4 College Sophomore

Technology: The computer lab is really good, the only downfall is that there is no cell phone service and you can't take food in.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: I wouldn't say public transportation is awesome from what I've heard, but I haven't really used it either. There is a bustop right by the Maybee center parking lot. ORU does provide shuttles to and from the airport for a few days around breaks. There's a Walmart across the street from ORU so a lot of students walk there for whatever they need (but people always tell girls to take a guy with them, especially in the evening). I do find it very convenient though to have a car on campus. Before I had one, I either walked to Walmart, or for church found someone who was going to the same church I was and rode along. There are a lot of nice people if you need a ride somewhere, but many people are also always busy with homework etc so I never liked to ask for that too much.

Campus Food: The food really isn't bad, but people get tired of eating at Saga (the main cafeteria) and complain about it sometimes. I think they just get homesick and complain more than they need to, the workers do a pretty good job. There is also a smoothie place and coffee place in the GC, main class building, which are both usually really good, and there's a Chick-fil-a and Internet Cafe under the cafeteria too which are good. I never have time for breakfast so I have a meal plan with 14 meals a week and $250 sodexo that I usually spend on coffee, Naked Juice, or sometimes go to the deli, also in the GC. They're about to open the new student-alumni building, which I heard will have a coffee place and a southwestern grill type place.

Drug Safety: The honor code at ORU, that everyone must agree to and sign when they come, says that no drinking, smoking, or alcohol is allowed. Of course there will occasionally be people who break those rules, and it is an open campus so I heard once of someone who came and was trying to sell a friend drugs. Other than a few isolated instances though, I would say the culture and rules keep things really quite safe as far as substance abuse, and there isn't that pressure to get into those things that you might find at a public school.

Academics: I'm studying engineering at ORU and most of the classes and professors are really good. This degree is definitely a lot of work, but I know the professors care about you learning your skills really well so you'll be hire-able after graduation. A lot of students who start decide to do something else after a while, but I think you find major changing in any department, and engineering is a big commitment. If you're determined and have a head for it though, it can be really rewarding. Most professors are really good about answering emails soon, and are available to help out and answer questions. One professor spent 2 hours in the engineering machine shop (which is a really nice machine shop) with me and some others helping us on a group project, and we didn't even have him in any classes that semester.

5 College Freshman

Majors: I plan to get an internship in the engineering field in which I study. Since the department is smaller, I think the faculty will be more available to help in finding an internship with me.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: The men's basketball and baseball teams are very popular on campus due to their success. The baseball team has won 19 straight conference titles and the men's basketball team is also very successful.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: The guys are cool and very friendly and easy to hang with. They always offer to include you in any activities that they are doing. They are a blast, but still conscientious about their studies.

The girls are good looking, outgoing, and easy to talk to.

5 College Freshman

Guys & Girls: I can honestly say that you will find the highest quality and best people on the ORU campus. For the most part, the boys are all gentleman. As a girl on campus, I hardly ever have to open a door myself. Guys and girls are very good looking, dress nice, and are polite and respectful. GREAT PEOPLE!

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: SAGA (the cafeteria) is really a great place to eat. There are so many varieties and it is buffet style. A new building as about to open which will expand our food options!! ORU is great about encouraging students to eat healthy by having a couple of healthy snack shop. I would suggest not having too many meals on your meal plan. Depending on your schedule, you may not want to stop at SAGA for breakfast. Its easier to just grab something from a little shop on the way to class. Dining is great though!!

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 Freshman

Guys & Girls: they're all different personalities here at ORU so it can be refreshing and a bit tiring at the same time

4 College Freshman

Academics: the academics are great here you get to learn a lot of stuff

4 College Freshman

Academics: they teach you alot here and they make sure you're prepared for your next step wherever that step leads

3 College Sophomore

Academics: The academics aren't particularly challenging and the general education classes tend to be a waste of time.

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!
