Student Ratings

Overall Rating

I have only visited one time, but was so very impressed. I feel that God is leading me to go to OBU, and I am very excited about my future there. I have already met some people that are also planning to attend. I really enjoyed the "Tiger Tunes" student show that I attended, and I enjoyed the Thursday evening worship experience that we attended. I look forward to being a part of both of these in the future
