Home with a View

It’s with indescribable pride and joy that we’d like to give you this little glance at the new Oklahoma Christian University viewbook. 

It’s been a popular piece with future students and their parents since it hit mailboxes, youth rallies and college fairs over the summer.

It’s an overview of our mission central, our lab for life, our big backyard, our quiet place, our memory maker ... our home.

It features info on OC’s mission focus, our first-class academics, campus life, big-league city life, study abroad programs, athletic prowess, and commitment to college affordability. It also profiles some awesome OC students, faculty and alumni (some of whom we’re featuring here in this spread).

Do you need a viewbook for the future OC student in your life? Call us at (800) 877-5010 or email admissions@oc.edu and we’ll send you one in a jiffy.

In the meantime, check out the online version (chock full of videos and other fun stuff) at oc.edu/view.

  • Dr. Amanda Nichols has faith.
She shares it in her classroom and in OC’s state-of-the-art labs. For Dr. Nichols and her students, it isn’t blind faith. Their goggled eyes are wide open as they use OC’s “cool toys” to conduct experiments and get hands-on with God’s creation. 

“You don’t have to compartmentalize science and faith. You don’t have to pick one or the other,” she says. “Everything is very organized in chemistry. That’s no accident. God put it together for us.”

  • David Bowden was the only Christian in the ROOM. 
He wasn’t intimidated. He was inspired. His spoken word poetry brought light into a dark place. His calling has taken him all over the USA ... and to England, India and the Philippines. He’s written poems for Tom’s Shoes and for New York City film premieres.

But his work is more than words. Through Give-A-Goat and Wishing Well, he’s helped poor families meet basic needs. David says, “Art and ministry go hand in hand because we were created by the act of creation. God wants us to continue to create.”

  • Eric and Geri Cope aren’t dentists.
But thanks to them (and you), thousands of kids in poverty have healthier teeth. For every toothbrush you buy from Smile Squared - the company Eric and Geri (Marlatt) started in 2010 - a child in need gets one, too.

One of the Copes’ three adopted kids is from Guatemala, and a mission trip there showed Eric and Geri they could make a big difference with a small product. “Simply put, some children don’t want to smile,” Eric said. “We founded Smile Squared in hopes of giving children their smile back.”
