The campus of OU has a VERY diverse community. Lots of different people, cultures, and race's attend OU. I personally think that OU makes their diverse community to be a huge deal, when in fact we just need to live normally rather than make it a scene.

In Norman, Oklahoma, the weather is somewhat bipolar. It's kinda stressful at times, but weather is weather and theres nothing you can do sometimes.

Parking could definitely be improved. I feel like OU has put a lot of money into other things such as athletics. This is great for the athletic program, but parking is weak in many areas on campus. Also, the parking service employees act as if they work for the FBI. They are very strict with ticketing and towing.

School is difficult sometimes, but OU makes school fun. The atmosphere, professors, and opportunities OU has makes school very interesting and even fun.

Academics at OU are huge. OU ranks among #1 in the country with National Merit Scholars. Advising, tutoring, and assistance at OU is great as well. Anytime you need help, it is very easy to find someone for you concerning your academics.

The nightclub/bars/party scenes at OU are very fun. Lots of people and places to go to with lots of fun involved. Also, OU has a very safe system that offers students free taxi rides from Thursday-Saturday nights. Absolutely love OU!

OU's greek system is superb. Thanks to some people/student conduct, who have tried to run off OU's greek system, we have come a long way. Everyone who is involved in the greek system loves it, and most people who are not involved, they are eager to join. The chapter houses at the University of Oklahoma are top-notch, some of the best in the country.

OU's Police Department is the best there is. OU PD does a great job of drug trafficking and keeping charge of their campus.

Transportation is nice. I don't like some of the parking, primarily because there is not very much room. The bus works great and the system is perfect.
College Freshman 2013-11-24T05:32:47Z
My experience has been great so far. The campus is gorgeous, people are friendly, and OU has so many degrees to offer.

FOOTBALL FOOTBALL FOOTBALL in the fall! Football games are one of the biggest events to go to and are team is very good. This season they've done very well for themselves and makes me a proud fan. I personally workout everyday and our gym is amazing. They classes for everything, the equipment is not new but it's so well-kept for you couldn't tell the difference between new equipment and the old.

Health & Safety:
I feel completely safe and confident being here at this school. There isn't a street you don't see one of our blue light emergency phones. Campus security is literally as phone call away, and they have safewalk if your not comfortable walking by yourself 24/7. They also have saferide as a way for students to get a car ride home if they are unable to themselves. There's are a few crimes that occasionally happen on campus, but they're so minimal you don't here about them unless it was something pretty bad.

I'm biochemistry but I can't seem to find a lot of biochemistry students just like me. I'm probably not looking hard enough or in the right places but I know there are definitely a lot of them here.

The curriculum is very competitive and geared towards helping students graduate in 4 years or less. The enrollment dates can sometimes be a pain. Students who are apart of special programs, who have earned special awards and upperclassmen get way early enrollment dates then the rest of the rather regular undergraduates. The enrollment in to classes is a breeze. Though it does require some careful planning and balancing of times and class days. As far as workload, it truly does depend on what degree you want to earn. The lower general education class do then to have lots of assignments in store for you though.
When you talk to the professors on campus, they are all really eager to educate their students. They'll provide you with as much help as they can give you, as long as your willing to do the work it takes to pass your classes.

The financial aid process was a very smooth process and I have no complaints there. The only problem I ran into was that I did not receive much financial aid because of the amount my FAFSA says my family can afford to pay. It said we could afford this substantial amount when really we can only afford about a fraction of that number. When I tried to explain my situation to financial advisors, I was told there was nothing they could do for me because of my FAFSA amount. The best they could give me were a couple of loans which paid for a fraction of my $15,000 tuition and we managed to pay for the first semester. Now I need as many scholarships as I can receive in order to pay for the rest of my 4 years in college.

We pretty much have your average chain restaurants and fast food close to campus in Norman. Panda Express, KFC, McAlister's, Raising Canes, McDonalds, Quiznos, Sonic etc. It's pretty much convenience food but nice quality though. If you travel though about 30 minutes north of campus you can find tons more variety for your taste buds in Oklahoma City. The Bricktown area is the best spot for my friends and I. Bricktown has a great bar scene, great barbeque restaurants, and it's a very safe feeling environment.
College Freshman 2013-11-18T00:18:52Z
They're are dozens of great restaurants around the campus offering any food you could think of. Many of them offer a wide variety of foods at a cost that keeps students wallets in mind. Some do, however, a smaller menu size with more options to compensate for the cheaper prices.
College Freshman 2013-11-18T00:15:38Z
i love my school and couldn't imagine myself going anywhere else. From the endless amount of activities to the wonderful people I have met I wouldn't have changed a thing.
College Freshman 2013-11-18T00:14:29Z
You can get anything you want at my university. There are numerous restaurants spread all throughout campus offering all kinds of foods. The cafeteria has the most wide variety for the cheapest price if your feeling experimental though. There are 10 different kinds of restaurants within it and are all you can eat for the small price of $11. This is great for large groups that can't decide on one thing, but other options are available for students who want to save money.

I carpool with my friend and we park in a neighborhood outside of campus everyday. On campus parking would require a $200 permit every year and neither of us want to dish out that kind of money to fight for a spot in the parking garage. Where we park there is always a spot and is only a block away from campus. My friends always complain on how difficult it is to find a spot and how it makes them late for class. We never have that problem and can make it completely across campus in less than ten minutes from our car.

I live off campus, but with my parents in a different city. My University requires freshmen to either stay on campus or live with their parents within a 50 mile radius. Some of my friends do live off campus and all agree on it being a lot cheaper than on campus and more freedom, however it depends on where you stay and is rather difficult to find a decent apartment.
College Freshman 2013-11-18T00:02:29Z
There is a computer lab in every major building at my school. They are almost never crowded, let alone full and operate using the latest software. They also include pretty much any program you will need from basic Microsoft Word to professional design programs like AutoCAD. The internet speed is also the fastest I have seen in this state getting up to 60 MB/second at its peak. The Wifi is also available anywhere on campus at all times. It does offer some difficulties getting past fire walls for obscure electronic devices, but nonetheless offers some of the best internet I have seen. The printing is great for me due to the fact I don't own a functional printer at the moment allowing me to cheaply print out important notes and projects at any of the convenient computer labs. They also give every student a ten dollar credit for printing each semester which is another plus.

I go to the University of Oklahoma; I'm not a big sports fan, but even I know some of the terminology now and whether or not I should wear an opposing color the week after a big defeat. OU is strongly centered around sports, namely football. We have the stadium set dead center of the campus making sure that no one misses it. There are also several other sports programs, but none are as big as the Boomer Sooner football team. The gym is also a great place offered to all students for free giving them pretty much any exercise equipment at their disposal.

The town of Norman is rather small centering it's popularity around the University. I live in Oklahoma City, which is north of it and is a lot bigger. Norman does offer a decent amount of attractions though, including a large casino, several bars and restaurants, and a few shopping centers. I do find the city to rather relaxed and calm which I find very attractive. It is also a very safe area in general.
College Freshman 2013-11-17T23:41:16Z
My college is amazing; it offers everything to its students. From the beauty of the campus to the state of the art classrooms, nothing is left unpolished. There are a countless amount of study areas, computer labs, and relaxation spaces spread out around the campus. The dormitories are a bit standard, besides the athletes dorms, but I don't live on campus so they don't affect me. The food options are great offering a bit of every cultural food in the cafeteria and several other restaurants scattered inside and around the campus. They also offer something to do all the time from the different organizations planning some event nearly every day of the week. Overall, my University has a wonderful variety of options for the students.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
