"Attending ORU was one of the best decisions I've made in my entire life. The students, faculty and staff truly set ORU apart. I was equipped and have successfully been prepared for the next season of life. The culture not only inspires and challenges you to dream big but also equips you with resources to pursue those dreams! I would recommend ORU to anyone!"

"Oral Roberts University is a great university to learn and grow. The faculty are approachable and care a great deal about their students. The student body is exceptional with many future world leaders. My area of concentration was intellectually challenging and rewarding. I learned to think independently and felt comfortable challenging all types of thought using excepted research practices."

"The university provided much opportunity for preparing my CV for applying to medical school. They have a 100% acceptance rate to medical school for their honors students, and their other programs are excellent as well, such as nursing and business. I had lots of opportunities for extracurricular activities, work study, research, etc. Campus life was excellent and I loved living in the dorms. I'm good friends with several people who lived on my floor freshman year."

"The College of Business at ORU has far surpassed my already high expectations. While professors offer challenging, well planned, and effective courses, they do even more outside of the classroom to prepare students for life after graduation. The various clubs, seminars, and internships that have been at my disposal have pushed me to grow and reach my professional goals. In my experience with students from other universities, they simply do not exhibit the academic or professional competence, skills, or experience that ORU has given me. In addition to fantastic academics, ORU offers a campus life that is both exciting and encouraging. They do a great job of building community through various events. I have created friendships here that will last a lifetime, and for that I am extremely grateful. While the dining options on campus are less than spectacular, there are plenty of options within a mile of the dorms, and most of them even accept EagleBucks and offer student discounts. ORU has given me the best college experience I ever could have imagined. I will graduate in less than three months and could not be more happy with the choice I made four years ago. I would recommend ORU to anyone that was considering it."

Degree: Public Relations
Graduation Year: 2009
"I was a transfer student to ORU. I went to a community college for two years to knock out my prerequisites on the cheap. Transferring into ORU was very easy and they accepted almost all (if not all) of my credits. The professors really care about the students and are passionate about their fields. Cristi Freudenrich is an amazing educator and mentor, I still keep in contact with her today. The rules have relaxed slightly since I was a student there, but it was great having a set of boundaries. I thought I knew everything when I was in college, but looking back I'm glad that I chose a school that would keep me in check and not let me go off the deep end, like I may have going to a public university. The relationships I made there are the best relationships I have ever made. True, life-long friends with similar life values and goals. If I could do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing."

"I loved the experience at ORU; now it's on to grad school. It's a great Christian school, and the school and most of the students are true to that. My biggest issue is that teacher pay is very low compared to other Oklahoma universities. Also, SA wastes far too much money on useless things."

"The professors at ORU are very nice and really care about you as an individual. However, they freely admit that their history programs services mostly people who are planning on working in K 12, as opposed to doing history in academia. This results in a lack of opportunities for attending and presenting at conferences or the classes being rigorous enough to prepare you for a top tier grad program. Therefore, this is a great program if you are looking for lot of one on one time with the professors and are looking to teach K12. However, if you are looking to attend grad school, you might to look somewhere else."
