Student & Graduate Reviews (22)
Great place to study petroleum engineering. Top notch faculty and internship opportunities. Campus is absolutely beautiful and there's nothing like a game day in Norman, Oklahoma. School has done a great job attracting really quality students with focus on scholarships for National Merit.
University of Oklahoma (OU) is a remarkable university that has a lot to offer their students. The curriculum is challenging, and there are a lot of activities to be involved with here. Some of the most rewarding experiences of my life have come during my time here at OU. Especially the organizations like ASCE, that gave me an idea of what my life will be like after school and how I can prepare for the change.
OU was a great school for meteorology and is one of the best in the nation. Most classes are in the National Weather Center which gives you firsthand experience working with meteorologists in the field. You will get spoiled by the plethora of internships and work opportunities at OU that will enhance your career.
I will say college is what you make of it. At University of Oklahoma is thorough and requires a considerable amount of work from the student, which implies homework must be completed and understood and classwork taken seriously. The chemical engineering department offered a tutoring session which was of tremendous help to the students in my class. In addition, the engineering program offers various tutoring and mentoring programs as well to keep students on a continuous path of success.
OU is a great campus to learn. Faculty is very nice and well knowledged.
I absolutely loved my experience at OU! The campus is beautiful, and clean. The professors ( for the most part) are wonderful and truly have a passion for what they do and care about their students. They do a good job at having things to do on campus when the weather is nice or especially during finals time they find things to try and give you a break. And of course there is nothing like some Sooner football! My biggest issue was every semester I was there it seemed the tuition price always went up, or some other random fee was added on, plus on top of that the price for books is CRAZY
The University of Oklahoma was a fine choice for me. I wanted to stay in my home state for lower tuition. The University of Oklahoma also offered me excellent scholarships. I would say that my general education classes were average, but I was very happy with the quality of my major and minor courses.
As a music composition student in the Weitzenhoffer Family College of Fine Arts, I received one-on-one instruction from professors who became my friends and mentors. Although the curriculum is largely traditional, my professors made room for me to branch out and study modern genres and find ways to combine my social justice and human relations minors with my major study.
OU is a great university! It's a big school with a "small town" feeling. Teachers provide one-on-one opportunities and various styles of teaching the curriculum. There are lots of opportunities to get involved, learn about other cultures, and be a part of something bigger than yourself! Football is great too :) BOOMER SOONER!
I enjoyed my time as both undergraduate and graduate student of OU. Most of all, I enjoyed speaking to my professors about my projects. My most memorable, and most helpful, encounter with a professor was on in which the professor told me how I actually write as opposed to how I should write. He told me that I write too poetically and that I should write in a way that is simple, easy to understand - almost journalistic. It had not occurred to me, until that moment during my graduate studies, that I had a habit of being esoteric in my writing. I cannot say that I have totally changed my writing habits, by that professor's forthright comments helped me to be successful for the rest of my time as a graduate student. I highly recommend OU if you are planning to pursue a graduate degree.
