The Secret is Out

Oakland City University has always been the best kept secret in Indiana and here’s why:

There is a place for you at OCU!

OCU is ranked #5 in the Midwest for social mobility. We offer a robust campus community for all students to enjoy a safe and welcoming environment where everyone from 1st generation students to non-traditional students feel at home.

At OCU you will be supported!

With over 50 concentrations, not only will you thrive academically, but each faculty member, one for every 12 students, is passionate about forming relationships with each student to ensure your long-term success in your calling and career.

Serving with Distinction

With a Christian worldview, OCU will help you connect your career goals with your call to service.

Explore your calling with Career Pathways.

We are committed to helping you discover your unique gifts and talents, and connecting them to specific opportunities to serve a world in need. It’s called Career Pathways.

Engage in dynamic service-learning opportunities and spiritual life.

Discover exciting ways you can serve on and off campus through your academic interests, tap into spiritual support, and prepare for a life of service to something greater than yourself.

OCU prepared me for situations that take place not only in the classroom, but everyday interactions that take place in ministry.
