Oklahoma Baptist University is very great when it comes to taking care of their students, whether academically or financially. The campus is very accepting of all their students regardless of race, gender, political affiliation, etc. The majority of students have financial aid of some type, which is great!

It's a great christian environment. The faculty really cares about their students! The students come here for the same mindset-to get closer to Christ through their education. The campus is nice but the student life is so fun. They always have great activities to do. The classes are challenging but are christian oriented and also all cubs and sports are as well. They incorporate a biblical worldview into every aspect of campus life!
At Oklahoma Baptist University, I found a place where I was challenged academically and spiritually. To put it in the simplest possible way, I have never heard a student talking about their coursework at a different university that convinced me that their degree was harder earned than my own. In fact, I am convinced that OBU is about as good as Bible Colleges come from an academic standpoint, and I am very prepared for ministry and seminary. Also, they do an incredible job of integrating faith and learning to create a Christ-centered community of students and professors.
