College Junior

Transportation: I am not quite sure how the transportation options are because I brought a car to campus. I have heard many complaints of the lack of options to get anywhere in the city so I assume that the school needs to step up in those areas.

Transportation: Free shuttles are offered with sign up to and from airport and events.

At ORU, all students who are single and under the age of 25 are required to live on campus, so there are no issues with trying to find public transportation between your apartment and campus. The only time you will need transportation is when you want to leave campus for entertainment purposes or grabbing a bite to eat if you want. If you don’t have your own car, it is fairly easy to find a friend who will go somewhere off campus if needed.

On campus, no transportation other than walking is needed because the campus is not that large. On average, the longest distance a student will walk on campus is between the aerobics center and dorms, and this is about a quarter of a mile. The University does provide shuttles to and from the airport during breaks.
