4 College Junior

Athletics: Soccer, baseball and basketball are the most popular sports at ORU. During the weekly chapels, the president will usually give the student body an update of the latest sport news and team victories. Our male basketball and baseball games usually receive most of the attention. Our workout facility, though not luxurious, has the necessary equipment to get a complete workout in.

3 College Junior

Scholarships: It has been very difficult for me to receive financial aid because of my overall GPA. I have learned that as long as I get my paperwork and forms in on time, the financial aid office is willing to work with me. My advice to future and current students would be to make sure they complete their FAFSA on time and apply for as many scholarships as they can. I also suggest meeting with the financial aid advisors; you never know what you may be eligible for!

4 College Junior

Guys & Girls: In my school, you will find a wide variety of guys and girls. ORU has students from 42 different countries and all 50 states. Because of the business casual dress code, most of the student body dresses well. The student behavior and actions are influences by the Honor Code that is signed at the beginning of every year. Because of the diverse population, there is a great variety of interests.

4 College Junior

Majors: I have learned a lot from my Business program at ORU. I am very happy I chose to get my degree from Oral Roberts and I would be more than willing to do it all again. After graduation, I plan on going back home and helping with the family business. By doing this I can gain experience and help expand the business to other countries.

3 College Junior

Majors: I have never done an internship but I plan on doing one the summer of my sophomore year. I have heard that most internships can be very time consuming, but they provide good hands on experiences.

3 College Junior

Majors: The Business program at my university requires that I have a GPA of at least 2.5. You must pass certain classes to be able to graduate. They are flexible and willing to work with you to help you succeed.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: ORU has students who come from all walks of life from all over the world to attend and receive the Whole Person Education introduced by Oral Roberts.

3 College Freshman

Party Scene: At ORU all students are asked to sign an Honor Code in which they promise to obey to take no part in drinking, partying, and doing other immoral things while attending the school. That being said, they do a great job at making the students feel like they can still have fun at night without doing anything to dishonor the amnesty code.

3 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: Most of the students are very relational. ORU emphasizes community among its students.

4 College Freshman

Academics: ORU provides great cirriculum that is challenging and interesting at the same time.

3 College Freshman

Technology: The computer labs have PC's and Mac's which accomodate those who prefer one or the other.

4 College Freshman

Academics: ORU has a great business school with professors who have worked in the field for many years. The professors are willing to help and provide students with many opportunities to gain real world experience.

5 College Freshman

Diversity: We have over 60 countries at ORU. It's a very diverse school with many different kinds of people.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: The dorms are fairly nice, but could always be improved.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Some of the buildings (Claudius and EMR) are old and are due for remodeling but the Towers dorms are pretty up to date and more spacious. Gabby is the newest and biggest rooms with key card/password access, they are girls only dorm.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There is a pretty good variety of places to eat especially on 71st street by around the mall and well as downtown. Restaurants range from fast food to really nice sit down dining places

3 College Freshman

Weather: It does rain there. Flooding does occur when it rains. You have to walk to other buildings for classes. The fitness center is a hike. Bring your walking shoes when you stay on campus. You will do a lot of walking.

4 College Freshman

Administration: Kids come in as early as 16. It is strictly enforced about no drugs, no alcohol, no smoking, and no dating/fraternizing. A dress code is highly enforced. Women have to look like women and wear dresses. Men must look like men and wear dress clothing. No facial hair is allowed on men. Can only live on campus up to the age of 25. So, "Make No Little Plans Here."

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: They are always on top of things and make sure you get the answers you need to hear. Very thorough on what is needed etc. I have not had any serious problems.

4 College Freshman

Campus Quality: They just built a student center. So associating with other people would be the best in improving relationships with one another. ORU helps you get to where you need to go.

4 College Freshman

Academics: My specific major is Theology: Church Ministries and you better love dealing with people because this is an indepth curriculum on dealing with people. Get beyond people and you will have conquered all the aspects of school workload, etc. Always major on what's important and stay focused on what your goal is.

4 College Freshman

Majors: I am not finished yet. But if I was I would be looking for a job either in my field or close to the field of study I graduated from.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Nightlife at ORU is very restricted. They believe that you should get a good night sleep. There is a curfew time to be in dorms. No smoking, no drinking, no drugs, and no wild parties; more of a community thing among all the on campus students. Accountability among one another is part of being there. There are chaplains and counselors around when you need them. Some of them live on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: In Fireside there is a huge dining hall and there are several place to get a variety of foods. I love the food there. Get the max on your school card. In the administration building there are several restaurants and your school card covers everything. Variety is a big thing, but so is taking care of your body. So I do know that there are restaurants that sell stuff not too healthy for you, but for the most part you do eat good there.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: ORU is very diverse. I would suggest you read the school catalog first before you make that decision. Also praying about your decision to attend ORU is the best way to find out what you and God together need to do. They are a Bible based campus and you do not have to be a Christian to attend, but following the rules is part of an honor code you sign when you attend the school. Richard Roberts was not a Christian when he first attended the campus, but he did become a Christian when attending the school.

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!
