My cousin took me to visit this wonderful University that he attended. Upon entering the compound we were greeted by a friendly staff member who kindly gave us a tour and taught us about the University's history. The architecture of the Prayer Tower, Chapel and many other buildings were very intriguing with there designs.

All I saw of the university was this amazing sculpture of praying hands, but that was well worth it. Quite an impressive sight. A good photo-op spot.

My son is attending ORU this fall as a freshman, so we made the drive from Minnesota our "Senior Road trip" that I had promised my son we'd take. It was amazing. I went there with zero expectations, and was completely impressed and more importantly, at peace, that my son will be attending ORU! The grounds are gorgeous and peaceful.... More

Moved from the hospital several years ago. Continues to an awe inspiring location in South Tulsa. Look forward to being there again.

I remember well when Oral Roberts claimed that God would kill him if people didn't raise $8 million. I wanted to see the prayer tower where he awaited his fate. Seemed pretty luxurious to me.

Went for a scholarship competition with my future ORU student. Our first visit. Lots of unique architecture. The praying hands are a must see. Every one on campus is full of light. So ready to spend more time in the future, here.
