Describe how your school looks to someone who's never seen it.

Oklahoma City University is the heart of Oklahoma City-- The students and faculty are working to produce some of the best people we believe possible, through quality education, and more than that, a posotive environment where students can express themselves creatively, spiritually and intellectually.

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

My advice to anyone would be to understand that it's very hard to know exactly what you want to do with your life. Some people are able to know long before they ever get to college, but for some people, college is part of that process. So, quite crucial that when you are considering colleges, you find a place that you are pertty sure you can feel comfortable in. You need to find a place that feels like it could be home for you. Secondly, at least based on my own experience, I think it's very importnat that students find a place that's far enough away from home that you can't live with your folks. I love my parents dearly, but I'm so glad that I've gotten far enough away from home that I'm able to create relationships with people that are true and deep, and will last a lifetime. So it's important, imperative even, to build strong friendships, because college has great potential to be the best, but also the hardest time in yor life.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

People at my school seem to have a very posotive and upbeat attitude towards life in general (or so I would gather based on my own group of friends). So, someone who is a "glass- half-empty" sort of person probably should not attend my school. Also, my school is quite small, so everytime you are on campus, you are likely to see several people who want to talk to you, so if you're a person who likes to hide in the crowds, again, not the place for you.

College is a very excited time. Parents, make sure that your child understands that it is not all fun and college is serious and hard at some times, but you make lifelong friends .

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

My advice to give to the parents and students are to go visit the college or university that they are interested in to find what majors are available at that college. The parents and students should see if what they are looking for are there. Meet the professors and get to know the environment would help the students to see if that college is right for them. Basically, get to know the college that they are interested in and see what they have to offer.

What do you consider the worst thing about your school? Why?

The worst thing about my school is not having enough financial aids for more students to attend this university. Oklahoma City University is a private school. The tuition fees are expensive. I couldn't attend this school if I don't have the scholarship to help me out. Lot of high school students are missing out their opportunity to attend this school because of the financial aid problem. I think this university is great, but the expensive to get into this university is very high for those who don't have the money to attend.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anybody should have the opportunity to attend this school if they are willing to work hard for his or her future and to seek what they want in their lives.

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

Don't come to college expecting it to be as easy as high school. It shouldn't be. Come expecting to meet many new people who are very different from you. Also, make sure that you look at all of your options. Go on several campus visits. Don't settle for any university just because of one thing. You want the whole package. You will be attending this college (hopefully) for the next four years and you don't want to regret the choice you made.

What kind of person should not attend this school?

Someone who is homophobic, doesn't like to work hard, or who does not like the Arts.

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

As an athlete the one question I would recommend is, "If you weren't playing your sport, would you still want to attend this school?" Make sure you feel like you fit in at the school. Ask current students their honest opinion about the school, the food, the social life, the professors, and any other insights they want to share. College is not just school, it will become your home for at least four years, make sure you pick a school where you will enjoy living for that period of time. When you do finally make a decision, get involved from the start. Go to freshmen orientation, talk to people, and don't be shy as hard as that may be. You don't know anyone, you may be intimidated, but so is every other person there. Everyone is new; no one knows each other so don't be afraid to introduce yourself. Get involved in groups, but make sure to leave plenty of time for your school work. Never forget, you are there first to get an education, and second to make lifelong friends and have a good time.

Describe the students at your school.

My classmates are very open-minded and usually friendly, but some are a little pompous (the ego is a factor at a performance-based school) and it can be difficult to deal with.

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

If I could give potential incoming college students/parents advice, I would say carefully choose the schools they apply to, and invest in college visits. It is obviously a big decision, and there are factors about a college that a student may not consider until arrive. Of course the field of study is the most important, but smaller factors like the dorms, cafeteria, and general atmosphere of the campus can seriously effect the experience. Once students arrive at college, I would tell them to seize every opportunity. There are opportunities to network once you enter college, even as a freshman, and they are just as important as schoolwork and exams. To me, school isn't all about the grades, it is about discovering what direction you want your life to take. If you don't seize opportunities outside the classroom, you could miss out on something that could change your life and what you want to do with it. Be open to new experiences and don't be exclusive. Staying in a bubble with people of your same major and interests might be easy and comfortable, but you can learn about the world and yourself if you break that bubble.

What kind of person should attend this school?

OCU is very expensive , and it is difficult to afford. Someone with dependable finacial aid would be good for this school. Open-minded students also would be more comfortable at OCU, as it is very liberal and art-focused. It feels like a bubble sometimes, and it is dificult to connect with the real world for me sometimes, so students need to be prepared for a small school. It reminds me of high school at times, and news travels fast, so it is good for students to be comfortable with small communities.

The school is best known for its law program as well as the Registered nursing program that is in the top ten percent of the best Nursing schools in the nation.

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

It is important to know what you ant to go to shool for. It is important that the student finds a school where he/she will feel comfortable on campus and with the surrounding area. When in school, students should make the best of their experience by being apart of the activilies around them. It is important that parents emotionally, and spiritually support the student and allow the student to find themselve. This is a time for change in a young person's life and the parents should repect that and allow the student to find out who they are and know that their parents will be there for them to support them. College is a new life and new culture, the student should be willing to get out and be apart of the campus life and enjoy there time with studying and life away from studying.

What's unique about your campus?

I feel that this school offeres students an opportunity tobetter themselves. The faculty are very supportive and are willing to help their students be successful.

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

Go visit the college and get a feel for the campus and how campus life is. One of the most important things at college is to feel comfortable in the envirement. Also, talk to students other than the ones that the college presents to you so you can get the real story of what goes on on campus.

What kind of person should attend this school?

Anyone who wants to have a supportive community behind them at all times. Anyone who wants to be able to explore areas of interest outside thier major. Anyone who wants to be able to have thier teachers know thier name and thier accopmlishments.
