My cousin too me to see this wonderful University that he added. Upon entering the compound we were greeted with such a friendly staff member who kindly gave us a tour and teaching us about the University's history. The architecture of the Prayer Tower, Chapel and many other buildings were very intriguing with there designs. The Praying hands to me... More

We went to see out grandson play baseball for his Elite team. We had never been to this stadium. It is very nice. Easy access ramps to seating. Best of all it has a lot of covered seating! Nice to sit there in the shade with a little breeze.

Wow, as soon as we drove up to the beautiful grounds, got out of our car and started walking towards the chapel we could just feel the peace here. We walked around the prayer gardens and saw what it must have felt like for Adam and Eve in the garden. We walked over to the ORU Prayer Tower and were... More

I had only one interest in going to Oral Roberts University and that was just a drive through so I could see where once was a national basketball contender as they were once a powerhouse. Wanted to also see what the empire looked like that Oral Roberts years ago had done from a building and architectural standpoint. Quite interesting but... More

Regardless of your opinions of Oral Roberts and/or his world view, this university is certainly well worth a look at. Walking around is like stepping back into a 70's dream world. The architecture has an amazing coherent feel. The Prayer Tower, Chapel, Library and Auditorium all mesh into a striking ensemble. The crumbling City Plex complex down the street is... More

Before going, check out the sky view on Google maps for orientation . . . and while there, notice how the university's buildings are all basic geometric shapes. They've got a triangle, a square, a diamond, a pentagon, perfect rectangles and so on . . . Gold and white are the thematic colors of the campus, which in it's own... More

The huge statue of the praying hands is magnificent! This is a most interesting & meaningful area to visit in Tulsa.

It is a relatively small campus and if you have a free hour, I highly suggest a visit here. My review and suggestion has nothing to do with religious feelings. The buildings are the most unusual of any college campus I've ever been on (at least 50). They remind me of what George Jetson would be building for a college... More

ORU is a cool university, but the hands statue at the front is the most memorable thing there. Check them out for a cool pic of an iconic Tulsa site.
