4 College Freshman

Technology: Computers are GREAT!! Printing is slow sometimes, and during finals the computers are crowded.

3 College Freshman

Weather: The weather is highly unpredictable. It constantly changes. So you have to be prepared for whatever the day brings.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: There are plenty off-campus dining options that are fairly inexpensive. Conveniently ORU is near the many different restaurants and dining places. Many of the dining places give discounts to students which is also a plus.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Plenty of options for the students, so that they can get a solid education.

3 College Junior

Campus Food: Food is good most of the time, it sometimes gets boring, repetitive or just old. We have Sodexo Bucks that we can use at the on campus restaurants such as Chick-Fil-A or coffee and smoothie shop. The variety is nice.

3 College Junior

Technology: They are all very up to date. They aren't too crowded. The systems work smoothly and we have WiFi all throughout our campus

3 College Junior

Weather: The weather changes constantly. Sometimes the weather report will say one thing, and then it will be the complete opposite. It snows in winter, if it is enough snow, class will be cancelled. The summer months are very hot, and humid. Spring is beautiful, everyone is outside in the prayer gardens or just hanging out.

4 College Freshman

Party Scene: The nightlife is best for 21 year olds. And not those younger. A movie or two would be the best choice.

5 College Freshman

Transportation: The transportation is great. You can apply for the shuttle pick ups and if you have any specifications you can call them.

4 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: the food is really good and the food, dining and payment system work really well for me.

4 Recent Alumnus

Academics: The academic quality of the ORU Undergraduate Theology and Missions department is quite excellent. Our professors come from very diverse backgrounds and give an exceptionally diverse education. They are committed to equipping students to go on to graduate school as well as going into ministry.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: there's a lot of good looking people on campus. But chances are they are already taken or they are players. Good luck hunting for the rare ones.

Campus Quality: ORU really tries to put on a lot of fun events that are fun for students so there is often something going on somewhere on campus between Student Association events and events that various clubs and the Outreach office put on. There aren't very many places for students to just hang out on campus but a new building is being built now just for that very purpose. The fishbowl in between the girls and boys dorms is alright and the alcoves on EMR and Claudius are nice for just chillin with others. If you are in a more quiet contemplative mood the Prayer Garden is really nice and the Prayer Tower is super nice.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: You have to be on it when dealing with admissions.

4 College Freshman

Campus Food: Although the cafeteria doesn't always have the greatest food, there are lots of options of places to eat. "Saga" (the cafeteria) has Pizza, Salad, Dessert, Cereal and Sandwiches all the time. Then there is an international stations, a home cooking station and a variety section. Aside from Saga you have CityPlex across the street that uses your Sodexo bucks (bucks that come with your meal that has Subway and a Pizza place, you have the Deli which serves Pizza, Sandwiches, Wraps, Muffins and all kinds of other stuff, Chick-fil-A, Hava Java (coffee, pastries, like Starbucks), Freshens (smoothies, protein bars, fruit) and Internet Cafe (like Hava Java but open late). All those places take your Sodexo bucks which come with your meal plan. There's lots of variety and ways to make food that you will like.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: We were named one of the Top 10 Best Looking College Campuses. Due the dress code, most people dress pretty nice here at ORU. A lot of people (girls specifically) come here to find their future husband. Sometimes they can be a little crazy about it. Although the majority of students have very similar morals and values, there is diversity in many ways. If you want someone, you can find someone. If you don't want someone, you will probably still find someone.

Campus Quality: The facilities at ORU are definitely unique. We have some futuristic architecture swag for sure (look up some pictures of ORU). The prayer tower look likes it's from space. The one thing you will here from almost anyone going to ORU is how great the people are here. It's true, the people make the university what it is. I have found some great friends here and it has made my experience absolutely superb. There is definitely a community atmosphere here and it is easy to meet new people and make friends.

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!
