The campus is beautiful

Jul 27 2014Business - Management and Administration
The campus is beautiful. The dorms are disgusting. Need updating looks like nothing has been done to them since the 60's. Cold Brick wall no drywall on dorm walls. Feels like you live in a basement.

The city surrounding the school is povety stricken with bikers and brew fest homeless looking people walking the streets, hobos sitting on the corners of the street. The hospital is from the Stone Age so do not get sick. DO NOT GO HERE !!! The school needs to invest in the surrounding community. Walmart is the dirtiest Walmart I have ever seen. If you want to study in a poverty stricken city this is the place. Food on food plan is the worst. Find another school.

Subject matter is interesting and facilities are great

Nov 05 2013Nursing
Subject matter is interesting and facilities are great. Some teaching faculty genuinely care about students and are so helpful. I am thankful for these instructors. Biggest issue is the leadership and administration attitudes and policies.

Some nursing faculty are very discouraging in the manner they communicate with students. New nursing students are lectured at and spoken to as if they are children and not responsible adults. There is not a feeling that this is student-centered program and about student success, but rather about the program itself and what the faculty prefers and wants it to be.

Scheduling is extremely inflexible. And faculty do not seem to care that you have to work to make a living outside of the nursing program. New students are told that nursing program should be their number one priority no matter what and this isn't open to the reality of many students lives. Particularly non-traditional students who may have families or need to work to live and make ends meet, among commuting to school, etc. Concerning commuting, classes are scheduled so unnecessarily early as to make commuter driving safety an issue. Faculty have stated that they do not consider commuting time and thus, commuting students in their decision-making. This and the fact that you have no say in your schedule, should really be advertised prior to admittance into the program. As some students do require a school that can work with them within the structure and limits of the system of course.

Some faculty do not seem professional in discussing other students with other faculty members. An instructor also passive aggressively said that students were not working hard enough and "getting" it in class and that her teaching was not at fault.

Scheduling is done very last minute.
They are not a very seasoned nursing school, so perhaps they feel they have a lot to prove, I don't know. But leadership needs some improvement for sure. Other than that, great potential for a nursing program and located at a great school and campus!

OU is a beautiful campus but there is

Apr 04 2014Education
OU is a beautiful campus but there is NO DIVERSITY and everyone from OHIO...... I rather transfer to a better academic school than this one. I wouldn't consider "OU" has a good school just lower average on academics but party life.. more than average. IF YOU WANT TO GO TO A GOOD ACADEMIC SCHOOL.... STAY AWAY!

I am from out of state and it sucks being from out of state because so many people go home and live close by. Transportation to airport can be annoying and very limited. It also not that diverse especially the undergraduate. It seems that people rather be known as a top party school than actually focus on their academics and people only choose to go here for the partying....seriously? Social life is the SAME every friday bars...after the house's only fun if you have connections and know a bunch of people otherwise nope, nothing to do on the weekends except party...but even partying gets boring I rather sit in my room and watch Netflix.

My first year dorm experience SUCKED....people I live with are still in the high school phase and all friends from high school ( DON'T live with your friends from high school ....go out and meet NEW PEOPLE or you won't meet anyone else if you're going to be with your friends from high school 24/7.

I love OU as a campus its so beautiful. The dining hall food gets so boring after a while same thing every day..... It is in the middle of nowhere and there nothing to do especially if you don't have a car, but even if you have a car there is rarely anywhere to go since its in the middle of NOWHERE. Uptown is nice but gets boring after a while. Everyone here just wants to party every day of the week rather than focus on their school work. I am thinking about transferring to a school with more diversity and closer to home and not to far in the middle of NOWHERE. If you live in OHIO and love to party and don't like diversity school is for you... but if you're out-of-state, it's annoying, it's in the middle of nowhere no diversity everyone from ohio and it sucks...people are nice I rather go to a better academic school with diversity.
