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.

3 College Junior

Administration: Oral Roberts University is a Christian university so it tends to not be a party school. Each year, students are given the Honor Code to sign which states that the student is agreeing to not engage in getting drunk, drug use, or any sexual activity. If these rules are followed, your time at ORU is quite pleasant.

Athletics: OZONE Is Our School Spirit Group. Ozone is our spirit group. I had the opportunity to travel with the fan support this year to South Dakota. ORU paid and provided for us to go and watch our basketball team at the Summit League Tournament if we could miss class. The athletes at ORU are top-notch. Kevi Luper is very talented and has not only been playing for ORU but also women's USA team. The players and the fans are very close and have relationships with each other.

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!
