expendables film franchise and his Xtreme Couture MMA gym, clothing line and G.I. Foundation. Now retired from MMA fighting, Couture looks forward to continuing his roles outside the ring.
