First Year Experience

Whether you are coming out of high school or transitioning from another University, you will experience a positive community unlike any other at Oral Roberts University.  As soon as you step foot on campus you will feel a change in the atmosphere because people care about people here. You will feel welcomed by your peers, professors, and staff as you begin your journey to be a Holy-Spirit empowered leader. 

At ORU,  we encourage our students to not only be a student but a family member! A great way to experience ORU at its highest capacity is to get involved.  There are numerous clubs and organizations that you can be involved in. Be involved to  meet students just like you and who are interested in the same things you are.  If you would like more information on clubs and organizations please go to  

A factor that sets ORU apart from other Universities is our emphasis on "Student Leadership." Being able to have peers lead peers is a process that we encourage for all students to experience.  We have the best Student Life staff ready to serve and train those who are interested in being a leader to go into every man's world.
