Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

When students first set foot on the ORU campus, they may be reminded of a city found in a fantasy movie, novel, or TV show, such as “The NeverEnding Story” or “The Jetsons.” The architecture here is very unique: it’s all black and gold and futuristic-looking. Nearly every building has some type of Biblical symbolism, which is very astonishing. For example, the Learning Resource Center is based off of King Solomon’s Temple.

There is one library on campus and it is located in the Learning Resource Center, known as the LRC, and is two levels. While the Hamill Student Center is the true student center at ORU, the Towers Lobby, known as the Fishbowl, is a favorite place to hang out on campus. It is located between the two male Towers dorms and the two female ones.
