Oklahoma Baptist University is located in Shawnee, Okla., a quiet city near a major urban center with access to internships and cultural events.
Shawnee is a city of about 28,000 located 35 miles east of Oklahoma City, 90 miles from Tulsa and 200 miles from Dallas/Fort Worth.
Shawnee has something for just about everyone -- a shopping mall and locally owned shops, a variety of restaurants, a bowling alley, movie theatres (Carmike 8 & Jones Theatres), recreation centers, Shawnee Little Theatre, local coffee shops and bakeries and nearly 100 churches to plug in to.
OBU encourages students to get involved in this unique community. Starting with Welcome Week each fall, OBU helps students serve and connect with the Shawnee community.
