I love the University of Oklahoma's campus. There are many places indoors and out to study, and the library is absolutely beautiful. The academic advising, at least in my college, does leave a little bit to be desired. I have really had to take the reins with my education to ensure that I do not fall behind because of missed classes. Make sure you print out a Major sheet so you know what classes you have to take. The football games here are the best part of attending this University. There is a Southern Hospitality vibe, and people are polite and friendly to each other, except the bikers might run you over if you are not careful.
I love Oklahoma University it is so free and welcoming, everyone makes you feel like you belong and just walking around campus, there is always some type of sight to see. I remember when I first became a student here everyone was so willing to help and friendly, that was what made me look forward to my college experience meeting new people. What I like the most are all the resource OU has to help there students whether it is academic or financial needs.
