What I have extremely admired and the sole reason for my existence at OLLU is the very small classes. This is very beneficial because when having an issue when understanding an assignment or any question I had at all, I am able to contact my professors with clarity that I will soon be replied back to. When looking for a college to go to, this was the most important, that the classes were small and I would get the attention I need. OLLU does have recycling bins, in class rooms, out on the lawn where everyone walks. The place where I've noticed where they do not have recycling bins is the cafeteria! The main place where people eat and throw their stuff away. This is one thing OLLU can change.

I have taken a number of online classes at OLLU from different departments. Every class has been easy to organize and find your way through digitally, even with the absence of a professor. The materials are easily found, and learning objectives are always clearly emphasized.
Even during the Corona crisis, where every class transitioned to an online format for the end of the semester, these remained the same, even with instructors that were not trained to teach online classes. This shows me that the professors were guided appropriately in the process of instructing online classes by the institution itself and that every instructor is taught the same way in order to make all online classes maintain their high status across all departments.
I am an international student, which prohibits me from taking more than 2 online classes every semester, but I would definitely not have an issue with taking more than that if I was able to.
A very beautiful university that has everything that you need in a smaller area. Not the biggest campus, but it proves to be convenient, as you will never have to traverse long distances to reach the place you have to be, whether it is your classroom, the dorms, the library, the chapel, or the student activity center.
The sense of community is something the school prides itself on. The teacher love to help the students in any way they can, and multiple events are planned daily by both students, professors, and exterior sources to create stronger bonds between the members of the university.
The buildings of the university are breathtaking in terms of visual appeal, it almost looks like a castle, and the large chapel is beautifully implemented into the main building.
The opportunities to dine are also very good at this school, the cafeteria provides a lot of different types of food, and there is always food that will satisfy every type of diet.
