Athletics: There was too much focus on athletics, but the athletics were great.

Health & Safety: As a woman, I feel secure on the campus. The campus provides phone booths for emergency services that are visible from any one location on campus.

Overall Experience: My courses are appropriately difficult and the professors are mostly nice, if tough. The class sizes vary a lot, but that doesn't bother me much.

Overall Experience: I don't have a lot of experience with the career centers, but the value of a degree from this university is very high; the degree will carry a lot of weight.

Campus Housing: Our on-campus amenities are very nice, but not all are created equal. Some dorms have different restaurants, amenities, and living options, but all are great.

Athletics: Our athletics are very, very important to our university. We are nationally ranked in a lot of different sports including football and basketball.

Overall Experience: The University of Oklahoma is a wonderful school for a lot of reasons. The academics are wonderful, the professors are knowledgeable and helpful, and all of the staff only wants help. The campus is beautiful and most of the student body is perfectly friendly.

4 College Senior

Campus Housing: The dorms at OU, compared to a lot of other school's dorms, are pretty darn good. They are not cheap, but you get a lot for your $.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life at OU is great if that is what you want. I tried rushing a sorority my freshman year but I on,y lasted4 months before I left becUse it just is it for me. Everyone else I met stayed in and really enjoyed it. I might have had a better college experience if I had remained in the sorority.

1 College Senior

Overall Experience: I have not enjoyed my time at OU. The classes and professors have been incredibly disappointing. The workload for upper division classes is absolutely astronomical. I cant imagine a more stressful environment than the environment in class at OU. Administration does not care about you, you do not matter as an individual, and if you don't play football or basketball then your voice is not heard. OU has been nearly worthless.

Overall Experience: Many employers respect and acknowledge the high educational value of the University of Oklahoma.

4 College Senior

Health & Safety: The University of Oklahoma takes great steps to ensure the safety of its students.

3 College Senior

Campus Housing: The dorms have changed since my freshman year. However, I am aware that the dorms remain a great way to meet, enteract, and study with your peers. The dorms are in proximity of all main buildings and resources on campus.

4 College Senior

Greek Life: Greek life maintains a substantial presence within the University of Oklahoma community. Many events sponsored by fraternities and sororities benefit and include the community. Many non-Greeks respect and interact with those who are in a house. Greek life at OU is not exclusive.

4 College Senior

Overall Experience: The University of Oklahoma is a family. My favorite experiences include: attending to sporting events, university sponsored weekend events, and Soonerthon (a charity event).

5 College Senior

Athletics: The University of Oklahoma thrives on athletic sucess and tradition. The team/student involvement is widespread and concrete.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love the way classes are taught in the graduate school because I don't fell like anyone is trying to babysit me. I'm young to be pursuing a master's degree, I came here straight from undergrad, but no one has ever made me feel like that is a disadvantage. I am a little frustrated because although I understand that the opera emphasis is new, and still has kinks to be worked out, it feels as if the program cares more about incoming students than the ones who are already here. That is unfair.

3 College Junior

Overall Experience: I want to sing opera professionally. I am under no illusions about the difficulty of finding a career in my field. I am very good at what I do, and with a lot of hard work, networking, and luck, I think I have a good shot. I have accepted that I will need to have some other kind of job for some time, and it might be better to use my Communications minor to get a day job and pursue music on weekends and in the evenings. Music takes a lot of financial investment before it begins to pay off, so if I have to wait tables in order to afford my audition fees, that is what I am willing to do.

Health & Safety: I've never felt unsafe on campus, or walking to my vehicle in the dark.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: As a grad student I don't really pay attention to the Greek Life here, as the sorority I belonged to in undergrad was a small local chapter with no branch here.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: The graduate music program is fantastic, and I have never had so many opportunities to be involved and performing. I feel like my professors appreciate the fact that I already have a college degree and that I am here to continue my education. The worst part about OU is that Norman has clearly never heard of a city planner, and it takes 30 minutes to get anywhere. If there is any sort of event in town, traffic becomes exponentially worse. I live 2 miles from campus and I can get there in 10 minutes in the evening, but during any busy time of time, I must budget at least half an hour in travel time.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors
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.
