What Students Are Saying

4.03 Average Rating
Attend all of your classes--attendance is taken and your grade will be knocked down if you miss more than the amount of skips you have.
Attend all chapel services--you get fined $50 if you skip a service.
Take in everything the school has to offer. It'll truly change your life.
Shelby from Harrison, AR
I just have one thing to say, go for it! If you have a heart to be at ORU, go for it! That is what I live by because I have a tendency to worry too much. I have to remember that I am not always in control and sometimes I need to follow what I believe God is telling me to do. Just go for it!
Justine from Altus, OK
People are generally friendly at ORU and enjoy having a good time. Be bold and show yourself friendly. Soon you won't have any problem maintaining an active social life. However, make sure that you leave yourself time to study because exams and final papers can creep up on you before you know it.
Jordan from Clermont, FL
Come to a College Weekend and experience all that ORU has to offer. If you can't make it to a college weekend, at least schedule a campus and if you can, an overnight visit. I could tell you the greatest things about ORU but in order to truly understand how great of a school it is, I would highly recommend you to come and see for yourself.
Student from Houston, TX
I would definitely say that ORU will exceed your expectations- It certainly exceeded mine! The best advice I can give is to check out ORU during College Weekend, fly/drive to campus and see if you enjoy it. That's probably the best thing for a prospective student to do.
Chris from Tulsa, OK
Come check out ORU! We have College Weekends every fall and spring, and I can guarantee that we will do our best to make you feel welcome!
On a more practical note, ORU will do their best to help you afford an education here. No matter who you are, funds are within your reach. Apply for scholarships and grants, or even look for a work-study job; opportunities are abundant.
Sarah from Fort Worth, TX
Your goal for college is not to get a degree. Your goal is to get an education. Oral Roberts University is designed to give you the education and the knowledge you need to be the best at what you will do.
Rachel from Tulsa, OK
My advice for everyone is to get involved. The best way to make a transition easier is to find people whom you can go to during this challenging time. Join clubs and organizations, be involved with Wing Events, and talk to people in your classes. College will be a much more enjoyable experience the sooner you find someone to share it with.
Amber from Tulsa, OK
Network. Network. Network. I cannot stress this point enough. Yes, keep your grades up, but also- get to know the people sitting next to you in class. Get to know your floor-mates, and those around you at school. You are attending a University of world changers, and your future will lie among these men and women. The ties you will find at ORU will stay for a lifetime and you will not regret it.
John from Tulsa, OK
Do your homework, use available on campus resources like the library, tutors, and your teachers. All the teachers want you to succeed and enjoy being here.
