Remembering Oral Roberts
It's been one year since Oral Roberts University's founder, first president, and chancellor, Granville Oral Roberts, exchanged life on earth for the joys of heaven. Not a day goes by that we don't reflect on something he said ("Something GOOD is going to happen to you!") or something he accomplished (the 263-acre ORU campus with its 20 buildings and more than 3,000 students, not to mention 37,000-plus alumni).
There are no words to express how much we miss him, how much we owe him, or how much we love him still. ORU is his enduring legacy...and that includes every student and alumnus who eagerly pursued a whole-person education in preparation for ministry in every person's world.
Below are comments that were posted to our websites from people all over the world in tribute to Chancelor Oral Roberts.
