As an evangelical Christian university of The Wesleyan Church, Oklahoma Wesleyan University models a way of thought, a way of life, and a way of faith. It is a place of serious study, honest questions, and critical engagement, all in the context of a liberal arts community that honors the Primacy of Jesus Christ.
Athletics is an important part of life at OKWU too. The OKWU Eagles play in the NAIA Midlands Collegiate Athletic Conference and offer seven women’s varsity sports and six men’s varsity sports.
Oklahoma Wesleyan University was recently in the news when their President, Everett Piper, made a comment which some deemed “controversial” wherein he claimed that today’s college students are too sensitive and too quick to play the victim card, declaring, “This is not a day care. It’s a university!” when a student complained that he was offended by a sermon that was offered at the campus. Everett went on to say that “A liberal arts academy is about learning. It’s not supposed to be a place to suppress controversial ideas.” If the thought of engaging at a school where controversial ideas are welcomed and discussed openly, then OKWU just might be the school for you!
