What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is a great university that teaches you core values that better prepares you for the outside world. They integrate faith in learning so that we may live in the high calling of God. They have facilities that all can use to better their health. The class sizes aren’t too big to where the student gets lost but small enough to where the student gets to have individual time with each professor.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am convinced OBU is the best place on earth. I was definitely skeptical of going to a Christian university at first, but after being here I cannot imagine being anywhere else. The people here are some of the most welcoming and kindest people you will ever meet and I always say it is the easiest place to make friends. I have loved every professor I have had, you can tell that they do genuinely care about you and your well-being. I have always felt comfortable talking to them about anything that is bothering me and they are happy to answer any questions. Of course, nothing is perfect, Shawnee (the town OBU is in) does not have that many activities or attractions, so we frequently drive to Oklahoma City for things. But otherwise, I have found Shawnee to be a great little city to live in. Also, be prepared to work harder here than you would at a state college or a community college considering it is a private university it is more academically challenging. The workload is manageable, you just cannot slack off and it helps if you are passionate about getting your education. I am also confident that the university has my best interest at heart as they are extremely Christ-centered, making the atmosphere one of positivity and inclusion. Coming to OBU I have never felt like just a number, I feel wanted and appreciated by almost everyone. I encourage anyone that is even considering OBU to come and visit the campus and talk face to face with the people, you will not regret it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love OBU for all that it stands for and the fantastic education it provides. Great school. Great people. Great place to be. I plan on going here for my college career and cannot wait. I am close to quite a few alumni and they all say fantastic things about the life at OBU, they even tell me that they wish they could come back and do it all again. You only get that at a very special place. I love OBU, and can't wait to be there.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

OBU is a very small campus, where you know everybody. The teachers are always there and ready to assist you no matter what. The classes only have about 15 people in them and the teaching is very hard. The teachers try to push you and make you study. The success center is open and it is very helpful to students that are struggling. It is expensive to go here. There are not many teams, and the sports they do have, not everybody supports them. The dorms are either really nice or really awful, there is none that are in between. The food on campus is not very good, but there are many places you can go out and eat at. They do not have frats or anything like that but they do have social clubs you can join. They are similar to frats. They also have some other clubs you can join. They also have chapel, and expect you to get 100 total throughout the year. The diversity here is very small.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I totally loved it!! Everybody was really nice, and the staff we talked with were really helpful and answered all the questions we had. The campus was super nice, and it wasn't big, which I loved. I was looking at their Theatre department, which is what I wanted to go for, and it was amazing. I can't wait to enroll!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

OBU is a great school because it has a great education program but also instills good values and characteristics in the student body. The community is very involved and it’s super easy to get plugged in. All the teachers and faculty are readily available if you have questions or just want to talk. Oklahoma Baptist is a great school and I’m blessed to be attending there this Fall.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oklahoma Baptist University is a wonderful place to attend school. The staff is extremely helpful and the students are very kind. OBU has always felt like home whenever I am on campus and I could not imagine myself anywhere else. Although it is a private university, it is made very affordable to those who take the time and effort to readily apply themselves. Its academic and financial advisers are always there and never hesitate to answer any questions you may have. The school has wonderful chapel services with great speakers and worship. Overall, OBU is a small school with a big personality to grow into.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

OBU, overall, is a pretty good school. It's a great learning environment and professors are always available when you need them. However, sometimes things need to be taken into your own hands because academic advisors are more willing to let you do their job for them and are more likely to confirm your schedule for the next semester than help you figure out what you need. At least, that's my experience.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I've met some great people, but honestly I wish I'd gone somewhere else. Administration is at constant war with any faculty "dangerous" enough to have opinions and so there's a very high turnover rate. There are a number of policies that show a clear preference for squeezing every last cent out of students over promoting the professed Christian values, and it's a rather hostile environment towards the arts or other creative majors, though the professors do an amazing job in spite of it. Even as a small school the variety of electives is often disappointing, all of the good ones often only being offered once every two years and at the same time. Unless you're coming for nursing, business, or ministry, it's not a great environment.
