Guys & Girls: Great Morals – The students at ORU are great Christians and are hard working. They are very friendly and always really to help with whatever they can.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Good School – My experience at Oral Roberts University has been great. Everyone is friendly and willing to help you. The academics are good for the most part. There is free tutoring available if you need it. Chapel is great. This school will help you grow spiritualy, physicaly, and mentaly.

4 College Junior

Athletics: We have a very strong basketball team that is a powerful mid-major. Our baseball team makes it to the ncaa tournament every year. The facilities are impressive and up to date and the teams are fun to watch and the athletes are talented.

Campus Food: Typical College Fair – Healthy food and plenty of it. Some overcooked or food that even the cafeteria workers would not eat. The food is a real grab bag in the cafeteria, but there are a lot of other options like Chick-fil-a which are nice too for a change of pace.

Scholarships: Overall the financial aid process is very good, they show an interest in student's problems and are very reachable. One tip is to apply for the Whole-Person Scholarship if you plan to go to Oral Roberts University. A majority of applicants typically receive a portion of this scholarship.

4 College Sophomore

Parking: Parking at Oral Roberts University is very convenient. There are rarely any lines or accidents and there's always a parking space available.

3 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Girl & Guy's Dress – The girls on campus are very attractive :)! Most of them are very outgoing and enjoy meeting new people and having a good time. Guy's dress is a very "hipster" type look. A majority of the male students where cropped up skinny jeans with a low cut v-neck.

4 College Student

Campus Quality: College Campus or Space Station – Almost every building here has some sort of out of this world aspect. From the Prayer Tower to our learning facility everything seems like it landed here more than it was built. Saga is easy to get around and with 3,200 students that can easily be appreciated. Our Aerobics Center is within walking distance but has almost everything you could possibly want. The school is really up on staying fit.

3 College Sophomore

Administration: ORU is very strict. We have a dress code and a curfew of 1:30am. There is zero tolerance for drinking, drugs, sex, or smoking.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Since we do not have a football team, basketball is the big thing here. Our guys this year were almost undefeated in Summit League!

1 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Housing: Off Campus Is NOT an Option – ORU has no off-campus housing and does not allow for commuting unless you are 25 or older or live with your parents.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Oral Roberts University is a very uplifting community students and faculty are a part of. Students and faculty are friendly and striving to be whole people complete in body, mind, and spirit. This spirit-filled university is one of the most joyful campuses in this or any parallel universe!

5 College Junior

Drug Safety: No Drugs Allowed! ORU is a drug and alcohol-free campus. The resident advisers help monitor this. All students at ORU sign an honor code at the first of the year that says they will abstain from the use of drugs and alcohol. Although it is very rare for a student to disobey the honor code, occasionally students will get a hold of some alcohol or smoke off-campus.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: Since Oral Roberts University is a small campus and community, safety is always a priority. ID cards are required to enter the dormitories and other campus buildings after hours. With our well trained and highly skilled no nonsense security force, I have never doubted my security.

3 Recent Alumnus

Scholarships: The financial aid process was a big faith walk. Private School funding is hard to come by if there are so few scholarships and so many students. Best tip I can give is to get as much money for school before going off to school.

5 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Good Times – My overall experience at ORU was a fun one and it was very life changing because of the spiritual aspects and variety of cultural backgrounds.

5 Recent Alumnus

Athletics: There are a lot of extracurricular activities on campus like brother sister wing events, intramural sports, and floor events. There are white-outs at basketball games and pre-game activities and school wide charity events also.

4 College Freshman

Diversity: Nothing Less Than Astounding! Oral Roberts University is a very unique, beautiful, and astounding school. ORU is a spirit filled Christian campus that thrives to help and provide the right tools necessary for students to be able fulfill their dreams. ORU is a social campus that has numerous opportunities to get involved with clubs and athletics. I can do nothing but appalled ORU for having a encouraging, successful, and safe place for students to learn and grow!

3 College Junior

Majors: Modern Language – I enjoy my program so much because it gives me a greater sense of understanding of other race and cultures.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: ORU is unique in its concept of the whole person education.

3 College Junior

Local Area: Tulsa is a city full of diversity. there is something for everyone in Tulsa.

5 College Senior

Athletics: WE're UNDEFEATED THIS YEAR! title says it all! Here comes the ESPN bracket buster!!

4 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Youre Not Gonna Tell Anybody – Well, its ORU. This is not exactly the drug scene. Most of the students are aspiring to be God-centered and spirit led. So if you came with a habit or adopted one, you try with all your might to hide it or kill it.

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!
