4 College Sophomore

Majors: As a psychology major, hands on activities are very important to me and for me and OU does a wonderful job of keeping options and events open for students. There are many different studies in which students can participate, many guest speakers, and an abundance of internship opportunities.

College Sophomore

Majors: I have never been involved in any internships, apprenticeships, or student teaching positions, but I am more than confident that I would have very little trouble finding opportunities for these things on campus.

2 College Sophomore

Greek Life: If I were apart of the Greek system, I would probably say that Greek life on campus was wonderful, but since I am not, my response is negative. Although it may not be true, it definitely comes across as though students involved in Greek life have more opportunities than those who are not. The non-Greeks on campus generally see Greek students as snobby, cliquey, and spoiled.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Strictness: Campus strictness is difficult to describe. There are many rules with severe consequences upon violation, but the campus staff leaves many opportunities to still break the rules without getting caught.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Living in the dorms is both great and awful. The close proximity to classes is a wonderful thing that I greatly appreciated, However, living in the dorms is essentially a guarantee that you will not have any privacy for the next 2 semesters.

5 College Sophomore

Local Atmosphere: Norman, OK is a wonderful city. There are so many different places to eat, have fun, and hang out without going broke.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty of different ethnic restaurants as well as classic burger joints, but what makes the off campus restaurants so great is that there are a large number of restaurants that offer a wide variety of food options from all different cultures.

4 Recent Alumnus

Facilities: There are a lot of active students. The facilities are always busy and the majority seem focused-specially grad students

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: There a a lot of gays and lesbians and I haven't seen any problem with anything.

4 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: There are a lot of Greek houses and most of them form the biggest groups at OU. I am not a Greek student but I don't feel any difference in treatment.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: There are many students who dress attractively and look nice at all times. There are also athletic students who don't care to dress up everyday there are also poor students who cant afford to dress up every day. I don't think people should be judged by the way they look or dress.

4 College Junior

Academics: I love my major and i love what i am studying but it can be a little hard to handle at time because I am paying for my own school so with my workload and also all the hours i am enrolled in at school it is hard to make time for studying.

4 College Junior

Academics: Academics offered at my school are awesome the professors and curriculum really help me to learn and understand in depth what im studying.

4 College Junior

Campus Strictness: Rules can be very strict on campus but as long as you abide by the rules you stay under the radar.

5 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Norman OU campus is located in a lively spot where you can always find something to keep you busy and entertained.

5 College Junior

Facilities: A lot of students use all the campus facilities including athletic centers and libraries. Some students even use the campus as a social place to just hang out with friends.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: There are many many students involved in Greek life but there's also many who aren't. I have noticed that most Greeks treat non-greeks with lesser value. They don't include non-Greeks in many of their social events.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a huge variety of places to dine in at or even fast food. Its very convenient and most of it is affordable for average college students.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: I always feel very safe on campus because there are usually always people around, I'm hardly ever alone. Even if I am by myself I usually always see a campus police man or vehicle walking around.

College Junior

Nightlife: I do not live on or around the campus area. I do not know about the party life or the clubs around and nearby.

5 College Junior

Majors: I have not had one yet because I have not really had the opportunity yet. But i know people who have and they have enjoyed it very much.

3 College Junior

Majors: I have not applied to get into the health science program for speech pathology but I plan to do so in the next couple years.

5 College Junior

Campus Dining: This campus provides some of the absolute best services.

4 College Junior

Diversity: There are very many different organizations and groups which helps meet the diversity needs for each individual on campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors are great and the courses are always relevant.

OU is an excellent choice for students who are undecided on their majors because it truly offers a wide variety of fantastic programs in every field of study, allowing students time to explore different classes and change their minds. The campus environment is great, too. There really is a place for everyone, no matter how strange your interests may be, and what really counts is the fact that the people that run the random clubs and organizations on campus want you to be involved, to have a good time, and to grow as a person. College is about experimenting and learning about oneself. OU provides its students with the means to do so in a safe situation. The majority of students are very satisfied with their time spent at OU. They feel that the small town of Norman offers a true college experience, along with the ability to give back to the community. Most feel that people in Norman are genuinely friendly and, for the most part, down to earth. The academics at OU are strong, and, generally speaking, the professors are understanding and qualified. Although there are some aspects that could use improvement, like parking, OU offers many great perks that make up for the minor inconveniences. OU has a strong athletic tradition, and the facilities available to students and athletes alike are top-of-the-line. There are numerous things to do, depending on what or with whom you care to do them with. Ultimately, what makes OU such a great place was different for every student, which only proves that OU truly does have something for everybody.
