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.

5 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Safety at College – Although O.R.U. is located in South Tulsa, the campus is very safe and also feels safe. There are security on guard and easily accessible. There are rare accounts of violence and crime. Safety and functionality is outstanding.

5 College Sophomore

Campus Quality: Campus is on fire for GOD. There is a lot of activities that are going on during the week. The gym includes a indoor pool, basketball and volleyball courts, full equiped work out machines and weights, and a indoor track.

4 College Freshman

Local Area: Home Town – There is alot of outdoor activities around the campus. The bus system is very poor. Most students have cars

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The financial aid process is very simple. Remember to submit you FAFSA as soon as possible don't hesitate to call the Student Acounts office (They are always happy to help and will do their best to assist you).

4 College Freshman

Transportation: Everything on campus is within walking distance, and the shuttles to and from various places are free.

5 College Freshman

Academics: Something for Everyone – ORU offers a variety of studies, every field is top notch, and the professors are incredible.

1 College Freshman

Scholarships: It is such a pain. I know so many people who had problems with financial aid. Most people didn't even realize they had these problems until they got on campus.

The scholarships the school gives out are nice though. I think everyone who applies gets something.

2 College Freshman

Party Scene: Tulsa Closes at 9. Pretty much the only places open after 9 are Taco Bueno, Walmart, and the dollar theater. Tuesdays are 75cents! That's fun....

Campus Quality: Christian Campus – I feel that ORU is a safe place for people to worship Jesus, get a great education, and experience cultures and opportunities that no other place in the world can bring. We make connections with friends, employers, faculty, and God. The Lord is doing some amazing things here. If you're serious about your faith and want a good Christian education, you should pray about attending ORU.

5 College Freshman

Overall Experience: ORU is the greatest place on earth. I love it here. If you let your social life rule your academic life, then it could be trouble. You have to study here; it isn't all fun. I had a rough time before I came here. Six colleges later, I ended up at Oral Roberts University, where my heart, and God told me to go.

4 College Freshman

Technology: I don't really know much about the computers here because I have my own. However, the internet is fairly reliable and very very fast. I really like it. Printing is decently priced and the few times I have used the computers they were reliable and pretty fast.

4 College Freshman

Scholarships: The biggest scholarship that ORU offers besides Honors program and Athlete Scholarships is the Whole Person Scholarship.

ORU seeks to educate students who exemplify a whole person lifestyle in that they are desirous of developing not just intellectually, but emotionally, spiritually and physically.

We are looking for well-rounded students who dream of furthering their education, where they will emerge as servant leaders who are spiritually alive, intellectually alert, physically disciplined, socially adept and professionally competent.

The Whole Person Scholarship Program has been established to recognize students who model the Whole Person concept. Scholarship recipients will demonstrate the following:

Christian Worldview
Lifestyle of Service
Academic Achievement
Leadership Ability
Vision to Make a Life-Changing Impact on Others
Healthy Lifestyle

Parking: There 4 different parking lots that separate visitors,staff, students, and special events. Its orderly and not confusing. There is never traffic or congestion.

5 College Freshman

Off-Campus Dining: Tulsa Town – Food in Tulsa is whatever you want it to be. It has everything from sushi houses to self serve frozen yogurt houses. In addition to commonplace chain restaurants, there are many Tulsa originals. Cost ranges from the cheap and huge Portions "Chedders" to the formal dining affair and proportionately priced Wolf Gang Puck restaurant.

5 College Freshman

Scholarships: The Faculty Is on Your Side! Everyone I talked to during the entire enrollment process was enthusiastic about getting me the help I needed. The financial aid workers are very aware of the high cost of attending ORU, and do theri best to get you all the help you can get. I suggest just asking as many questions as possible, look into the Merit Scholarships, and try for the Whole Person Scholarship competition.

5 College Freshman

Administration: The Honor Code – Every student is required to sign an Honor Code at the beginning of the school year, and is expected to uphold it. Punishments are usually not as strict as one would expect though, usually starting with a fine (for things like property damages), but progressing to more severe things like expulsion depending on the offense. Students caught drinking are often expelled. But that's not a bad thing considering that ORU is a private Christian University, most of the students want to set a standard of moral excellence as well as academic.

4 College Sophomore

Weather: Tulsa weather is great and provides students on the campus with a various climate. Cold winters, mild falls, mild springs, and hot summers make ORU a great place.

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!
