  • I am a current student here

    I love being at OBU; the atmosphere on campus is so friendly and inviting. You don't have to worry about not having friends, because the other students will always interact with you, especially at the beginning of the school year to help out the new Freshman. And with fun traditions like the Freshman Beanie, The Walk, and Ka-Rip! what's not to love?

  • Zip Bang OBU!
  • I am a current student here

    The atmosphere of OBU is unlike any other school I've heard about. The student body is on the smaller side so once you're here there are familiar faces all around. I came here not knowing anyone and now I have a lot of really great friends. OBU also has a bunch a super fun traditions that set it apart from other schools. From the minute I got to welcome week at the beginning of the year I knew this was where I was supposed to be.

    I love the entire atmosphere that surrounds the campus. Everyone is SO friendly! My first day here, I was extremely lost, but all I had to do was ask anyone where to go and they personally took me there themselves.
