3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Campus is pretty safe. The nurse is usually always available.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I believe when it comes to classes and professors for my major eve thing is great. I am able to get one on one help and I feel as if I'm getting what I need for my career. As for general Ed for example Survey of Old Testament, that class was extremely difficult and I left that class without retaining much of the information.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Every graduate I know has said they already had job offers months before actually graduating which of course excites me. From what I've heard the career center is very helpful.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: the experience depends on which dormitory building you stay in. I liked Gabrielle but not very social.

3 College Sophomore

Athletics: I go to almost every home game for every sport. Not many students attend which saddens me but I enjoy my time.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love Oral Roberts, it's an amazing school. Atmosphere and everything my only problem is being away from home and how expensive school is.

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The professors really want to help the students understand the material.

4 College Junior

Academics: Academics is great. Like I mentioned before the course will teach you valuable information. There a plenty of quiet places to study on campus. Professors will work with you on assignments. The workload just really depends on what you can do. Most students take about 15-17 credit hours.

5 College Junior

Health & Safety: ORU is secure for the most part. We have never had a problem with safety on campus. Sexual assault is not a problem and security is readily available for anyone

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The professors are very knowledgeable in their field and know what they are talking about. The course are pretty good and there is a lot of variety. One major problem is that many class for majors are only offered at one time which could cause a schedule conflict for those who need other classes at that time.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: ORU students are very likely to get good jobs after graduating. The degree programs at ORU really do prepare you for a real job. You won't be waisting your time. Learn as much as you can and hold on to what you learn from professors and courses.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Each dorm is different. Claudius and EMR are the oldest dorms and they could use some work.The rooms are small in those dorms and sometimes its not always clean. Towers have the biggest rooms.Gabby is the newest dorm with the best amenities such as private bathrooms, a personal cooling/heating system and the newest furniture. Each dorm also has a work out room. Wifi can be an issue and we often have problems connecting to the internet.

4 College Junior

Athletics: ORU has really good teams that do well every year. School spirit is high and the athletic department does a great job in getting the students to come out and support the sports team. Intramural sports are not a big deal but a good amount of students do participate in them. One of our biggest obstacles is getting students to come to games

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: ORU has taught me so many things and allowed me to explore my field. I have had a lot of opportunities to grow and expand my skills and it's all thanks to ORU. The professors are knowledgable in their field and they do know what they are talking about. The courses will push you and you will have to work hard to make the grade. Also, ORU is one of the friendliest universities in the nation. You will not have a problem making friends or finding a helping hand.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: Security is ever present, if anything they are TOO present. But I never feel endangered.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Professor often failed to communicate properly about homework.

They are often inconsistent in grading.

Most of the teachers are passionate about the subject matter they teach.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Nursing majors are almost guaranteed a job upon graduation.

3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: We pay a lot of money to stay in the dorms, but the facilities are quite poor in quality. Often times, we would spend the night freezing in our dorm rooms, because the heating only turns on if it's been around 50 degrees for a long period of time. The hot water would stop working. The showers would fail to drain water and start flooding. There was water damage that leaked onto the carpet. The rooms are tiny, and the fridges don't fit much food. I love living on campus, simply because it makes it easier to spend time with friends and get to class on time. But there are challenges.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: The university always encourages and reminds the student body to dress up in school colors, make signs, etc to cheer on our impressive athletic teams. I wish intramural sports were taken more seriously, and perhaps it just seems as if they are not because I'm a female freshman, which is unfortunate, but overall, school pride is evident at ORU.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love Oral Roberts University. I enjoy meeting people from all over the world. I love living on campus, attending games, having study sessions wit friends, and attending chapel events. But it can be sad when not everyone is likeminded in Christ. Sometimes, it seems as if the Holy Spirit class, and the way the president asks people to speak in tongues during prayer time make people feel like they have to conjure up some encounter with the Holy Spirit, when they are actually not experiencing Him at all. These should be instances that naturally come from the believer; they should not simply appear when it is asked of them. Many of the general ed classes seem to be a waste of time, often times I attend the Holy Spirit class or the Survey of the Old Testament, and know I could have easily skipped and not missed anything.

In addition, If ORU is going to attract more students globally, the facilities need to be updated. The dorms, and many classroom look outdated and are malfunctioning.

All in all, I do enjoy attending ORU, but there is much that could be improved upon.

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!
