College Weekend

College Weekend is Oct. 22-24

College Weekend is this weekend, Oct. 22 to 24. Don't miss the chance to get to know this incredible campus and the amazing faculty, staff, and students.

Visitors will be introduced to the ORU campus, given a feel for residence hall living and the fun of hanging out with friends on Friday night. The weekend activities also include a music department concert, a Night of Worship in Christ's Chapel with ORU Music Ministries, an ORU chapel service, and an ORU's Got Talent talent show. This weekend gives a little taste of the great memories that can be made on the ORU campus.

There will be some informative stuff too. There'll be ACT testing on Thursday afternoon and a chance on Saturday to mingle with faculty and hear about all of the departments and their majors and degree requirements. Sessions on Friday include individual admissions and financial aid counseling, music ministries and athletic sessions, and an honors seminar. There will even be classes to sit in on.

Parents and sponsors are also invited to College Weekend and encouraged to attend all the activities. There will be several events specifically for parents and sponsors such as a special Parents' Reception on Thursday evening, the Parent/Sponsor Luncheon on Friday and the Parent Breakfast on Saturday morning. Parents and sponsors can get an idea of the atmosphere here at ORU and the quality Christian education available.
