What is your overall opinion of this school?

From my first visit to my freshman move in day I have had nothing but praise for this school. OBU is a place I will always call home; I know I will make friendships everyday and the opportunities are going to be endless. Anyone considering OBU should definitely take the trip and spend the night on campus through one of the special visiting days. Oklahoma Baptist University is very special to me and I am 100% glad that my mom dragged me out of bed one morning and go visit this school.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love it here! Everyone is loving and welcoming and, as cheesy as it sounds, it feels like home and we're one huge family. The campus is small so it's easy to get everywhere fairly quickly. And there are tons of ways to get involved on and off campus. Also, our campus is gorgeous!!

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I absolutely love being at Oklahoma Baptist. Ever since the first time i stepped onto the campus, i've felt at home and that i belong there. There have been plenty of campus activities, major campus traditions, closeness between the students, and an amazing educational program that fits my major. I really could not think of myself being at a different school then this one.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Overall, OBU is a competitive and challenging academic institution. Most colleges are equal to or greater than ivy-league level instruction and facilities are beautiful. The college feels homey and is quite small - a boon for many. OBU is a great place to form lifelong relationships and the start of a great career.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In the three months that I have been at Oklahoma Baptist University, I have experienced nothing but great things. The inviting atmosphere and people on campus are some of the main reasons why my freshman year has been so enjoyable. The academics are tough, but the professors are always willing to help if a student has a problem. Overall, OBU is an exceptional college that wants its students to have fun and receive a good education at the same time.

An excellent school. A beautiful campus, genuine friends, professors that care about more than just assignments, and I place that God is using to change my life and make me into a better person.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

I would tell myself to not be afraid to put myself out there and to branch off from everything I had known and was comfortable with. I shouldn't be afraid to join new clubs/activities or to go out with new friends. There are a whole bunch of opportunities! I would tell myself that I need to go into college chasing a career I want to pursue and that I am passionate about and that I shouldn't let those around me tell me what it is I should be doing with my future. I would tell myself to be prepared for some of the best memories of my life but also to be prepared for some of the biggest heartbreaks of my life and to not be afraid to let those around me help me and bring me comfort. Finally, I would tell myself to not go into college trying to be the person I think everyone wants me to be but to be the person I truly am. It is then that you make true and honest friendships that will last a lifetime.

What's unique about your campus?

They try and plan so many activities for the students to help keep them on campus and involved. They highly encourage getting involved on campus and making new friends. I think this is a good way to keep kids on campus and to not go off campus and potentially get in trouble because they have nothing better to do. I also consider the best part to be how friendly and welcoming the upperclassmen and staff are. They're very helpful and go well out of their way to help to the best of their ability.

What do you brag about most when you tell your friends about your school?

How friendly and welcoming the students and staff are. There are always people there to help you in whatever situation you are in. This is a university that truly cares about its students.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back in time and give advice to my senior self, I would say, "Get over yourself! It is okay to ask for help. If you feel depressed, it is okay (and encouraged) to go to the University Counseling Center. If you are struggling and stressed about a paper, go to the professor's office. They are there to encourage and instruct. They want to know you. Make Shawnee your home. Don't go home on the weekends because you're afraid of growing up. Shawnee is your home and will likely be your home for quite some time. Get to know people of all ages. You will be surprised at what this diversity can teach you. Be adventurous! See the world! Let yourself be who you are and don't hide that from the world. Let your joy shine!"

What's unique about your campus?

The best thing about OBU is the way the professors genuinely care about the students. We are expected to attend most class class periods. If we don't, the professors question us about it. They are always suggesting that we can come by their offices during office hours. They are very approachable.

What's the most frustrating thing about your school?

The most frustrating thing about OBU is the feeling that you have to be perfect. In reality, no one expects that from you, but sometimes it feels that way. Sometimes I feel like I have to be perfect like everyone else seems to be. I forget that they are human too. No one is without fault. Some of us may be Christians, but we are fallible as well.

What should every freshman at your school know before they start?

If I could go back and talk to my senior self I would tell myself to keep going kid! I promised to make my senior year as happy as possible. I got the most unique senior award out of an estimated 650 student class. I enjoyed making people laugh and think a little bit. I would tell myself to keep my love of different types of people, because it helped me make the diverse group of friends I have at my college now. My aunt got in a nearly fatal accident leaving her brain damaged. I had to quit basketball but was still able to play soccer. I was worried I would lose my chance to compete at a collegiate level. I would tell myself to relax and be there for my family, because that dream would be fulfilled and everything would be ok. I would tell myself to just keep going, because everything will work out. I would promise this to myself.
