Oklahoma Baptist University Reviews
I have loved OBU for the whole time. From the moment I walked around campus on my first tour, I knew this was the school for me. It is a great, small school where the professors and staff truly care about the students. It is a liberal arts university, so you do have to take some classes outside of you major. This can be somewhat annoying, but I think it is good that we will have such a well-rounded education when we graduate. All of the professors genuinely care about the students, both in their success in the class and also their spiritual life and lives outside the classroom. The classes are very rigorous, probably harder than some schools, so if you’re looking for the easy route OBU is not for you. However, if you are wanting a place where you will truly be able to learn and challenge yourself, then it is great!
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!
honestly, OBU has been one of the greatest blessings in my life! The people are so kind, the campus is small and beautiful, and there is so much culture to be found in the community! My professors have had such a positive impact on my education and the way in which I view the world and my place within it. It has been worth every single second and I wouldn't trade my education here for anything else.
