4 College Junior

Greek Life: Greek life is good, I got to meet a lot of people I wouldn't not have been able to meet anywhere else.

4 College Junior

Athletics: There is a lot of opportunities to show your school spirit when it comes to going to varsity games or in intramural games.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The small campus and the professors make OBU unique because they really want to be there for you and help you succeed.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I absolutely love the professors here at OBU. They are personalable and dedicated to your learning and success in their class, and honestly in your over all success. I've always had professors who were easily accessible for questions tutoring or help.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I'm a nursing major, and we get our own job fairs twice a semester. The process is well organized always bringing in Some of the best hospitals and opportunies all around Oklahoma. I always feel very secure in my ability to find a job or internship with the help of our career counselor on campus.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: OBU has recently improved lighting all around campus to accommodate students requests in order to feel safe everywhere on campus. Our campus police officers are great, if you feel uncomfortable in any situation or don't want to be alone walking to class or to your car they are always close by outside buildings and their station is conventionally located in the center of campus.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: At OBU on campus living, you typically either get a newer (nicer) building or an original (older) one. As a freshman I lived in the first women's dormitory on campus, Kerr. Although it was not as nice as the new neighboring women's dorm, it was still clean and well kept. The atmosphere, I would argue, defiantly made up for the outdated feel of the building. I really enjoyed living there.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Greek life at OBU is nice in the way that there are different kinds of fraternities and sororities unlike the typical party centered ones at universities. There are a few disciple centered Greek clubs that do great community work and are well loved on campus along with your typical Greek life clubs. Although Greek life plays some important roles on campus, I feel it's not as highly expected at OBU. You won't be looked down upon or outcasted for not being involved.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Oklahoma Baptist University has a great athletic center commonly known as the "ROC." It provides athletes and students with access to a rock climbing wall, tennis cort, racket ball rooms, general work out facilities, a basketball cort, a track, and a swimming pool. Our swim team is exceptional, winning many national titles over the years, and we just recently gained a football team with great potential.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: OBU is a wonderful, Christ-centered school with a small world feel. The professors are both personable and dedicated to their students. Oklahoma Baptist university has a way of making its students quickly feel like home, while offering many opportunities to travel with Mission work all around the world. The university is great with connecting and helping the Shawnee community with multiple organizations working through mission Shawnee. I have personally been involved in a few of these organizations my freshman year and fell in love with both the Christ following leaders and the Shawnee community as a whole.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: This area of the campus is pretty good. There are campus police that are there to help and the overall health of the school is good too.

3 College Senior

Overall Experience: Overall I feel that OBU is a good school. There are time when it can be monotonous to go to chapels everyday, but it can good for students as well. The campus life is much more of students with a baptist background so there are not very many incidents that impact the school negatively. The majority of the students that go to OBU are there to finish with a degree and I feel that the graduation rate is very high. I still have one year to complete to earn my bachelors and have worked hard to do so at OBU because they push you to become a very educated individual.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: While going to OBU for two years now and a third in August, the campus housing has been relatively simple to become apart of. The new dorms that have bee built and the apartments that have been built are nice to live in and are instantly filled when school starts.

3 College Senior

Greek Life: Being a baptist school, the Greek life is not as prevalent as many other school. There have been a few sororities that have been created but not much has been done for it.

3 College Senior

Athletics: I played two years of varsity basketball for OBU and liked the facility and the equipment that was given to us to play. On the other hand it was evident that politics played a role in the athletic program. Athletics is a big part of the school and there are many sports that have been established as well as new sports that are being entertained by the athletic department to reach D2 requirement where sports are concerned.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: While studying at Obu, I have had a good relationship with my professors to help learn many different subjects within my field of study. There have been multiple times that professors have worked with me in situations that involved me completing homework or tests around my scedule. Overall it has been a good experience to be apart of a growing university.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Since I am still in college, I am not too familiar with the student career prospects. I do know the value of a degree from this school is one of high importance and admiration. An OBU degree is not taken lightly, and looks very well when you go to apply for jobs.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The overall experience of Oklahoma Baptist is a great one. The courses offered there are challenging, but you get a lot out of them. The professors at this school truly care about you as a person, and what the absolute best for you during school and after. They are always available for office hours to help guide you, or help explain things on a deeper level. The variety of courses offered is also a great feature to OBU. There are numerous class options, and there is surely something for everyone to love. The class size is perfect as most of your classes have around 20-30 students, with more students in the Old and New Testament and CIV classrooms. Overall, the OBU experience is a great one, and one with great admiration.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: I feel extremely safe and protected while on campus. The campus is well-lit, and there are police officers on campus 24/7 to make sure things are well protected. If you are walking alone at night on campus, you can call a police officer and have them go with you to your destination to make sure you arrive safely. Also, there are multiple security cameras on campus offering safety measures in that area as well. OBU is a very safe, protected, and well monitored campus who will do anything to keep their students safe.

4 College Junior

Campus Housing: I lived on campus my first semester at OBU. It was a great experience to meet new people and to be surrounded with people who are going through the same things I am. I lived in an apartment with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, a central living area, and a kitchen. The apartment had everything we needed, including a couch and chair, entertainment center, fridge, stove, and two showers. Although it was close quarters at times for 4 people, we all enjoyed living in our apartment.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Being a Baptist college, the athletics at the school are not the best they could be, because the best athletes don't want to pay a lot of money to go play a sport, they want to get school for free. With that being said, Oklahoma Baptist athletics are increasing in student involvement, team performance, fan support, and school spirit even since I have started attending. With our school being in the transition to Division II, the competition level is increasing which means the other aspects have to increase as well.
