3 College Senior

Majors: I enjoy being in the Department of Psychology. The brain/how the mind works has always been something that I was interested in.

Facilities: OU spends a ton of money on campus aesthetics, and you can tell. It's a beautiful campus.

Diversity: OU preaches diversity, but it's not really all that diverse.

Campus Dining: I think OU has one of the best college Housing and Food departments; there are plenty of options available for people of varying dietary needs.

Greek Life: Greek life is pretty big here; there's a huge rush about 2 weeks before the semester starts.

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Housing: It's a college town, so prices are jacked up for not-so-great apartments. Landlords aren't the best, and Norman laws are geared to protect them, not the tenants.

4 College Senior

Athletics: OU is a huge football school, and it permeates everything on campus.

College Senior

Majors: I have not had an internship; they aren't that forthcoming for undergrads.

3 College Senior

Majors: It wasn't hard; I just declared my major and that was it.

3 College Senior

Academics: There's nothing particularly special about being a Psych major at my school. Our department isn't nationally-revered or anything, just your run of the mill department.

3 College Senior

Academics: The professors are really cool (well, most of them are), but you don't get the sense that they really care about you as an individual (as a whole). Most are concerned with their research or becoming tenured.

4 College Senior

Campus Strictness: I like the fact that the campus has initiatives to curve underaged drinking; I know that it is a problem on many college campuses, and the fact that they are proactive in taking a look on how to improve campus life is impressive.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: A lot of the guys here are not really into serious relationships and are just looking for a fun time.

4 College Junior

Local Atmosphere: Norman is a cool town. It has good food and there is a lot of things to do on the weekends. It's is also fairly close enough to places like Oklahoma City and Dallas so if you just want to get out of Norman for the weekend, you can go to these cool places.

3 College Junior

Campus Strictness: OU has gotten better about the no drinking policy on campus. Otherwise, you could get away with a lot while living in the dorms

3 College Junior

Campus Dining: The food at the dining halls is pretty good except the options that they do have are not necessarily the healthiest

4 College Junior

Nightlife: I like it because there is a variety of places that you can go that are pretty close to campus and not all of them require drinking to have a great time

4 College Junior

Majors: I'm an education major and I love it!

4 College Junior

Majors: It's pretty challenging. Not only do you have to take classes specific to the subject that you want to teach but you also have to take education classes as well as do observations and student teaching. It can get overwhelming at times but it is definitely worth it

3 College Junior

Scholarships: I think the financial aid at OU is decent. There is a variety of scholarships that students can receive, which makes paying for school a lot easier. My advice for applying for scholarships and financial aid is to apply for it early. The earlier you apply for aid, the greater the chance that you will be able to receive more money and get more scholarships.

4 College Junior

Facilities: The student life at OU is great. There is a variety of activities that you could participate in, ranging from Greek life to different clubs on campus. There is something for everyone here!

4 Recent Alumnus

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Huge variety of job opportunities at the job fairs!

4 Recent Alumnus

Nightlife: Campus corner is walking distance!

4 Recent Alumnus

Diversity: There is lots of diversity on campus!

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.
