5 College Student

Overall Experience: The University of Oklahoma has what I believe to have the best facilities and welcoming staff I have ever encountered. The campus beautiful, filled with a diversity of students, and the University offers great opportunities to study aboard. Although, the size university is tremendous, it was incredible to see that each and everyone had such a great connection with one another. Therefore, in my behalf, I have a strong feeling that The University of Oklahoma is a great fit for me and my future career.

Overall Experience: The University of Oklahoma is a large school with massive student population. What makes it great is the school's nonstop effort to make sure each student feels like they are a part of something greater. With ongoing mandatory classes of diversity training to the loving staff and help, OU feels so much more inclusive and geared towards every type of person, no matter their background. We are truly a family stitched together from different backgrounds, beliefs, ethnicities, culture & more!! Boomer Sooner!!

Overall Experience: Broken Arrow High School has evolved and innovated to a great extent since my freshman year. There are amazing new (and useful) facilities being built and Broken Arrow continues to build more. Broken Arrow's new system has been very specific on who they hire. Most of the teachers are amazing and are great to work with.

Overall Experience: The University of Oklahoma is a great institution academically and extra curricular wise. However, it is up to the student to make the effort and participate in the activities and opportunities given to them. Being an African American student and non Greek, there are times, however, I feel as though certain activities are not tailored towards non Greeks. There was also the incident with the fraternity. However, despite that, the school has proven it does not tolerate such behavior and President Boren (D-Bo as the students call him) showed the students and all Sooner fans that all is welcomed despite race or ethnicity. As for the activities and clubs that are offered, although as stated earlier it can seem as though Non-Greeks are left out, there are plenty of other clubs, organizations and activities one can partake in.

Overall Experience: So far so good. I've enjoyed the large campus but I do wish I had applied to schools with higher ranking out of state. I just feel like there are too many people that I already know that are going there too. I just wanted to start a brand new life without having to carry over my reputation etc. Oh well, I'm sure college will be great.

Overall Experience: OU is a fantastic school. The education I am receiving is top notch and the professors want us to succeed. They will challenge you to grow as a student and expand your mind's way of thinking. OU football games bring the whole school together and were the highlight of my first year of school. The environment was electric, and I have never been so proud to go to OU. OU is unique because even though it is so large, everyone feels like family. The school has many opportunities to unite as one, which I really appreciate. The OU student body also has a special relationship with our school president. He wants to be involved with us and tries to be "one of us" in any way possible. He teaches a class every semester, which I had the honor of being in this past semester. I will never forget it.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love the University of Oklahoma for multiple reasons. It is a beautiful campus with state of the art facilities. It has an awesome sports program that I love supporting by attending games or following the season on TV. It has a rich history of producing individuals with character and promise. What I like most about my college is how our president, David Boren, strives to be the face of the school, showing compassion and wisdom. He is a great leader who has never been afraid to do things he felt would bring success to the school, regardless of criticism. I would love to meet him in person and express my respect for him.

Off-Campus Dining: Didn't really eat off campus that much due to the fact that I had a meal plan

2 College Sophomore

Administration: It's ok but they treat alcohol as if it does no harm, and you only get a citation and a little fine, but they treat the use of pot as if you are a sub human garbage who has no moral fiber

Scholarships: Ok not the best but did get aid

OU is an excellent choice for students who are undecided on their majors because it truly offers a wide variety of fantastic programs in every field of study, allowing students time to explore different classes and change their minds. The campus environment is great, too. There really is a place for everyone, no matter how strange your interests may be, and what really counts is the fact that the people that run the random clubs and organizations on campus want you to be involved, to have a good time, and to grow as a person. College is about experimenting and learning about oneself. OU provides its students with the means to do so in a safe situation. The majority of students are very satisfied with their time spent at OU. They feel that the small town of Norman offers a true college experience, along with the ability to give back to the community. Most feel that people in Norman are genuinely friendly and, for the most part, down to earth. The academics at OU are strong, and, generally speaking, the professors are understanding and qualified. Although there are some aspects that could use improvement, like parking, OU offers many great perks that make up for the minor inconveniences. OU has a strong athletic tradition, and the facilities available to students and athletes alike are top-of-the-line. There are numerous things to do, depending on what or with whom you care to do them with. Ultimately, what makes OU such a great place was different for every student, which only proves that OU truly does have something for everybody.
