Oklahoma Wesleyan University Reviews
OKWU shines brightest with it's faculty. The professors show genuine care that is rarely found elsewhere. They will walk with you through any difficulty that you are having. I was struggling in a couple of my classes due to my crazy life schedule, and my professors were willing to meet with me and find a way to help me succeed. As far as culture goes, there isn't a great representation of personalities. It is heavy on white conservatives, unless you're in sports. But the people have strong character and integrity, as it is a solid value within the school's doctrine. If you want to be in an environment filled with high quality individuals, Oklahoma Wesleyan University may be the place for you!
Overall, Oklahoma Wesleyan is a good school to attend that values Christian morals. The smaller classroom sizes allow professors to know students by name. It is easy to get to know people and build friendships. Although the first-year accommodations aren't the best for first-year students, there are some decent dorms available to most from sophomore to senior year. The school has successful soccer and baseball programs which bring a spirit of competition to the school. The city of Bartlesville is also a very safe place to live in with a very low crime rate. Although since the city is small and quiet, the typical college party life suffers because of it.
This semester with the recent pandemic, most classes were transferred online, but not every class transferred well. Some professors took this as an opportunity to better themselves and have a better understanding as to what resources they could implement later in other classes, others became stagnant and the quality of their teaching suffered because of it.
