3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: There are various housing options available. For an extra fee there are even some girls dorms available with a bathroom. They're kept pretty darn clean, not how you might picture a "typical" college dorm. The older the dorm building, the closer to everything else on campus, but I personally don't mind the extra walk.

Diversity: There is vast diversity on campus. We have nationalities from every country in the world.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: The spirit for the sports here at Oral Roberts is not a major part of the life on campus. However, it is not overwhelming and enjoyable.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: Not much nightlife to talk about. But if you were looking for nightlife, try TU.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking costs 50 dollars just for upper lot. And there's not much room.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Pretty good. I don't utilize it because I'm a commuter.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Pretty good options. Can't go wrong with a Chic Fil A and a Moe's. The dining hall is average, and usually has good food. Unless it's a chapel day. Then steer clear.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I haven't had to use any of the health services yet but from what I've heard they are good. And the security on campus is good and does their best to keep everyone safe.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: The parking here is very reasonable. It's a little bit of a walk but it's not a big deal.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: From what I've seen Tulsa is a good city. It's not quite the big city but it's no where near a little town either. There are coffee shops everywhere which is nice. And many different churches too. There are a couple nice museums to visit too.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: Oral Roberts doesn't tolerate drug use, so unless your seeking it out, you really wont ever see anyone using or effected by drugs.

2 College Sophomore

Transportation: There really isn't a lot of transportation options, but many students have cars and are very willing to get you where you need to go. But I would recomend getting a car if possible.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Almost everyone I know is recieving some money in scholarships, mostly from the Whole Person Scholarship. There are also plenty of academic scholarships based on your standardized test scores, and talent scholarships for art and music and such.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking on campus is extremely easy. The only thing that gave it an A- and not a higher grade is that not all of the parking lots are open for students.

5 College Senior

Scholarships: I love this college. Apply for everything offered.

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: In January of 2013, ORU built a new Student Center on Campus. It comes with Moe's Southwestern Grill, the largest Television screen in Oklahoma (we watched the Superbowl on it and it was amazing). It has pool tables, air hockey, and ping pong. It comes with two XBOX's and Wii's. It is a massive building and very modern.

5 College Senior

Transportation: ORU is a small campus that transportation provided by the school is only offered to and from the airport. The times are very gracious and you can always get a ride. Students are required to live on campus unless they are 1) Married; 2) Over the age of 25; or 3) Live in Tulsa with their parents.

4 College Senior

Administration: ORU is a private Christian university. We have a strict Honor Code regarding the consumption of drugs and alcohol on or off campus. Students are well-aware of this as early as the application process. No one who comes to ORU is unaware of its policies, and I believe that is fair. If you are made aware that you are not allowed to drink when you apply, then it is your choice whether or not you attend.

4 College Senior

Campus Quality: I have found the overall atmosphere of this school be extremely encouraging in developing who I am and what I plan to do with my life. I am exited to be a Senior and blessed to be a part of this amazing University. This school's atmosphere is so uplifting and edifying, that it is impossible to leave here with doubts about who you are and what you are meant to do in this world. The facilities are top-notch and the professor's are known around the world in their fields. My only point of "chaffing" is with the physical requirements in their Health/Phys-Ed courses. While I still pass and am working on improving myself, they do require a lot from you. By a lot, I mean your commitment, your desire to better who you are, and the ability to control oneself. These are important skill-sets to have, which is why I still give ORU an "A" rating.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: I'm a Social Work major and I love it. There a just a few professors in my major and they are outstanding. It's a small major, so I really get to know everyone.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: Everyone is so helpful. The process is really easy. And if difficulties come up, there are always so many people to help.

4 College Freshman

Weather: the varying weather makes the campus experience more exciting

3 College Freshman

Athletics: i haven't been able to see many of the games but from the ones I've seen they are really good.

5 College Freshman

Academics: The Behavioral Sciences department is amazing. It is a joy to be a part of such an excellent department.

5 College Freshman

Campus Quality: Campus life rocks. I have benefited greatly from living on campus, versus commuting.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Nearly everyone at ORU said that if they had to make their college decision all over again, they would still choose this university. Students give high marks to the strong Christian community here, and say that the professors and students are approachable, kind, and helpful. Another positive is the size of the school—it’s easy enough to get personal attention from the teachers, but the school is still large enough that you’ll regularly be able to meet lots of new, unique people.

Overall, Oral Roberts University is a great place for anyone who has a strong desire to become spiritually awake, intellectually alert, physically disciplined, professionally competent, and socially adept!
