(Caveat): I graduated from here in 1972. The campus buildings range from normal school buildings, to interesting mid-century architecture to more modern buildings. The center-piece of the campus is the prayer tower which is surrounded by the prayer gardens which are beautiful and well kept....More

stopped by to check out the impressive architectural designs of the campus and the different buildings. It is truly a rare gem in the mid centry modern design. The grounds are wonderfully landscaped as well.

Although this visit is not for everyone, it is really a great experience for many. For some, visiting the campus will be like walking on "holy ground". Living proof of one man's faith in God to do something with nothing. It is certainly inspiring to...More

From reading a few tour books, we got the impression that viewing the architecture of Oral Roberts University was a "must see" attraction when visiting Tulsa. It's got a fun/quirky but also tired/dated field. One tour book accurately likened it to an area of Disney...More
