Classes are easy and teachers are nice! Of course there are some who aren't, but the nice ones are more prevailing. The only thing is if you transfer in anything be persistent about registrar's and admissions to actually let those credits transfer in. Also be aware that there is class fees they don't tell you about until you are half way in the semester and you can't register for next semester. So basically be prepared for "adulting" A LOT right off the bat(I mean its college so you had to know that was coming). Also make sure to get a whole bunch of scholarships so you can not fret about financial stuff and enjoy the college life and things like partyfestival,the random dancing events, and (if you live on campus) the brother-sister wing events(which are totally awesome and a great way to connect and socialize)! Also best meal plan to get is the 10 days a week and $350 sodexo bucks because it literally lasts you a semester and saga(cafeteria) is on and off good with food!

At Oral Roberts University has been a tremendous blessing to me. From the founder's vision-Oral Roberts, to the teachers. I have never meet so many polite, kind, caring, teachable, understanding, loving, sensitive, generous, staff in my life. They all believe in excellence and equality. I have thank the Lord every week for allowing these teachers to be apart of my life. From day one, I have learned so much, in which I have shared majority of my studies with friends and family.

Being 44 years of age, I was very nervous about going back to school, but I want to be an example to my kids to complete their education. Education now is so important and why not let it begin with them seeing "mama" complete my degree.

This school is the 'BEST SCHOOL I HAVE EVER ATTENDED!" I will welcome everyone to be a part of this great ministry. Because that is what it is. A school of excellence and wholeness. Being whole in your spirit, soul and mind. I love it!

Blessings,

Yolanda

Excellent School of Business – Oral Roberts University has great business professors and high academics. Some of the courses are incredibly challenging, but very worth it. Senior paper is particularly challenging, allowing students to present business ideas in front of a real group of investors, write business plans for their own businesses, and even provide business consulting for local establishments. Prepare to grow!
