Weather: often the weather changes very quickly on campus. one minute it could be 100 degrees and the next it could be a thunderstorm. the seasons are very defined. if it does happen to snow during december/january, students take full advantage of the snow day as the city shuts down due to lack of snow removal ability.

Academics: Business College – ORU's business classes are often helpful although i find a few of them to be dull and monotonous. I didn't learn a thing in Business Law nor did any of my peers as the class did not pay attention at all. Earlier in the year, i took a principles class for marketing and the prof was a younger man who didn't seem to know the concepts well...he had some real world experience but mostly was a bore. overall i like the business classes at ORU, like management and Quantitative Analysis. I find a few classes to not be so challenging.

Administration: Not Really Harsh – Strictness can be difficult depending on who your Resident Advisior (RA). But its a christian school and grace is as prevalent as it can

3 College Junior

Academics: There is an array of degree programs. Registration process can be a bit of a hassle at times but once you get through it life becomes much easier. The professors are all amazing except for a few. But they actually care unlike other professors

Local Area: Atmosphere around tulsa oklahoma is quite amazing. If you go to the right places. But yes there are lots of stores that are around it just as long as you know how to drive. In fact there's so much to do just as long as you know how to drive

Weather: The snowing season can be very bad to the point that the school has to close its campus at times.

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.

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.

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.

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!
