This is the place we take all of our friends that come to Tulsa. The tour in the Prayer Tower is a great family event. Plan at least 45 minutes, and don't forget to stop at the Prayinghands. There is parking on the south side.

This is a lovely campus, We did not enter any of the buildings, however the grounds are very nicely landscaped with flowers and nice trees. There are walkways and the praying hands are very inspiring.

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.
