3 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Dorms are a bit dark and uninviting. The quiet hours were not enforced very well in my experience. Overall it was what you would expect of a dorm.

2 College Freshman

Greek Life: I'm in a sorority and there is so much competition and cattiness among us and the other sororities (even frats). While nongreeks don't look down on Greeks, there is definitely a stigma if you're not Greek or if you're in a lower house. I do not believe the Greek life on campus is performing like it was created to. I wish there was less of an emphasis on Greek life here and more of an emphasis on just being friendly to each other.

4 College Freshman

Athletics: Great school spirit! The student athletic facility could use some updating.

3 College Freshman

Overall Experience: The classes are good and the sports are fun, but Greek life is a bit out of control.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Courses are generally good, teachers are usually willing to help and be understanding.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: Receiving a degree from this school is a dream come true, because not only is it a great school, but it is challenging so it would be extremely rewarding.

4 College Freshman

Health & Safety: I never feel uncomfortable or unsafe when walking home alone on campus.

4 College Freshman

Campus Housing: Living on campus is awesome because you can walk everywhere and not have to worry about having gas in your car. It's also nice being close to everything and everyone.

5 College Freshman

Greek Life: I love Greek Life because not only does it give you the opportunity to meet lifelong friends, but also gives you the opportunity to get involved on campus.

5 College Freshman

Athletics: OU has so much school spirit and pride in our sports teams.

4 College Freshman

Overall Experience: I love OU because they provide so many outside resources in order to be successful and achieve greatness.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: There are things I would change about the quality of the courses and Gen Ed requirements. The professors are top notch hands on and offer a lot of opportunity. Class sizes are generally large though, buyer beware on that one.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I think they could do a better job with employers recruiting and making sure that the alumni network is supported. There can be a better career center/services option and make it more known.

3 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: I've had to call the police before and it's a 2 minute response time, generally. Also have blue telephone emergency lines/safewalk/saferide and busses to make sure you get where you need safely.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Housing is okay. Living on campus makes it easy to get to the classes you need. Very few amenities and little social atmosphere. You need to make your experience what you want. Cost is ridiculous. Might have convenience but cost is ridiculous. The housing process is mixed reviews but often times they are difficult to work with and get the help you need.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: There are a lot of requirements to be allowed to get into the greek life and to be a member of a fraternity or sorority. Greek life is fairly cliche and there are parties on the lawns all the time. Greek members have volunteered and raised thousands and thousands of dollars for several philanthropies. Non-greeks are viewed as accepted. Greek housing is expensive but doable. Usually requires you to live in for a year depending on the frat/sorority.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I don't utilize all of the athletic opportunities but it is a great program and allows for a lot of fun activities. Team performance and fan support are really important for this school.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: This school has the best opportunities and best classes for almost every major. It's a Big 12 school and offers a lot of opportunities for students to challenge themselves and pace themselves to be the best they can be.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Besides the math department , the school has been great

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Personally, I am not a fan of sororities or fraternities. Combining a society based upon social interactions and my own Asperger's Syndrome is a recipe for disaster.

5 College Sophomore

Athletics: I am extremely prejudiced when it comes to OU football; I was raised in a crimson jersey. I do not pay much attention to the other sports categories.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The online classes are consistent; I do not have to guess what will be due the next week. So far my classes do not have midterms or final exams, instead they have a longer essay due or an extra assignment during those periods. The downside is not being able to sit and speak with a professor in person.

Greek Life: I'm not in a frat, but i have tons of friends who are. Students involved in Greek life are still amazing people and no different than other students on campus.

5 College Senior

Overall Experience: The University of Oklahoma student body is one big family that stands together in unity. We have an amazing alumni association that does so much for our school. President Boren is an amazing leader that helps unify our campus by creating OU Cousins programs to make every international student feel welcome. The University has won the Jones award multiple years in a row for the most diverse student population. We also have more National Merit Scholars than any other university private and public.

Athletics: We have one of the top schools in the country for athletics. Almost every sport is ranked in the top 5 in their sport. (ncaa and club) Football and basketball both finished at #4, mens and women gymnastics won national championships, and so on. Almost every sports team at OU is the top in the country. We also have the best student body and fans. Sooner pride runs deep here.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

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.
