I came from a rural area and was concerned about being on such a large campus. OU provides so many opportunities for students to meet. I also found organizations that provide ways to participate on campus and make new friends. OU provides great professors that work to ensure students' success. I live in the athletic dorms, I am not an athlete. They are required to have a percentage of non-athletes in the dorm. I feel very safe and the accommodations are great! We have our own cafeteria in the dorm and there is a great variety of healthy food to choose from. I would recommend the University of Oklahoma to everyone looking for a great college experience.

Currently completing an online Masters in Education. This is the first year this program has been offered (21st century teaching and learning). What I have been most pleased with is that it is truly an online course. Further, all of the professors have been willing to change their content to fit the needs of the cohort. Yes, this is a cohort style Masters, which means you complete all the requirements with a small group that moves through the steps at exactly the same time. The ability to collaborate with these great educators has been invaluable!

I enjoyed OU. It is very diverse and I meet lots of amazing people. The campus is huge and a lot of walking involved. I love OU. For the most part, everyone is friendly and willing to help you out. There is a heavy influence on Greek life and football. you hardly notice any divide. Professors are always willing to help you and, that I have experienced, never put their work before their students. It's a great campus in an even better town. Hopefully you'll love OU as much as I do!
