    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.

    ORU offers a blend of personalized instruction from faculty with low student to professor ratios with a large enough student body to support a variety of professors in each discipline. The new Global Learning Center provides cutting edge virtual reality learning opportunities, the emphasis of development of body, mind, and spirit is unique among universities, and I love the diverse, international student body from 90+ countries!
    School is very cliquey! Many students go to high school in Tulsa and then end up here with their friend groups who aren't willing to meet new people or add them to the group. There are lots of fake people here since we are required to sign an honor code. It can be challenging to find genuine people here. The campus is beautiful but there is not much happening. There is ALOT of diversity and international students. Don't come here unless your main goal is to get closer to God, you miss out on the college experience in a lot of ways.
