Campus groups like Student Association, the Chaplain Program, Residential Advisors, and even on-campus employment opportunities will give you an outlet to build lasting friendships and fine-tune your giftings.

Spiritual Life

ORU students are passionate about growing spiritually and making a difference in the world around them. Along with Spirit-empowered chapel services, you will be encouraged to get involved with one of the many ways to impact the world for God’s glory!

Student-led Prayer Movement: Join other students in prayer and worship daily.

Local Outreach: Demonstrate the love of Christ throughout Tulsa and the surrounding areas.

Mission Trips: Apply what you’re learning during your Spring Break or summer. Our trips focus on a variety of work, including evangelism, children’s ministry, service projects, 
business, education, the labor-intensive “Man Team” Tanzania trip, and more. 

Prayer Tower: Located in the center of campus, the Prayer Tower offers prayer rooms and worship areas for one-on-one and collaborative time with the Lord. 

Physical Health

At ORU, we believe healthy choices are part of personal and professional success, which is why we provide programs, services, and facilities to make a healthy lifestyle achievable and fun! With healthy dining options, physical education classes, intercollegiate and intramural sports, there’s something for every interest and inclination.

Technological Focus

You can take full advantage of the technological investment the University has made, whether that’s through the augmented and virtual reality available at the forward-thinking classrooms of the Global Learning Center or through state-of-the-art simulations in the Nursing and Engineering Complex.

That technological bent is infused throughout ORU’s degree programs as well, with undergraduate degrees available in such disciplines as Information Technology, Computer Science,  Medical Technology, Nursing, Communication, Marketing, Digital Communication, and others. 

In addition to the latest in learning resources, undergraduate students in computer-focused degree programs have access to Titan, the fastest (and only) supercomputer in Oklahoma that is, as a rule, used to enhance the undergraduate educational experience. Titan is available across all disciplines to both students and faculty to enable them to use high performance  computing in their research and educational activities. 

Additionally, many of these degree programs are available entirely online, opening educational doors to a much wider variety of student.

OUR ARCHITECTURE

Why include a section about architecture in our “about us” section? Fair question. Our buildings are almost as one-of-a-kind and extraordinary as our students. Just one look at our campus, and you’ll fall in love with our futuristic, art-deco buildings, each of which symbolizes an element of our Christian faith.
