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.
ORU has been an intricate factor in redefining and molding my mindset and lifestyle to be that of a whole person - One educated in the mind, body, and spirit. Since becoming a student at ORU something about me has changed each day, and I really believe that I'm learning how to truly thrive in life. I do encounter obstacles and challenges, but I'm being trained how to strategically overcome each of them, while going through! It's absolutely amazing. There is not another school on the face of the earth that could compare to Oral Roberts University!
