University of Oklahoma Reviews

Very big & beautiful school with something for everyone! A lot of opportunities for internships, leadership positions and involvement. A lot of research opportunities and very good professors as well, especially for a public university. Despite the perception, OU is a lot more than just football and greek life. However, I would recommend that after freshman year, you live somewhere within walking distance to campus, because the parking here is absolutely awful and you will absolutely regret commuting to campus and spending nearly 2 hours looking for a parking spot everyday, even with a parking pass that costs hundreds of dollars. Also Dale Hall is a ridiculous building and if you have a class there, get there early because trying to make your way through the crowds in that building can sometimes take a while. The parking situation & Dale Hall is the only thing preventing me from giving this great school 5 stars.

I love it here, the campus is beautiful. You just have to keep your head up and don't let anyone else get you down. The Greek life here is insane, not always in a good way. If thats your thing though, then this is the place for you! Overall the professors are good and there are plenty of things to do on campus. Union Board always makes sure kids have something to do on the weekends. Also, there is a great theatre in the Union and they put on movies that are still out in theaters. The entire campus has basically been renovated since the time I was a freshman.
I love the environment here. Everyone here is so nice and it feels like we're all family. Game days are always really fun! It's such a huge campus with so many people, but it doesn't feel that way. It is very homey. There are plenty of resources if you need help with anything. There are always a lot of events going on as well. There are also a lot of free events going on the South Oval and I think that's pretty cool! There's Action Center tutoring which is free and helps a lot. I love the overall environment and I love all of the opportunities and different organizations that are available to students!
