    My experience at Oral Roberts University has been incredible! The staff and faculty are beyond phenomenal and are willing to do whatever they can to help you succeed in college and life overall. Student life on campus is shockingly more neighborly than I expected. It is not difficult to meet new people and establish short-term and long-term relationships. The academic programs they offer at ORU cover every field in society and all are done at a professional level. But most importantly, the atmosphere that the university carries within its enclosure is often times is heavenly. The peace that is felt walking from class to class is unusually prevalent and a massive aid to students. I am blessed and beyond proud to be a now sophomore at Oral Roberts University, and I hope that you consider becoming a student at this God-Ordained university.
    I went for an ORU visit and I immediately loved it. I attended some of the classes and the teachers were amazing. They prayed with the students before class started and even took time to hear how their day was going. The cafeteria food was pretty good, infact too good, might have to watch my weight when I start school. I loved it!
