Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Oral Roberts University has come a long way in this regard, and the administration has become much more lenient in the past few years, especially with the dress code. A little more than five years ago, students were not allowed to wear denim to class, and students can now wear “neat” jeans and flip-flops to class and chapel. And in 2009, male students were allowed to grow facial hair (neatly trimmed) for the first time in University history. Technically, ORU students are not supposed to wear T-shirts to class and must have a collar, but this rule has not been enforced lately.

All students who have live on campus have a curfew, but it was recently pushed back to 1:30 a.m. every night. As is the case with most Christian universities, all ORU students sign an honor code, which even appears on the application. The code states that students will not do any of the following: engage in premarital sex or homosexual relations, drink alcohol, use drugs or tobacco, lie, steal, curse, or cheat, among other things. All ORU students are also required to attend chapel Wednesday and Friday at 11 a.m. (no classes are scheduled at these times). But, overall, ORU is becoming more relaxed about its rules.

There are no coed dorms at ORU. The visiting hours in the dorms are 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. every other Sunday. It's not that bad, though, and students get used to it.
