MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT
We have had a fantastic school year at ORU! Enrollment was up (again), the ONEOK Sports Complex opened in October (built debt-free), the International Quest Whole Person Scholarship was introduced (opening doors for more students around the world to attend ORU), and as you’ll read below—we broke ground on a new dorm! We also achieved a freshman fall-to-spring retention rate of 95.51%. Furthermore, ORU’s Class of 2017 notched a placement rate of 97.2%; that means they either found a job or went on to grad school within six months of graduation. (The national average is 81%.) This is the highest placement rate in our history. I am thankful for all God is doing here at this university and for the men and women He is raising up to impact the world—including the Class of 2018, which celebrates Commencement on May 5. I hope you can join us at the Mabee Center at 1 PM for the ceremony. Clifton Taulbert (ORU ’71) is the keynote speaker.
