4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: The school does try to help the best they can the only problem is that unless you are willing to accept all loans the government offers you they won't offer you any more help. The school does expect you to make most of your own money and the rest covered by loans. It's costs a lot to go to this school but it's a great safe school.

5 College Sophomore

Administration: Our school does not allow drugs, tobacco, or alcohol which I love. They also don't allow opposite genders in the floors the only time they can visit each other is in the lobby downstairs; I love that also. They have card access and if you are a male trying to get into the elevator to go up into the girl's floors it won't let you and vice versa if you are a girl you can't go into the guy's floor.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I have access to a great library. They have a prayer tower which is extremely important to me. They have chapel twice a week and worship nights every other Thursday which is wonderful. There is a church across the road from the school that gladly works with ORU students.

5 College Sophomore

Academics: I don't have a problem with the workload. It is hard work and I study everyday almost all day but it's college I wouldn't expect anything less. The best place to study is the library it's always warm in the winter and decent in the summer and quiet if you find an empty corner.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The teachers care about each student! They will do whatever they can to help, they make themselves available even after office hours. They are very friendly and personable. They are also very professional. The classes are kept small too.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The school is always having career recruiters come to the school.

3 College Sophomore

Off-Campus Dining: The best place to go is Ihop which is a couple blocks away. It's 24/7 and they understand when we walk in and order coffee and pull out our homework that it's going to be a late night.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Food: I don't like how few restaurants we have that we can pay for with our meal plan. I get very tired of eating the same foods for the several months that I'm there. I don't have money to eat off campus like some students. The cafeteria food isn't bad but it's not great. It's pretty normal for college students to stay up all night studying and although chick-fil-a stays open until midnight some nights...our chick-fil-a is an express version and it's NOT good.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: There are people from over 50 different countries; it's amazing!

Majors: The internships I have done have been incredibly helpful!

4 College Sophomore

Guys & Girls: First thing, is that if anyone is undergoing any emotion towards the opposite sex, do not misunderstand by my bubbling of it "widely unaccepted" which is true because this is a school based around living a life centered around Jesus Christ. Now with that being said, there is no judgement towards a persons decision, we cannot judge someone when we ourselves our facing our own battles. There are many different people who come from all sorts of places, and praise God if you decide to come here if you are living an unstable lifestyle because this is the place to grow and be set free from the chains that the enemy has placed on you. So do not feel condemned or judged because what you will get is more love and understanding. In regards to the men and women, you will find all sorts of ages, married to single, who are from Africa, South America, Asia, Europe, and the United States et cetera, so do not worry of finding a "soulmate" because the most important thing is living a life for God and not of yourselves. Putting Him first will allow other doors to open for you in the future so don't worry.

Majors: There are many majors and minors to choose from. The process of applying is simple and nothing unusual. All you have to have are good grades, and letters of recommendation.

4 College Sophomore

Majors: I am in love with this school, the most important thing to me is having a school that supports what I believe in. Not only is everything centered around God, but they also support you and help you with what ever problem that you have. To be in such an atmosphere is a blessing and a privilege because it really helps you grow as an adult, spiritually, mentally, and physically.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: To my knowledge there hasn't been any violence of students harming other students on campus. The Walmart across the street is the only thing to cause any problems, which is why you will hear from pretty much every student, to go with a group of people when you need to make a quick grocery run at night, but other than that, there is little to none harmful activity going, so you're pretty safe.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: Honestly there are so many people from many different places and it is awesome to converse with people growing up in different cultures. And because this school was built on the principles of the Holy Spirit, by the Grace of God it has become a place of refuge and a place to build a thriving relationship with Jesus Christ.

4 College Sophomore

Scholarships: It isn't simple, however the financial aid office at ORU is very organized and tells you exactly what you need to fill in, complete, turn it et cetera. Then once everything is turned in all you have to do is wait until they process everything then it is finished.

4 College Sophomore

Administration: One of the main things you must understand is the Honor Code. It is there to remind each student of the life that they should be living, in other words, to live like Jesus Christ, which is why there is a curfew, no alcohol and strict rules only to prevent what the enemy would want you to do in the first place. This is only a guideline to follow to give students a better opportunity to overcome certain habits and prevent the temptation to commit them again. It may sound horrible, but when you realize how the enemy can use anything to get you distracted, this Honor Code is merely a reminder of what we must do to stay focused and on fire for God.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There is no need of Greek Life. The campus is very friendly and everyone is connected through someone in someway.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The kindness that I received here was one of the main reasons why I chose to go here. If I have people who truly care about me and want to help me by praying for me, speaking encouragement and life for my life, what more could I ask? The genuine attitude and spirit-filled lifestyle is what I saw through the interviewers and the people in general. If you desire to gain a better understanding of God and the way that the Holy Spirit works through what God wills for your life then ORU is for you.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Food: Certain places are open during convenient hours and it has some variation but not much. Although that is a good thing because staying healthy and eating healthy is important and having Moe's and Chic-fil-a and different coffee shops around gives us just enough to give a change of taste, however i personally love the food that the school provides, it varies everyday, some days are better than others but overall my tastebuds are quite satisfied.

Off-Campus Housing: It is definitely cheaper however with the cost of gas, food, and traveling around you really need people to live with in order to make it cheaper. Also living on campus, really sustains the spiritual atmosphere and keeps people connected and that is what makes living on-campus such an important part of coming to Oral Roberts University.

3 College Sophomore

Local Area: Tulsa is a pretty okay city, but it is full of crime.

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!
