Are you struggling with homework? Do you need help adjusting to ORU? The Global Ambassadors Program (GAP) is an opportunity available for all international students to help every student succeed in achieving a whole-person education. When you get involved with the GAP program, you will have a mentor assigned to you. That mentor will meet with you on a weekly basis to help you achieve a holistic education. Whether that is adjusting to the culture, studying for your big exam, or by playing pool at the Hammer Center, they are there for YOU.
The GAP leaders are chosen through an application and interview process. Those that are chosen to be a GAP leader receive a scholarship for their position. If you are interested in getting involved as a GAP leader next year, please send an email to Sharla Roche at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Writing is difficult for every student, even those that speak English as their first language. We get it that writing is difficult, especially if English is not your first language. That’s why at ORU we have the Writing Center. Here tutors will work with you individually to help you improve your writing skills. This generally involves reading over a paper together with you, identifying areas you can improve, and providing suggestions for further practice.
For more information about the ORU Writing Center and for information on how to schedule a time with a tutor to help you improve your writing skills visit the writing center page.
The ORU Library has a vast selection of resources that will help equip you in your academic journey. Everything from academic journals to thousands of e-books to one of the largest theological libraries in all of Oklahoma, the ORU library is determined to make sure you have everything that you need for your classes. In addition to the surplus of resources, feel free to ask the librarians about any research question, formatting question, or writing question that you may have. They are eager to see you succeed! Find them located at various desks located throughout the ORU Library.
The ORU Library also makes for a great study location with a computer lab for students to access, printers that can be used with loose change or with your Eagle Card, various study rooms, and tables located all throughout the facility. You may even find yourself running down to Hava Java, ORU’s on-campus coffee shop, located directly below the Library to get a coffee during a study break.
