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.
I love Oklahoma Baptist University. It is a great school where the professors and staff truly care about their students success. They don’t just care about your academic success, but also your spiritual success. If you work hard and follow the plan, they guarantee that you will graduate in four years. They desire not just to make more graduates, but people who will go out and be a light for the Lord in their workplace. Depending on what you choose, the academics can be rigorous, but if you are wanting something easy then you probably shouldn’t be paying for college. It is a beautiful campus. Not a big party scene, but I appreciate that. I am at college to learn. The dorms are clean, and the RAs on each hall truly desire to build a relationship with the students. There are many student life activities you can get involved in and many ways to get to know people.
