I went to OBU for my first two years of college, my number one pick throughout high school, I absolutely loved it. Meeting new people was so easy, and the teachers there were so encouraging and helpful. Anytime I had a question about how to do something, they never looked at me like I wasn't listening but to explain more thoroughly. Overall LOVED it!

I've loved my experience here so far! Everyone is genuinely nice and the professors, for the most part, want to see you succeed. It's an excellent choice for Christians wanting to grow in their faith in a positive academic environment.
My experience at OBU has been somewhat good so far. There are many things about the school that are a bit excessive and unnecessary. The campus life is very split between the students who are athletes and the students who are just students. It is like there are two different worlds. The professors here are all very invested in their students and want nothing more for them to succeed. The school requires every student to take certain classes in order to graduate that have nothing to do with their major, and I believe that it is not needed for every students college education. Having a degree from OBU is very respected, and I wouldn't want to receive my degree from anywhere else.
