I absolutely love OKCU, people here are so kind and accepting of everyone else. There are so many options and opportunities on campus in the way of clubs, organizations, internships, etc. and if there isn't a club for what you want it is so easy to make your own! The professors are all amazing and are all willing to help you in any way they can and are extremely personable. All the food at the cafeteria is also really good, Mrs. June makes the best sandwiches and quesadillas and Willy makes amazing breakfasts and fresh grilled options

I love all of my classes and the student life is great!Everything is close together and easy to walk to and the students are all supportive of each other no matter what major. Greek life is great here and its a good way to make friends and get involved on campus. The caf is great but sometimes is could use a little work in the freshness of the food. The performing arts programs here are amazing, and the list of successful alums is outstanding! It's why I chose this school!
As a student athlete and musician at Oklahoma City University, I experience a wide variety of things. One day I will be playing volleyball or watching another sport compete, the next day I will be watching my roommate act in a play. Everyday is a different day and it is a great experience. It is an everyday thing to hear students singing on their way to class. I also hear different languages and accents all around campus. OCU has a very diverse group of students, they come from all around the country to earn their degree from here. I feel that my college experience is more diverse than most!
