Off-Campus Dining: Many Options to Choose from – Options include Mexican, Italian, Chinese finer dining and all the ussual campus delights: pizza, subway, ribs, frozen yogurt, sonic, chicken, all withing walking distance of campus. If you drive, a short distance away are more fine dining: everything from continental, steak houses to japanese.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: Don't Break Honor Code – You already know that this is a strict university. It's fully Christian and upholds all those values 100% of the time. There's no room for error, especially for drinking, sex, and all that "good stuff" that comes with an average persons idea of what college life should be. This includes off campus activities as well. Lucky enough, the curfew has been changed from 11 pm to 1:30 am.. so go wild with that :)

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: Girls and Guys from 1 - 10 – So many options and no time to pick. You have varying types of guys and girls. From the tall and handsome, short and geeky, and the cute and preppy, to the leggy and sexy. It all depends on what you're looking for.

Diversity: Moderately Diverse – Although there are many different races represented on campus, there are a numerous amount of Caucasions present. People would think that this is typical of a small Christian University, but surprisingly there are many different international countries represented at ORU. This ranges from those in the Caribbean, to many in Africa, even to parts of Russia and Sweden. International students transition easily into this new enviornment because people are provided to aid in this step.
Most students that attend this institution are "bible-believers" and there doesnt seem to be much room for religous deviation. Come to ORU if you believe what they believe, it'll build your faith for sure.

Scholarships: I received some financial aid, it was very confusing getting started as I continue to progress through the proper channels it seems to get a bit easier. I wish there was a way for adults going back to school to locate scholarships. It seems scholarships are available to the freshmen who just graduated high school but not many for those of us who regret not going after high school and are trying to correct it now.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Business Major – I love the way ORU has allowed all the incoming freshmen to get acquainted as well as making sure they have all the knowledge they need to get started. The workload is tough at first, it gets easier as you get more accustomed to college life. The facilities are nice, the parts I've visited. I'm currently enrolled as an online student. This is why I am searching for scholarships available in order to finish my education through full time status. The job opportunities in Tulsa/ Broken Arrow are endless for someone with a Busniess Management/ Administration Degree.

5 College Freshman

Administration: Strict Honor Code – They are very strict. Every student is required to sign a strict honor code. There are no co-ed dorms and no one of the opposite sex is allowed in the dorms.

Off-Campus Dining: Lots of Places to Eat – There is a Little Ceasars and a Mcdonalds right across the street for cheap dining. There is also a Wingstop, Buffalo wild wings, IHOP, Taco Bell, QDoba and many other places all within a 2 mile radius of the school

Local Area: Small Town, Big Values – Tulsa is a small urban city with very friendly people. It is a very easy going community. There are a lot of churches in Tulsa.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Amazing Atmosphere – I came to Oral Roberts University not really knowing what to expect. I have fallen in love with the campus, the small but outgoing student body, and my incredible professors! The music program here is very different from other schools, in the sense that competition isn't as intense. We compete with each other for different spots, but it definitely is not the cut-throat competitiveness like at any other music school. I feel that with this type of environment I thrive at a much faster rate. I love it here!

5 College Senior

Campus Quality: It Has the Best Students and Faculty – The thing that sets ORU from other school are the people. Almost everyone you meet there is friendly and willing to go out of their way to help out new students. Its the most friendliest and most hospitable environment for any college. The professors and staff are caring and very helpful in making your experience in school a benefit.

4 College Senior

Parking: There are a wide area of places to park. Of course all students have to have a parking permit to park on campus which is free.

Campus Housing: The People You Meet Here Are Amazing! Since coming here four years ago, i've made so many friends and we hang out alot. I've met people of all different religions, cultures, and from all countries. It's a great melting pot of people in one school and it's a unforgetable experience.

Local Area: Coming from a highly populated and congested area, Tulsa is a breath of fresh air. Nice people, good food, plently of eateries that are varied. There are also FREE ORU basketball games at the Mabee Center for all ORU students. There is the Riverwalk on the Arkansas River with some shops and music and restaurants, that make for a pleasant evening out. And there is also downtown that has the BOK arena for concerts and such, the Tulsa Performing Arts Center, and the Blue Dome district for Indie style, music, coffee shop type people.

Overall Experience: The first thing I loved about coming here was the community; the people are great. It fits me because I have a heart for missions, and they have a great missions department and vision. You have to know when to say no to activities though, there are so many opportunities for leadership, outreach, etc, and many people need to work also, and it gets crazy fast. You definitely need to balance that out with academics, especially if you're coming here and paying for a private education.

College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: Probably Can Find It If You're Allowed – I haven't lived off campus, but I know there are several apartment buildings nearby and I've heard housing in Tulsa is comparatively not too expensive. Only thing is most students are required to live on campus unless you're over 25, married, part-time, graduate, or are living with your parents.

4 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: I Am an Online Student – I am a online student. I am currently not on the campus.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: Good Question – The school is strict to a certain degree. If you follow the rules, then their will be no problems. However if someone is to become a constant problem, they can be expelled from the university

5 College Sophomore

Drug Safety: No Drugs/Alcohol – The school has a Zero tolerance for drugs and alcohol. Before signing up for Oral Roberts University you are required to sign an honor code stating that you will refrain from all alcohol and drug related items

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Saga Cafeteria – The Cafeteria is amazing. There is plenty of room, and the food is cooked fresh everyday. There is a huge variety of menu items to pick from, including, home cooking, international, vegetarian, and their is always pizza and burgers.

4 College Junior

Party Scene: The Student Association and campus clubs plan several events for students to participate in weekly, but if students want to hang out they typically go off campus to enjoy city nightlife such as movies, restaurants, bowling, coffee shops, or dancing. The school has several study locations, and to socialize on campus many students relax in the commons or eat together in the cafeteria or coffee shops.

Local Area: City Life – The atmosphere around campus is lively and entertaining. It is full of restaurants, malls, fairs, and festivals. Lots of local businesses look upon the students as reliable workers, and students have many opportunities to intern in fields related to their degree of study. The community welcomes the college-age and has a wide diversity that matches that of the university's students. It is relatively safe, but wise to not travel alone or be in isolated areas at night. Overall, it is an ideal city for a campus location.

Transportation: The campus is across the street (within walking distance) of a Walmart and several coffee shop and cafe places. It is convenient to go study off campus and to buy groceries, etc. Many students have cars and those that do not are able to get rides with friends. The bus does not stop at the university.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Awesome Campus! The campus is completely safe, with tons of security. They are easy to access. There is also Emergency call centers on campus. Their is not any drug or alcohol problems on campus, due to it being a huge Christian atmosphere.

3 College Sophomore

Academics: I really enjoy the variety of Psychology classes. They have something for everybody. There is Abnormal Psychology, Marriage and Family, Measurements of Psychology, and much more. The professors are amazing, and genuinely care about all their students. You are known by name by the professors and they take an active roll in your education. The workload is medium, their is always something to be done, but they give ample time to complete it. Wonderful opportunities for teachers assistants.

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!
