OC Named One of Region's Top Universities

Oklahoma Christian once again earned distinction as one of the top universities in the western United States in separate lists published by The Princeton Review and U.S. News and World Report.

The Princeton Review listing places Oklahoma Christian among the top 25 percent of all four-year colleges nationwide.

Other Oklahoma universities listed by The Princeton Review were the University of Oklahoma, Oklahoma State University, Oklahoma Baptist University, Oral Roberts University, and the University of Tulsa.

The honorees are determined through institutional data, campus visits, college counselor recommendations, and independent student surveys.

In their responses, students praised Oklahoma Christian for being a college home with a strong focus on God, a family atmosphere, accessible professors, and an attractive location in metropolitan Oklahoma City and adjacent to suburban Edmond.

Earlier this year, The Princeton Review honored OC as one of the top 30 undergraduate schools in the U.S. and Canada to study video game design.

U.S. News and World Report ranked Oklahoma Christian 42nd in the region and second among Oklahoma schools in the “Best Regional Universities” category.

This was the 15th straight year U.S. News and World Report has honored Oklahoma Christian. 

The western region includes Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Oregon, Texas, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. 

Institutions that appear in the “Best Regional Universities” category provide a full range of undergraduate majors and master’s programs.

“OC’s reputation as a first-rate university is well-established, but it’s gratifying to be recognized for the great things happening here, especially as we make a high-quality Christian education affordable for talented students,” President John deSteiguer said.
