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 came from a rural area and was concerned about being on such a large campus. OU provides so many opportunities for students to meet. I also found organizations that provide ways to participate on campus and make new friends. OU provides great professors that work to ensure students' success. I live in the athletic dorms, I am not an athlete. They are required to have a percentage of non-athletes in the dorm. I feel very safe and the accommodations are great! We have our own cafeteria in the dorm and there is a great variety of healthy food to choose from. I would recommend the University of Oklahoma to everyone looking for a great college experience.
Currently completing an online Masters in Education. This is the first year this program has been offered (21st century teaching and learning). What I have been most pleased with is that it is truly an online course. Further, all of the professors have been willing to change their content to fit the needs of the cohort. Yes, this is a cohort style Masters, which means you complete all the requirements with a small group that moves through the steps at exactly the same time. The ability to collaborate with these great educators has been invaluable!
