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 feel that I got a great educationCommunications
I feel that I got a great education in a wonderful environment at ORU. I gained a lot of knowledge and learned the basics in a wide variety of fields. Many of the friends I made in college are now successful and influential and are a good network of people to know.

The codes of conduct seemed daunting when I first read them, but they turned out to be no big deal at all. Of special note is the attitude of the staff and faculty: rather than dismiss you if you got into trouble with classes or behavior, they would actually investigate to see if they could help. That was an amazing surprise.

The chapels were a bit humdrum despite several big name speakers/preachers. I think it was due mostly to the midday timing, because Sunday night Campus Church services were awesome!I also loved the distinctive architecture at the school, though while I was there they had trouble keeping it in proper repair. I have heard that has changed for the better since I graduated.

A lot of people said that the courseworkNot so brightPreMed and Medical
A lot of people said that the coursework was not challenging. no, your MAJOR is not challenging, haha. Unless you go to an ivy league school, a business major is a joke unless it is more specified, such as business/health management or finance. My grandmother got a business degree when she was in her 70s. I have a premedical concentration, and our med school acceptance rate is 87 percent. The public schools in my home state have an 18-25 percent med school rate. It's challenging, hard, and.... very good. You get out of this school what you put into it. I am moderate liberal, so i've had my share of bad experiences from close-minded individuals, but honestly, it's really not that bad of a school. You get used to the dress code after the first year. I have absolutely no problem with dressing in nice clothing. It's not like they force us to wear a dress. Some people are talking about how guys in EMR show up naked to hall meetings. I didn't realize being naked was apparently against christianity? hahaha. the only thing i can say in a negative aspect is that a lot of people are constantly on the defensive because they feel that everyone judges them for not being christian enough, and a lot of people are like the guy below me somewhere that freaked out that people were drinking on a college campus because it's "against God" or something stupid. Everyone gets offended a lot. But people tend to make very close friends for life. my parents have kept their friends for about 25 years now.
