Party Scene


{{ error }}
4 College Freshman

Party Scene: Nightlife at ORU generally consists of students enjoying fellowship over movies, food, and/or homework. I have had little exposure to unhealthy party scenes, and I'm grateful to ORU for my experience. With the discouragement of alcohol and parties comes the opportunity to build stronger relationships with my friends on campus as we converse and get to know each other on a deeper level. Thus, the nightlife at ORU may lack what public institutions thrive on, but I'm thankful for it.

Party Scene: Once again, if parties take place on campus, they solely involve music, games, food, and fellowships. They are known to be healthy social events, and no illegal activity takes place, therefore, they have an extremely positive impact on the students.

3 College Sophomore

Party Scene: My friends and I simply hang out with others on our floor. I don't know about any club/bar scenes.

There are wonderful coffee shops semi-nearby.

Party Scene: People have a lot of fun on the floor most night. A lot of floors organize movie viewings or multiplayer videogames or parties.

Party Scene: The parties on campus are great wholesome fun; socializing and goofing off with people. Some dirty off campus parties come up occasionally but I don't go to those (nor do I hear about them except occasionally).

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students here sign an honor code stating that they will not consume alcohol while enrolled at Oral Roberts University. Most students have no problem with this because they are aware of the University’s expectation when they enroll here.

There are plenty of things to do that don't revolve around alcohol, including going to a movie, heading over to the RiverWalk, which has tons of restaurants and stores, go dance at an 18-and-over club, or just hang out with friends in the dorms or off campus. There are plenty of University-sponsored events on campus, and many organizations put on events for their members.
