Health & Safety: The campus is very safe and everyone works to keep it that way.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: It feels very safe on campus. Not only does the religious environment of the campus ease the minds of students, but we also have a moat around the campus. (That moat was not intentional; the river was just getting too big, so the city of Tulsa had to renovate all areas where the river was flowing.)

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: You always see the security guards driving around

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students say they feel very secure on the ORU campus, as they should in a Christian, Bible-following atmosphere. There are not many reports at all of theft or any other crimes, really. And if anything remotely malevolent happens, it almost always stems from a group of students just looking for an adventure, which leads to somebody accidentally getting hurt in the process.

Public Safety officers are seen at least once on almost any trip to anywhere on campus. In fact, so little happens on campus in the way of crime that it seems like some members of the security force get so bored that they keep themselves busy by looking for cars parked in the wrong lots so they can write tickets.
