Quest Day Experience

If my daughter is going to attend college 9 hours away from home, I don’t think there’s a campus I’d be anymore confident in than ORU.

Quest Day Experience

My mother and I were ready to give up on finding a good college and we didn’t know much about ORU but weren’t gonna get our hopes up, but it was amazing! Everyone was so kind and we really felt the presence of the Holy Spirit the whole time and we felt a peace the whole time. We really feel that ORU is the place for me. I can’t wait to start!
