Where to start: mediocre facilities for science students, exclusive, unsafe, lackluster athletics, Greeks, incredibly restrictive campus life. If you are a student athlete attempting a science degree, run far away from this campus. With a graduation rate of nearly one half, it is safe to say you are wasting your time here; most athletes will transfer by their second year anyway. Non-athletes will usually transfer because this campus has literally nothing to do. The city of Shawnee is a hotbed of crime with little to no commerce. In my first year, an armed suspect of literal grand theft auto attempted to hide out on our intramural fields. Academic rigor for the sciences is ridiculous. It's a common joke that this place is essentially Baylor University, minus the brand recognition. The instructing is terrible, so expect to learn everything from reading your textbooks. Most of the science department's staff is foreign, so if accents are difficult for you, stay well away.

Housing is great! Wow talk about proximity to classes, you could leave your room right before class or hurry back if you forget something! Residence life and community and discipline are a blast and spot on. God put us all together beautifully and discipline is used if necessary very well. The cleanliness is well also and anything that needs fixing is handled in a nice and timely manner. Space could be larger but it is a form not a condo, and roommate selection is lead by The Lord.

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.
