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

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.

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.
