What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love Oklahoma Baptist University! The class sizes are small so that students are able to personally get to know their professors and the professors are always willing to be there for you. I love that professors are able to pray over students before class or a big test. It is just unlike any other college that I’ve toured and I’m glad to call OBU my home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

It is very strict. The food is sometimes good, but not often. They raise tuition each year. Dorms have strict hours when the opposite gender may be there. The dorms are old and small for the more affordable option. Most things here are very expensive, which isn't great when they limit the things you can do when you pay thousands of dollars to attend here. If I knew this is how the school was, I would have gone somewhere else when I signed.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Oklahoma Baptist University (OBU) is a private liberal arts college that certainly lives up to its reputation. My class has about - and this is a rough estimate - 200 people in it, which is just the right size to make campus seem cozy but not overly small. Due to the size, you have the opportunity to get to know your professors and to not be sitting in a lecture hall, very confused and unable to ask questions. The grounds are beautiful, as are both the old and new buildings. I've lived about 20 minutes away from OBU my entire life, and I've always loved the town its located in. While the Christian-based teaching might not be for everyone, I honestly can't see myself anywhere but OBU.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I am a big fan of my university. I do believe that some people have strong opinions and no hesitation to voice them, even if they aren't popular. Academics are very advanced and there is always a challenge, which I enjoy. The athletic program is starting to take off, and athletes make up a majority of the school's population. I would not want to go anywhere else.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

For me, Oklahoma Baptist University was like coming home. I was shy about going to college and afraid of not knowing anyone. Oklahoma Baptist University has a Welcome Week where you get to know your incoming classmates as well as upperclassmen. I became close friends with multiple people in my Welcome Week Group that I am still close friends with today. During Welcome Week the leaders teach the freshmen "Ka-Rip," the OBU fight song, and we have "Ka-Rip War." Throughout the year Oklahoma Baptist University does multiple fundraisers for local charities; this is a time where the student body comes together in a huge way. One of the most looked forward to events during the fundraisers is the "Whole Milk 2 Mile." Students pay money to participate in this event. During the "Whole Milk 2 Mile" students dress up in crazy, outrageous costumes. Students must run 8 laps around the center oval of campus. Each lap students run they must drink a cup of whole milk; some people even dye their milk different colors. Obviously there is a lot of vomiting involved when students are running 2 miles and each quarter mile are drinking milk. It is not so much about a race to see who wins as it is an entertaining event where the campus comes together to raise money for a good cause. There are many more amazing events like this that causes the student body to gather together just to have some fun!

I love it! There is always something going on and it is a great atmosphere. I love the people there, they are all so kind and welcoming. I am proud to be apart of OBU! I love what it stands for. It’s a really great college, everyone wants you to succeed and I really love that about this school.

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.
