The arena was built in the 70's and has been remodeled some since. In the mid 2000's the team was winning a lot and going to the NCAA tournament often. People would show up and were energetic, but that is not the case now. Still, getting to watch a game in comfortable seats in a +10,000 seat building is a... More

Visit Tulsa and the Mabee Center when there I a Christian concert in town. The facility is always clean and students usually work there. You will always enjoy the campus at ORU.

In year's past we have seen a number of concerts with Michael W. Smith and Amy Grant. It is... More

ORU has a beautiful campus, and the mabee center is a wonderful part of it. It is older, obviously not the BOK center, but it is still a wonderful facility for us to have here in Tulsa.

This is one of the safest places I have ever taken my family and kids too.... With the ORU Basketball, music concerts, and other performances, this is a hidden jewel for families! Thank you ORU for a great family experience!

The cheer parents that had to be there early saved all the seats, not just some but every row, they put purses and coats across all the seats. We had to set at the very top on the side while there were several empty seats but they had people's stuff in them. And some grown men got into a altercation... More

This is a nice venue to go and see performances. There are several configurations that they can set up to accommodate any size of crowd. It is a little older and not as fancy as the BOK Center, but it is nice!

This place is ok. Decent, but not great. They used to have a few more big shows. It can't compete with BOK center. It feels like a deserted ghost town as you walk around the arena. Most everything is shut down and boarded up. There are obvious needs for renovation throughout. Only go here if you absolutely want to watch... More

The epicenter of concert going until the BOK Center came into being. Good acoustics and the circular seating makes for a good seat just about anywhere in the house. It is quite huge, however. Make sure you take note of your exit if you leave and plan on coming back to your seat, for you might get lost.
