Oklahoma City University is one of the oldest institutions of higher education in the state and was founded in the 1900s as Epworth University. However, the college fell on hard financial times and was forced to close in a few short years, but Oklahoma City College took its place in 1922 with funding from the United Methodist Church. The school changed its name to Oklahoma City University in 1924, and has since continued its growth to become one of the highest-ranked private Christian colleges in the region. With a student enrollment of 2,300 and a wealth of university living option, Oklahoma City University can appeal to all walks of life.
The institution offers a full range of undergraduate, graduate and pre-professional programs with more than 70 percent of its classes containing less than 20 students. Even more impressive is OCU's student-faculty ratio, which is a remarkable 11-to-1. Those living in student housing can explore a wide range of majors in many in-demand fields, such as music, nursing, marketing, communications, finance, business administration and many more.
The campus living experience is also a trademark of an Oklahoma City University education, and students can join one of many sororities, fraternities, student clubs and interest groups. Scholar-athletes can join one of the university's many sports teams, which compete in the NAIA. Men's and women's basketball, wrestling, golf, and soccer are always popular events on-campus.
Oklahoma City also has everything a college student could want in terms of recreational opportunities. The city is home to many museums, world-class restaurants, shopping malls and nightclubs, and sports fans will love attending games of the NBA's Oklahoma City Thunder.
