OBU Ranks Second in State on Top Colleges List, Top 25 in Nation for Christian Schools

September 5, 2018

Oklahoma Baptist University recently ranked second on a list of top colleges and universities in the state of Oklahoma. OBU also ranked 23rd on a list of Best Christian Colleges and Universities in the nation. The rankings were compiled by College Consensus.

College Consensus, a unique new college review aggregator, has a distinct method of ranking colleges and universities. Three categories comprise the ranking criteria: publisher consensus, student consensus and college consensus. These ranking averages are combined to give the college or university an overall score. College Consensus takes into consideration overall price, the amount of federal aid awarded, the number of students enrolled and the number of students who graduate in four years.

Oklahoma Baptist University recognizes several student-run clubs and organizations which cater to a wide range of personal and academic interests,” states a piece on the College Consensus website. “These and other campus events and activities offer students ample opportunity to interact with one another outside of the classroom setting and allow students to develop valuable leadership skills.”

The University of Tulsa ranked first in the Oklahoma rankings, while both the University of Oklahoma and Oklahoma State University ranked below OBU.

The College Consensus ranking of the Best Christian Colleges combines the published rankings of a wide selection of trusted media outlets, with those from some of the more trustworthy student review sites, to determine the overall most highly regarded Christ-centered schools. The pool of colleges and universities defined as “Christ-centered schools” is as defined by the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities. Christian students of all denominations often find that a college experience rooted in their faith is the right choice for them, and with College Consensus’ all-encompassing method, prospective students can trust that their choice passes muster with the experts and the students alike.
