OU has many majors for students to look into if they are undecided. Also, the student life at OU is very robust, offering many activities.

Well first off, yes this university is quite expensive. However, the professors are excellent at what they do. You can tell that they actually care about each student and do whatever they can to make sure that you understand the material. This is great because the classes are also quite difficult. So just be ready to work hard.
