The Washington Monthly recently ranked OBU as the top baccalaureate college in the state of Oklahoma for 2016.
Washington Monthly, an online and print news magazine in Washington, D.C., differs from other college ranking guides by focusing on what colleges and their alumni do for the country as a whole. The rankings give high marks to institutions that contribute to society, enroll low-income students, help them graduate and don’t charge a fortune to attend.
Washington Monthly also ranked OBU as one of the “Best Bang for the Buck” universities for the Southern region of the United States. This ranking is based on the best educational value for the money based on ‘net’ price, how well universities do graduating the students they admit, and whether those students go on to earn at least enough to pay off their loans.
