            Professors are Caring Mentors

            I got a great education at OBU. For example, the Western Civ course awoke me to the power and beauty of ideas. However, the most significant part of my OBU experience was the relationships I developed with my professors. I recommend OBU to anyone looking for a Christian liberal arts college.

            Professors Challenge you to Think Critically and Grow Intellectually

            I loved my education at OBU and it informed everything I have learned since. I would highly recommend it as a strong Christian Liberal Arts University. I loved that it was small enough to be intimate but large enough to be challenging and stimulating!
