A good comparison and role model for OSU should be the University of Nebraska system.  They have the main campus in Lincoln but have the urban campus in Omaha with 15k+ students as well as the medical school and health sciences center.

And their campus in Omaha is ~ 92 acres:

 I believe OSU Tulsa lays claim to 200 acres north of 244.

So it would be appropriately sized for 25,000+ students.  If there is a plan for that, I'm all for it. Publish the plan, put in action, use the land. If you're going to have 15k students, then it seems 100 acres works well enough for UN of Omaha. Sell/lease/develop the other 100 acres to fund your expansion and lets go!

Lots of changes potentially coming for Greenwood/Brady Heights.  Glad they finally realized OSU doesn't need 200 acres and can grow on its existing footprint by infilling parking lots.  I personally would love to see more brownstones like the ones by Centennial Park in the area west of MLK mixed in with single family homes that match the character of Brady Heights (front porches, alley garages, etc).

More than three decades later, OSU-Tulsa is charged by law with providing a comprehensive public university for Tulsa and the surrounding area. Only OSU and Langston are on the campus today.

Peters said the city and TDA will engage in a “very comprehensive development process to ensure that we’re listening to the citizens of that area.” He added that changes in higher education and redevelopment downtown and in the former Brady District (now known as the Tulsa Arts District) gave the urban renewal discussions more meaning.

“Maybe if downtown and Brady had not developed like it has, we wouldn’t even need to be talking about this,” Peters said in an interview after the vote. “But here we are right across the highway from the new OK Pops, from Cain’s Ballroom, just all of the positive things that have taken place.

“It’s really an unusual opportunity for the city to offer up to developers a substantial portion of the land that has great access. We hope that we’re able to find developers and lay out some comprehensive plan that helps downtown, helps the Brady and especially helps north Tulsa development. That’s the big goal we have here.”

Agreed.  I have a good friend who lives in an older brownstone type apartment smack in the middle of Brady Heights.  I love that neighborhood and if there were a way I could move to it I would but currently live in a house in Clarland Acres that's paid for.  Brady Heights has character and the single family dwellings there with deep front porches are awesome.

Virginia Tech is opening a new tech and engineering-focused campus near the new Amazon HQ in Arlington.  This will be a urban campus as a counter-part to the flagship Blacksburg campus in SW Virginia.  This would be a good case study for OSU, a fellow land-grant institution, in how to approach their urban campus in Tulsa.

Quote
Tech’s Blacksburg campus will also see growth from the announcement, Sands said.

The university plans to add 2,000 undergraduate students who will work in software engineering and computer science to add to a pipeline from Tech to Amazon. The company is already a top 10 recruiter of Virginia Tech students, said Julia Ross, the College of Engineering dean.

Sound familiar? 
Quote
Tech already has a robust presence in the region with seven locations and about 160 faculty. The school also draws many of its students from the area and estimates it has 60,000 alumni in Northern Virginia.

Even a fraction of this would be transformative for downtown
Quote
The campus will feature the following:

300,000 square feet of academic space and cutting-edge R&D facilities.
250,000 square feet of partner space dedicated to startups and corporate facilities.
350,000 square feet of housing space for students and faculty.
100,000 square feet of retail and support spaces.
