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.

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.

Academics: Want You to Excell – When I came to Oral Roberts University i was nervous about being in a classroom because I had been home schooled all my life. However when I started classes I realized that although the teachers were hard and they knew exactly what they wanted from their students they were open and wanting to help. They truly want each of there students to be the best they can be and they do all they can to help each student develop their individual skills and abilities. All of my teachers have been wonderful and I have learned a lot from each of their different personalities.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Nature and Architecture – My school has beautiful gardens, plenty of trees and lots of green grass all over the place. These provide wonderful places to meet with friends, study, and simply take breaks from school. While nature is visible all around, we also see very intricate and astounding architecture which gives us students a feeling of success and professionalism which influences our attitudes towards school.

Academics: Experience Is the Best Way to Learn – I'm a Social Work major and I am loving the program up to now. The teachers know what they are teaching and even though they are hard they take the time to help because they want their students to be excellent social workers. All the teachers have worked in their fields and they give us practical projects to do that actually cause us to start thinking as Social Workers. Although the program is hard it gives us extra in-field practice and it thoroughly prepares us for work as well as for graduate school.

Campus Quality: Fantastic Unique-Tion – My school is in the process of building two new buildings and spreading our campus bigger than ever. It is epic and had a lot of attractive things in it. It will a new adventure to get in there.

Majors: Louder Than Preaching. As a music major, I committed to do my best and study hard. Combining words and music to make a song is challenging. Sometimes I complain about my major and almost give up. However, I never did. If I could do it all over again, I would enjoy every moment of my class. My goal is to make the best music to grasp the heart of people.

Guys & Girls: Cool People – At ORU, guys and girls are friendly and care for each-other like brothers and sisters. Everyone open their hearts and minds. Everyone work together to create a good community and school.

Transportation: Having Vehicle on-Campus Best Option – I wouldn't recommend public transportation in Tulsa; it would be dangerous, especially at night. Oral Roberts University does provide a shuttle free of charge to and from the airport during breaks to accomodate students without vehicles. Walmart, a clinic, and a few local restaurants are within walking distance. Sometimes students will post signs around campus asking for rides home to certain areas. The university talked about providing a few rental cars for students only, but this wasn't available when I was a student.

Academics: Great Real-Life Experience – Oral Roberts University School of Business provides lots of opportunities to get plugged into networking opportunities and meet all sorts of business professionals, from HR coordinators to CEOs to investors. Getting involved in clubs related to your major is a really good idea. The workload is a little difficult in upper-level business courses, but is manageable if you follow your degree plan-sheet. Make sure you take the classes in the correct order. Also make sure to do at least one internship, and two or three would be great.

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of Options – Tulsa has all the major fast food chains as well as dine-in restaurants. There is no lack of restaurants around the campus, and I would recommend Casa Bonita for great Mexican food. Ihop is pretty much the only restaurant open after midnight.

Campus Food: Saga Meal Tradition – The food is great at the dining hall, but can become a little repetitious. However, it has become a hangout spot for students, and sometimes they'll do special events there, such as carnivals where they offer free cotton candy and caramel apples, or international cuizine nights. Besides the dining hall, ORU also has a Chick-fil-A on campus, as well as a Freshens (smoothies), a coffee house, and a deli. They also offer flexible meal options in that you can balance the monetary amount of your meal plan between meals in the dining hall and the other on-campus options.

Academics: 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!

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Guys and Girls Are Rather Nice – One might enjoy a "Christian" atmosphere. If a person is looking for a spouse with moral value one could possible have hope in acquiring that. Although there are exceptions.

3 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking is somewhat difficult to those unable to park in "lower lot." Which is a parking zone for the privileged. Otherwise one has to park on "upper lot" which is a good distance away.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Easy Access to Amenities – The dorms among other amenities are always open at appointed times. I love the social atmosphere but somewhat show reluctance because of the religious nature of the campus.

5 College Senior

Drug Safety: It Is a Dry Campus – There is an honor code that does not allow drinking or drugs; however, as always, there are students involved. For the most part, it is a clean school.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: You Can Find Something You Like. There are always options, it may get repetitive after a year, but you will never be hungry.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Many Places to Visit – There are so many places to eat out because Tulsa is a college city. There are places to match everyone's style and mood.

4 College Senior

Parking: There is enough room to find parking, and reasonable locations for on-campus students and commuters.

3 College Senior

Scholarships: Process Could Be More Informative – I did receive a decent amount of Financial Aid, but there are many more opportunities you only hear about through other people when it is too late.

5 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: Many Delicious Food Places Close by – There are lots of food places right around campus. Sonic, taco bell, braums for fast food; Cheesecake Factory and other nice sit down restaurants close too.

4 College Senior

Scholarships: Many students have a full-ride. I know a lot of people there on scholarship. They try to work with you as best they can.

2 College Senior

Party Scene: There aren't very many opportunities to go out and party, but I know a few students who make to a couple clubs close to campus.

3 College Senior

Campus Food: Lots of Buffet Options, but Gets Old and Crowded – You can only eat in the cafeteria (4 meals/day) or the Chickfila or deli. But food outside the cafeteria is expensive.

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!
