For those of you who have been at ORU or were there, who remembers THIS little gem?  That's right, it is the infamous ORU Slim Shady.  I cannot remember for the life of me who actually did it, but I do know they tried to kick him out for it.  I am proud to say that our floor (Dominion) was one of the primary distributors of this song when it came out.  I believe it was 2001, but I cannot be sure. 

Have fun and if you know any other info about it, feel free to share.

Urgent! We need pics from Mid-Con. [Mar. 9th, 2005|09:08 am]

Does anyone have pics of the mid-con women's final game? We at The Oracle do not have pictures, which is really, really bad. So if anyone has some (digital or otherwise, whatever is fine), please please may we borrow them? Actually, I'm pretty sure you can get paid. Please come by the office at LRC 2 and ask for Lindsay or Elaine. We need this by today. Thanks

Bummer... [Mar. 8th, 2005|11:39 pm]

Did anyone else catch the Mid-Con championship game tonight?

It was simply devastating.

Hopefully we can capture an at-large bid to the tourney, but apparently that's pretty doubtful.

First off I would like to again thank everyone for their reply to my previous questions. Sorry I hadn't properly replied.... =/ Life has been busy and a half.

I wanted to ask ya'll about Tulsa, could someone perhaphs tell me what part of Tulsa is like the "good" part, and where it starts getting "bad"? My parental units are wondering because we are looking into hotels for college weekend.

[Current Mood |curiouscurious]

Hello everyone,

If you can, please read through all of this and offer me your feedback. My curiosity got the better of me and I would appreciate some enlightenment! ;o)

I'm a student at Ashland University, a small liberal arts college in Ashland, Ohio. In my English Class last year (which was my freshman year), we read a piece of literature in which Oral Roberts University is mentioned. We discussed it briefly in class, but it was enough to tweak my curiousity, so I went online and checked out ORU's web site. Then, today, when I was searching LJ for Christian communities, I stumbled across this community and I thought maybe you guys could answer some of the questions I had about student life there in general. Please remember, I am in no way "attacking" ORU or its students--I'm just extremely curious about the kind of experiences you guys have while attending there.

Just for some brief background information...my school has 2,600 students, and is affiliated with the Brethren Church. The only rules we have here that hint at the college being affiliated with a church are that 1) We have a dry campus (NO ALCOHOL ALLOWED), 2) we have a visitation policy in effect that requires members of the opposite sex to be out of each other's dorm rooms between the hours of 2 and 8 AM, and 3) every student has to take one religion class before being able to graduate.

We have an active Religious Life department and chapel which offers a Sunday Church service and several different prayer, fellowship, and worship groups that meet during the week, but they do not force us to attend of these events. Other than these things, our college is pretty "typical"--we have sororities and fraternities, athletics, and about 100 organizations. There is no curfew for students other than the "visitation" rule, but they do not have a system to make sure you follow the rule. You can only get in trouble if an RA or Security walks by after hours and hears you inside someone's room--they do not go around checking when it gets to be 2:00. If we want to leave on weekends, we can come and go as we please without informing anyone, though most people at the very least let their friends know where they will be.

What I was wondering is--do any of you feel like they are treating you like kids with all the strict policies they have there--i.e. no dancing, curfews, no guys allowed in girls dorms and vice versa, a stringent dress code, mandatory chapel attendance, permission forms for spending the night in a friend's dorm room, and the like? Do you ever feel like you are missing out on "typical" college life--parties (which are all off campus here due to the "dry campus" policy, which no one really follows anyway), going to bars, the freedom to come and go as you please and make your own rules for living? How do you guys feel about having to adhere to their strict honor code both on AND off campus? What do you guys do for fun there? I know college isn't all about drinking and sex, and I'm not trying to say that those are the only ways to have fun. But it just seems to me like the basic freedoms all young adults should have are severely cramped there. Please correct me if I am wrong. What do you guys feel are the benefits and drawbacks to attending such an evangelistic university?

I was raised Catholic, but definitely in a more liberal fashion (i.e., my parents rarely attend church, usually just on Christmas and Easter). I was thinking that maybe many of you chose this kind of university because you come from homes that live the word of Christ in a strong way, so maybe you guys don't mind all the rules. Personally, however, had I chosen a school even half as strict as ORU, I probably would have wound up transferring somewhere more liberal if not expelled first. ;o)

If you made it this far, thanks for taking the time to read it through and reply. My personal journal is friends-only, but if you want to add me I will add you back. Just be warned that I tell all in my journal. :o)

I have a lot of questions about ORU...can you help please? [Feb. 17th, 2005|02:41 pm]
[Current Mood |contentcontent]

Hi. I'm trying to decide which college to go to. I live in NY. I am either going to go to ORU or Evangel University in MO. There aren't really that many differences between the two colleges besides the fact that ORU is bigger and more expensive. Evangel has a football team and ORU doesn't, but ORU has a swimming pool and really neat PE courses. I don't know where to go and I've been praying about it for about 3 months now. Please, if you can tell me anything absolutely anything about ORU I would appreciate it. Thanks for all of your help.

Few More Questions [Feb. 14th, 2005|04:12 pm]

[Current Mood |hyperhyper]
[Current Music |A Very Loud PC]

So like anyone wanna give me the 411 (oh my gosh, how 1999 of me) on the dorms at ORU? Are all the dorms open to freshmen, are there some that are only for certain whatevers? I wanna get my housing contract in ASAP, and I will receive it soon. So I dunno, what are the bathrooms like, aren't there some dormrooms with bathrooms in them?

**must aquire information**

EDIT: *deleted* (Sorry just amusing myself there. Please excuse me while I stop drinking coffee, NOW.)

Mucho Gracias.

(Oh and I guess wearing chains on your jeans at ORU at all is a most likely no-no? ha.)

Hola [Jan. 27th, 2005|02:55 am]

[Current Mood |curiouscurious]
[Current Music |The Donnas]

Well, I will be going to ORU this coming August. I can't wait!!! I just came accross this community a few weeks ago and figured I'd just post and say hi or something.

So, "hi." Or "something". Yes, that is my failing cliche attempt at being witty.

I have a few questions...

1) So um, anyone want to tell me what exactly "shower shoes" are? lol And if I need to bring them College Weekend.
2) At ORU will I be able to watch my "weekly" TV shows such as "Lost" & "One Tree Hill" or is some cable blocked or something? (Hopefully that made sense...)
3) I really want to be involved with as much as possible while there, clubs and such. What are some that they have there?
4) And also, most importantly, I would love to be able to write for ORU's student newspaper the Oracle, as well. How does one go about this?

Anyways, like I said earlier, I can't wait to come. Its always been my dream to attend ORU and God has opened up the doors for me to.

I'd really appriciate any help.

Thanks & God Bless!
