The University of Oklahoma has a nice campus, and I was satisfied overall with my education. However, the student life is way too centered on greek life, and the diversity of student clubs and activities is poor compared with a school like UT. All of the student organizations at OU are run by Greek life members, so for students that are not in Greek life, I would not recommend it. The school is very expensive to attend out of state and there have been multiple racist incidents at the school just within the last few years. Most of the buildings are nice, but OU recently wasted millions of tuition dollars building upperclassmen dorms that there was 0 demand for, and now the university isn't renewing their lease on the buildings that they JUST built. What a waste of money!

I love going to OU! Because I am in greek life, I have met so many amazing people from different backgrounds! Norman is the perfect college town, however I wish there were more healthy food options. During fall semester, everyone's favorite days are football game days. Tailgates are a great weekend activity and a fun environment to meet new people in! The amount of Sooner pride is astounding! The community OU has established is one that cannot be topped. That being said, I would love to see them renovate the freshman dorms and fix the terrible problem they have with parking. It's time for a change. Boomer Sooner!
I really liked my freshman year OU! You are required to live in the dorms (towers for freshman) and this was the only drawback. The towers are very old and have humidity/mold problems. They have newer housing options but they are expensive. The food in the Caf is awesome! They do a lot trying to get you involved with groups on campus. Definitely attend the orientation offered. Professors were as you would expect, some good, some bad. But that was just Gen Ed stuff. I would definitely recommend OU!
