Oakland City University’s “Admit-A-Thon” provides unique opportunity for potential students to apply and get accepted on the same night
OCU is the first local university to present this convenient and time-accelerated acceptance program
Oakland City, July 15, 2019: In an effort to attract new students, Oakland City University is holding its first “Admit-A-Thon” on August 1st from 4 to 7 pm at the Cornwell-Reed Music and Arts Center located on the OCU campus. The fastest route to the university from the Evansville Metro Area is to take I-69 north until you reach Exit 33 (IN-64 E/IN-57 N). All that is needed in order to apply and gain acceptance on the same night are: college transcripts, or official high school or GED results and a copy of your 2017 Tax Returns if your FAFSA has not been completed for 2019.
“This is a perfect opportunity for recent high school graduates who may not yet have a “plan” to gain some life direction and focus quickly and easily,” said Elliott Spruell, OCU Director of Admissions and Men’s Soccer Coach, “It’s also a great opportunity for older, non-traditional students to skip all of the time-consuming and intimidating enrollment processes encountered with most universities.”
Oakland City University is a Christian faith-based learning community dedicated to the enhancement of intellectual, spiritual, physical and social development for positive leadership. The U.S. News and World Report has recognized Oakland City University as one of the top universities in the Midwest. In addition, OCU has been voted as one of the safest colleges and universities in the state of Indiana. The school holds the distinction of being accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC) of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools (NCA).
Oakland City College opened in 1891, in a two-story brick structure that housed the administration and classrooms, on 10 acres of land donated by Colonel William M. Cockrum. The university became fully accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools on April 13, 1977; gained full accreditation by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education in 1981, and expanded its programming to offer five graduate degrees and more than forty undergraduate programs. In addition, the establishment of the Chapman School of Religious Studies provided a home for the only General Baptist seminary in the nation. The college achieved university status in 1995, and during the two decades that followed, school enrollment grew to 2,000 and six new buildings were constructed.
