Overall ExperienceWhat's This?

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.

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.
