| ORU was definately one of the best decisions I've ever made. I've learned so much about myself, about God, and about people while I've been here. I'll leave with friends that I'll keep the rest of my life. There are rules and structure which is not at most other universities, however, it is very mild when compared to other christian schools in the country. ORU was the place where I found God's calling for my life and I would definately recommend this school to anyone who is in search of God's purpose and destiny for their life. |

| Would not reccommend. One of the most horrible mistakes I ever made... Don't do it! Not Christianity, its legalism. If you want to live by all these rules, do something else...like i did...join the Marines! |

| Though I graduated in 1986, I can say without question, that attending Oral Roberts University was one of the best decisions of my life.|
I grew up in a family where faith was a minor consideration. My faith grew more during my ORU years than at any other time of my life. ORU gave me a solid foundation for life. It was a blessing to have Christian professors that cared for my professional growth as well as my spiritual growth. My life continues to be blessed with the life long friends I continue to stay in touch with from ORU. ORU students to know how to have good clean fun. I have a ton of wonderful memories and nothing of which to be ashamed or embarrassed.
If you a looking for a university that is Christ-centered and will challenge you mentally, spiritually and even physically, ORU may be the place God has for you. ORU's whole person philosophy is unique-educating the whole person: spirit, mind and body.
I have attended seminary and grad business school since ORU. ORU gave me a good foundation by insisting that I pursue excellence in all I do.
Is ORU perfect? No, but I know of no university that is perfect. ORU will make you seek in everyway God's will for your life, God's purpose for you. You will also be challenged to pursue a life that is not selfish, but that is giving, after the example of Christ. It was at ORU I determined that I wanted to spend my career making a difference in the life of older adults as a Nursing Home Administrator. ORU was one of many building blocks used in preparing me for this career in which I am totally satisfied. If you want to make your life count, ORU could help prepare you for that adventure.
