5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My First Year Experince – I absolutely loved my year at ORU. The community of students and faculty was such a good way to start out my experience as my own person. Everyone is full of life and love for each other and for the community. There is never a dull moment there and I love every moment. Yes, even finals week. If I had to do it all over again, I would do it exactly the same.

Parking: Auto Travel – The proximity of the town is very close, within walking distance so there is no NEED for a vehicle. It is nice however to have one. Parking costs are very, very low and fines are reasonable according to violation. Parking is never a problem because of the large amount of spaces for resident students and commuters.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: ORU has a very well equipped team of financial advisers who are willing to help you get what you need.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Saga is our cafeteria. I come in, sit my things down, and find a bite to eat. I can sit my phone down and be away from the tables for a very lengthy time and no for a fact that it's going to be there when I get back. I'm never worried about things being stolen. I leave my room door opened and have not a care in the world.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: Soccer Games! I played soccer in high school and so I was excited when I found that we had a soccer team at ORU. The home games are always exciting. The fans are super supportive. It feels like a social event.

5 College Sophomore

Parking: I have never found an issue with parking. Our parking lot is pretty substantial for the amount of cars we have, so there really isn't an issue. Just pull in and park.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: It Depends. It depends on your personality I guess. Are you a social butterfly or a studious person or in between? There's a dorm for each.

2 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: On-Campus Living Is Preferred. The only reason people do live off campus is because they are a commuter or married or a graduate.

3 College Sophomore

Scholarships: Not Too Shabby. I feel it's a little rough in any university. ORU is always doing what it can though. It's not the best in the world but I'm thankful for what I do get. Plus the people are really understanding and helpful.

4 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: We Have an Honor Code – Everyone signs an honor code pledging not to partake in such things as drugs and as long as I've been here I've never seen it. But I could be wrong, I mean I guess if you hang with the wrong crowd it could be possible.

5 College Freshman

Academics: So Friendly – The profs at ORU are some of the most genuine people i've ever met. With this being my first time in Tulsa and first time at the school this year they've done everything they can to make me feel at home. They always have their doors open and can help you with any thing from class assignments to dorm problems to dating debauchles.

Off-Campus Dining: Cherry Berry – Cherry Berry is located in the square directly across the street from ORU- making it within walking distance. Cherry Berry is a self create frozen yogurt diner. It's affordable and delicious. PLLUUUSS with your ORU student ID the first 3 oz are free!- those 3 oz can go a long ways when you're broke

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: Drugs Don't Exist – Here, there is no open drug usage. There are instances of students using them (like marijuana) or smoking (which is against the Honor Code) but when it does happen, other students will not take part. Almost no one does either here.

5 College Junior

Scholarships: Although not everyone enjoys going through the financial aid process, the representatives here are always helpful and honest. I've even known some of them to help students research overlooked scholarships and grants!

3 College Junior

Campus Quality: Dorms on average are about a B+. It really depends on which dorm: Claudius and EMR are the more social dorms; Francis and Michael are for the more studious; Gabrielle can be either completely silent or absolutely nuts; and Susie and Wesley are the perfect balance of space, social, and study.

5 College Senior

Transportation: Oral Roberts University is right on the bus line and is centrally located that you can walk to many places such as stores, hotels, resturaunts.

5 College Senior

Majors: There are many Majors to choose from and graduates are highly recommended for great jobs.

5 College Senior

Diversity: Heaven on Earth – There are students from every country in the world. It is a wonderful atmosphere to be in.

5 College Junior

Academics: Smarty Pants – ORU has extremely knowledgeable professors. Also, they genuinely care about whether or not you're learning. They take extra time to help you if you need it.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Healthy Campus – ORU is all about staying fit in mind, body and spirit. They do a great job of making sure that there are healthy options in the cafeteria and also that everyone takes a physical education class every semester.

3 College Junior

Guys & Girls: Guys & Girls – The guys and girls on campus at ORU are alright. Nothing too superb. They are usually pretty chill but sometimes they fall into two extremes: players or non-daters. They either go dating crazy or they never date until they meet that one special person.

Scholarships: There are lots of opportunities for scholarships at ORU. The only time that things get messy is when it comes to actually qualifying for them 100 percent. Sometimes that can be tricky if you already have certain other scholarships from the university. The financial aid office is very open and willing to help you any time that it is open.

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Although off campus housing is available in Tulsa, ORU has ridiculous rules about who can live off campus and who can't. I found it very frustrating because even though I had people that offered to let me live with them and it would have saved me lots of money in loans ORU did not give me permission to live off campus.

5 College Sophomore

Majors: Applying for the Social Work program was easy. All I had to do was explain why I wanted to get into that program. It was a very peaceful process because there were no long, nerve-racking interviews, it was just a matter of my expressing interest and stating my reasons for that interest.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Seek and You Will Find! There are constantly activities taking place on campus for students to get involved in and they are advertised very well. There is always something to do and one can either do things with friends or meet completely new people. The is lots of diversity as to the types of activities and they are always fun and relaxing.

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!
