Nightlife: I don't party on campus. I only have time to work and study. When I get free time it is usually spent with family and friends away from campus.

3 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: Diversity is abundant, but also homogenous at the same time when it comes to religion and sexual orientation. Oklahoma is the Bible belt....nuff said

3 Recent Alumnus

Guys & Girls: Most people are associated with the greek life and really don't deviate from their party circles. This is usually the case, but not always.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: The religious studies department is wonderful! All of the staff is incredibly helpful and nice.They all want to see you succeed in all your scholastic endeavors. There is also scholarships offered through the department and study abroad courses geared specifically towards religious studies students(i.e. archeological dig site in Israel).

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: There is a lot of variety and wonderful professors who genuinely are concerned with student success. The workload is difficult but necessary in order to gain higher understanding of one's chosen field of study.

3 Recent Alumnus

Local Atmosphere: Oklahoma is often referred to as "Native America", and there isn't a lot to do besides visit Native American cultural centers (aka casinos). It's flat prairie out here and there aren't a whole lot outdoor activities.

3 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The classes and professors were most excellent! The social aspect to the university was okay, but perhaps it's because I didn't have the time or money to pledge to a sorority and create a larger social circle.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: The alumni network is very active and thriving. They're always keeping the alumni up to date with current news pertaining to OU. The degree value from this school I would say is prestigious and well-respected by prospective employers and graduate schools.

3 Recent Alumnus

Greek Life: In my opinion, the Greek lifestyle at OU is rather obnoxious. It becomes more about parties than studying or getting good grades. The large greek student body (which is about 70% greek) creates a cliquey atmosphere (again, in my opinion). I've personally had to work my butt off through college while maintaining a job to pay for expenses/bills. It's frustrating to see wealthy, affluent college students living off of their parents' money in these lavish greek houses while barely getting by with decent grades.

3 Recent Alumnus

Off-Campus Dining: The off campus options were cost effective but mostly fast food chains.There are some restaurants (i.e. ihop, red robin, teds mexican food) that are sit down type restaurants while also being college friendly cost-wise.

3 Recent Alumnus

Campus Strictness: Mainly strict on being a dry campus and no drugs. Probably like any other college campus in the United States

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.
