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!

My experience has been good at okwu, but i was actually short on money this year because okwu is one of the most expensive schools but it is a great school and i love it and the people and the basketball program, i didn’t receive the Perkins loan this year because it is no longer available to private Christian schools so i had to find a co-signer and get co-signed, and i have all the money i had to him as collateral to do it until i pay it back so i am currently really broke and could use the extra money for books and school stuff, food, etc, i can’t really work much at the moment because i am really busy with school and basketball so i don’t have much time to work, it would be a really big blessing if i was to receive this, thank you for listening!
Great christian school! Has its pros and cons, but overall a great learning and community experience.
