The school has all the benefits of a private college with the public college prices. The atmosphere is great. The people and staff at the university are all friendly and have you in their best interest. There are a ton of opportunities for you to be involved on campus as well. All in all, USAO is a fantastic school!
Review University of Science & Arts of Oklahoma
USAO is a liberal haven in the middle of a conservative state. The students and faculty are very accepting and try their best to provide students with a quality liberal arts education. In fact they are the only school in the state that does. You get to know your classmates and professors really well and it is easy to foster relationships with others on the small campus; however, there is not much to do in the town of Chickasha, so prepare to be bored a lot.
It's small school, very affordable, and the interdisciplinary curriculum makes sure that you are constantly critically thinking. It's a very personal college and a great school to attend.
