4 College Junior

Athletics: The school has a great athletic team in every level, which is awesome. They are really great!!!!!

3 College Junior

Academics: Theolody and Languages Department – I major in Theology and French Education. The Theology Department is one of the best in the whole school, but the Languange department is still under development in my opinion becuase the department only offer courses as it becomes necessary or every other year, which makes very hard for someone to finish your schooling on a set frame time.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Music Department – I am a musical theater major and recently our school became an all Steinway University! I am very excited to be able to play on a spectacular piano. There are plenty of practice rooms and the availability is rather open.

4 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: Plethora of Cuisine – Tulsa has so many restaurants. I am a server and surrounding my restaurant are over a handful of restaurants. I was surprised to see so many restaurants here. I am relieved to have the many options. There are different prices and different cuisine from inexpensive to expensive. I really appreciate the amount of choices, it makes eating more enjoyable. Much more so than the on-campus cafeteria.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: Wonderful Professors – The professors at Oral Roberts University really care about the students. I feel comfortable going and talking to my professors about anything. They truly care about what is going on in the life of the student whether it be academics or life situations. As a paying student,I want to get the most out of my money and I know that my professors are giving me an education I can be proud of.

4 College Senior

Technology: ORU computer labs have a variety of software and applications that are useful for students in their classes. IT/Computer Science students even get free academic/general use software from Microsoft

5 College Senior

Academics: Wholistic Education – ORU focuses on developing the Whole Person. There is a balanced importance given to Spiritual, Intellectual, Physical and Social growth of a person. No matter what your field of study is, students have the privilege and choice of experiencing other fields of study.

5 College Senior

Diversity: There are people from all walks of life at ORU. The international student population is like none other for a private Christian University.

3 College Student

Parking: Get There on Time – Being that campus is so popular and so many people go to events be sure to arrive on time. There is good parking but one tardiness is not encouraged.

5 College Student

Guys & Girls: At ORU both the guys and girls are extremely dedicated. It doesn't matter how hard classes may be or how many different things are going on they will always be open to help others. The primary focus is honoring God and there is no doubt that they excel in every area of their lives because of their dedication to God.

Campus Quality: The New and Improved Labs – The science labs have recently be redone and have all the new technology, perfect for high standard education. It is one of the best in the state and ORU is well know for its medical acceptance rate.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Private Schooling – I love going to a private school, because we get chapel and the student to teacher ratio is very low which I feel is important.

3 College Freshman

Drug Safety: Drugs and alcohol are against our amnesty policy here and if it is seen then they will be kicked out. Although, I know people still have it and many have been caught and gone without punishment.

1 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorm AC/Heat – We need to be able to control the temperature of the room ourselves. Some people can still get really cold during the summer and would like some heat, but can't have that due to the fact that the entire building has one on and off switch for the heaters and the AC.

5 College Freshman

Party Scene: The night of Oral Roberts is very fun. Everyones very happy and more expressive than during the day when everone's in suits and all about business. I love this school.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Off campus housing is very cheap compared to other places that I've lived. It's also very close to campus, which is very helpful to many students.

5 College Freshman

Local Area: Tulsa and Its Excitement – Tulsa is a very beautiful and diverse place that many states and countries are drawn to.

1 College Junior

Scholarships: Slow as Turtles – My experiences with fin aid have not been pleasant. They are terribly slow at processing any paperwork, yet they expect you to return papers within a couple days. They recently outsourced their student accounts, so when you call you're talking to someone in a call center. Extremely frustrating. You're better off dealing with them in person.

3 College Junior

Administration: The administration puts up a hard front with all the rules, and they stick to their guns for the most part. However, they are understanding, and if you're willing to go through the petition process they'll usually work with you.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: Be Responsible – The financial aid process went smoothly with the generous assistance that the university provides its students. However, in order to ensure that your financial is hassle-free you must be proactive and do your homework (i.e. submit FAFSA and apply for scholarships/loans) before arriving to new student orientation.

3 College Freshman

Campus Food: Variety of Dining – The campus provides a variety of food, flexible meal plans, and several dining options both on and off campus. However, the Saga dining hall and late night stop by Chick-Fil-A can get old sometimes but one of the nearby restaurants can satisfy your desire for something different.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safe and Well Respected – Oral Roberts University is a beautiful campus that is designed with their students in mind including their safety and well being. The university not only provides a 24/7 security service and patrol but also requires its students to abide by special security measures and policies (i.e. student access cards/codes). The students are also held to a higher standard of respect and consideration towards each other and their property. However, as an additional measure of precaution you may keep your doors locked while you're away.

3 College Sophomore

Transportation: Transportation around the university area is understated. I do not know anyone personally who actually uses the bus system. There are a few shopping/dining options with in walking distance though, and there are always shuttles available to drive students to and from the airport, and also to a local Church on Sundays

5 College Freshman

Diversity: Most everyone at ORU are very friendly and they make you feel welcome. There are many group/floor events that give students the chance to get to know everyone on their floor and brother/sister floors.

5 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Oral Roberts University is in a convenient location. It is not too close to the busy city but it is close enough to everything you may need including Walmart, a restaurante strip, jobs, churches, and parks.

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!
