What Students Are Saying

4.02 Average Rating
OBU is a school focused on loving God and loving people. The people here want to invest in others and push them to be better mentally, physically, spiritually, and socially. Choosing OBU as my college has been one of the best decisions I have ever made.
Charis from Ponca City, OK
OBU is an amazing university, it is small enough to where it is easy to get to know your professors and make friends on campus. It is also inclusive enough to where you can enjoy the college experience through different on-campus extracurriculars or other activities. I am loving the campus and all of my professors.
