Campus Strictness: Our school does not allow drugs, tobacco, or alcohol which I love. They also don't allow opposite genders in the floors the only time they can visit each other is in the lobby downstairs; I love that also. They have card access and if you are a male trying to get into the elevator to go up into the girl's floors it won't let you and vice versa if you are a girl you can't go into the guy's floor.

Campus Strictness: One of the main things you must understand is the Honor Code. It is there to remind each student of the life that they should be living, in other words, to live like Jesus Christ, which is why there is a curfew, no alcohol and strict rules only to prevent what the enemy would want you to do in the first place. This is only a guideline to follow to give students a better opportunity to overcome certain habits and prevent the temptation to commit them again. It may sound horrible, but when you realize how the enemy can use anything to get you distracted, this Honor Code is merely a reminder of what we must do to stay focused and on fire for God.

College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: I have no personal reference to strictness or lack there of regarding campus strictness, except for policies as described in the student handbook.

Oral Roberts University has come a long way in this regard, and the administration has become much more lenient in the past few years, especially with the dress code. A little more than five years ago, students were not allowed to wear denim to class, and students can now wear “neat” jeans and flip-flops to class and chapel. And in 2009, male students were allowed to grow facial hair (neatly trimmed) for the first time in University history. Technically, ORU students are not supposed to wear T-shirts to class and must have a collar, but this rule has not been enforced lately.

All students who have live on campus have a curfew, but it was recently pushed back to 1:30 a.m. every night. As is the case with most Christian universities, all ORU students sign an honor code, which even appears on the application. The code states that students will not do any of the following: engage in premarital sex or homosexual relations, drink alcohol, use drugs or tobacco, lie, steal, curse, or cheat, among other things. All ORU students are also required to attend chapel Wednesday and Friday at 11 a.m. (no classes are scheduled at these times). But, overall, ORU is becoming more relaxed about its rules.

There are no coed dorms at ORU. The visiting hours in the dorms are 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. every other Sunday. It's not that bad, though, and students get used to it.
