Christian Life Profile

What is the ORU experience?

It’s a Spirit-empowered, globally-engaged, bold vision-embracing pursuit of excellence that will equip you to go into the world and make an impact for Christ. In short, the ORU experience is LIFE. CHANGING.

For almost 60 years, our award-winning faculty has championed our students in their intellectual pursuits by taking them beyond the textbook for truly experiential learning. With 150+ academic offerings at the bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral levels, you’re sure to find something that fits your interests and abilities. 

A college education isn’t just about a diploma…it’s about an investment in your future. Things like our Quest Whole Leader and Quest First scholarships, customizable payment plans, participation in financial aid, and LEAP loan buyback program all help to ensure that the value of your ORU education is much greater than the cost.   

Spiritual life
What sets us apart? It’s simple. We are built on and dedicated to the Holy Spirit, and we have an unwavering dedication to spiritual integrity. Immerse yourself in a community with student-led worship and prayer movements, local and global mission trips, and twice-weekly chapel services.   

Campus life
We are more than 4,000 students strong, with all 50 states and more than 120 nations represented. Diversity? We’ve got that. We’ve also got 16 NCAA Division I athletic teams, more than 30 student-led clubs and organizations, and a multitude of leadership opportunities. An amazing campus community is kind of our thing.
