5 College Junior

Athletics: Our football team has a huge fan support and you can see the school spirit when you go to a game.

3 College Junior

Computers: There are computer labs in some buildings on campus, however they can be full. So its better to have your own computer

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: The school has a varity of people, you are sure to make new freinds easily.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: The atmosphere is good. There are usually events going on the weekends.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The student population is so large that there are significant pockets of all types of people-- you will find people who are like you, and people who are very very different. In general, people are campus are an average level of attractive.

4 College Freshman

Majors: The Industrial and Systems Engineering profs are great!

3 College Freshman

Majors: Don't declare engineering unless you're sure it is what you want to do. It's a more difficult program than most other majors.

3 College Freshman

Greek Life: I am non-Greek, but I have a few Greek friends. It seems like a great social tool, but it's not for everyone (especially if you don't party.)

3 College Freshman

Nightlife: There are a decent amount of bars on campus corner, but they are typically divided up by age. Once you turn 21 you can also go to the bars in Bricktown (OKC) to switch things up a bit.

3 College Freshman

Transportation: If students chose to drink alcohol on the weekend there is a service called safe ride that is free for all OU students and will take you to where you need to go at night so questions asks. My only complaint is that you have to call them an hour in advance sometimes before they arrive.

5 College Freshman

Drug Safety: What's great about OU is that a good amount of students drink so if you want to, you can. Many students do not drink though, so it really is whatever suits you.

4 College Freshman

Computers: At the bottom of couch towers there is a computer lab which is really convenient for freshman. Most students have their own laptops so the labs are never too crowded.

4 College Freshman

Local Atmosphere: Everyone is extremely friendly and happy to be in Norman. It's not really a place I would want to live after graduation but it is a great college town.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I personally did not receive any scholarships and I had a 3.8 gpa in high school, but my dad talked to people in financial aid and helped me get more financial assistance that came in scholarships. I believe this incoming class should be getting more though.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I definitely wouldn't say that OU has the best academics. As long as you study and go to class you should receive an A's. Most students use this opportunity to spend time getting involved and volunteering since classes aren't so rigorous.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: OU is great at a variety of sports but of course football is the what everyone cares about most. What is nice is that you don't have to struggle to come by tickets for any of the events.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: There really is a place for everyone who wants to be in a sorority at OU. You can find really cool girls in all different houses but you typically find that sororities stick together.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: We have campus corner right off of campus that has a good amount of options. If you want to drive you can head to Main Street and find even more cute restaurants there.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I pretty much always feel safe on campus. There have been a few girls who have believed they have been given the date rape drug at frat houses, but whether anyone has or not I am unsure of.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: There are many off campus houses that tend to be a little more expensive. There are also a wide variety of apartments to chose from in all different price ranges.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I always wanted to go to school here, hopefully my finances will allow it.

3 College Freshman

Academics: I am in the early stages.

3 College Freshman

Scholarships: I am trying to get more financial help.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: I don' t notice it much.

College Freshman

Nightlife: I don't party so that does' t effect me.

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.
