If you choose not to be involved, you may feel overlooked and sad at times. It is a small University and everyone knows everyone, so once you are involved, you will see a familiar, friendly face everywhere you go!

Obviously faith is still sprinkled in as it is a Christian college, but those discussions mostly prompted by the students, not forced by the nursing professors.

I am graduating with a wonderful mentor who is one of my professors and a great group of friends. But OBU is what you make of it. Campus life is nonexistent outside of intermurals if you are not a student athlete or in choir. Campus police suck, after being harassed by a group of non-OBU guys they told me to stop whining. Similarly, don't expect a facilities management request to ever be responded to. Chapel is so political in nature I get nothing out of it and hate going. But for some bizarre reason (the people I have met there and maybe some Stockholm syndrome) I would spend my four years at OBU if I had the choice to make over again. If it weren't for my friends though and a couple of great professors, my time there would have sucked.

While there are a very few good teachers, the rest of them will have you contemplating quitting school altogether. Corporate only caters to FUTURE students, and then neglects the ones they currently have. They put out fresh food for days that prospective students are touring. But you will never see that once you've enrolled. Another example is, if you eat IN the cafeteria, you may choose from ONE meal in the 5 restaurants. They will not allow you to get a side from more than one. And if you want your food to go, you will receive a frozen sandwich. That's it. There are limited places for students to park, with HUGE fees if you park in a spot meant for visitors. The music department is especially bad. The teachers continuously tell you that you will never make it as a performer and that you should switch to education. One student was harassed and bullied because he wanted to switch out of music altogether. There are LOTS of horror stories. One singer tried to go to graduate school in NY but was told that her teachers had ruined her voice. The required chapel is one big joke where they pretend to be religious but then talk about their sports team while the disinterested students look at their phones and whisper loudly. Oh, and if you don't get ALL your required chapels, you don't graduate.

Many students will talk about the caring and loving professors at OBU and in the Communications department the professors are of top-quality and top-character. I enjoyed the dorms, social life and clubs OBU offers and even though I did not grow up a Baptist, I found a great church family who I still have to this day. OBU is fantastic and I hope many more students will take advantage of what OBU has to offer. Sun, 09 Nov 2014 08:17:51 GMT http://www.studentsreview.com/OK/OBU_comments.html
