ORU offers, hands down, the best accounting programQuite BrightAccounting
ORU offers, hands down, the best accounting program in the state. Our professors are extremely knowledgeable, and prepare homework, projects, and exams that push you to truly understand the content. They are also very well connected in the accounting community and help students with accounting internships and summer jobs that provide real world experience. I have yet to meet an accounting student from another university that has comparable skills and understanding to that of mine or my fellow ORU accountants.

I have never had as much fun as I have in my four years at ORU. I will be graduating in 3 months and am terribly sad that I have to leave such a great university. Every time I visit friends at the frats and sororities of state schools, I leave thankful that I chose to attend ORU. I highly recommend ORU to anyone considering it.

I could go on for hours, but I'mQuite BrightCommunications
I could go on for hours, but I'm just gonna pick five highlights for now. I'll probably be back in a year or so once I finish my degree.

- ORU does not prepare you to be a successful adult, it prepares you for being a mindless drone paying your tithes every Sunday.

- In addition to ridiculous "security" rules such as curfew and mandatory hall meetings at 11:00 pm, students find themselves under a highly restrictive dress code.

- They don't follow through with anything at all. Ever. And who can blame them? Their hands are just so freaking tied up with issues such as not updating course work from the 1950s, finding ridiculous reasons to fine students more money, and figuring out where to waste this obscene amount of money next.

- Students are required to be in a ?health fitness? classes every semester. Another alumnus called HPE ?the product of a brainstorming session from several decades ago titled How to Most Effectively Waste a Student's Time and Money,? and never has anything sounded so accurate. - ORU worships money more than anything else. It seemed like everywhere I turned I was being fined for ridiculous things.

Oral Roberts is by FAR the worst universityQuite BrightNursing
Oral Roberts is by FAR the worst university I have ever been to. I have never met ruder people in my life than on this campus and that says a lot considering I went to a public state university before this. Christ is not the center of most of these students. They are rude, disrespectful, and have no consideration for other peoples feelings. Teachers spoon-feed students and even though nursing SHOULD be challenging, it usually is not. This school's mentality is totally stuck in the 60's and needs to get with the times or this school is going into the crapper. If you are considering coming here, DONT. GO TO A PUBLIC SCHOOL WHERE YOU WILL ACTUALLY LEARN LIFE SKILLS AND LEARN HOW NOT TO BE AN ABSOLUTE DICK.
