Student Reviews

Escaping the Sea of Orange and Oklahoma
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

The life at the University is dominating, as it is a large school with 30,000 students in a town of 10,000 people. There are a lot of options and offerings and experiences, but limitations on who is able to take these experiences up. People are generally nice here, but sometimes the school seems so large it no longer cares about the students as much as the tuition money...

At first, I struggled with the direction I wanted to take with my degree. I wish that I had more guidance my first year of University, but after trying multiple classes, I found the perfect major. It was smooth sailing henceforth.
