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!

My experience at Oral Roberts University has been amazing! The faculty, advisors and students are some of the nicest people I've ever met. Almost all of my professors are very understanding and patient with students and care about their success in the class. Oral Roberts is a Christian university and so when you arrive from the very first day you will feel God's love through the people on campus. One of my most favorite events held on campus is Campus Worship. There is nothing like it. Everyone on campus gathers into the chapel to praise and worship. It feels like a concert!
Classes are easy and teachers are nice! Of course there are some who aren't, but the nice ones are more prevailing. The only thing is if you transfer in anything be persistent about registrar's and admissions to actually let those credits transfer in. Also be aware that there is class fees they don't tell you about until you are half way in the semester and you can't register for next semester. So basically be prepared for "adulting" A LOT right off the bat(I mean its college so you had to know that was coming). Also make sure to get a whole bunch of scholarships so you can not fret about financial stuff and enjoy the college life and things like partyfestival,the random dancing events, and (if you live on campus) the brother-sister wing events(which are totally awesome and a great way to connect and socialize)! Also best meal plan to get is the 10 days a week and $350 sodexo bucks because it literally lasts you a semester and saga(cafeteria) is on and off good with food!
